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

To start off , we walked to the door to see a sign that said cash and checks only. Had to walk to the end of the street to get money for dinner. When we got back to the restaurant there was 2 open tables and two tables against the opposite wall that you had to sit side by side.... More

This little local restaurant is a "must" if you like spicy food. We recently had lunch here after returning several times when we are in the area. The space is small with maybe six tables and a counter with some stools. Very noisy when crowded but worth it !My selection came out in a hot cast iron bowl set in... More
