I guess it was our expectations that did us in. We'd heard good things about the place and wanted to give it a go. We went early to avoid the rush and our table was right next to a loud speaker in a corner. VERY...More

As others have said in their reviews, this is a place for people in-the-know. It's not easy to find Chez Guevara. It's an unmarked storefront in an ordinary strip mall outside of Knoxville. However, this restaurant has been in this same spot for decades, and...More
