Taco Mamacita is one of Chattanooga's best, most vibrant local restaurants, and arguably one of the best taco joints in the southeast. Owned and operated by locally-renowned restaurant aficionados, Taylor and Mike Monen (owners of other Chattanooga favorites like Urban Stack, Clyde's On Main, and Community Pie), this fresh-mex restaurant is always a fun place to visit for some high quality food and drink.
Their specialty tacos are diverse, creative, and fresh as can be. Made-from-scratch everyday with high quality ingredients, these tacos will make your taste buds sing... probably something to the tune of La Bamba. Some of our favorites include the Taco Royale, which is a double stacked taco filled with tender chicken, flavorful chorizo, and a ridiculously delicious chipotle cream sauce, and the General Homeboy, which is filled with breaded shrimp drenched in a sweet and spicy Thai chili sauce and topped with cilantro, cabbage, and green onions.
The running deal here is two tacos and a side for a reasonable $8.99, and the sides, particularly the Mexican Street Corn and sweet potato fries, are great additions. The appetizers are top notch as well, with the Nacho Mama being the standout.
Top all of these meals off with one (or a few) of the exceptional cocktails on offer. The seasonal mojitos are beyond refreshing. The margaritas, like the El Vez, are some of the best in town. And the sangria isn't overly sweet. Taco Mama is the best place to be after a long, burly day in the woods. Phone: (423) 648-6262
