“Commercial, badly flavored food!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

They have missed the mark on why Americans Love Mexican food - simple delicious ingredients prepared by someone who likes the food. There was a odd metallic flavor (maybe coriander...) in nearly everything from the salsa to the beans to the fajitas... Not appetizing... Sad to say but don't waste your money...

“Nouveau Mexican at it's best”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

What a delightful place. The roof top dining area is the place to be. Contemporary island decor. Fresh Mex is delivered, as billed. The food was delicious. I had the lime chicken salad. The ingredients were fresh, the chicken was moist and flavorful. The lime vinaigrette was uniquely delicious. Hubby had the Cancun combo plate and the flavor in the enchiladas was outstanding. Loco Burro takes standard Mexican to a new level of flavor complexity. The Margaritas were OK but a bit sweet for our taste and a tad short on tequila. A great quality option in this tourist market.

“Loved the roof top bar and the food”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

We had lunch on the roof top and could enjoy looking out to the main drag. The food was very good and the salsa was excellent. It was different than what you get in most mexican restaurants. The service was very good as well.

“A must visit in Gatlinburg”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This is the 2nd time we ate at the Loco Burro and we loved it both times. The first time was just my wife and I. The margaritas were top notch. The steak/chicken/shrimp fajitas were incredible. You can really taste the fresh ingredients. The 2nd time was with the whole family at again it was flawless. Their salsa is great too! Yes. Eat here!
