Unbelievably Wonderful

Decided to try something different for lunch on our anniversary. Quaint and wonderful in every way. Staff so helpful. Recommended appetizers since we wanted to try several things. We will never forget such a special experience.

This little gem was within walking distance of our hotel -- The Chattanooga Choo Choo. It was kid friendly and was even able to aptly accommodate the food allergies our son. The guacamole was so good, we ordered a second bowl for our party of 5. The empanada special of the day were awesome and a fave. Mexican Coke in... More

Awesome, awesome tamales! The verde is to die for, all the veggies were super fresh. The homemade chips were crunchy and delicious! We really enjoyed the small inside dining area, it reminded me of little cafe's in Europe, friendly staff, authentic food, I might have been in Mexico!

Basically a food truck, this place is not fancy. But that's ok because it is delicious! Some of the most authentic Mexican food I've had. Great place, even being in a slightly sketchy area of town. Would definitely come back.

I love Mexican food, eating at a lot of restaurants in Hillsboro -- which has a large Hispanic population. My brother took us to Taqueria Jalisco for dinner -- and the food was delicious. Joy and I shared some superb guacamole, and I had Sincronisada for my meal, along with some very delicious Strawberry Jalapeño soda. Highly Recommended.

We stopped in one night based on the reviews here on TA. It's located in a small brick building that has covered outdoor seating and a small but nice interior. There are only a few tables inside so thankfully they were not busy when we came in. The places here in Florida where we live offer chips & salsa at... More

I haven't been to this South Side location, but I've been to the new location in Miller Plaza several times and I don't even live in Chattanooga. They have authentic and delicious Mexican food, but you can get some things TexMex. For example they have regular Mexican tacos or you can get them American style. I think the Miller Plaza... More
