I realized as we were walking in that I'd left my ID in the car, and wanted a margarita. My husband offered to run back to the car to grab for me while I got a table. They wouldn't let me sit until he got back since, "all members of party must be present to be seated." That was kinda... More

Good Food, plenty of it. Hostess was gracious. No long wait time and we were filled to overflowing with all the food. Nice surprise.

As we walked through Gatlinburg my wife said, "I'd like a place where we could have some drinks and snacks while sitting outside with a nice view." We came around the bend and there was No Way Jose's. We pulled up a chair at an outside table and ordered a couple of margaritas and the sampler platter while watching the... More

Family and friends out for dinner on fall break. 13 of us had dinner and drinks after a day of hiking. We tried a variety of dishes and a few drinks. Outstanding. Definitely a place to go back too.

What a great way to end a great day in Gatlinburg! There was a waiting list for tables when we got to No Way Jose's this evening, but we opted to sit and order at the bar. Even though the bartender, Ashley, was busy keeping up with drink orders for the entire restaurant, she provided warm, friendly and expert service... More

I never visit Gatlinburg without eating at No Way Jose's. The service is fast and the food is always very good and yet the prices are very reasonable.

There seems to be a common factor with food in gatlinburg. No flavor! Nothing was terrible just needed more seasoning. We had the carnitas tacos and the camarones tacos. Our server was terrible, never refilled our chips and salsa and I was half way through our meal when my beer finally arrived. Be prepared for mediocre food in this town!

Mexican sounded good for supper, and read several good reviews. I was not impressed, however. It was very average with some of it being quite dry and not full of flavor. My husband enjoyed his ultimate tacos. But the chicken tamales and enchiladas we're pretty dry. Fresh salsa (pico) which was good but it didn't have cilantro or many jalapenos... More

It's not easy to find good Mexican food in the Smokeys, especially being from Texas but this place has it all. Every time we've been we are not disappointed. It can get loud and busy but the food is great and fresh. Try the spinach enchiladas. They're amazing.

Thank Adam S
