Great "find" in Kingsport while visiting Have seen for years but never had the occasion to stop. Truly authentic as well as authentic patrons, which is always a good indication. Wonderful, fast, attentive service. When eating Mex, as we travel, the benchmark has always been Tacos de Carne Asada....these were the best we have had anywhere, hand made fresh corn... More

Very busy even for a late lunch. Several tables of Mexicans eating here sold me as well! It's as good as any Mexican restaurant in cities with larger Hispanic... More

We have dined here numerous times and this time on our anniversary! We were seated promptly, given menus, and drink orders were taken. Hot nachos and salsa, along with ordered queso dip came within 2-3 minutes, along with our drinks. The food is hot and fresh, very authentic. Chile relenos are excellent here, as well as enchiladas, and tamales. the... More

Good food, staff and pricing. They are quite a lot like the La Carreta's locally, but without having to drive to one. Pricing is very reasonable and food is great.

the food is fresh, the service is good. Mexicans work and own the place . I see Mexicans eating there all the time, which is a plus. some Mexican restaurants in the area you will never see a Mexican eat at the completion of other mex. rest. the people are friendly, comfortable clean surroundings.

Molcajetes does have good food, but it has changed so much since the family members split. The best thing there is that they have homemade corn tortillas. When I eat here i always get a seafood plate, because is always has great flavor. This restaurant also gives good portion sizes.
