Hole-in-the-wall restaurant you don't want to miss. Came for a late lunch w/our boys. Be sure to have a margarita, guacamole, and fish tacos. You won't be disappointed. Great atmosphere as well. Very small. Loved it!

La Altena in downtown Chattanooga does not draw their clientele in by the facade of their location. The great food at a good price with attentive service keeps their customers coming back for more. We have eaten at La Altena for a few years now and are never disappointed. Is it fine dining or have dazzling ambience? The answer is no but it is really well prepared food in a friendly and fun atmosphere at a good price.
The guacamole is fresh and we have never ordered an entree that we didn't truly enjoy. Our visit this past week was the usual good food and fast friendly service. Give it a try and don't let the appearance outside put you off of having a good meal.

This was an awesome find on Tripadvisor. It was right down the street from our hotel. The atmosphere was great and the food even better. I had the Fajita Guadalajara and it was great. The service left something to be desired but the food is worth going there for.

This is a restaurant I never would've found if not for a site like TripAdvisor. It was a great change of pace from chains and chicken fingers (traveling with 9 yr-old). The three of us ate for under $20, and I really enjoyed the fish tacos. Would definitely recommend for a family on vacation in downtown Chattanooga.
