Hello, Friends

Chattanooga Smoked BBQ

Little Coyote is Chef Erik Niel’s ode to smoked meats and tortillas – two things that stole his heart during his time living in Texas. Located in the St. Elmo neighborhood of Chattanooga, TN – right at the base of Lookout Mountain – we are excited to open our doors in the Fall of 2023.

The vibes are good, the drinks are cold, the smoker is lit, and the tortillas are fresh. We hope you’ll come hang with us for some Chattanooga Smoked BBQ.

3950 Tennesse Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37409

Little Coyote does not accept reservations.

Low and Slow

Slow and steady brings great taste

You can never rush perfection. At Little Coyote, we follow the time-honored Chattanooga Smoked BBQ tradition of low and slow. Our wood fire pit stays lit day and night to make our smoked meats more flavorful, delectable, and irresistible. With house-made corn tortillas, mouth-watering cuts of meat, authentic moles and condiments and agave spirits, Little Coyote embodies the spirit of the Southwest in every bite.
