Great Mexican Restaurant in an unexpected area!

Happen to stop by to have a drink one evening and met Ray, our waiter, and a local told us it was one of their favorite places to eat. We went back the next night and she was right, we had the fajitas for 2 and we had more than enough food and it was very very tasty. The home... read more

First place my husband and I ate on our trip to Gatlinburg. The food was great and our server was very attentive (Jose) we had a lot of food on our plates. The price was decent too. Enjoyed the water view of the booth we were at. Got to watch momma duck with her babies.

From the minute we walked in to No Way Jose's we knew we had chosen the right place. Our server was fun and knowledgeable about the menu & drinks. The food was very good as was the margaritas. The prices were also good for the area. We will definitely go back there to eat next time we are in Gatlinburg!

5-18-15 http://nowayjosescantina.com 865-430-5673 This is a great Mexican restaurant across the street from the aquarium which we also visited. Make sure your entire party is with you as they will not seat you if someone is missing. The food is tasty and very similar to On the Border. The salsa is not spicy and the chips are not hot which...

They a added what they called 'Sweet Masa' which turned out to be Sweet Tamale dough which was a interesting but good side. Of course they had the... More

We started with the nachos which was amazing. Then we had the chicken fajitas and the taco salad. You get a lot of food for the price they charge. We got 2 meals and a appetizer for $30. There service was great also. We have never been her before until now and we will be making a stop here every... More

Great Mexican food with the usual choices, but chicken and beef dishes were the best. Food was fresh, service was great If given the opportunity, eat outside on the porch.

I had the carnitas burrito. Everything was delicious, from the chips and salsa to the carnitas to the rice and beans and corn cake. The portions are very large. My whole family liked our food. The only negative point I have is that the ceiling above our table was decorated with pictures of half naked women. If they want it... More
