Food and service are always excellent. I've not had anything that was not good. This is one of my family's favorite restaurants.

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

I am a local and eat at La Carreta quite often. The quality is always consistent, the service always friendly and the entire establishment is always clean. The fried chicken chimichanga is a favorite! You can get the lunch (half portion) and drink for less than $8! Best margaritas in the area!

Eat in or carry out, this is one of several LaCaretta locations in the area. All are very good original mexican food. Look at the parking lot which is full most times, but there is a short wait. I have ate here and their other locations in Kingsport, Tn.. I rank it number 1# if your going for great food!

This is a friendly little Mexican eatery not far from the interstate. They were very generous with their portions and the prices were good. I had the Texas salad and the portions were large, the food tasty and everything was fresh. The service was good and pretty fast at lunch hour. I will definitely eat here on my next Tri... More

Great chips and salsa.....excellent food, drinks cheap and tasty. Being from Southern California, it has been a challenge to find Mexican fod that has a Baja taste. This is the best place I have found in this area. It is alway busy, prices are very reasonable....definately MUST try! They have my business for sure!
