They bring good Mexican-themed food to the Smokies.

Whenever I'm in east TN, I have a craving for the food that this restaurant serves. Take the time to experience their service and their good food.

We visit this place often, me and my husband. Typical fare, but oh so good! Their tacos are light and crispy, salsa is my bueno! If you like spicy ask for their green tomatillo hot sauce! Made in house and so tastey! Hot! But tastey! I almost always get the same thing, number 4 combination, 2 tacos, 1 enchilada, and... More

The food here is quite good and the service is excellent. I love their "Nachos Supremas"!!!! We eat there at least once a month.

Our Food was Delish!! This is one of the best Mexican places I ate in a while. We haven't been here in a few years, moved away. Staying down the road, and we hope it was the same. YES, it is. So glad you are the same GREAT food.

We were a group of six at noontime. We were seated right away and our server did a super job getting our drinks and food orders. Decor was nice and the places looks to be very clean. Chips and salsa is good. Food was decent but it was not really very warm. Plate was hot but the food should have... More

I have never had a bad experience here. The decor is bright and tastefully done. The service is excellent so the warm chips and salsa arrive immediately and are delicious. I've had enchiladas, tamales, burritos and fajitas that are equally delicious but the best thing that I've had that makes everything a "notch above" there is the pico de gallo.... More

We nick-named La Carreta "Taco Island" ..hehee Me and my husband love their taco's (hard shell of course). They hand shred the cheese and is fantastic! quick service, huge menu, and quaint décor make for a fun lunch or dinner. Prices are great, and follow on facebook and ask for a 10% of your dinner! I always seem to gravitate... More

Our business is located near La Carreta in Newport and we have tasted almost everything on the menu. We have never been disappointed! We have a wellness center,so most of our staff likes more health conscious meal options and the owners, cooks, and servers are always glad to prepare things based on our needs. Staff meeting favorite!

We eat here at least once a week and it is fantastic and very affordable. Highly recommend the shrimp and chicken fajitas and the chicken taco salad.
