The waitress had a great personality and a genuine interest in her job - a real people person. She was a gringo but knew her menu. We were undecided about what we wanted for dinner and didn't fully understand the menu items. She picked up on our dilemma and brought it all together for us along with a recommendation that...

Spent one night in Knoxville and chose to eat here. It was delicious! We are from AZ so we can be picky about Mexican food. The restaurant was busy but we had quick and friendly service. The meals were hot and truly very good. We would recommend and would eat there again.
