Chez Guevara is always busy, and a Knoxville institution. You walk in the door and the bar is abuzz with happy people enjoying themselves. As you walk to the seating area you notice that is full also with people 5-80 eating, drinking and enjoying themselves....More

We came in for dinner just prior to closing. The food was excellent. Very fresh. My only complaint was the fact that the service was a bit slow.

There is a spectrum of Mexican food quality in the Knoxville area. This ranges from my personal favorite Los Amigos in Maryville to my new low - Chez Guevara. I had been to this venue in a previous restaurant incarnation, La Paz, several years ago....More

This was one of the worst restaurant experiences I have ever had. First, the hostess sat and our 90 year old father in law directly in front of the music speakers. Then, when we ended up moving the tables because it was too loud, I...More
