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.

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!
