The service was five stars...attentive, friendly and all around made us feel welcome. The food was perfect...not greasy--just the right amount of sauce. It was truly a gourmet Mexican meal.

I came to see Marisa McKay's Thursday night writer's night - great music. I also had the veggie enchiladas - great flavor and very filling. Service was fast and friendly. I will be back,

Bar service for the first round was extremely slow. We had chips and salsa immediately upon sitting down but no waters and a long wait for drinks.

Food arrived timely but was not real hot. Overall not a great experience.

Everything I've ever eaten here has been delicious. Creative taste combinations. Generous servings.
Lively atmosphere and loud "background" music. If you want a quiet conversation, this isn't the place to go.

My wife and I love Sopapilla's, and this visit was no exception to the excellent food and service we've come to expect. Sopapilla's is a great option when you're looking for something nicer than Las Palmas, and you're tired of Tex Mex in general. We've had quite a few items off the menu over the years and I've never had a bad meal. This time around I got two tacos—baja fish and Nashville hot chicken. Both were perfectly cooked. The hot chicken in particular was the perfect blend of honey and spice; the flavor was more complex than other hot chicken I've had in town. Sopapilla's always delivers on flavor with just the right amount of heat.

My only complaint is that they offered free dessert sopapillas for years and recently changed that policy so they are now 4 for $4. I understand that they may need to charge for them now (I'm not happy about it, but I get it), but I wish there was the option to only get 2 for $2, as my wife and I are usually here on dates and don't really need four at a time.

The manager actually came to our table to apologize and since we waited 40 minutes for our drinks which were ordered at the same time as apps, we had finished our apps. Then to our surprise she said she had the wrong table and instead of being polite and asking how our meal was her only comment was “oh, wrong table”. I’ve never experienced a manager being so rude. We spent over 2 hours and barely to any food or drinks. Worst experience ever.

We randomly stopped in for a quick late lunch before we drove back to Knoxville and we were blown away by the quality. The house margaritas were excellent and the food was creative and delicious! We will go back next time we are in town for sure!

We frequent your establishment and love it. The food was great, but the service was sub-par. My husband went without a drink for far too long, and finally had to ask a passing server (not ours) to fill his water. We were sat in the back room, which may have been why our service wasn't great.

Went with some friends on Valentine’s Day and it took forever to get our food. The waiter was very attentive but the kitchen took way too long to get our food. I thought they may be raising the chickens to butcher for my chicken enchiladas.
