Best mexican in the Smokies!

We love this place, we always have to eat here when making our way into Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge. The prices are great, and the food is even better. There salsa is made fresh everyday and it is the best!

After trying to get in to Loco Burro where service was poor and there was a line for open tables, we decided to try No Way Jose instead. We were immediately greeted and seated with a view of the downtown area. Our waiter, LeBron, made the lunch so enjoyable and fun! Our lunch, two burritos and the fajitas for two,... More

I recently ate lunch with my family at this location and the food was delicious. The waiter was very prompt and friendly and the restaurant atmosphere and decor are true to authentic Mexican cuisine. We had the mixed Fajitas for two which were nicely done with huge shrimps, chicken and steak strips.

We decided to eat here before leaving town and wished we had tried it earlier in our vacation. It was so different from other Mexican restaurants yet still tasted authentic. The atmosphere was fun and family friendly. I bet it would be a great place to have dinner and drinks as well.

If you're a fan of Mexican food this restaurant is a must! The staff is wonderful and the quality of food is consistent. I have visited this place many times over the past several years and it has always been great! Try to get a window seat with a view of the stream!

The entire family enjoyed this meal. It's a little different from the standard Mexican but REALLY good! Kids loved it as well. Great place to eat if you get a chance.

The worst experience ever. First the floor was very slippery and dirty. It took the server like 20 min to bring chips and drinks to the table! and the managers are so rude!!!

Ok...so I know there are some negative comments on here about No Way Jose's...which I'm totally confused about. This is one of the restaurants I crave every single day that I'm not on vacation in Gatlinburg. And considering that we only vacation in Gatlinburg an average of 7 days out of the year...that's a lot of days to be craving... More

I love mexican food, and that's exactly what you are presented with. There wasn't anything absolutely to die for here, but it was as good as any I've had before! The location is very convenient, and the prices are great for the food you get. I will say the queso dip is great!!!
