We ate here probably 3 times while on vacation. The food is absolutely delicious. My husband and I are both mexican cuisine fanatics, and after coming out of the aquarium we already see a line forming at the door. We decided to join in the wait and were definitely not let down. I miss this place already. It will definitely... More

My family was able to get right in and get a table quickly. The service was excellent, large portions, great food and right next to Aquarium and Greystone Lodge....with a babbling brook. My whole family agreed that this was the best Mexican food that we have ever had!!

We always eat at Jose's when we visit Gatlinburg. The food is good and the portions are large. The service is good as well.

Let me start off by saying I only went here because of these reviews, I now think there maybe some fake profiles here. We ordered fajitas for two, steak and chicken, and the kids nachos with taco meat. The fajitas came out fast, the chicken was full of gristle and had no taste, the "steak" was probably the cheapest cut... More

This restaurant is in a great location. After walking around for a while it was very convenient to stop in and grab a bite to eat. Prices were ok for the amount of food we got.

Stopped in the restaurant for a drink, thankfully I was walking because the parking lot was a total cluster...no ample parking for patrons. City parking in lot across the street that cost $10! I ordered a margarita at the bar. It was horrible, all triple sec. Couple next to me ordered food, it looked pretty good.

We had driven for 12 hrs and were tired and starving. While searching for our hotel, we saw No Wat Jose. We asked the person at the desk of our hotel about it. She highly reccomended it to us. It was very close to our hotel, so there was no problem walking over to it. The decor is not overdone... More

We had hopes of having a good Mexican dinner here during our vacation in July based on many good TripAdvisor reviews. Our party of 7 was not real pleased with our meal or experience. We had to wait for about 35 minutes (no biggie) but when we were brought to our table the floor was so greasy(?) it was like... More

Okay... So this place isn't 5/5 but the food was very delicious and it didn't take long at all to receive it. The hostess was very rude and quiet but overall the food was good :)
