Hector and Gloria Gomez left their beloved hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico, in pursuance of a dream. This dream brought them to Maryville, Tennessee, to open the very first Mexican restaurant in
Blount County, the Los Amigos Mexican Restaurant.
Since 1988, Los Amigos has stayed true to its roots--serving uniquely delicious and authentic Mexican dishes, made from the highest quality ingredients, at a price that keeps locals and newcomers alike coming back for more.
Los Amigos takes every step to make the service impeccable and the ambience joyful,
maintaining a family atmosphere that now welcomes the 3rd generation of food-lovers.
Los Amigos has received numerous recognitions for its long tradition of excellence.
More recently, The Maryville-Alcoa Daily Times has named the restaurant among the Best Mexican Restaurants in Blount County for 8 consecutive years.
In 2009, Knoxville’s CityView Magazine selected Los Amigos as the Best Mexican Restaurant of the Knoxville area. And just in September 2010, Knoxville’s WATE viewer poll rated Los Amigos as the Best Mexican restaurant in the entire East Tennessee region.
Today, Hector and Gloria continue to live their dream, proudly showcasing their culture with every delicious meal they serve.
Thank you, Blount County, for dreaming every step of the way with us.
