Southern Burger Company S

outhern Burger Company began as one of Chattanooga’s first food trucks. Within the past year, SBC has cemented a spot at Warehouse Row, providing a go-to lunch spot for downtown individuals hungry for a bountiful burger. From the beginning, SBC has oriented their goals to inspire a sense of home, infusing value and amazing flavor into meals, cultivating change, and focusing on quality. With a look at Southern Burger’s devoted regulars and great wordof-mouth reputation, it’s easy to assume they keep their word. While their focus is a single favorite meal, the burger, they offer the staple dish in an assortment of preparations. Whether beef, pork, veggie, or however else fits your fancy, you can expect that the Southern Burger Company is making it from fresh fare gathered from local and regional farmers and bakers. Several Chattanooga restaurants belt

the jalapeño burger, exhibits the attention to detail of every ingredient. Crispy, sea-salted fries and onion rings add to

each menu item, and homemade sauces bring the flavor home. In addition to the Mayoli, Southern Burger has many more house-made options for dipping, including Buttermilk Ranch and Bleu CheeseJalapeño, an astoundingly creative blend of tang and heat. If you can’t make it to Warehouse Row, have no fear—Southern Burger Company’s truck is still making the rounds in Hamilton County for lunch and special events (look for them at Chattanooga Market and Nightfall this year). If you see them out and about, be sure to stop by as quick as you can—it’s not a rare occurrence for them to sell out on any given day. If you want to see when they’ll be in your area, you can check their oftupdated Facebook page to get the skinny. You can even book the truck for your special event—it’s hard to imagine a better option for a large get-together or a pool party. Whether you catch their highly modified 20-foot, Fed-Ex look-a-like food truck out about town, or you favor an inhouse visit to their counter-clad location at Warehouse Row, you will be delighted in the difference Southern Burger Company offers to the traditional burger.


The Terminal Brewhouse I

f you are standing at the corner of Market and 14th Streets, an oddly shaped brick edifice will catch your eye. The Terminal Brewhouse uses this historic space to bring their vision of craft beer and crafty food to Chattanooga. Look inside and you will find a roomy period piece that exemplifies the word brewpub. The food is unique, delicious and is priced to keep you coming back for more. The menu is somewhere between gastro pub and comfort food. The Terminal guys

believe that the kitchen is the heart of the brewpub and the food is a representation of the level of dedication they have to culinary expression. Each item is as important as the next, from the house salad filled with local greens to the pepper smashed steak revered for its incredible value. Just as the kitchen is the heart of the brewpub, the brewery itself is the soul of the place. The Terminal offers four craft beers brewed in-house year round,

and two rotating taps. One is a seasonal beer that changes with the weather (or the brewer’s whim) and the other is one of three of their favorite session beers that they alternate to keep the tap fresh. Whether you want a great, easy-to-drink beer like White Shadow Belgian Wit, or prefer a dark treat like the Southsidenstein Stout, you will find a reason to have another pint. Or if you can’t stay, grab a growler and take some home. Stop by for lunch, dinner or check out the Terminal’s late-night happy hour from 10 p.m. to midnight every Sunday through Thursday. You are guaranteed to find some of your friends and neighbors there.

The Scoop

The Terminal has First Firkin Tuesday on the first Tuesday of every month for real ale lovers out there. Terminal Brewhouse 6 E. 14th St. (423) 752-8090 terminalbrewhouse.com

BISTRO & BAR $7 BURGER & BEEREVERY DAY

WEDNESDAYS50 DRUMMIES & 1/2 PRICE DRAFTS $5 CHEESE PLATE 1/2 OFF BOTTLES OF WINE

O

nly five minutes from downtown, Blacksmith’s Bistro & Bar is the coziest eatery on this side of the mountain. There are subtle hints of the olden days of blacksmiths, hence the rooster as their logo, with rooster decorations scattered about the restaurant. There’s always room to park at the bistro, and they’re known for the best burgers and brunch in town. The married couple Blackwell and Kelly Smith own and operate the restaurant, with Blackwell doubling as the head chef of the kitchen. Although he was raised in Chattanooga, Chef Blackwell went to culinary school in Baton Rouge, La., so there is definitely a noticeable Cajun flare to his food. They have all the traditional American comfort foods, and they are all

made from scratch, focusing on local ingredients. Every day, Blacksmith’s Bistro & Bar offers food specials that are to die for. “They’re kind of above and beyond what you find on the regular menu,” said Kelly Smith. Other specials include halfprice draft beer and 50-cent drumsticks on Wednesdays and half-price wine on Thursdays. This has got to be St. Elmo and Lookout Mountain’s most comfortable neighborhood restaurant.

Amazing food, amazing drinks, all at the base of America’s most amazing mile!

La Alteña Authentic Mexican Food T

he small, unassuming Main Street establishment La Alteña has been Chattanooga’s favorite Mexican restaurant since its opening. Its proximity to downtown, and the simple décor draws locals, students and visitors alike. And whether it’s the warm greeting received upon entering, or the cuisine catered from the kitchen, something about this place yields an authenticity unlike anywhere else in town. Though the downtown location is the original, La Alteña boasts the largest of its restaurants, also the newest, in Hixson (at Northgate Mall). This location celebrates its one year anniversary on May 4, and the celebration continues through the next day with Cinco de Mayo, when La Alteña heightens the excitement with food and drink specials and live music to adjoin the festivities. Some patrons may come for the complimentary chips and salsa that come with any purchase, but true restaurant goers know to stay for the authentic flavor found within each entrée. Steaming fajitas hot off the grill or carnitas engrossed in green salsa are excellent choices to match the wide selection of drinks. With 20 beers on draft, 28 bottle beers, and margaritas to enliven any evening, consider your thirst quenched.

The Scoop

Daily specials delivered with attentive service and affordable prices, great beer selections and a great place to watch sports and listen to live music.
