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

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

We have enjoyed and continue to support our LaChata family Laticia and Louise for 20 years. So proud and happy for their continued success providing excellent true Mexican family food

La Chata's is the best Mexican food. Laticia and Louis are great hosts and owners, their recipes are excellent. They make you feel like you are family when you are there. Everything is just fantastic. Not a fancy place but a comfortable place to eat and celebrate the special times in your life. My sister-in law says they have the... More

La Chata has recently moved to Mid Rivers, across from Calvary church. This is a great restaurant which was recently located in O'Fallon. Very authentic Mexican, with an exceptional green sauce. Try the roasted poblamo pepper as an appetizer. Try the new location, you will not be disappointed
