Features Of The Gatlinburg Restaurant

  • This is a Gatlinburg Mexican restaurant that is going to use only the freshest ingredients on the market. This is going to make it easier for you to have a good meal when you sit down. However, at the same time, it will allow you to have food that is made with the quality ingredients.
  • The rooftop seating is something that is unique in Gatlinburg and is definitely a great way for you to have some of the amazing views you would want to have of the mountains. At the same time while enjoying the views you are getting from the mountains, but also will have some great Mexican style food you are going to be able to enjoy and eat, without having to worry about having some of the same issues you would have at some lower quality restaurants.
  • Now, you may have been to some of the places that have the mechanical bulls inside of them for entertainment. Well, you have this type of option when you are in this restaurant, but instead of it being a bull you will have the burro to ride. So this will definitely provide you with the entertainment you would want to have while you are waiting for a seat.

What I Liked About Here

The rooftop seating is definitely one of those main features that I love about here. This is a feature we have not really experienced before in Gatlinburg and it has definitely made it easier for us to enjoy the food even more, but one thing that we did notice is the rooftop location can make it very difficult to find protection from the rain if you are on the rooftop. Actually, I should say that it was not really hard to find protection from the rain, but the rain can easily ruin the views and this can detract from one of the main attractions you would have from the rooftop.

I really liked the fajitas from the eatery as well. While I do not really care for fajitas that much at the Mexican restaurant that is close to my house, I have to admit I really love them from here. I am not really sure what they do different with them, but they will be a good enough meal that you are going to have your mind blown with the food you are going to enjoy.

If you are a drinking person, then I would really recommend you try out the margaritas. While these can be a little bit on the pricey side because of how they are going to be well worth the cost because you are going to have a chance to enjoy some of the great drinks you never really thought about getting a chance to drink before.

Now, I will warn you this location can be very popular at times. This is going to lead to you possibly having to wait for a longer period of time than what you may want to at times. With this being said, you will like, if you are like me the electronic burro. This is a great ride that definitely provides quite a bit of entertainment while you are in line waiting your turn for a seat.

What I Do Not Like 

Now,  I have to say the one thing that I do not really like is the fact the rooftop does not have a lot of the protections you would want to have if a rainstorm does come through. Granted, the storms are not that strong in most cases and when they do come through it is usually fairly quick, but it is a pain because you have the umbrella to protect you and your food, but all it takes is a blowing rain and it will be easy for your entire meal to be ruined.

My Final Thoughts On Loco Burro Fresh Mex Cantina

Gatlinburg definitely has a lot of restaurants that are present in the town. However, what you will find is most of the restaurant are going to have a lot of cuisine specific menus. That is exactly what you will get here, but what we really love is the fact this location has the rooftop area to sit in and enjoy some great views. No matter what, if you are looking for a good Gatlinburg Mexican restaurant you will find this place to be decent and Loco Burro Fresh Mex Cantina will provide you with some great food to fill you up for the night.
