Loved the special la casa 10 years ago. I had it when I visited over thanksgiving this year. The cheese was thick and heavy and it didn't taste fresh. Also, the place was kind of dirty. My wife had a fairly nasty looking taco salad. The salsa was eerily similar to pace or some other store bought brand. I miss... More

The parking lot was nearly full, but we only waited 10-15 min until a table opened up. Orders came out quicker than I expected. I didn't hear one complaint about the food. Portions were just right. Nobody left hungry!

I have eaten here many times in the past and ate there again today. It is ok food. Not great. Ok service not great. Salsa is good. I had the fajitas and they were fine. This is the kind of place that I never pick to eat, but will go there if someone else picks.

This has always been the Mexican restaurant we go to in our hometown. Always good and fast food. My kids love coming and the food is a reasonable price. Will be back!

The food & service are exceptional every time! Although the food is very good for a great price, the service is always top notch! All of the wait staff are very attentive to the needs of their customers. I give the food an A & the service an A+!

When I'm craving Mexican this is where I go. The food is fast, fresh and not too expensive. The staff is always friendly and always fast!! Two thumbs way up and don't pay attention to the negative reviews. Everyone can have an off day. This place is consistently good.

We stopped here because the parking lot was full. It did not disappoint! I had an enchilada and tamal combo plate and was very full and happy. Speedy service, good food and a great price! Our family of four ate for less than $30.

I ate here twice,while visiting family. Both times my sister and I had the same thing. I had the chicken fajitas and she had the spinach quesadilla. Very good! Their salsa is fresh with just the right amount of heat and their margaritas are wonderful! I would recommend this family run Mexican restaurant to anyone visiting Kingsport!

Wow. The best Mex food I've ever had! The place was so clean you could eat off the floor, the walls or the tables themselves. Kind of different for a Mex restaurant. Food was delicious especially the caso. You must try their coronarita. Off the charts!

We were hesitant to eat at La Carreta because of the comments on Trip Advisor that mentioned poor service. Our service was exactly the opposite. The waiter was very good and made sure that everyone had everything that they needed. The food was ok, but the service was excellent.
