Mojo Burrito in Chattanooga, Tennessee

Mojo Burrito is a local Tex-Mex restaurant with three locations in the Chattanooga, Tennessee area. Mojo Burrito is akin to the chains like Chipotle and Moe’s Southwest Grill, but much better, in my opinion. The St. Elmo neighborhood location is my favorite.

Mitchell Deli in Nashville

After only one trip to Mitchell Delicatessen in East Nashville, TN I am hooked. There are so many things to like about it that I hardly know where to begin. This place is not exactly on the tourist beaten path, which I think is a very good thing. It seems to emphasize quality and local […]
