Its a cool place really. It is open, so we watched these little birds trying to steal crumbs of food off the floor, which was cute. Magaritas are HUGE. Nacho plate is HUGE. Sampler plate is MASSIVE. Good stuff for sure. Cute atmosphere and location. Great for people watching. Prices were fair.

This Mexican restaurant was next to our hotel so we decided to check it out and were pleasantly surprised. The food was very good and the bartender Lady was real friendly. The only negative the restaurant claims to be open during the week till 10:00 pm but in reality they close their doors at 9:30 pm and no chance of... More

We try to make it to Jose's every time we are in Gatlinburg (several times a year) as it is one of the consistently good places to eat, day in and day out. (Gatlinburg restaurants tend to be on some days and really nasty the next...NOT so with Jose's). Try to eat in the 'over 21' area. If the weather... More

My husband and I ate here on Thanksgiving lunch while we were on vacation. My meal was basically inedible and my strawberry margarita was overpriced and almost solely composed of cheap sweet and sour mix. Our waiter was extremely inattentive (even though the restaurant was almost empty) and spent his time leaning on the bar doing something on his cell... More

We were excited that this place going to be open. Also we love Mexican food so we were excited that it was walking distance from our room. It was very busy but got a table right away. Chip and salsa was alright. The salsa was not up to par. It was basically tomatoes and onions in some juice. Fresh but... More

Following a recommendation we decided to try No Way Jose's. Our family loves Mexican food but honestly this was just average. Nothing more. We waited 50 minutes drinking pre-made margaritas. Ehh. If you have to wait, it's not worth it.

Great chips and salsa for starters. Followed by good service and food. All together a real good experience centrally located among several bigger attractions.
