When you go in the atmosphere is excellent. We were seated immediately (party of 7 adults&one 2 yr old). We looked over the menu while the waiter was getting our drinks, he returned with salsa & chips. The salsa was disgusting, it was runny, oily & the only thing you could taste were onions & the chips were all greasy.... More

Is this the most authentic Mexican food? Of course not, but it's good and it's consistent. Sometimes that's exactly what you're looking for! I always get the veggie fajitas since this is one of the only places that I have found that include yellow carrots and broccoli in that dish. It's really good!

We arrived late, 9:30-ish on a Sunday, and were seated promptly. We were a party of 7 - some really liked their food, some just thought it was okay, but none thought it bad. The biggest problem was that the waitress kept calling me "lady", which seemed rude. Not "ma'am," but "lady." What would you like to drink, lady? Do... More

The food was so-so, and the prices didn't reflect the quality. The service and the tiny teaspoon of corn cake you get with entrees were this place's only redeeming attributes.

I am loathe to be so harsh in a review, this one deserves it; waste of calories. We ordered 2 chicken ultimate tacos: Shredded chicken, lettuce, tomato in a crispy corn shell, wrapped in a flour tortilla with melted cheese between. Sounds good right? How can that combo end up tasteless? No idea...they mastered that sorcery here. Salsa was spooned... More

The Wife and I have visited both the Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg restaurants and have been very pleased on every visit. The Food is Great and the price is very reasonable. The Service has been excellent. We will continue to visit while in the area.
