Everytime my girlfriend and I are in Knoxville we stop at Senor Taco. The food is always so flavorful and just so good. We try something different every time we have stopped in and each time it just gets better. One of out favorite places to eat.

I love going to Senor Taco! Their food is wonderful. The menu has regular mexican food, but some innovative dishes as well. Everything is prepared well and tastes great.. Now for the important stuff... their margaritas are just perfect. No need for a top shelf, their regular margarita is very good, only get the jumbo because the normal size is... More

This was by far the worst "Mexican" food I have ever had. The chicken tasted like they had drained some canned chicken noodle soup, saved the chicken and then threw it into a stale corn tortilla. Then they took the peas and carrots and put them in bland rice. The beef was unrecognizable as such; just brown, grey mush. When... More

Tried for Sunday lunch based to TA reviews and the great menu on the website. This is not a "hole in the wall" but there is a lot of 'real" Mexican items not normally found in Mexican restaurants away from the Southeast.....such as posole and menudo....which were Sunday specials. There are a lot of choices...many of them seafood choices. They... More

I was traveling through Knoxville recently and I stopped for lunch at Senor Taco based on the great Trip Advisor ratings. I travel every week and dine out frequently. Usually I find the Trip Advisor reviews line up perfectly with the establishment, but my experience this time wasn't quite what I was hoping. Since I travel a lot, if you... More

Hungry one night in east Knoxville, my friend and I decided on Senor Taco. One of the best decisions I've made! The salsa bar is wonderful and the food was just as good. I had some kind of chicken and pineapple dish that was a huge portion. He had the fish...which is a whole cooked fish (head, tail, bones and... More

This little Mexican restaurant is my favorite. If you are traveling through Knoxville, it is worth the stop for lunch or dinner. Just take the Broadway exit and go north from Interstate 40, or south from interstate 640. This is advertised as a Mexican seafood restaurant. There are not any bad entrees on the menu, but my favorites are the... More

I've been to Senor Taco a few times now and have enjoyed it each time. For people who like seafood- there is a TON of interesting and seemingly authentic Mexican seafood dishes to choose from. The salsa bar has about 5 different salsas (from mild to screaming hot) with fresh cilantro, limes, onions etc as well. The service, while friendly,... More

Fish Tacos and Top Shelf Margaritas are excellent! Check the board for daily specials, as they are great bargains! Salas bar to pick your own dip Is Great!

Senor Taco is the type of locals only secret that these food and travel shows seem to love profiling nowadays. The casual atmosphere and friendly staff make it a very enjoyable experience, while the food runs the gamut of routine commercial Mexican fare to more exotic organ meats and seafood dishes. They also have a variety of fresh salsas served... More
