Authentic fare

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

My husband and I had lunch here today. I had the chicken enchilada special - amazing! Greg had the flautas and was equally satisfied. Everything was so fresh and flavorful. This is definitely on our list to repeat when we are in Chattanooga.

There are plenty of Mexican restaurants in Chattanooga but this is my favorite to date. Food is prepared in a food truck connected to the enclosed outside seating area. Seating is limited, but they have an enclosed outside seating area with heating units so we were quite comfortable. Guacamole was very good as were the chips. Salsa verde and other... More

Street Tacos, Burritos, Tostadas, I've never had a bad experience at this place. I've been to the location downtown by Miller plaza and the food truck, both were very good.
