El Mezcal out in Farragut
I second El Mezcal in Farragut.
Señor Taco, always and forever
Senor Taco is much better now that the waiter who groped people and would threaten us to fight when we told him to stop is gone. Still feel nervous each time I go, though.
… since he’s been seen their drinking.
there, not their, goodness. :/
La Esperanza on Washington Pike is really good.
Cancun near Cedar Bluff.. Best Chimichangas ever! Killer drink specials too.
La Paz for sure! (aka Chez Guevara) located on Kingston Pike in the corner between Barnes & Noble and Toys ‘R Us.
The spinach queso is crazy delicious. Couple that with the red and green salsas…mmmmmmmm! Yes, please!
Pelancho’s is always a favorite of mine.
I like Tapatio’s (behind OCI on the Strip).
Pelancho’s is the best by far!!
Senor Taco! all the WAY! there is no better place and it serves up some authentic Mexican dishes! I mean the beef tongue (as gross as it may sound) is delicious and so is your standard chimichanga!
Los Amigos – Down Town Maryville
It’s been there for 20 years, good stuff!
…and yes I know the question was “in Knoxville” but Maryville is close enough in my book!
The best of Knoxville IS NOT Senor Taco! Roaches are readily available on any plate. This is based on our visit to the restaurant. A Roach crawled from our serving plate when the waiter was removing the plate from the table. As if it was a routine, the waiter exclaimed, “Ill get the manager”. The manager could only add, “we were inspected yesterday”. With that behind us, the Lunch Crew rated Casa Don Gallo and Abuelo’s as the Best Mexican Restaurants of Knoxville.
