Chatt Taste is bringing a new meaning to Taco Tuesdays with its Taco Tuesday Food Tour that takes guests to three of Chattanooga’s most famous taco restaurants.
Chatt Taste launched its Taco Tuesday Food Tour in October 2019, or as they like to call it “Taco Toursday.” Chatt Taste hosts Taco Toursday every Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Briana Garza, Chatt Taste tour guide and co-founder, expressed her opinion of the tour experience. “Taco Toursday is a fun spin on an already popular theme,” she said.
The tour covers three miles of Chattanooga, from the Northshore to downtown. For $33 a person, the tour includes food stops at Poblano’s Mexican Cuisine, Mexiville and Citron Et Sel.
At each location guests will receive the restaurant’s choice of taco, each providing a different taste. These samples allow guests to try new foods without the commitment of the full meal. Those with dietary preferences have nothing to fear as Chatt Taste will help make accommodations at each restaurant.
Guests will meet and be dropped off at Poblano’s Mexican Cuisine, 551 River St., which is the first restaurant to kick off the tour.
Garza said, “Owner/Chef Adrian replicated his home town of Guadalajara, Mexico with the Heart of Mexico mural proudly displayed as guests walk into Poblano’s.”
Poblano’s Mexican Cuisine is a short drive from UTC’s campus and provides free parking for guests during the tour.
Guests will then take the shuttle to Mexiville’s Northshore location, 811 Market St., to partake in their second round of tacos.
The third and final stop of the tour is Citron Et Sel, 212 West Eighth St., where guests will have the opportunity to explore Chattanooga’s West Village before they are brought back to their cars.
Transportation between the locations is included in the $33 ticket price and is provided by ChattyWagon. ChattyWagon provides a private shuttle service to all Taco Toursday guests. While being transported from restaurant to restaurant, guests can enjoy the historic sites and mountain views the Scenic City has to offer.
Chatt Taste’s Taco Tuesday Food Tour eliminates the wait time for guests on busy Taco Tuesday nights. Chatt Taste’s tours are led by highly trained guides that offer a whole new experience to dining.
Garza said that Taco Toursdays offer guests “information regarding each restaurateur, events and history that is not provided during a typical visit.”
Once guests have purchased their tickets they will receive a confirmation email with parking instructions, all they have to do is arrive and everything is done for them.
“Guests are not required to make transactions while on the tour,” Garza said. “All food, drinks and gratuity are included in the price; which ultimately comes out to be cost-saving for guests. The food is incredible but the ease Chatt Taste provides is unparalleled.”
