I had the Pollo Lencho and it was excellent. My father also had a chicken dish which he said was great. The staff is always friendly.

Local friend recommended this restaurant. One of the better Mexican Restaurants I've ever been to.The menu was somewhat different than I'm used to in northeast Tennessee Mexican Restaurants. I recommend the TCA Tex meal. (initials may be different but similar, memory lapse)

They seemed to have only one meat, chicken, for Cinco de Mayo in most of the dishes on sale! The Margarita's are good if you modify with your own Tequila you like. The salsa was good, and they give you a lot of food, just wasn't as great as I had hoped! Was next dooe to my Motel, so I... More

We had tee time at Mountain Glen in Newland so we stopped in for lunch. We all ordered the chile relleno - chicken and beef. Salsa & chips plentiful. Diego provided excellent service.

Being experienced Tex-Mex diners, we were disappointed by this restaurant. Their food seems to be prepared for easterners who do not enjoy spicy food.

This is much like most Mexican restaurants. Decor, menu, food quality all good. Prices reasonable, portions large. Service is very good. Have eaten here several times and it is consistently good. Staff is courteous and attentive.

Every year I get at least one meal from this restaurant and every year I have the same response. Tasteless! This is the bland food, no spark, nothing to want you to take the next bite. I am assuming they have the same cook all this time so nothing changes. I will try again next year just to see if... More

Our party of six arrived to a packed restaurant on Sunday afternoon for lunch. We waited in line for seating. Hostess was very accommodating, and put two tables together for us. Servers were courteous but a bit slow, the place was crowded. Good food at reasonable price. This is a favorite of ours in the High Country.
