This is our go to Mexican restaurant for the tri-cities. Love the enchiladas supremos and the steak and shrimp. Everyone is super nice there and restaurant is always clean. Perfect for date night!

We eat here frequently! Whether it be my husband and I or the whole family sometimes I stop in for a quick lunch with my mother! Can't and won't complain! From the moment we walk in until we exit the building we are pleased! The food is delicious, hot, fresh, and fast!

I live close by & have eaten here several times. Everyone is always very friendly. The food was & is always very good. They got 1 order wrong out of our party of 9, but they quickly corrected it. The restaurant was clean & free of clutter/messes. Will definitely return.

Our girls soccer team likes to go here. Great location and something for everyone to enjoy. I like the furniture much better at the Kingsport restaurant, because it comes from Guadalajara. Takes me back!

around the area, but it is still very tasty. I love La Caretta. It is comfort food to me. Have never had a better cheese dip. Anywhere. Ever. It's just the style I like. Quick service and great eats.

Thank crazymclazy
