Hispanic Heritage Month

September 12, 2023

National Hispanic Heritage Month, celebrated annually from September 15th through October 15th is a time to honor and recognize contributions made by Hispanics in the United States and the diversity of Latin American cultures that make up the Hispanic population in our nation today.

Chattanooga has a large Hispanic population, which presents us with many opportunities to experience the culture. It is time to celebrate Hispanic heritage and its contribution to our country through culture, food, art, music, and community service projects across the United States.

Celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month by supporting local Hispanic and Latino-owned businesses in Chattanooga or tasting delicious Latin food.


Conga Latin Food

It isn’t your typical Mexican restaurant, where you have chips and salsa with a burrito along with rice and beans. It’s so much more. They serve traditional Latin food. It is a family-owned restaurant, the founder of which even gained recognition as “The woman who brought Pupusas to Chattanooga”. The food here is always fresh, mouthwatering, traditional, and cooked to order.

Mayan Kitchen

Mayan Kitchen is essentially a nicer-than-average Mexican restaurant with a focus on tequila flights and the Mayan theme. Try yourself new up-scale Latin-American Cuisine and Tequila Bar downtown. Authentic quality, incredible taste.

Mezcla Cocina Y Cantina

Mezcla is a chef-driven kitchen & bar with a fresh take on modern Mexican cuisine and drinks in a unique environment. With made-from-scratch food and drink delicacies, you can enjoy a quick lunch break, a romantic and exciting evening, or a unique experience the whole family will remember.

Taqueria Jalisco

Taqueria Jalisco started in 2005 in a small red food truck on the Southside of Chattanooga. The Parra family has expanded slowly over the years into a storefront at Miller Plaza in Chattanooga city center and a full-service Tequila & Mezcal bar in Southside where it all began.
