    Best hole in the wall Mexican restaurant you can find in maryville, outdoor dining available and a buffet 11-2pm Sat And Sun

  • *****

    We went to try the buffet on Saturday evening and it was the best mexican food I have ever seen on a buffet. I am really looking forward to going back and trying the menu. I sampled a lot of their dishes on the buffet tamales, enchiladas, fajita chicken, cheese dip . The staff is very friendly.

    Apologies for the late update.

    Menu is much better than the buffet.

    I got the carnitas. It was delicious even the next day COLD from the fridge. Keep in mind this update is several months overdue so that should give an idea of how much I liked it.

    So my final thoughts, the restaurant is good but keep the buffet for the kids or selective eaters. Order off menu otherwise.

    4.75 final star

    A+! We love the food here! The man who is always working when we order (take out on dinner shift) is very nice also! They even have fries for my super picky son who has autism. We have eaten here the last two Mondays and will definitely be returning ?

    Best food and Service in this city. My husband and I go every Friday possible, and they make us feel like Family.

    If the employees smiled and made more effort to be friendly, this place would be a 10. We had the Sunday buffet. Delicious & a real bargain. Great decor.

  • *****

    Good buffet. When ordering off the menu, big serving sizes (enough to take home)

  • *****

    As one of very few restaurants in Tennessee to offer a Mexican buffet, it deserves props just for existing. They also offer regular menu entrees, which I've heard are very good. I haven't had their menu entrees, but their buffet is great if you arrive during peak hours. One star deducted because the buffet doesn't seem to be as great if you arrive at a slow time of the day. During slow times, they seem not to refresh the food at the buffet nearly enough, leaving some items depleted and others not-so-fresh.

    They have a freaking buffet of Mexican food! What more needs to be said? Yum!

    Lunch was Delicious! The food was fresh. If something wasn’t on the bar all I had to do was ask and they brought it out. Mr. Hector Williams went next door bought Bananas, and made us fresh Banana Chimichangas. Thank you so much for running such a great restaurant! You sir are such a wonderful man! We will return soon.

    This is the best Mexican restaurant I have been to in many years. Great food, good service. Buffet every weekday... awesome!!!

  • *****

    Mexican buffet with a good selection and excellent food. The only negative I have about this place is that sometimes the buffet doesn't get restocked fast enough.

  • *****

    Good food at good prices friendly staff

  • *****

    Great people and food. My kids are always a lot to deal with and the people there were so good with us as a family. Will be back soon!!!

  • *****

    Food was good but we were there for lunch late so quality was not as good.
    Will try again.
    This was the buffet meal I experienced.

    Great lunch buffet .. very attentive staff great place

  • *****

    It's pretty good .. just need to stock fresh food more frequently

  • *****

    My fiance and I stopped in probably about 12:30-1pm on Sunday. First thing we noticed aside from the host was the little buffet. Curious, we decided to try it.

    It's not bad. Very basic items chicken, beef, bean, tamale, taco shells on one bar. Sides along with a few other items on another. Finally toppings on another. This is 8.99 a person so keep that in mind along with the time we went.

    The pans weren't full, which considering they had enchiladas and such I understood. But I think the heat under the pans may have been a touch high or maybe sitting a bit too long because they wanted to stick.

    The bars themselves were clean, our server friendly. This place is located between Food City and Tobacco World. I'll update and give my final star review once we try the actual menu.

    For now: 4 out of 5

  • *****

    We absolutely love going there. It's our go-to Mexican restaurant with fast & friendly service and very well priced for the amount of food that you get. Highly recommend the Margaritas Nachos!

  • *****

    Like that it's a buffet. Prices reasonable. (3.99 for young kids, 5.99 middle aged kids, 8.99 for adults.) Like most buffets, some food fresher than others. Good variety. Service was good.

  • *****

    Good stuff. Nice place to take my son when we spend time together

  • *****

    Great food and service. Very clean and if I could give more than 5 stars I would!!!

  • *****

    First time there, chips and salsa was really good. Went late so not crowded, ordered off the menu but will try the buffet if we get there earlier. Waiter was pleasant didn't really interrupt us during our meal. Beer was cold and food was piping hot out of the kitchen. The cheese sauce is extremely good. Looking forward to our next visit.

  • *****

    $8.99 Lunch Buffet can't be beat. Lots of choices.

  • *****

    Margaritas is the best mexican food and best pitcher of margaritas ever!!

  • *****

    We eat here several times a week and the food and service are always good. Love this place.

    Service was great. The waiter we had was and is always great. He recognizes regular customers and knows some of the appetizers we like. I will eat there again.

    Great good. Nice people

    Great Mexican Destination Margarita's location in Maryville has been a favorite for several years now. Great, authentic food, friendly service, and of course, good margaritas. Most servers speak good english, and those that don't make up for it in effort.

    Margarita's recently opened a new location on Kingston Pike in Knoxville, and went all-out with renovations and decor. The food is good, though less consistently so than the Maryville location, and they have had a few other hiccups openening the new restaurant. Overall, though, the new location is getting better, and they really shine with the huge lunch buffet. This is a fun destination, friendly service, and plenty of authentic Mexican food with every order.

    MARGARITAS IN KNOXILLE LOCATION I frequent Margarita's on Kingston Pike. The service is great ( stick with the hispanic servers... some of the Amerians are less attentive). They have excellent food, drinks, and LOVE the salsa. They will customize any dish (or make your fav. if not on the menu ie Civeche). It is my fav. Mexican in town.

    I will be going there 4/23/2016 today to rate this resturant hopefully i hope its better than the reviews are showing but for now i will leave it 4 stars

  • *****

    Yum! I went here for dinner with my family and we ordered the chicken fajitas and chicken nachos. As an appetizer we had the queso dip. The portions are huge so you really get a lot for your money. The restaurant is clean and the service is prompt and friendly. The food was delicious and we got to try some sopapillas at the end - so good. I will come back the next time I'm in Maryville.

  • *****

    Tried the Pineapple fajitas this evening! Omg! Delicious! Wonderful plate full of food and they give you more then 3 tortillas. That is bonus points in my book!

  • *****

    There are a lot of Mexican restaurants in this city, but this one is by far our favorite. The food is delicious and their salsa is amazing. Even more importantly, the staff there feel like family. I call in to go and often they know exactly what I want when I tell them my name. In response to the review about it being filthy, always check their health scores. I've been eating there for several years and it's not fell below 98. Love this place!

  • *****

    How anyone can receive bad service from here, I'll never understand. We've been treated like family since the first time we ever stepped foot in here. Food is wonderful and the best queso EVER! The price is very affordable as well. You must try the buffet during lunch.

    Great food, Great people, Great place! I feel like family here.
