If you are lucky enough to get a bar table, you will have great service and a great time. If not and you have to get a table in the back it's a whole different experience, Some of the waiters are terrible. Been going here...More

This is where we go for Margaritas and Tex-Mex (I call it Cali-Mex) This place is always full and 95% are regulars. My favorite is the Chimichanga called Zapnins..

This is an old established place in Knoxville. The decor hasn't been updated in 30 years. The food is good but not great. The chicken in my enchiladas was overlooked and dry. The rice and beans were OK but I have had better. Service was...More
