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

Ordered chili Relleno, soggy, mushy, no flavor, and floating in a watery sauce. Truly disgusting, and the worst I have ever had. Friends ordered fajitas, and the green peppers were completely raw. Salsa looked like a dark tomato soup, no flavor, no texture and just ran off your chips. I can honestly say, I've never experienced a restaurant with such... More

My husband and I just got back from lunch at La Chata. The restaurant is east to find on Hwy K and is very nicely decorated. Our waitress was very nice and pleasant. There is a lot to choose from on the menu, however this menu was very dirty and has a lot of food spills on it. I ordered... More

I must say that everything I ordered was excellent and since it was a carry out order the presentation was very appetizing. The chicken tortilla soup had a very unique and authentic flavor to it. The pork burritos average size but with a very nice red sauce and the carne asada burrito with hot or green sauce was excellent not... More

I've been eating here for years. The appetizers are good, and all the entrees are perfectly prepared. For my money, the Camarones a la Diabas (the devil shrimp) entree here cannot be beat - a must try dish. The folks running the establishment are very friendly.

All their food is excellent.I had the Chilli Verde, tender pork cubes in a spicy flavorful sauce. The decor is interesting and the hosts (owners I think) are wonderful.
