We frequent No Way Jose as we live in the area. This last visit was not a good one. Firstly we sat in the side room which only had one server. The service was fair. We ordered fajitas to share. After a long wait they came out dry. The steak was uneatable. The Torres were refrigerator cold. Did not enjoy... More

Our group ate here and enjoyed our meal. The food and service was good but nothing to write home about. I would rate it as average or a little better.

We make it a point to try something new every time we are in the area. For this trip, it was No Way Jose's. And man was it DELISH!! My fajitas were amazing and the salsa... It is divine! Super cool place with a laid back vibe. We will be back!

We stopped here after a suggestion from a friend. Glad we did! The decor inside is cool. They bring chips and salsa when you arrive. The salsa is more like pico. Very tasty! I ordered the shrimp, carnitas, and fish tacos. Shrimp tacos were AWESOME!! Spicy with a little sweetness. Carnitas tacos were AWESOME! I was not impressed by the... More

When we are undecided where to go, No Way Jose's Cantina is our default. Let me clarify that, we "default" often to NWJ's because we like it a lot. The food is good, the service is good and the atmosphere is good. Try the Camerones la Diabla for a spicy shrimp dish. Or whatever you like, NWJ's will serve you... More

Popped in here for our evening meal while visiting Pigeon Forge. Really like Mexican food and wasn't disappointed with the food we were served. Really good value for money and food was out in no time at all. Clean plates all round.

We are there our last night in pigeon forge and we're very disappointed. We arrived and had a 15 minutes wait, which was fine. When we got to our table our waiter seemed very unsure of herself and honestly made us feel very uncomfortable. We order chips and salsa, the chips were average and the salsa was extremely watery and... More
