Pretty good Tex-Mex in fun atmosphere

No Way Jose's on the river in Gatlinburg is one of our go-to places when we visit Gatlinburg. Ask to sit in the section overlooking the river. Food is good & what you expect from a Tex Mex place in Tennessee.

Great food. Nice atmosphere. Sat outside with friends for drinks & a little snack. Well there is nothing little about this place! Food is delicious & the servings are well worth the money. Inexpensive for a lot of eats :)

We live in the New York area so the 3 times we were in Gatlinburg over the last 4 years we couldn't imagine trying a Mexican restaurant. How good could the Mexican food be in Tennessee?

We had an early dinner here last week after a long day hiking and were refreshed and rejuvenated by some very good food and very generous portion sizes. A definite plus in the Gatlinburg area! We didn't have to wait more than a minute or two for a table for 6 and loved everything we had!

The atmosphere was nice. Building looks feels outdated but the food is good. The price is reasonable. The employees/wait staff are friendly. I would eat here again.

Food is excellent. The steak nacho salad is very good. Wait staff go above and beyond the call of duty. Only down is the ice tea is horrible.

Food was average and service was quick. One of the few restaurants that is open at lunch time. Nothing to write home about---but kids were happy.
