“Nothing special”
Reviewed September 2, 2014

We stopped here on a Saturday night. They have rooftop seating and thought we would give it a try. Of course the wait for the rooftop seating was at least an hour so we decided to just eat inside. More tex/mex than authentic Mexican. We ordered a pitcher of margaritas and after about 30 minutes the waitress told us she was trying to find a pitcher. After about 45 minutes and no drinks we asked her to just bring us glasses. Apparently there were out of pitchers so I'm not totally sure where she was going to find one. The margaritas and atmosphere was great but the food was pretty average.

“Best American Style Mexican I've Ever Eat”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

Love this place. Price was comparable to other Mexican restaurant's and the food was excellent. They were giving free deserts with a "like" to their FB page. Desert was excellent, our Server was awesome, but not much traffic and/or announcements on their FB page.

“Great chimichangas”
Reviewed September 1, 2014 via mobile

We were surprised after seeing a long line at the host stand that loco burro could get tables for our group of 10 on a busy holiday weekend night in just 15 minutes. But they did! Service was not great, as several times we were pretty sure our server forgot about us, but the food made up for it. Winning chicken chimichangas, and apparently the brisket chimichanga was a close second. Kids ordering cheese enchiladas and quesadillas were also very pleased. The bucking burro in the bar area is mildly entertaining. We would return!

“Summer nights”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

The most terrific view of Gatlinburg, sitting at the roof top bar. This was the middle afternoon, so we stopped for a cold beer. We have ate on the balcony before, and the food was very good. Sitting on the balcony at night watching people was so much fun. You gotta try it.

“Best fish tacos! ”
Reviewed August 31, 2014 via mobile

BEST FISH TACOS I'VE EVER EATEN!!!!!!!
The tacos are so authentic and tasty and fresh. The salsa is on point and the beer and drinks are great. The bar tender was a bit show off-ish when we went. He kept trying to do that coyote ugly thing where he throws the glasses in the air and catches them. ..... except this guy broke more glasses than he filled. Entertaining, to say the least.
