Good Food!

Went for dinner with a group of 20 and they accommodated us well. The food was really good but service was a little slow.

We've had better. Salsa was a bit watery. I did enjoy the margarita. Food was average. Floors were very slippery throughout the restaurant, especially the women's bathroom. Don't think we would come back. Not impressed. Service was okay.

If you're in the mood for a mexican dish, I would highly recommend No Way Jose's Cantina in either Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg near the Ripley's Aquarium. I've eaten at both and enjoyed my meal each time. A large selection of dishes and happy hour on margarita's to boot!

Ate lunch on a Saturday with family group of 9; seating was fast and wait service was exceptionally good. Everyone had something different from the menu including tacos, tamales, enchiladas, fajitas, and queso appetizers. The salsa/chips tasted fresh; and the habenero sauce that was asked for was really good. Have eaten here multiple times at this location and in Gatlinburg.... More

The salsa was watery and nothing but onions. The queso dip was just cheese whiz, and they only allow one basket of chips. The margarita tasted like watered down lemonade. Our server kept yawning while taking our order and managed to spill my daughter's drink all over us and the table. There is no way I will ever eat here... More

The worst mexican food we have ever had. The salsa was just chopped tomatoes, onions. The tacos had a weird taste . Cheese dip had a weird consistancy to it. The rice was under cooked and stuck together in clumps. The restaurant was really dirty and the menus were downright nasty.

The service was good and it has a nice atmosphere, but the food was just OK. I wouldn't bother with a return visit.

We got there and got our appetizers (guacamole and queso dip) in less than 5 minutes and we got our food ordered 10 minutes after that. I got the outrageous burrito and it was huge! The Mexican rice and refried beans and everything was wonderful. My only recommendation is that the salsa was a little too watery. Overall I would... More

We had a new waiter so he was a little slow but we were in no rush so no problem. They give you big portions. I'm picky about my mexican food but loved my fajitas. The drinks are great too! Kid friendly! Couples/Adults friendly. This was our 2nd visit and we'll be back!

Drove in from Louisiana and was looking for some Mexican food. Found this restaurant while visiting the Harley Shop, looked up the restaurant on trip advisor and made my final decision! Glad we did...Fantastic food, staff and Margaritas! Try the Chocolate burrito!!
