Great place for Mexican food. Service is always quick, and friendly. Multiple craft beer options, as well as the usual mixed drink options. SoKno will not disappoint.

This is a great addition to the south Knoxville community. Conveniently located near James White Pkwy and Bakers Creek biking area, it has both inside and outside dining, great food, and craft beers
