So so food. Wait staff did their job but this is nothing to write home about. I'll never be back. Nothing spicy everything tasted like the next thing. Price was OK but there are better choices

We took a motorcycle trip to east TN and NC. On the way home we stopped for the night in Caryville. Hotel said that this was the best place to go. We had 10 people and great service. With that large of a group we seem to at least have one or more order wrong. But our food came out... More

Unless you're wanting a fast food chain, there isn't a lot to eat in town. However, we decided we would give El Pueblito a try one night coming off the lake. Excellent food and the service was the same. Will definitely be back.

Was camping at Cove Lake and just was craving Mexican. Wow this place was great! Was there around 2pm so no crowd and no wait. The service was great and so was the food. Would recommend to anyone wanting a good Mexican meal and would go back again for sure!

Always stop here when at the lake. Great food and drinks, fast service. Tell them when it's someone's birthday, but don't tell the birthday person. Just sit back and enjoy the surprise!!!

Had dinner here and we found the food to be decent. Very moderately priced. Loved the decor. We would go back. Service was very fast and margarita was good.

Great food and friendly servers! Don't know what I'ld do without this place.generous portions, busy place on weekends. If it's your first time, ignore the torn and worn seats, the food is awesome. The worn chairs speak for the frequent visits.
