Don't come here expecting Mexican food cause it's a BBQ place now. The BBQ is very good tho & it's located directly across from the Gatlinburg Convention Center!

This place wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. I've def had better mexican food. I didnt like the spicy rice. The queso cheese dip wasn't hot.

“SLOW”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

Was there last week and to this day i have had nothing to eat. We left after 45 minutes, and never saw a waiter, asked 3 times for service and still no one came. The wait staff seemed clueless as to what tables they had. 1 Guy did come by and say he would be back, but i guess he retired because he never came back! We left as did a couple sitting near us on the deck. If it was up to me I would start by firing the management staff, and starting totally over, we went there 2 years ago when they first opened and and had the same experience which we attributed to learning,,,, they had just opened, but in reality it is no better now!

“Lunchtime”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were seated promptly but took the wait staff a little bit to get to us and they were not that busy. Food was good and alot of it. After we finished eating we noticed we had different waiter and had to wait to pay check.
