We eat here at least once a week and it is fantastic and very affordable. Highly recommend the shrimp and chicken fajitas and the chicken taco salad.

The service and food here were excellent but the restaurant's cleanliness left much to be desired. Not sure if we'll return but since it was our first time here we might give it another try. Everyone deserves a 2nd chance.

Great service and atmosphere...food has always been great and plentiful. They speak English and don't laugh at my Spanish spoken with an Appalachian accent.

Just extremely mediocre everything. Felt unclean, we were seated in a table that had not been wiped down, after delivering our drinks, our server did not return to take our food order for about another 20 minutes or so. Our order was taken down by another server, who had watched us sit there sit looking around for the return of... More

The food here is absolutely wonderful. It is a great Mexican restaurant and everyone is so very friendly, but it does not appear to be clean. Sadly, I have quit going to this restaurant.

We ordered the pico de gallo, and it was quite good...it had a lot of fresh avacado in it. My husband had carnitas and said they were tasty, and I had tamales (they were good, but I have had better). The really bad thing about the meal was the fact that our waitress took our orders, brought our food, and... More

We were on vacation and after a long day of being tourists in Gaitlinburg we were all ready for food close to the cabin we all stayed in. We drove 10 minutes to Newport for mexican food. We didn't know what to expect but we got a delicious dinner! My sister, who is extremely picky, even liked the food! Three... More

We are locals and eat at this establishment at least twice a month. It is an outstanding value. Although the food is not of the caliber of the big-city restaurants like Chey's, it is very good, and the wait staff is very accommodating. Try the made to order Pico de Gallo made with fresh jalapenos, onions, cilantro, and tomatoes for... More

I have mexican restaurants in my town but this place is worth the drive. I think it's a chain but the owners have been the same for years. Have never had food here that wasn't great.
