It took a while for our waitress to start serving us, but once she started, it was nice service. Our food was really good. It was a bit pricey though. Most meals are $13+ unless you get just cheese and no meat. My mom, my...More

The service and food were excellent. Arturo was our waiter and provided excellent service. The heated fire tables were a nice touch to the atmosphere. The food was excellent. The beer tube was the best. I definitely recommend this place.

We were very excited to try this place on a recommendation. The food and drinks were delicious! The atmosphere and music on the rooftop were great. But we didn't have a great experience with the staff. The hostess was not friendly in the slightest. And...More

As a vegetarian in Gatlinburg I was excited to see that I had multiple choices here. I asked to substitute refried beans for black beans and the waiter Arturo said it would be his pleasure to do that for me. Very refreshing. Food came out...More

This place has good food with a good view of the people on the strip. The chips and queso are amazing. Don't eat too much before the food arrives. I had a brisket taco and some Spanish rice. Both were great. Others in my party...More

The food and drinks are delish and the patio area is perfect to eat and enjoy the view of beautiful Gatlinburg. We visit each time we are in town.

Loco Burro was just one of the Mexican places I tried in Gatlinburg. The food was the best part about it. It tasted fresh for one thing. Also in the early afternoon, I witnessed a man squeezing lemons & limes in a most interesting machine,...More

I doubt all their drinks are listed. You can Google & see but, I am sure they can make whatever drink you request

I've been trying to call the restaurant all day but no one has answered the phone. I'm trying to find out what your policy on reservations/call ahead seating is. I have a big group (15-18) that is interested in eating there this coming Saturday (4/28), but we do not want to have to wait for hours because it'll be such a large group. Can you help?
