Worst dinner experience in Pigeon Forge ever. 20 plus minutes to get drinks. Then no silverware. Food wrong and very i tasty. Then the check was wrong. First manager was nice and got the food corrected. But the food was not good. Trying to get the check fixed and discuss all the issues with the main manager he simply snatched... More

The enchiladas & fajita salad were exceptional! The salsa is delicious! Service was impeccable. We can't think of a negative for this restaurant.

The fresh made salsa was excellent! i enjoyed chicken feista soup with fresh made (flour tortilla) chips, unlike those corn chips served with our appetizer chips. My friend also had this and enjoyed it. My husband had delicious fajitas. Our waiter was especially courteous and thoughtfully attentive checking in with us to be sure we were pleased and had all...

If you've been to any of your mexican restaurants in your town that serve the standard dishes, expect the exact same here. Nothing we had was exceptional that would take us back.

We eat at No Way's every time we go to Pigeon Forge. The margaritas are yummy, salsa is great and the fajitas are excellent. Jose's, you never disappoint! It's a great meal at a great price and our service is always excellent.

Would love to tell you how good the food was. Unfortunately we were seated and despite seeing 4 different servers walk by nobody ever came to our table. That explains why the place was near empty. We ended up giving up and going next door to Calhouns.

This restaurant is one of our favorite when visiting Pigeon Forge. We live about an hour from here and come several times a year. Our last visit was a Friday night and it was very busy. However we were seated quickly and service was great. The server had a couple of large table and it was just 2 of us... More

We ate at both Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg locations while on our trip. We highly recommend both locations. The food is great, the price is great, restaurants are clean and employee's are friendly. If you like this kind of food, try out one of these restaurant's.

The top shelf margarita was watered down. Cheese dip has their own blend of spices - ok for adults, not so much for kids. Salsa is good if you like chopped onions, and lots of them. Fajita tacos also heavy on onions, very light on peppers.
