Got Salt?

So, what do margaritas and tortilla chips have in common? Aside from being a delicious gift from the Heavens…. Yep, you guessed it – SALT! Not only that, but they also share the same National Food & Drink Week – this week! (All the more reason to eat at Amigo’s, right??!) In homage of this Mexican, flavor-filled week, here are 5 reasons to come to Amigo Mexican Restaurant looking for your lost shaker of salt.

1. Two for One Margs. To share or not to share? You decide. Get two margaritas for the price of one during happy hour, everyday. Flavored, traditional, frozen, or on the rocks, you can’t go beat an Amigo’s margarita. Call your favorite location for specific times and prices.

2. All the Dips. Consider the tortilla chip your edible spoon for delicious, freshly prepared dips. We’re talkin’ guac, queso, bean, spinach, and Amigo dip! Heck, order all 5 and double dip, we’re not judging.

3. Salt = Healthy. Studies have shown that an adequate amount of sodium actually encourages a healthy weight and fast metabolism. With that said, bring on the bottomless chips! And can we get an amen for the extra salt rimmed margarita?! Amen.

4. On a Budget? No Problem. There’s no denying that everyone needs authentic Mexican and Tex-Mex in their life (cough... a couple of times a week, at minimum). We can also agree that there’s no need in spending a fortune to enjoy it either. Join us for a budget-friendly fiesta today!

5. Make it an Amigo Fiesta! Bring a friend and stop in for some gooey queso goodness, kickin’ margaritas, warm tortillas, fresh chips and salsa, and authentic Mexican food that can’t be beat.

Queso: Your One True Love

Mexican restaurant ChattanoogaThe secret is out. You don’t have to lie about it anymore. We all know that queso is your one true love in life. It comforts you like a giant hug after a tough day, it puts a smile on your face and lets you know that everything is going to be okay in the world.

After all, what’s not to love?! It’s ooey, gooey, rich and creamy, cheesy deliciousness. We don’t know about you, but we’d basically bathe in it if that were a thing. Is that a thing?! There are countless reasons queso is the numero uno in your life. As some ancient poet once said, “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…”

Queso doesn’t judge you. It doesn’t care if you double dip. It doesn’t keep track of many times you’ve devoured the entire bowl all on your own. Queso doesn’t even care if you eat it with a tortilla chip. You can eat it with a spoon or skip the formalities and just drink it from the bowl. Queso loves you for who you are.

That cheesy goodness is the perfect mix of predictability and spontaneity. Whether its lunch, dinner or an afternoon snack, it never disappoints and always hits the spot. You know it’s always going to be mouth wateringly tasty… and even if you don’t want to admit it, there are never going to be leftovers.

It’s versatile and the perfect accompaniment to any season. It warms you to the core in the winter and pairs perfectly with your marg come summer. Queso makes an appealing appetizer, addition to your burrito or topping for your dessert. You can never go wrong when queso is involved.

We’re pretty sure queso translates into love. It’s always there, never judging or letting you down. It doesn’t care if you double dip or eat it in sweats without make-up. Going through a breakup or worse, a case of the hangrys? Queso always has your back and is there to help. Queso comforts and its love knows no bounds.

Come see us at one of our Elizabethton, Johnson City or Chattanooga Mexican restaurants to get your fix and cure your Mexican food and queso craving.
