We come here every time while visiting the mountains on vacation. It's a must. I absolutely love their food. The cheese enchilada, chicken tamale, and cheese tostada is delicious. Very fresh. Everything we have tried on their menu has been awesome. My only suggestion is don't make customers share a salsa bowl.

Delicious Mexican food. There is one of these in Pigeon Forge and also in Gatlinburg. They are both good. Good service last time I went. Little wait, but it can get busy at times. Good prices. Fun atmosphere.

We eat here regularly (family of 4 with two small kids). We generally share the fajitas for one as it is a lot of food and get a few Chiles Rellanos. We always receive great service. Their salsa is fantastic. I definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone.

We ate at this restraint the day the smoky mountains was on fire. We found it to be clean and the food good. The price seemed fair. The restrooms was large and wheelchair accessible although we had to walk around almost the whole building to get in with the wheelchair because of the curb.

Great chips and home made salsa. Part of their menu is like ordering off of a food truck and the shrimp tacos from that menu are excellent. Everything you get here is a large portion size. You won't leave hungry.

My wife and I are never disappointed when we stop here. It's a must for us when we visit Gatlinburg. Plenty of food and great service. The specialty drinks are awesome too.

This was our first time to eat here although we are in Gatlinburg often. We loved the Salsa! It tasted homemade. The loaded cheese dip was also excellent. We had fajitas for 2 and tea. The bill was only 37.00 and the service was great. We will definitely be back. Next time trying the Mexican pizza it looked amazing.

I'll start with the bright points- we showed up with a party of 11 and although they told us it would be up to 90 minutes, we were seated within about 20. The carne asada was good. One of the margaritas was good. BUT... the rest was very disappointing. Music was blaring, service was grumpy, the other margarita ($7!!) was... More

We have eaten here several times and again this week. It was food very good with good service. I thought the tamales are little dry and lack flavor, but everything else was good.
