We go out of our way to eat here every December. This is the one place that treats our taste buds in anticipation of our beloved and favored Mexican dishes for the next 5 months. We could go to other border crossings but choose to stay in Laredo largely because of La Carreta. We have not gone to the other... More

Delicious food, authentic Mexican restaurant. Ample seating for larg dinner parties. Patio seating when outside temps are not 107 degrees. chips and homemade salsa start the meal. The chicken fajita plate was plentiful, couldn't finish. Homemade tortillas!

This place had the best Carne asada ever! conversation was difficult though thank to the mariachi band -- great if you want high energy ambiance, bad if you are trying to visit with family. Had to ask four times for water. Other than that, a great little place!

The wait staff was friendly and we were able to communicate. The best part were the homemade flour tortillas cooked for your order. We also enjoyed the soccer game... More

Was recommended by co workers so I thought I would give it try, and so glad I did. I had a beef fajita and it was the best fajita I had ever had, hands down, not even close. I had some sweet bread afterwards and came away stuffed, and best meal for your money.

Love the mesquite flavored meats; that unique flavor synonymous with Texas blended with the dishes specific to La Carreta are something I never miss out on every time I visit Laredo. The service is EXCELLENT, and I am always made to feel like family when I visit. La Carreta has a great ambiance and feel to it, very clean and... More
