Great food and unique menu. Food is always fresh and consistent. The only negative comments would be with the limited seating and poor ventilation. The odors from the kitchen in the small space can be quite overwhelming.

This is the best restaurant in Elizabethton. That's not saying much, since there are very few restaurants that AREN'T chains in Eliz, but this one is a real gem. Every time I'm in town I look forward to grabbing lunch here. Authentic and delicious.

I've heard great things about this restaurant but have never been until today. I'm so glad I did! Very good spicy food and the sweet tea was yummy too! Great combination for a town like Elizabethton 👍 I will definitely be back!

I've tried tons of things here and always loved them. My staples are the pork dumplings and blue chicken. When I'm visiting town I always try to make it a point to stop here. This place is seriously addictive and I wish they were always open so I could take advantage of the killer food.

The Red Chili is a great place to eat. I love the Cracklin Rice. I have also tried the Sobe Noodles with beef it's really good and the blue chicken is also. Go try it,you wont regret it.

This tiny little stop is a frequent lunch spot for our family! We absolutely LOVE the food. It's affordable and delicious! If you haven't tried it, you need to! It is a very small place but the flavors are big!

I love holes in the wall. That's where, in my opinion, the best food is 99.9% of the time. This hole in the wall is no exception. The atmosphere is awesome and seems very authentic - as well as the food. Must try the ginger chicken...it is one of the most amazing things I've ever eaten! One disappointing thing is... More
