Mexican Restaurant Taqueria Jalisco Opening 2nd Location

Thursday, February 27, 2014

Local Mexican restaurant Taqueria Jalisco is opening a second location in Miller Plaza this spring. With a thriving location on Chattanooga’s Southside, Taqueria Jalisco was looking for a space to further serve Chattanoogans with their authentic Mexican cuisine.

The restaurant will be located in Miller Plaza on the east corner bordering Cherry Street. Serving a similar menu as their Southside location, Taqueria Jalisco will be open to the lunch crowd along with select nights for dinner especially when the 2014 Nightfall Concert Series starts in May.

Operator of Taqueria Jalisco, Jorge Parra, said, “The second storefront came from demand. Our Southside location is small and we want to be able to serve everyone that wants to dine with us. This second location allows us to expand our service and keep the friendly and intimate atmosphere we and our customers enjoy.”

Jim Williamson, vice president of planning and development at River City Company which owns and operates Miller Plaza, said, “Taqueria Jalisco is the right tenant for the space. It’s a quality food choice that will bring people to the area and supports local business. Attracting this type of tenant is an integral part of making City Center a place people want to be round the clock.”

The opening is planned for late March to early April.

Lock Her Up? - And Response

This "lock her up" mob mentality is third world, over-the-edge behavior that has no place in a country based on the rule-of-law, where ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Our Double Travesties

Back when we were kids the old guys taught us how to throw a one-two punch. It’s pretty impressive if you do it right, which is to jab your left fist into the thug’s face and then, as though it was a symphony, complete the combination as you deliver a powerful right cross to the same nose. If the thug has a gun, it doesn’t work as well. But, boy, did our community ever get clobbered ... (click for more)
