El Rey has really great food, but they have posted No Guns Allowed, so I do not eat there anymore. I have a carry permit, I am not a bad guy, and do carry for protection, especially since I am a female. Why they want to have a weapon free zone is beyond me. A No Guns Allowed sign has never stopped the bad guy yet. El Rey's made their choice to be gun free. I had to make my choice to give up their great food. Maybe one day they will change their way of thinking and remove the sign.

If you live in North Knoxville;you must come eat at El Rey in the Powell shopping center.I had to stop eating drive through and hamburger joints because my diabetes and lack of mobility.The Chief has created a special veggie meal that is great.If you like Shrimp,Portabella mushrooms,and zucchini, and Yellow squash w/ grilled onions and a few green peppers it is awesome.I go there often and wish you can experience my little secret paradise to relax and really feel welcome and wanted.

The best Pablano rellano! Flan is excellent. Chimichanga wonderful. Traveled and stopped at many Mexican restaurants, but this one supersedes the rest. Staff is friendly and efficient. Clean also!
