LOOKING FOR good food at a good price?
The owners of Five 8 Burrito on Highway 58 (across from Brown Middle and Central High schools) will be celebrating the restaurant's second anniversary today from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., with customer specials offered throughout the day.
"We have a small, quaint and intimate restaurant," said Amber Greenwell, who co-owns the restaurant with her brother, Allen Greenwell. "With just a few employees, we are able to provide a personal experience for everyone. I know most of our regular customers by name, and we have a lot of them."
Menu items range from $1.58 for a taco to $7.58 for loaded nachos, Greenwell said.
"Traditional nachos is one of our most popular selections with rice, black beans, meat, lettuce, onion, tomato, salsa, sour cream and queso cheese on a bed of chips. We don't serve alcohol, so the atmosphere is very family-oriented. We have free tea every day from 2 to 5 p.m."
The siblings opened the restaurant in 2009.
"We have lots of vegetarian options on our menu, as well as kids meals. The restaurant has an eclectic atmosphere with concert, sports and Chattanooga memorabilia. We have some pretty cool autographs, too."
The restaurant offers daily specials including 50 percent off meals on Tuesday for customers who wear a "Five 8 Burrito" T-shirt (available for purchase at the restaurant), and more.
And for veterans dining at Five 8 Burrito this Saturday, your meals will be complimentary.
