We had planned on eating lunch at the Old Mill Restaurant until we discovered just how much of a tourist attraction it was. Traffic on the road in was backed up and the line into the restaurant was equally as bad. We ended up driving through Pigeon Forge and it was like driving through Orlando with all its obscure little tourist trap attractions and chain restaurants. We ended up turning around in Sevierville and stopped at La Carreta Mexican Restaurant.
They brought chips & salsa to the table and the chips were warm & Loren enjoyed the salsa.
I ordered some queso and thought it was odd that there were two tortillas floating in the middle of it.
It had a little zing of jalepeno in it, but it wasn’t overly spicy. Loren ordered the lunch fajitas and I got a chicken chimichanga.
Overall, the food was ok. The guacamole was really mild, but that’s the way I like it. The chimichange was crispy and the refired beans were good. It’s relatively inexpensive and worth the $19 if you’re just looking for a quick lunch.
