WOW!!! This was flat out the most pleasant food experience I have had in a looong time! I had been meaning to try it out but hesitated because I had heard there was some room for improvement and weren't what they 'used to be'. I decided to try it anyways and apparently they have made serious strides in whatever way(s) they needed improvement because everything about the experience was absolutely incredible!!! Everything inside the building was 100% authentic, from the decorations, the people, and of course the food. Everything was fresh, authentic, and just delicious.. to top it off the prices are unbeatable. The (apparently new?) customer service from the gentleman was absolutely perfect, efficient, and completely genuine.. it was everything a small business should be! (that unfortunately doesn't exist much anymore) This is simply just a small down-to-earth (almost café style) Mexican restaurant with outstanding customer service, and incredible/fresh food, at extremely frugal prices! ..I seriously don't know what more we could ask for! I won't bore you with what I ordered and all that but I will say I started with some guacamole that is as good as it gets, as for the entrees just go check it out yourself and feel free to ask for help if you cant decide. I am never one to complain but with this experience so enjoyable it deserves to be said, and said boldly! *Go to Taco Roc ASAP and support this gem of a restaurant!
Whether you're like me and like to pile on flavors, or like my wife who prefers a simpler, healthy dish she can customize, Mojo Burrito will satisfy. They have a menu to take guesswork out of eating, or you can create your own burrito/wrap/salad and more. Options for vegetarians and omnivores alike. Great beverage selection and great beers to choose from, but don't be afraid to bring the family. Cool indoor seating with diner tables and artwork on the walls ranging from kitschy to classic, or you can sit in the back outside surrounded by nature. Best of all, parking's easy. Best option is to park at the Incline and walk (less than a minute on foot). You can see all the cool shops, a gallery, a cafe, and even a climbing gym. The St. Elmo area is a really cool historic section of Chattanooga. My fave at Mojo: the Mountain Bowl, with their chips and house salsa. Wife's fave: black bean burrito with black olives, tomatoes, sour cream, and maybe a little hot sauce.
Abuelo's restraunt has great atmosphere with authentic statutes, wall murals, and the beautiful painted celling of the sky makes one feel that they are in a courtyard in a mexican resort. Our waiter was very helpful and informative about the food. The food was not overpriced. The bathroom was clean and well supplied. I had a great lunch experience at Abuelo's restraunt. I lost my favorite Lauren scarf there. The next day I called and they have it and are keeping it for me until I can make the trip back to Chattnooga to get it.
