Restaurant details
Reviewed September 27, 2012

The chips and salsa are the best around...home made chips and salsa - nothing from a jar or can as it is with La Carretta in Kingsport. The chips and salsa and El Potrillo are like they USED to be at La Carretta many years ago. The entrees are fresh and very good also. I would highly recommend this place to anyone. They do not serve alcohol at this location but do at their Gate City VA location.

Have been drug there several times by business associates.
Place is dreadful. In parkinglot of flea bag motel (Church Hill Inn) out in boondocks.
Frozen Banquet "mexican" dinners offer better fare. Salsa very bland (just crushed tomoatoes?)
food unappetizing in appearance, and taste similar to cardboard.
Not once have I received my correct order..servers nod and just bring you whatever they want.
Restaurant appears filthy inside and out.
No alcohol, so no beer to wash down your bad food....local ordinaces to blame.
On the plus side, it's closed several days per week.
