This is our favorite Mexican food restaurant. We usually order the Texas Nachos and they are a meal in themselves. The Lunch and dinner specials are always good and very family friendly. We have seen parties there and luncheons. Good wait staff and Generous portions.

I've dined here nearly 100 times since this location has opened, and nothing has changed. The food is great, the margaritas are the best in NWI and the service is fantastic....if you haven't tried it you are missing out!!

We have been a regular at La Caretta for several years. We think there Margarettas are the very BEST! We have had almost everything on the menu and all is very good. The staff is very friendly and fun to talk to.

I went knowing of the food from the other locations. If you like chipotle then you will love this place, similar concept but bigger portions( the burrito was almost twice the size) for the same price!
