What a really, relaxing place. It is in downtown Gatlinburg, so there was a little bit of a wait, but there paging system is great! Food was really good! The wait staff was friendly and professional. One little issue is options of seafood as a...replacement on their salads. My wife is a pescatarian and wanted shrimp rather than chicken on a salad. It was explained that they cannot do something like that. We could of ordered shrimp on the side, but it would have been only 5 small shrimp. The waiter suggested the shrimp fajitas which was a good replacement and the shrimp was plentiful and large. Just odd that we couldn’t get the substitution we wanted. I still gave it a five for the food and the wait service - we don’t blame him for the lack of substitutions.More

The food was awesome. Really good Mexican food. The staff was amazing and worked so well together. We ordered, got our food, and we were done in about an hour. Not rushing or anything. Was a great night out with the family and I would...totally go back.More

Stopped in for dinner, long wait so sat in the bar which was first come first serve so sat down right away. Waiter was great. The food came quickly and as usual was delicious. The bar was open air so was nice weather as well.

We've been to No Way Jose's in the past, but we were really disappointed this time. The food was flavorless, the staff was rude, and we got out of there as quickly as possible. I'm really disappointed in the bland chips, watery salsa, and the...staff's inability to be anything near pleasant. We will not be returning, unfortunately. You should think twice before getting food here.More

Typical Mexican food. Tacos, enchiladas, burritos etc. Quickly seated and attended to. Food was good but nothing special. Food was tastey and service was fast. Sat on outside patio and watched the little creek run by.

We were quickly seated considering we are a party of 8. 4 margaritas but they were out of trioke sec. Odd. Then we were told they were out of guacamole. Not off to a good start. But they made up for it I. Quality and...taste. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We would come back even though it was a rocky start. Chicken fajitas, chicken enchiladas were a big hit corn mash was rather tasty tooMore

We ordered out, one night, and hubby walked from the nearby Greystone, and picked up our order. We got taco salad, and a couple of burritos. Everything was great. We also got a few things that we didn't order, which we discovered, when we got...back to the room, so I would definitely check your " to go" orders, before you leave the restaurant.More

Everything we we ordered had no flavor. This place was gross from the greasy chips and watery salsa to the drinks. I seriously would have rather had taco bell.

Our service was very fast and the food was good too! I really liked the enchiladas and rice and beans. The chips and salsa with queso was also really good. The seating on the River was so cool! I would definitely go back.
