Flavors on point! I was especially impressed with the Tia tacos. The rich, toasty flavor of the crisp griddled cheese surrounding the thick slices of avocado stole the show. But all the other elements-- black bean puree, crumbled cotija, cilantro microgreens, and even the tortillas-- worked together to create something truly delightful. And somehow it's vegetarian?? This is exactly what Knoxville's taco scene needs more of 👏 I also enjoyed both the carne and pollo asada tacos, which are more traditionally styled. The quesadilla, with more of that glorious griddled cheese on the outside, was riiich. The sauces worked well with everything. Can't wait to come back to try the burrito or Saturday night carnitas!

The quesadilla is amazing!!! Get the green sauce. Literally the tastiest food in Knoxville. I went in once and David was practicing out a new recipe and gave me and my friends all samples while our food was cooking. I love the vibe and will be back 💚

Awesome street-style Mexican food! The chef/owner is a UT grad and great chef. Tacos, quesadillas, and tias with homemade sauces. If you looking for Mexican food, late night bites, or a quick option, you need to check out Fuego — you won't be disappointed.

About Us

I started Fuego in September of 2020 with one goal in mind. Bring a unique authentic Mexican street style taste to Knoxville. It all started in 2013, during my sophomore year at The University of Tennessee, I began a food truck in my hometown of Cary, NC. After sometime on the truck I returned to school, with a fire still burning I refined my recipes through undergrad and into the fresh made to order, hearty and simple street style dishes you enjoy today!
