Amigo's Mexican Restaurant: "The best Mexican Food in the city!" Top 5 Page for this destination Chattanooga Restaurant Tip by soundsgoodtome

Chattanooga Restaurants: 57 reviews and 90 photos

Amigo's is a locally owned and operated family restaurant with the best authentic Mexican food in the city, maybe even the best outside of Mexico. The atmosphere is great, with televisions around so everyone can see at least one (normally has sports on), traditional Mexican music playing in the background, and beer and margaritas for those who wish to have alcohol (It is nothing like a bar and is a great place for families despite this). The only thing better than the food is the service and the prices. Most dinner entrees are between $5 and $7, and the portions are large enough to satisfy even the hungriest appetites. When I am in town I eat here at least once every other week, most often more.

Favorite Dish: I normally get a couple of enchiladas with mexican rice, beans, and a taco or chalupa. However, I guarantee that no matter what you order, it will be some of the best Mexican food you can get anywhere.

Unfortunately, Amigo's does not have a location in the downtown area. However, all four locations are between 5 and 15 minutes away and are pretty easy to find. The closest location to downtown is at 1906 Dayton Blvd., slightly north of the city. The next is located at 3805 Ringgold Road in the Osborne Center in East Ridge. The third is at 5794 Brainerd Road in the Brainerd Village shopping center near EastGate Town Center. The fourth, and furthest from the city, is located at 5450 Highway 153, which is near Northgate Mall in Hixson. If you wish to eat here while visiting Chattanooga, you could ask for directions from someone at your hotel or look them up in the phone book and call for directions.
