Established in June 2015, Chatter Box Cafe was founded as an extension of Brandon Ellis’s love of food and feeding his community. To offer the freshest options available, the Chatter Box menu is always evolving but one staple that’ll never leave: slow cooked meats.

Beginning Friday, Chatter Box is celebrating a grand opening.

“It’s amazing to see how Chatter Box has grown from street to storefront in the last 18 months. I am excited about finally opening a Southside storefront and celebrating all weekend,” said Brandon Ellis, founder of Chatter Box Cafe and Local Loyalty App.

Chatter Box’s Grand Opening weekend kicks off on Friday, at the U.S. Men’s National Team vs. Jamaica soccer game at Finley Stadium from 12-3 p.m. Saturday’s double header begins at the new location 1817 Market Street starting at 12-5 p.m., and includes a complimentary beer from Chattanooga Brewing Company with the purchase of a meal. Next, meet Chatter Box in the Neural Passageway on Broad Street for a plate of barbeque before the Dave Chappelle Show from 6:30- 10:30 p.m. The final event of the weekend is a Super Bowl Pick up from 1-6 p.m. to grab last minute eats and a complimentary beer tasting by Oh Big Frog Brewing before you watch the Patriots take on the Falcons while supplies last.

Officials said, "From farm to fender, Chatter Box Cafe is the best stop for barbeque seasoned to perfection."
