We got a #3 and a chicken and chorizo w/cheese sauce (it starts with an S). Both were good. Our waitress was slow and they were not busy, think she was to busy socializing. Atmosphere is great, love the seats and designs.

I have been dining at LaCarreta's for many years. The chips and salsa are, by far, the best! The food is always hot, cheesy, and delicious. Fast service. Love this restaurant. My only recommendation would be to improve the check out situation. At lunch time, the line for the one and only check out register may quickly back up the... More

In a town quickly becoming saturated with Mexican restaurants, La Carreta on John B Dennis Highway is consistently the best Mexican food in Kingsport. Quick and friendly service, comfortable surroundings, quality ingredients always properly seasoned and prepared. Hearty portions. Full bar. Can handle couples to large groups. Try the warm crispy chips with their homemade salsa and the best cheese... More

With reviews we thought this would be great. I ordered taco salad. The hamburger had no flavor or spice in it and the chicken had consistency if can chicken. No authentic mexican flare

I recently enjoyed a great dinner at La Carreta while in town for work. The menu had many typical options, and everything I had was great. The waiter was very friendly and fast, and the atmosphere was bright and colorful. I would definitely go back.

One of the best Mexican restaurants we've been to!! We had a burrito that was filled with ground beef, rice and re fried beans. Covered with nacho cheese sauce and fried and crumbled chorizo sausage! Yummmm! We also got a side of their guacamole and a jumbo Texas margarita! Very very good! It was even too much for 2 people... More

A group of parents and kids came here after soccer tournament games in Kingsport. Everything was very laid back and we had no trouble getting a big table. Helped that it was about 6 p.m. on a Saturday night. Food was good and the prices were good on the large draft beers!

We have eaten at this restaurant almost once a week for the last 6 years. It's just a staple in our routine. You cannot beat the fast service anywhere for any price. The food taste fresh. The hot things are hot and cold is cold. Wonderful prices too.

Typical Mexican restaurant menu found throughout the South. Not gourmet but food is always fresh and staff friendly. Restaurant has Mexican themed decor and appears clean and ordered. Food is not expensive with generous portions. Food quality is consistently above average for this type of restaurant. It's always a sure bet.

Some of us from work go here regularly to get some lunch. The service here is quick and efficient. Lunches are very affordable. I typically get the taco salad which is less than $6, and there are other lunches that are less $8-10. They provide a good amount of chips and salsa. The place is very clean. It can get... More
