A small place but the food is very good. Within walking distance of several hotels in Oak Ridge. Servers and service are good.

We were in Oak Ridge to check out the new Manhattan Project National Historical Park, got hungry and saw the sign. From the street the restaurant didn't look like much so we took a chance and went inside. Once inside we were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted warmly, quickly seated, then given some tasty salsa and warm chips to snack... More

Typical Mexican joint, nothing here that convinced me to keep choosing this place over El Cantarito's. The prices are higher, food is very similar, kitchen is slower, portions seem a little smaller. It's simply not my favorite choice when searching for the right mexican meal, they have strong competition in this town.

Service was great but the food was average. Nothing that would lead me there again. Salsa was decent.

Warned by a friend but didn't listen - I ordered the hacienda special (see photo). It was HUGE. Several assorted smaller countries could've been fed with this portion :) Good food, excellent margarita by the pitcher, fast, efficient service.

I moved here from Houston where I could get good Mexican food just about everywhere. I have a meal I use as a barometer as to whether or not it is a good restaurant, enchiladas verdes con carne molida. I visited at off-peak, 4pm on a Thursday and there were a few people there. I had my beer delivered, and... More

My family eats lots of Mexican food. We have eaten at nearly *all* the places in Knoxville & surrounding areas. I have been here 4-5 times and never disappointed. Friendly staff and always a good meal.

The food was good and the service was excellent. The location was perfect since it was close to hotels, shopping and the museum.
