MARGARITA

Good mood, bad mood... whatever the mood, our delicious dishes and tasty treats are sure to hit the spot. We'll help you select the perfect meal to put a smile on your face and goodness in your stomach.

Nachos: You didn’t come to cut your food up and push it around your plate, you nacho lover you. You came to get messy and dig in. Forget the bib they gave you at the seafood restaurant, you sat down equipped with all you need… hands and napkins. Stressed, depressed, elated or just plain hangry, you know that those crunchy chips and delicious toppings leave you feeling oh so satisfied.

Burrito: Unlike the messy nacho fan with guacamole on his elbows and queso on his cheeks, you prefer a neater approach to dining. We can’t say we blame you, though. While there is something to be said for a stack of chips, cheese, meat, beans and toppings, it can’t compare to the gift wrap you can eat. You ice princess, burrito eater, you don’t wear your emotions or food on your sleeve. You prefer your ingredients neatly rolled away, just like your feelings.

Pollo Picoso: There’s no denying that you like it hot, hot, hot. Whether it’s the queso or the spicy salsa, the Pollo Picoso gets your blood pumping. You aren’t the one to walk away from a situation, you suit up and hit the field. You are the type that always chooses dare, accepts all challenges and thinks you are the toughest guy in the room. If you can finish the Pollo Picoso, you’ve won the Amigo championship.

Margaritas: Ms. “I’d rather drink my calories”, we feel you. Breakups and celebrations alike both pair well with ice cold tequila. You’ve had years of practice honing your wildcard status and recognize that the only thing better than a margarita is two margaritas. We enjoy your appreciation of tequila, questionable decision making and ability to rally like the champ you are. Now, go ahead and order the queso or the guac’… you know you want it and we won’t tell.

Dinner drinkers and Mexican food lovers can all unite over dinner at Amigo Mexican Restaurant. One warning, "we may be habit forming."

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.

Chattanooga mexican restaurantThere is no denying that your mom is your hero and deserves to be treated like a queen at least once a year. This Mother’s Day, give the gift every mom wants… margaritas and Mexican food.

Here are just a few reasons that the #1 woman in your life deserves margaritas this Mother’s Day.

You are the Reason She Drinks.
There is no denying that through the years, you have caused your mother worry and given her a few grey hairs. While botox and hair color may help to elevate these issues, tequila is a far more economical choice, and much tastier if you’re asking our opinions.

She raised an amazing child.
We all know Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither were you. She stuck by you through the terrible twos that lingered until age 18. She didn’t make fun of you during your awkward phases, and she continued to be your parent when the going got tough. All and all, she raised a pretty amazing child, right!? Reward her with the good stuff.

It’s a Tuesday
Let’s face it, being a mom is a full time job with limited vacation and sick days. Even though you may be a (cough, cough) adult these days, you still rely on that little lady. Think of all the times she was awake with you during the night when you were sick or convinced there were monsters under your bed.

She’s a jack of all trades.
While you may know her as mom or mommy or mama… chances are that she is wearing more hats than that. She spent years serving as your cook, housekeeper, launderer, taxi driver, nurse and so on. Our guess is that she did all of these things without a thank you. Here’s your chance to make it up to her.

Because she told you so.
“Why do I have to clean my room?” “…because I said so.” “Why can’t I go?” “ …because I said so.” Those have to be every mother’s famous words. Why do you take her out for margaritas? Because she said so that’s why! And if that isn’t reason enough, then you are not winning the child of the year award any time soon!

She gave birth to you.
She carried you for 9 months, endured the pains of labor and then spent many a sleepless night caring for you. The least you could do to thank her for all the sacrifices she made is to treat her to a margarita and Mexican food. Really though, she gave birth to you… so you should probably make that a pitcher!
