The quesadillas and the burritos are amazing. The best I have ever had. The portions are huge. There were 6 of us and none of us could finish. The 2 college students with us were thrilled with our leftovers. Not your typical Mexican restaurant.

The tequila selection was the most extensive I have ever seen anywhere, They claim to have the largest in the South and I have no reason to doubt their claim. The friendly service and advice helped immensely in our selections, The chips and salsa we...had was a great addition to the experience. the prices are reasonable for premium and ordinary selections.More

We stopped in here for lunch and we very pleased. You must start with a margarita, great! I liked that you can order the tacos individually. I wasn't all that hungry so was able to order just one taco. Everyone in our group ordered something...different and commented that everything was wonderful. Prices are very reasonable too.More

I’ve been several times for lunch. Tacos are good, nothing overly great about them. Chips and Salsa is very good.

They had a good selection of tacos and tequila. Didn’t try the drinks but we did enjoy the tacos. The burritos are really big. Our waitress recommend the Guacmole taco which is a deep fried slice of avocado and and it was very tasty. The...Brussels sprouts and street corn were good. They had homemade chips with the guacamole which was really good tooMore

Nice bar with extensive collection of Tequilas and Mezcals. Excellent food with good service. The guacamole is excellent. Fun and yummy selection of tacos. Best quesadillas in town. Secret menu item is the burrito bowl. Love this place! Always a good time.

By far, the best margarita in Knoxville! The tacos, salads and quesadillas are also amazing! Chivo takes Mexican to whole different level. We eat here atleast once a week.
