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.

Was ignored by the entire wait staff and when we finally got to eat the food was lukewarm. The waitress we spoke to laughed at us when we told her the food didn't seem fresh. I have been many times before but now it seems like every time I go someone is rude and the food isn't hot. I can... More

This was a wonderful little restaurant! Excellent food and service. We were probably 10th in line waiting to be seated, but it was not very long before we were seated. Very impressive!
