This is the best choice in Knoxville for a local non-chain Tex-Mex restaurant. One of those restaurants that has been a local favorite for decades -- and really hasn't changed much. Wish they had draft beer, but no big deal.

Wasn't expecting a lot out of this strip mall Mexican place. Wow was I surprised. Great atmosphere. Good food. Very nice bartender who made a killer margarita!

This is the only Mexican restaurant that I've found in Knoxville that doesnt serve prepackaged frozen food. The great margaritas and unique decor close the deal.

I love Mexican food and have been on a search for my favorite in Knoxville. This one gets an A for atmosphere but it went down hill from there.

While waiting for our table we decided to have some Margaritas at the bar. We order 2 and the bartender tells us it would be a better deal to get the crafe so we do. Little did we realize it was $16 and they were not that good.

Our meals was good but not great. I had the Al Zappos Choice combo and my date had the Pollo Del Mar. We both agreed that the food was rather bland.

Don't get me wrong I would go back it is different than most Mexican places in town but by far not the best I have had. So the search continues.

Everything is good & served hot from the kitchen. Chips and salsa are great but spring for the spinach queso dip. Tostada ultimata is my favorite. You could also go cheap & just order a taco & an enchilada.
