I always visit Taco John's when I visit East Tennessee. My uncle used to take us here when I was growing up and my brother and I have continued the tradition with my own kids. We love it. Food is good and priced just right.

The bean buritto is a favorite, just add a few extras on and its a great meal. The drive thru is fast and the food is quality. Its always how you want it.

Quality of food varies. Drive thru not as good as dine in. I guess it depends on who is cooking. Needs more consistency.

Totally the only item we have ordered here for literally years. We Every time we're close by we try stop in for the super potato ole dish. They've downsized the platter over the last few years. But tastes just as good as always.

This chain is trying to expand to new markets but their food quality is subpar. The food is not the quality of their main competitor and is very greasy. Unless this chain improves the healthiness of its offerings, I will not be back.

My first time to Taco Johns and I will back for lunch. Although it was $3 it was a large Sausage Burrito. A little kick to it but I would order it again after working all night.
