Swanky's is a local Mexican chain and has the feel of an slightly upscale casual dining experience, yet moderately priced. They offer several of their own version of loaded tacos and also allow customers to customize their own set of three tacos with the choice of meat and a boatload of toppings.

Absolutely love this place. Friendly staff, casual atmosphere, great drinks and food. I love love love the BBQ nachos and the strawberry margaritas. The chimis and tacos are also great. You really can't go wrong. Two for one margaritas on Tuesday.

Cruising for a quick lunch, couldn't pass on a place called Swankys. Great fish tacos, soup and guac. Clean, efficient - will come again.

I'm not interested in eating at this place anytime soon. The service was good and the employees were very friendly.

I was in Memphis for a soccer tournament and got a bit of a late start for dinner. My family and another family had hoped to hit one of the popular BBQ spots that Memphis is known for. After calling several restaurants on a busy Saturday night, they all had at least a 45 minute to 1 hour or more... More

I was in Memphis for business and a co-worker suggested we visit Swanky's for a quick lunch. It was a nice atmosphere and service was great for this type of restaurant. I had the burrito bowl for lunch and it was very good. I'm sure I will eat here again in the future when I am back in town.

I ordered steak fajita tacos and the beef was tender and delicious. My dinner companions enjoyed theirs as well... but we didn't like their rice or corn side dishes.

Had dinner here with a group of friends. Casual atmosphere with table service. The tacos were ok, but nothing special. Have not been back to try again.
