Armando’s | Cheeseburgers & Catfish Suppers | Chattanooga

Review by:

Out East Main Street

For cheeseburgers and catfish suppers in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Armando’s is the place to go. Looking at it from the outside, you might guess it once was a banquet hall or wedding venue. Under a mini port cochere with a mansard roof, an old but not vintage Cadillac sits for sale. Its muffler dangles. Seasons of pollen and dust cloud its windows.

Inside, there is nothing derelict about the dimly-lit, windowless dining area. In this neat, modest eat-place, you step to the counter, place an order and pay. They give you a number, which you take to your chosen booth or table. A member of the staff brings the food.

Bacon Cheeseburgers and Catfish Suppers

Most customers come for burgers, bacon cheeseburgers in particular. The menu guarantees that the meat is “100% pure ground beef delivered fresh daily.” The patties themselves are relatively thin, but they form the basis of a teetering architectural marvel with so many garnishes that even the most capacious jaws will find it a challenge. A schmear of mayonnaise serves as the burger’s cushion in its bun. Atop the meat rests a square of American cheese. Atop the cheese come three strips of bacon, a slice of onion as thick as the burger itself, a few pickles, slices of tomato, and a leaf or two of lettuce. It is a beautiful thing and a joy to devour, whichever parts of it fit in your mouth in any one bite.

One other dish lures customer’s to Amando’s: catfish. The hefty fillets boast flesh sweet as cream encased in shattering-crisp, brightly seasoned crust. On a plate with Tater Tots and fried okra, it’s a fry-basket treasure.

Menu Choices

Beyond cheeseburgers and catfish suppers, Armando’s menu is a broad one. Choose from among multi-layer grilled cheese sandwiches, Reubens, Philly steaks, and chili slaw dogs. You can have a stuffed baked potato or even choose a salubrious salad from a section of the menu headlined “Lite Side.”
