Mayan Kitchen

For a taste of authentic Latin American food, Mayan Kitchen is a favorite. Enchiladas, burritos, tacos, nachos, fajitas — all these menu staples are fantastic. The all-day menu is full of favorites, including their queso fundido and other appetizers such as fried calamari, fried plantain chips served with mojo sauce, and ceviche. For something different, try the Huachinango Al Mojo De Ajo: a pan-fried red snapper filet with fresh garlic, onions, tomatoes, jalapeños, and cilantro served with rice. The tapas options also are excellent, such as the Longaniza Blanca — Guatemalan white sausage with chojin (pork cracklings, radishes, tomatoes, red onions, mint, and lime juice) served with tortillas.

Sugar’s Ribs

This place has been satisfying Chattanooga Q needs with a tasty selection of spare ribs, pulled pork, brisket, chicken, and smoked sausage for years. You can also order a variety of platter meals accompanied by your choice of sides, such as spicy vinegar slaw, turnip greens, Texas pintos, mac and cheese, wood-grilled okra, and more. The great thing about this place is the menu is packed with flavor from other amazing options with a creative barbecue twist. The tacos are a must-try — your choice of meat served on fresh-made corn tortillas with lime crema sauce, grilled sweet onion, queso fresco, roasted salsa, and cilantro.

Bridgeman’s Chophouse

If you’re craving a steak with some upscale flair for a fine-dining experience at home, Bridgeman’s Chophouse — a famous downtown Chattanooga establishment — can be delivered to your doorstep quickly, or opt for a short stroll around the corner to pick up dinner. Take your pick between a USDA prime hand-cut filet, bone-in ribeye, or New York strip with your choice of sides. Of course, one of the menu favorites is the 16 oz. Delmonico ribeye aged 75–90 days! The appetizers are winners, too, especially the jumbo lump crab cakes, colossal shrimp martini, frog legs, scallops, a chilled seafood tower, and more. If you’re looking for something to accommodate your steak, seafood, duck, lamb, or chicken option, their savory sides are perfect — smoked cheddar mashed potatoes, cream spinach, white truffle mac and cheese, and charred broccolini, just to name a few.

City Café Diner

From Benedicts and omelets to pancakes and waffles, everything is full of flavor. Try the German-style potato pancakes served with applesauce and sour cream, or the classic sausage, biscuits, and gravy served with home fries or grits. If you’re not in a breakfast mood, opt for the shepherd’s pie, Penne Mardi Gras, Salmon Monte Carlo, or Seafood Magnolia. And please keep in mind, their homemade desserts are legendary!
