South of the Scenic City Border

In our city, we have a delightfully diverse cultural population, leading to a wide variety of ethnic restaurants. However, Mexican and Tex-Mex restaurants far outnumber all others, many of which are very authentic. Below is a sampling of some of our favorites (not including Poblano’s, our top favorite, which has its own blog post!)


Chicken enchiladas from Delia’s


Taco salad from Fiesta Mexicana


Chicken chimichanga from Las Margaritas

    My hometown of Chattanooga has some great ethnic places to eat but Mexican/Latin is by far the most popular. Lots of good stuff!

        I thought I had been following you but I saw a note that said Tony got you a new blog with WordPress as you had been with Tumblr. Hey, chronic pain and insomnia can really play havoc on the mind. LOL! Anyway, I love your recipes!
