We eat here often and we have never been disappointed. No complaints. We love the chips & salsa, food, music, atmosphere, & service. It's always a fun time with great food.

Always enjoy our visit to La Carreta! Fast, friendly service in a comfortable atmosphere. All of the locations are great, but this one seems to be a little friendlier than the others.

There are so many La Carretas to pick from in the TRI parish area. However, La caret Amite location is the best. The Owner of this particular La Carreta is what makes his different. Its still all about the food and the love for creating great food for his customers. I will drive 35 minutes extra just to come to... More

Arrived at around 4pm the place appeared empty and the staff was sitting around chatting. I was noticed and someone came over and seated me. I changed booths when I observed someone I was working with eating by herself. We were the only ones in the restaurant. I ordered their Quesada Vera Cruz with grilled chicken.

Living in San Antonio as I do now I've been exposed to some really top notch texmex and so when I travel I'm somewhat more picky about which ones I eat at on the road. These guys had some of the absolute best steak fajitas I've ever had, will definitely be going back here next time I'm in town.

We brought a family group here for lunch and were disappointed in the taste of the food this visit. The atmosphere is very friendly and the service awesome but the taste will make us reconsider talking a group here again, at least in the near future. We will give them another chance though.

My husband enjoys the shrimp chimichanga which is delicious but too fattening for me. I like the Monterey Shrimp because it's tasty but healthy, grilled shrimp with rice and veggies. The sauce is on the side Their chips are always fresh and warm with good picante sauce

Need to serve fresher food, because if you ever tasted Mexican food at home, you would know theirs is no fresh

A big group of us stopped in for dinner after work one night. The margaritas were very good. Good flavor, not too sweet and had a good punch of alcohol. The food was good, I got the fajitas and enjoyed them. He service was a little slow but that is my only complaint.
