First Experience

This was the first time I've been to La Chata. They've brightened up the old Rib City location and made it feel a little cozier. The heavy wood chairs and bright orange colors give that rustic feel to the place. Pros - The assistant server was friendly. An older woman was the server, I'm... read more

My friend and I ate at LA chata last night for dinner. We love queso nachos with chicken so we ordered the nachos la chata. It was not what we were expecting. Very little shredded chicken, lots of orange cheese and beans and a huge amount of tubed on sour cream. My friend ate 2 bites of her 10$ nachos.... More

This review is actually for the Cottleville location. First off, there were several larger tables open when we arrived, but because there were only two of us, we had to wait. It wasn't like people were streaming in the door. When we were finally seated, it was at a 4 person table? We ordered water with lemon, our normal beverage... More

I love Mexican food and eat it often. This was horrible. You can usually tell how the food is by the chips and salsa. That should have been my first clue. Chips were greasy, salsa was bland. The margaritas were good but the food was awful.

We won't go back. My family was sat down at a table with no silverware. The hostess didn't seem to even notice. I opened my menu, which was simply a photocopied folded piece of paper that had stains and water spots on it. There were no margaritas even listed on the menu. The house margaritas we got were very weak.... More

La Chata recently relocated from O'Fallon to St. Peters. The new site has housed at least 4 other restaurants since it opened. We had hoped that it might be another good spot for lunch, but we were disappointed. When we walked in for lunch (a little later than the usual lunchtime) they had about 4 tables occupied. We waited by... More

Waited for-ever for our food, some folks over an hour. Had to pay for mediocre chips, salsa is okay. This place has gone way down hill. Disappointed

Brand new digs on Mid Rivers Mall Drive...the place looks great. I've had Camarones a la Diabla in 3 different states and two different countries. No one holds a candle to La Chata's version. The way I eat this heavenly dish, and I have for years, is; I mix my salad, which is vinegar based into the hot and sweet... More
