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!

Was just randomly looking for a Mexican place for lunch, saw this place had good reviews and decided to stop in, and I’m so glad I did! The food is absolutely amazing and is owned and operated by the nicest young man. We sat inside and ate burritos and tacos and enjoyed all of it. The sauces and chips and salsa are on point! Definitely give this place a try if you’re ever in the area!

Absolutely amazing food!!! I moved to Knoxville 7+ months ago, I found this place tonight unexpectedly and it is some of the best food I’ve had since being here. Full of fresh and flavorful ingredients and some of the nicest dudes throwing it together in the kitchen. I will forever recommend this place to others!!!!

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!
