Did a team lunch here today with coworkers and there were various dishes that looked excellent. As a Dallasite who's eaten at many Tex-Mex places, I didn't expect too much from this spot--but was pleasantly surprised at: - The chips: house-made and thick with a good crunch - The salsa: Excellent balance of spice and flavor. also house-made - The...

We didn't have time for a full meal. We had guacamole with a spicy pico . And ordered house special nachos. Prepared with 1/2 chicken and 1/2 beef. We both preferred the chicken side. They forgot the beans.! Not the best nachos we've had. Service was good but we had a hard time with the accents. Clean and bright comfortable... More

Come on now... The "critical" reviews are way too harsh. We are over a thousand miles from the border, so cut 'em some slack - this is actually really good tex-mex !!! Big servings and plenty of flavor. Authentic? Ehhh - what's the point in asking that? Delicious? You betcha. Big bright family friendly dining area with all the typical... More

From the food to the decor, this place is a MUST go too.. Every time I'm back in Derry or thereabouts, I visit this restaurant. The decor is so cool and the staff is so nice and friendly. The food is amazing, so good. The looks are deceiving because of the plaza its in but once your inside its amazing.... More

Got a craving for Mexican food? I highly recommend La Carreta! I have picky eaters, but we are all satisfied with the meals served here. Staff is friendly and food is always served quickly and piping hot!

Chilli Rellenos are great! Margarita Mondays when the Margaritas are half price is a draw (it can get very busy). Waitstaff are all friendly and really hard working. Can't beat the lunch specials and table side guacomole.

We did not have a lot of time but did not want fast food. We were seated right away and our server came over promptly to take our drink order. I do have to agree with a couple other reviews that the chips are terrible. One thing I look forward to in a Mexican restaurant is freshly made tortilla chips.... More
