Wonderful as usual

Our second time going to No Way's. Ate the same thing, shredded beef quesadilla's and a margarita. The quesadilla's are amazing. Loved them so much I ordered them a 2nd time. Wanted to try the taco salad or fajita salad, but that will have to wait for a 2nd visit. I don't like the salsa. Too thin... read more

Everything was wonderful! Service was polite and FAST! Our margaritas were huge and delicious. The food portions were large and extremely yummy. You definitely get a lot of bang for your buck. The chicken melted in your mouth and the queso was perfect for the chips. The only complaint we have is that we weren't crazy about the salsa, it... More

From all the walking its nice to rest your feet with a cool beverage and some munchies. Relaxing atmosphere, but food not top notch but okay.

No Way Jose's is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Tennessee. This restaurant is in the middle of Gatlinburg by Ripley's aquarium. Salsa and chips start you off right and everyone enjoyed enchiladas and fajitas. Very good - and I've lived most of my life in Texas so I know great Tex-Mex.

This restaurant has some of the best Mexican food I think I've ever ate. It's definitely freshly made. The restaurant was clean and the staff was friendly. The food is reasonably priced. This place is in a great location also.. It's right next to the Ripley's Aquarium.
