“The name fits!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

No way will I ever go to this place again. AWFUL food, service, and atmosphere. Staff were rude, no substitutions are allowed. I am a real eaasy person to please and always call people hunny and sweetie. The names weren't verynice for this place.

“Great service and food on a busy night.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

My wife and I took a trip up to Pigeon Forge last February. In the cabin we stayed in, there was a book where guests left restaurant suggestions. No Way Jose's was on there. We decided to try it out, and we were glad we did. The wait was not very long. I'm glad we got there when we did. Many people came in behind us while we were waiting. We were sat pretty quickly. I ordered one of the specials that consisted of three different tacos with rice and beans. It was very good. My wife enjoyed her meal as well. Service and food were fast. We were in and out within 30 minutes. Will definitely be back.

Hi Chris, our fresh chips & salsa come with every meal. Since we weren't there, we can't be certain what the misunderstanding was. Our salsa is fresh, made from scratch daily, authentic Mexican salsa. That said, it's not what you see in many "American" Mexican restaurants and we understand that some folks may not love it. We invite you to check out our website link above to see how fresh our salsa is and how it is made. We hope that you do consider coming back to see us in the future. We would love to serve you again.

“Great food, great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012 via mobile

We came for dinner & had a great experience. Great food, very good service, prices are reasonable. Chips were hot & fresh! I had the outrageous burrito & it was huge. It wasn't just big, the stuff in it had great flavor. Would definitely return!
