Yes,  the Alamo is in Texas, but here in the Smoky Mountains, the Alamo is known as a fine steakhouse. Located in both Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, the Alamo serves steak like you won’t even believe it. They are also famous for their burgers, soups, sauces, homemade bread and mozzarella sticks. Additionally, the Alamo restaurant has 7 sister restaurants that are located within the area and they can be found here. All of which are just as good as the Alamo. If you are looking for a great meal, look no further than this delicious steakhouse. Check out the website to make a reservation in advance!
