If you read the reviews of this place on Urbanspoon, you would think that is is a Mexican food paradise! Maybe I went on an “off” day or something, but I wasn’t terribly impressed.
Maybe I am too much of a food snob-especially Mexican food, since I work in Dalton, GA where there are TONS of good authentic Mexican places. I had a combination plate with one of the items a “tamale” . I was not impressed with any of the items and my enchilada was barely above your average Tex-Mex place that are so popular around here.
Having said all this, I am willing to give it another chance-but if you are a food snob like me, prepare to be underwhelmed.

I have but three words for this place” muy buena comida”. If my Spanish is correct this means very good food. Hands down this is the best Mexican I have ever had around here, and that includes Dalton, Ga. Best guacamole anywhere!!I consider myself a tamale expert and Taco Roc nailed it with the tamales. My mother and I both ate there for less than $15 and both walked away with a smile and a full belly. I could go on and on about this place but I will sum it up with simply saying” Vive laTaco Roc”
As a food snob AND a regular visitor to Mexico City I can testify that Taco Roc is both very good and very authentic! Me gusta Taco Roc!
What is the best Mexican restaurant between Chattanooga and Dalton, in your opinion?
I am a self-professed food snob too, and I have been woefully disappointed with the Mexican restaurants in Chattanooga… until I ate at Taco Roc. Taco Roc is by far the most authentic and freshest Mexican in Chattanooga. Good job!!
