Greeted by a kind gentleman, excellent service. Delicious food.. and the margaritas were delicious. 10/10 would dine again. The appetizer (queso fundido) was not what I expected but was absolutely divine.

Seven of us celebrated our daughter's birthday and she loved it. The service was great and the decor really cute, and everyone left full and happy. We did pay $3 for a side of guacamole and another $3 for a salsa trio, but total bill for 5 hungry teens and two adults was still under $90

Holiday weekend evening and we were the one of a few tables. Was wondering if we made a good choice as the restaurant was slow. Overall... food was good! Wait staff could use a smile and be a more engaging. (With as slow as it was we were left wondering why so slow in taking our order) Recommendations to the... More

We visited this restaurant at the Cottleville location. Good decor and atmosphere. It was not crowded, yet they sat us right next to the only other couple in the restaurant. It was awkward because there was an open restaurant and then two groups smushed together. We did not get offered chips and salsa until we asked for it. The waitress... More

Went here for dinner the other night. Got chips & queso, burritos, and empanadas. All were good, and the queso and empanadas were unique tasting. Very good service. Would go again, if in the area. $31 with tip for 2.

My wife and I have been there a couple of times now and we were quite pleased with the food and the service. My ONLY criticism would be the Chille Relleno which had excellent flavor but the poblano pepper was overcooked for my taste. (I like a little more texture to it.) To date, we've had the Tamal, the Enchilada... More

The chips and salsa were okay, but not any better than an average chain Mexican restaurant, like the rice and beans. The tortillas were basically just flour and water, and the service wasn't great. I'd choose El Maquey or Chimi's over this any time I want Mexican.

The food at this restaurant is great. They have authentic Mexican food, which I love. The restaurant is large and spacious and great for my company to have business meetings. I hope to come back with a large group the next time I visit La Chata. I would recommend eating here you will not be disappointed.

Thank Michael G
