We eat here every time we come to Pidgeon Forge. We always order nacho's and drinks. Instead of using shredded cheddar cheese, they put on a liquid melted Velveta. The hamburger was not seasoned. It's just not the same. We do like that we can now get mixed drinks with proper ID. Our server was also not attentive at all.

This place was not on my original itinerary ;) but it was walking distance from the Clarion Inn so we decided one night to try it out since it was so close and didn't feel like driving. I was very pleased with the food, chips and salsa and margaritas were delish!! I ordered the Juanita's chicken and sour cream enchiladas... More

We love riding down to No Way Jose's Cantina in Pigeon Forge for the day from Kingsport. The food is wonderful, the service is great, and the atmosphere is just like being in Mexico. This is a must-visit restaurant especially if you love Mexican food!

We waited longer to get our waiter to our table than we did for our food after we ordered. They brought our food out very quickly and it tasted great for a great price too. Right down from a lot of shopping and our hotel.

We have eat at No Way Jose's every time that we come to Pigeon Forge and yes we have had issues before, but this was the worse. We do love their salsa, I will give them that. But when we order something and we know what we order and what we are suppose to be getting, well then that is... More

The food was average but the salsa is terrible. I guess it's a change from all the BBQ and fried southern food in the area. Probably won't visit again.

We are big Mexican food lovers and eat at these types of restaurants all the time. I come from a Mexican background so it's easy for me to recognize authentic food. I'll say that it was really good. Portions were not as big as most Mexican places I've been but quality was good. Would recommend.

We had a nice young waitress it was her 5th day on the job and did a great job. I had the Carne Asada and my wife had the taco and anchilada combo and we both enjoyed our food very much. The portions are pretty large so come hungry!!!!!.

Showed up at 9:30 only to be told they were closed, after calling around 7 and being told they were open till 10pm. Apparently, they've got all the business they can handle. Go somewhere else.
