Gatlinburg, the South's Redneck Vegas, is not well-known as an oasis of gourmet cuisine. It was therefore with great feelings of "meh" that I entered Loco Burro on the main drag. I was not disappointed in my expectation of meh-ness. From the grilled chicken fajitas to the drinks, everything was indeed standard, not-particularly-memorable Mexican. It was not bad; it was just slightly overpriced Mexican food, with no real distinguishing qualities. The only aspect of the meal that struck as me highly memorable were the sizes of the portions. You know you've mastered the art of serving your patrons too much food when you offer an item (the Whole 5-Lb. Chihuahua) which states "Eat this burrito by yourself within 30 minutes and receive your burrito free and win a t-shirt of your choice!" If I have to prove myself by not vomiting, it's probably too much food. Sad side note: The mechanical bull was broken. But then again, mechanical bull-riding after a giant meal of meat, cheese, and tortilla is probably not ideal anyway.

I live in the area and I have ate at No Way Jose in Gatlinburg many many times. I take all my friends and realtives there when they come to town and we ALWAYS HAVE SO MUCH FUN! Food is always fire hot and huge portions. They have wonderful TOP SHELF Margaritas and many other dinks can be made it their full bar. I love the decor and atmosphere here. I always feel lucky to be able to sit on the side of the resturaunt along the river. My servers are ALWAYS very nice and I always joke around with them. Fun and and uplifting experience. More than just a meal for me. Hope eveyone gets to try it. It is one of my favorite places to eat around here. Especially for Mexican cuisine and experience. Keep it up guys! Thanks for all the good meals and fun! PS...the deck patio isalways nice in the evening, sometimes bands are playing and you can have appetizers and drinks along side the river...SWEET!
Our group of four are supper there and had a great meal. The salsa was more of a liquid pica da gallo, not real not but very fresh. We had a sampler appetizer and was very pleased as we were with the meal. I was skeptical after reading the reviews but glad to say we had a very good meal at reasonable price. Attentive server was seated overlooking the river. Definitely recommend.
