No matter what night we go there is a line out the door to get a table. My parents know half the staff and ask about their kids. They always get the Carne Asada. It's thin and done so tender you can cut it with your fork. Great mexican in the north.

As a native of SoCal, I grew up on Mexican food. La Carreta would fit right in. The service is great, the food is terrific and the people are wonderful. I've been eating there several times a month for 14 years and it never disappoints.

Victor will make your La Carreta experience that much more. He's polite and timely with everything while you are in his care. The food is by far the best Mexican around and you will not wait more than 10 min for your food. Chips and salsa are the best!

I've been going to La Carreta for almost fifteen years and they've been consistently exceptional in quality, price and service! I can't vouch for authenticity but seems like the real thing to me

I do work in quite a few restaurants and this one is one of the cleanest I have seen. They are so efficient and the service is excellent. Plenty of meat in all the dishes. As close to real Mexican food as you can get in the Northeast.

This is a typical Mexican restaurant. The food is good, but not outstanding. The menu is extensive and salsa and chips are served while you wait for your order. Service is good and fast. I would recommend this restaurant for a quick, cheap, and good Mexican restaurant.

Best Margurita's in town. Nice bartenders. Food needs to step up but acceptable. Side dish chicken with vegetables is my fav.
