Great food, especially the carnitas. Highly recommended. My wife had fajitas, which were excellent as well.

Food was great. Service was great. Handled a big party. No complaints. We had a group of around 15 with half of them 8 year old boys. Server was very efficient with the group and the checks.

After eating there twice I don't plan to return. No matter what you order it all looks and tastes the same. It is almost as if all menu items were prepared together and just dished out. Service was just ok.

My wife and I stayed at meadow view and looked for a nearby restaurant for a quick dinner. We opted for Mexican and chose La Carreta. Big mistake. Walked in and were seated by the kitchen and the manager doing his paperwork. With hardly anyone in the restaurant, it was amazing this was where the hostess seated us. Perfect table!... More

The title says it all. I had the Chorri Pollo. It was a very large portion, plenty left over for a late night snack in the hotel. Everything was very good. Service was adequate. I was a little disappointed in the salsa.

My husband and I and I ate at this restaurant in Kinsport on the recommendation of front desk staff at the Holiday Inn Express. The food was very good, full of flavor, and reasonable. Service was also very good. Would definitely eat here again if we were in the area.

Went with a group at an off time 3:30. The service was slow and the food was average at best. It just did not seem like the La Carreta that I remember. Had the food not been so bland or had the service been a little quicker I would have given it a four rating. I always try to give... More

Immediate service. Super hot and top quality, authentic Mexican food. They're always packed, but you'll be in and out as quick as you want.
