I believe the other times I rated this restaurant it was given a Very Good. This time, however, I can only give it an average based on today's visit. The food was tasty, but the shell that it was served on was undercooked. Very disappointing since I requested it be cooked extra as to make it crunchy. TIP: Seating is... More

All of these reviews had me excited to try this place out. Unfortunately I was not so empressed. Don't get me wrong it was not bad, it just was not wowing like everyone else has said. Be warned the tortilla chip are flour (not corn) and they are not complimentary. So don't go expecting them to be brought to your... More

My grandson & I have lunch together weekly depending on our schedules. We try different restaurants....always locally owned...not chains. We had not been to Taqueria in some time. Everything on the menu is excellent....many choices to suit anyone. The chips & salsa are excellent,,homemade. Try to avoid peak lunch hours...small restaurant...well worth a visit.

We ventured here on the suggestion of a friend. The atmosphere could use some upgrading but the food was exceptional. Nothing like your run of the mill Mexican joints. The service was prompt and pleasant as well. Not much seating. Lots of customers for an early supper hour.

I don't eat here as often as i'd like as it's a lunch place for us, but when i do i am always impressed by the freshness and originality. No other mexican restaurant in Chattanooga is like it. Great variety, particularly for vegetarians, but meat and veggie options for most every item on the menu. Papusas with lightly pickled slaw... More

This is the third time I have eaten at this restaurant and wow, I have been impressed each time. The food is authentic, all the way....they even have stuff on the menu that you don't see at your everyday Mexican restaurant. You order at the counter and they bring your food out to you. There's not much seating inside the... More

Go for the food it's the best tex mex in downtown. George the owner is a very curious little guy that adds more flavor to this 12 seat restaurant.

This is one of the top restaurants in town, and we know why after a Saturday night after a wine tasting at DeBarge. You can walk the one block so if you are tipsy after your tasting no need to drive. The restaurant is small (4 tables) and only open until 7 pm. With all that said I wish I... More
