Our family went out of the way to eat here given the stellar reviews. Essentially it was a very trendy small eating area with a food truck pulled up to one side. They get points for keeping things simple, but most of the food seemed prep related and came out of the microwave. We ended up sitting near the bathroom,... More

I've been telling my wife about this place for a year and we were back in Chattanooga at New Year's so we went for lunch. Unfortunately, the food just wasn't fresh. The beef was cold and dry, as was the tortilla.

Good food and service. It's not on the beaten path, parking options aren't the best, and you may pass by it twice before you realize you're there since it's such a small venue. The experience, however, is a good one.

Our party enjoyed the chicken & pork tamales, beef taco and burrito. All were very good & the price is reasonable. Chips and salsa are not a part of your meal. We had to order those from the list of appetizers at a price of $3.50. Even though it appears as a "hole in the wall" & one might question... More

Found this easily from I24. We were looking for a quick lunch and found this. Food was served quickly and was delicious! Jorge, our waiter, was very helpful in helping select our menu items. This helped me especially since I am on a restricted diet. The price was extremely reasonable.

This is a favorite of my 3 local grandchildren who are scattered everywhere..we always go here when they are in town. Vary authentic food..everything is good. Start with homemade chip & homemade salsa. Pick any other item on the menu..Tacos are excellent....meat,chicken or fish.You come here for the food...not the atmosphere or ambiance.

Everything about this place is great. It's a tiny little spot kind of hidden away, but well worth stopping by for a tasty meal. You can expect to find typical Mexican options, but there's so much more including huaraches and sopes that are excellent. Didn't have the guacamole that so many have mentioned, but a couple next to us ordered... More
