Community Pie

Located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga’s Central Business District, Community Pie is bringing both Neapolitan and New York Style pizzas to the South. The dough is made fresh on site, the pizzas are cooked in wood-fire ovens that were brought in from Italy, and the sauce is spiced well, with a bit of a bite. Tip: a bowl of the sauce comes with the garlic roll appetizer, or you can just ask your server for some to dip your pizza crusts in. Speaking of pizza crusts, Community Pie pizzas are all thin crust, crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside, just the way it’s done in both New York and Italy.

Taco Mamacita

This unique Mexican restaurant is located in a non-descript shopping center on North Market Street on the Northshore of Chattanooga. There are gluten-free and vegan menus available, with tweaked versions of many of the regular menu options; just ask for the separate menu. Taco Mamacita makes everything fresh, so they aren’t afraid of special requests.

High Point Climbing and Fitness

If climbing the mountains around Chattanooga is a bit too far out of your comfort zone, High Point Climbing and Fitness offers 28,000 square feet of climbing – both inside and outside. There’s nothing like climbing on the glass-like wall outside, with cars driving past, right underneath you. At night, it’s an entirely different experience outside!

Urban Stack

In Downtown Chattanooga’s hip Southside district, Urban Stack is a modern take on the classic burger joint. Located in a former Southern Railway building, the interior atmosphere is relaxed and casual, and the patio seating is perfect for those warm summer nights. Yes, it’s mostly burgers on the menu, but with topping options like fried green tomatoes, fried salami, chorizo, and their ought-to-be-famous-by-now chipotle ketchup, the food is anything but boring – and there are healthy options, too!
