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.

Typical mexican with combination lunch and dinners. But the food is always in good portion and hot. The chili Relleno's are the best i've had. Lot's better than Lacarettas.

We had trouble finding a place still open after 7 pm. They were and was packed with local families (always a good sign). The Asada was great and the Carnitas was above average.

We visited on a Sunday evening when most other eating venues were closed. I'm glad we picked Molcajetes, the service was brisk and helpful, explaining the dishes. We enjoyed shrimp seared in bacon ,note 12 giant shrimp,and chimichangas which were cooked brilliantly. And such good value we couldn't believe their prices. We will return if ever back in Kingsport
