Restaurant details
Reviewed July 26, 2013

I've been eating here for years. The appetizers are good, and all the entrees are perfectly prepared. For my money, the Camarones a la Diabas (the devil shrimp) entree here cannot be beat - a must try dish. The folks running the establishment are very friendly.

All their food is excellent.I had the Chilli Verde, tender pork cubes in a spicy flavorful sauce. The decor is interesting and the hosts (owners I think) are wonderful.

La Chata's is the best Mexican food, Laticia and Louis are the best hosts and owners, their recipes are all family recipies. I cannot say enough about them, they make you feel like you are family when you are there. The chicken taquitos are the best so are the dorados, well everything is just fantastic. Not a fancy place but a comfortable place to eat and celebrate the special times in your life.

I love this place. The food is fantastic, the staff is wonderful. I have been several times and have noticed many regulars. O'Fallon is now non-smoking, so I can hang out in the bar without getting other people's smoke in my clothes. There is an outside patio off the bar where people can go if they need to light up. They have added a fireplace on the patio so you can hang out there even in the winter if you choose.

There is often musical entertainment as well. The bartenders are very friendly. The have a good selection of liquor, including some premium tequilas. Watch if you're drinking, because the tab can get kind of high.

Our family started dining at La Chata when it was had take out and very limited seating off of Hwy K in Ofallon MO in 1995. Laticia, Patricia, Louise, along with their Papa, have grown into a larger restaurant still in the same location. When they adversise that they are authentic, they are, trust me. We feel special everytime we dine there.
Their salsa is more of a tomato sauce, their salsa mexicano is a pica de gallo. Exeptional is
their verde sauce, not only has some heat , but has a wonderful distinct flavor with the tomatillo.
9 out of 10 times I get a pork tomal and enchilada with verde. Their margaitas are home made mix, which one can dicipher from a mix. They are exceptional. They have entertainment on weekends, usually a single singer with a tape/cd player, but he is truly authentic and one
feels like they are in Mexico at a family restaurant. Many years of success to La Chata,
