Ok food great atmosphere ok service

It could be better and there are better Mexican choices in the area. I would still recommend to try. Just not my favorite. If I went back, I would hit their beer garden.

The building this restaurant is in is connected to a bar. When you walk around to the door you pass the bar that states 21+ only. Upon arrival they tried to seat us in the bar. The restaurant was pretty empty at this point. Not only was it hot but it smelled really smoky (there was a guy

The food was good and the atmosphere was friendly. We are from Texas so we like TexMex and this place delivered. Convenient to the Aquarium and downtown.

It's okay. It's different. It's authentic but not really. Queso dip is not that good, but the amount of food is well worth it!

I was amazed at how good the food was! Best quesadilla I have ever had and it was only $7.25!! Not to mention, it was HUGE!! My sister got a burrito and after eating half, she was full! I will make sure I go back everytime I am in Pigeon Forge!! The prices are low and the food is awesome!!!
