“Great place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

This place is located right above Johnny Rocket's on the main strip. It was soo good. We went to Mexico this past year and this food was as close to authentic as I have had before. Our waiter was very friendly, and kept the drinks coming. The atmosphere is very cool, you could have a night out with family or with friends and be satisfied. Try the chicken chimichanga, it is awesome. The tshirts are cheap and you can get a bullride for 5 bucks. Loved it!

“Visit the rooftop lounge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

Another great place to visit on a trip to the Smokey Mountains. We didn't eat there, but had several cocktails. The bartender of the roof was named "Ben" and did a great job keeping us informed of fun to be had in Gatlinburg.

“Gross Drinks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

I went with a party of 6 to enjoy some drinks on their rooftop deck. The view and atomosphere was nice and we were all able to sit on a couch around the fire. It took forever for a waitress to come by but she did apologize saying she was swamped since she was the only one around for the entire deck area. We went to the bar to order instead and even that took forever to get drinks, even though our group was the only one waiting. I just had a bottle of beer, which is impossible to mess up. The others in my group ordered mixed drinks which they all made me taste test. The margaritas were terrible. The regular margarita was so sour that you couldn't even drink it. And the strawberry just tasted like cheap strawberry syrup. The mojito was gross too. The only decent drink was the daiquiri. Overall, I would definitely not go back.

“Expensive but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

The prices were a bit high and portions were small but the service was stellar and the food arrived quickly. The non-traditional salsa was as another reviewer put it, good but not sure everyone would enjoy it. We enjoyed our meal though!

“Expensive but good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

My husband and I received fairly quick and friendly service and we both enjoyed our entrees.We liked the non-traditional salsa but some people may not. I didn't care for the atmosphere very much. More like a bar than a place to have a nice dinner.
