La Esperanza

Looking for authentic Mexican food? Look no further than La Esperanza! This spot is great for tacos, but their mole poblano is also note-worthy! La Esperanza’s mole sauce comes from a family recipe.

Mexico Lindo

$1 tacos on Tuesdays. I repeat $1 TACOS ON TUESDAY!!!!!!!! Mexico Lindo is also a tamale spot. Have an order there and bring home a twelve-pack for later!

Chez Guevara

Located in a nook between Barnes & Noble and Paul’s Oasis in West Knoxville, Chez Guvara is a local favorite! The Mexican restaurant doesn’t have a sign, but inside there’s sugar skulls and tasty tacos. Order their margarita pitcher…if you dare!


El Tipico Resturant & Market

Delicious Mexican and Honduran food? Yes please!!! Their tacos are incredible, but also leave room for a round of their topped oysters! El Tipico also doubles as a food store. If you don’t feel like going out, just bring it home!

Habaneros is your stop for Mexican food in East Knox! Their shredded chicken is on point! Try it in a taco, quesadilla or piled on high on their nacho platter!
