El Meson Restaurante Mexicano
Ranked #503 of 837 Restaurants in Chattanooga
Price range: $5 - $15
Cuisines: Mexican
Description: Many years ago, in the state of Jalisco in Mexico, the land was dotted with farms growing the blue agave plant-the plant crucial for making tequila. There were inns scattered among the farms, inns that had stables, restaurants, bars, and were a place where the workers from the farms would come together, a place where they could be comfortable together. That comfort-that togetherness-was exactly what the Ruiz's were aiming for when they opened El Meson Restaurante Mexicano over twenty years ago at Hamilton Place. In early 2009, a second El Meson Restaurante Mexicano opened in Hixson. The new restaurant is at 248 Northgate Mall Dr., Suite 114 in the Northgate Mall area and seats approximately 250 people. It too, hearkens back to the comfortable atmosphere and family cooking that have made the original such a favorite.

Still looking for fantastic Mexican food in Chattanooga. Once again Not good,not bad. We were not impressed,nor was it memorable. The salsa had a really wierd and odd taste. Did Not like it. Yuk.Will never eat there again. It looks more like a bar/dive.
