This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in the Kingsport and TriCities area. The Camarones Chipotle is excellent and has the true heat and spice of authentic Mexican cuisine. It is low key and a great place to eat and converse.

We went to eat at El Loco Taco but found it closed on Mondays, so decided to eat here since it was across the street. It was nowhere as good as El Loco Taco. But if you are a fan of La Carretta's, you will be happy. Average fattening food just like theirs. Lesson learned. Go to El Loco Taco... More

Great "find" in Kingsport while visiting Have seen for years but never had the occasion to stop. Truly authentic as well as authentic patrons, which is always a good indication. Wonderful, fast, attentive service. When eating Mex, as we travel, the benchmark has always been Tacos de Carne Asada....these were the best we have had anywhere, hand made fresh corn... More

I was pleasantly surprised to find this Mexican restaurant in Kingsport. The food is well prepared and fresh. The menu is traditional with something for everyone. Staff are friendly and efficient. Very busy even for a late lunch. Several tables of Mexicans eating here sold me as well! It's as good as any Mexican restaurant in cities with larger Hispanic... More

We have dined here numerous times and this time on our anniversary! We were seated promptly, given menus, and drink orders were taken. Hot nachos and salsa, along with ordered queso dip came within 2-3 minutes, along with our drinks. The food is hot and fresh, very authentic. Chile relenos are excellent here, as well as enchiladas, and tamales. the... More

Good food, staff and pricing. They are quite a lot like the La Carreta's locally, but without having to drive to one. Pricing is very reasonable and food is great.
