Had appetizers of BBQ Nachos..big plate. Most of party had Burrito bowls where you choose your own fixings on top of the base meat/protein. Tasty quick food.

This is the best place to get your order to your liking and see it put together. The food is great and very filling. I never leave here hungry. Plenty of food with any order. Go early or late for lunch. This place is a big lunch spot for the locals. Very Good!

Would be rated higher, but there's no vegetarian proteins. Tofu, quinoa, veggie burgers please! Fabulous liquor selection to make anything you desire, even high end labels. Perfectly paired beers, tequila or wine

This is the best place in town to get fish tacos. When the weather is suitable, be sure to sit in the outdoor eating. Very relaxing.

I have always really enjoyed Swanky's. I have to admit I liked the atmosphere and service better when it wasn't corporate. However, still good food. I have always gotten the salads and they are really good and filling. Yesterday I ordered the chicken enchiladas for the first time and they were great. Will definitely order those again. I recommend this... More

This a good place to eat. Good choices on menu. Not an authentic Mexican food place but better than Tex-Mex. Great atmosphere and a good place to eat if you're meeting friends.

I eat here because it is close to work but I really don;t like it. I do however love the chops and salsa and their queso dip. There is just something missing for me in the flavors. I tried something different yesterday--the chicken enchiladas. They came with black beans and rice. Beans were OK and rice was tasteless. I liked... More

One of the best fast lunches in town, it would get 5 stars if it was a little less expensive. Good but not the best value in town.

The Chicken Chimichanga is very good. Full of meat and great spices. They have done something to the black beans which I cannot detect but they are not as good as they used to be. The grilled fish tacos are very tasty but has the smallest piece of fish possible. Cheese dip and salsa may be best in city.

A very good place, mostly reliable, and fast. A very pleasant outdoor seating arrangement, when the weather is nice. The salsa we were given was essentially frozen slush, a real drawback because good salsa and chips are essential. The East Memphis location may be a bit better, though I want to support the Germantown location.
