We stopped in here for Supper one night and it was excellent. Was with a large group and we were well taken care of. The following day, we sat on the patio and just took a break from the day with a couple of beers and chips and salsa. Again, we were well taken care of.

This restaurant is usually pretty busy, but the wait staff seems to always be able to provide good, personalized service. Our last visit was no exception, it was busy, but our server, Jesus, took very good care of us. Three of us ordered different meals and all of them were very good. This restaurant has a good selection of beers,... More

The taquitos are delicious! New York quesadillas aren't always on the menu, but if you like quesadillas ask for one and they'll make it for you; it comes with a small cup of their yummy queso!

I love, love, love LaCarreta in Gardner, but not Lansing. I've tried it two times... both times the chips were stale, the servers weren't as friendly - more rushed and the food was just "eh" compared to Gardner. Today, the beef on the nachos and in the fajitas tasted like liver... seems like cheap beef. I will go to La... More

I chose this restaurant based on Tripadvisor. It was a great choice. I had the two seafood enchilada special and it was fantastic. Others have commented about the chips and salsa. They were definitely above average. Service was friendly and prompt. My water glass never had a chance to get empty. My seafood enchilada dinner was tasty and filling. It... More

Every time we are in town visiting family we eat at this restaurant. The white queso dip is a go to appetizer. Always delicious. Each meal comes with complimentary chips and salsa. The specials are excellent. The chicken wrap is highly recommended. Great authentic Mexican for stay or go.

One of the main reasons we keep returning to La Carreta is because of the Chips and Salsa. The Salsa is the best we've found outside the Blue Goose in Dallas. If you are lucky, you'll get Ruben for a waiter; he makes sure you get all you ordered, quickly and piping hot from the kitchen. He also makes sure... More

Good food, good service, generous quantities. Lunch specials. What's not to like? Oh, and they serve Diet Dr. Pepper.
