Great ambiance and service, but not a fan of the food

THIS IS FOR THE ST. PETERS' LOCATION OF LA CHATA MEXICAN RESTAURANT * I have only been once and I was not impressed with the food. I had a chile rellano and a chicken enchilada. The chile rellano was pretty good, but the enchilada was not at all. I did not want to pay $4.75 for rice and beans so... read more

Went here last Friday night, had chicken enchiladas and within 2 1/2 hours got severe food poisoning. I'm an RN and am sure that it was. 2 others in my party had bathroom issues as well but not as severe as myself. When I called the restaurant to let them know, the manager just denied that was even a possibility.... More

We had 5 teens and 4 adults and all of us enjoyed a great meal and great evening at the Mid Rivers location. The service was attentive and fast and the food wonderful and the decor very cool. We got to meet the owners and they were very nice too. We inhaled the chips, which weren't free but were yummy,... 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
