It wasn't bad, but not great either. If you really are in the mood for Mexican food go ahead and stop. If you can eat something else go there.

When in Gatlinburg we usually try to eat at least once there! The food is very good, the service is quick and they are always friendly! They make good Margaritas too!

No way Jose has delicious authentic Mexican food. It's very nice inside and the service is good. I got the #11 with is a chicken tamale and cheese enchilada. It was very good. Their salsa is so fresh and tasty. I don't normally even like Mexican food. Must try!!

Stopped in for lunch. Service was excellent as my wife and were greeted with friendly smiles and prompted service. Waitress continued providing great service during the meal. However, my wife and I both thought the food was just ok. Although our lunch arrived quickly, it just wasn't anything impressive in terms of taste. Compared to so many choices in the... More

I was really looking forward to this place but was disappointed. When I first drove up, there were beer cans laying in front of the door. This was right after they opened. Wasn't sure how they didn't see them when they unlocked the front door. The atmosphere is nice but food bland. The salsa was very watery although the chips... More

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.
