Our 2nd time eating here. Very good and worth the drive

We ate here last year in November 2014 for the first time and loved it. We decided to eat here again in March 2015. The food taste really good and fresh. We love their chips and white cheese dip. Also had really good service.

All food was fresh and easy to accommodate my gluten free allergy. Boys loves the enchiladas and they are very particular about their enchiladas

Everyone working was very friendly. Unfortunately, that's the only positive I can say about the place. While visiting Bryson City for our anniversary, my wife and I stopped here for dinner. My "Nachos Mexicanos" consisted of what was most likely packaged beans, beef tips, guacamole, and pickled jalapeños over chips. The shredded iceberg lettuce was fresh, all 10 or 15... More

I found the food to be OK but the Margaritas to be very good. I come to Bryson often and have done so over the past 6 years but never ate here. I had the cheese enchaladas which were fairly bland. Being from West Texas and know excellent mexican food this was not it. Service was good. I would go... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant after seeing several advertisements on our way into Bryson City from Knoxville. We thought the service was good as our table was continuously checked on. Food tasted mediocre although was very very pricey. 16 dollars for fajitas for one person. As we left we both felt overly full for not eating too much.... More

I have a vacation home in the Nantahala Gorge so I routinely eat at this great restaurant. It's worth my 26 mile roundtrip drive to get there. The food is always plentiful and delicious and the staff always friendly and efficient. It's tucked away in a little strip mall and may not look like much from the outside, but it's... More

Most towns have that one good go to Mexican restaurant. This was one of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever eaten at. Standard offerings but my Enchiladas Verdes was the best ever. Not floating in Verde sauce and also topped with fresh parsley and onions. Was afraid the amount of onions would be overpowering but it wasn't. Hubby has... More
