As we checked into our hotel, we discovered that the Dolly parade (or something like that) was headed our direction. We decided that it would be a good time to head into Gatlinburg and do some shopping. I’m not a parade person. 😉
We stopped at Mel’s Diner for lunch so we knew it was going to be a minute until we were hungry for dinner. Thankfully, I was ready to shop! As we walked, the husband and I saw that Loco Burro had rooftop seating – I love guacamole and we needed to kill some time…plus, people watching in Gatlinburg is top-notch.
Because of the parade, it wasn’t busy at all – score! Our server and service was awesome – fast, friendly, we chatted with her for a bit. 🙂
Since we weren’t crazy hungry, we just (Okay, just me!) had some drinks to start with…
Yum – super sweet but still yum!
Then, to kill some more time…
I wish I could remember what it was – I’m not particular when it comes to the margaritas!
We discovered that we were never going to be hungry enough for a meal – which is sad because all of the food around us looked amazing! The husband got the 6-Layer Dip appetizer…it was like a meal. Crazy huge.
Okay – this next picture, sums up how perfect this whole experience was.
Seriously. A Guacamole cart/station when you order table side guacamole. My whole trip was complete at that point.
Mmm…guac. It needed a bit more lime and salt (to be fair, she asked me if I’d like to add anything extra but I felt guilty for being picky…) but, it’s guac.
The husband and I really enjoyed our experience here – I know it’s not southern fare but if you’re in Gatlinburg and looking for a place for some drinks and for a great atmosphere…this is it. The bonus? Mechanical burro riding, people. Enough said.
