Soccer team favorite

Our girls soccer team likes to go here. Great location and something for everyone to enjoy. I like the furniture much better at the Kingsport restaurant, because it comes from Guadalajara. Takes me back!

around the area, but it is still very tasty. I love La Caretta. It is comfort food to me. Have never had a better cheese dip. Anywhere. Ever. It's just the style I like. Quick service and great eats.

Went to La Carreta after church. Liked that they had the lunch menu on Sunday! Food was good and really enjoyed how fast we were seated

The prices are right, the service is good, the food is good and the prices are reasonable. The point is that nothing stands out in any way. My food was served fresh and hot, my iced tea was refilled frequently. Will I go back? Probably. Will I go out of my way to go back? Probably not.

In the Tri-Cities area of Upper East Tennessee, go to Gray, Tn in the center of the area, just off I-26, and very close to I-81.

I read reviews and some not so good, I wonder where you would find good mexican food? I have ate at several of the LaCaretta locations in this area and all are great, fast service. Again check out the parking lot that is packed! A very good indicator of the food you will get. Applies most anywhere. But LaCaretta in... More

We eat at La Carettas in Kingsport and Colonial Heights, and they are great. This one, not so much. Cute restaurant, nice decor, etc, but the food is very bland and not the same as the other ones. And the cheese dip is more like cheese water. Really, this is not a one time thing. Every time I have been... More
