    The 2 taco lunch special is highly suggested! I was wanting more fish with the fish taco, but loved the local BBQ taco. Loved the queso, it's not thick but it is tasty

    Chicken tinga enchiladas with mole or rojo are incredible. Also, the BBQ taco (withOUT cilantro) is great. Just tried the haddock and fried chicken tacos, and they are amazing. This place is 10/10!

    The drink with the elderflower isn't on the bar menu anymore, but the bartender will still make it for you. It's one of my favorite drinks!

    Fun, Americanized Mexican food with taco varieties like Southern Fried Chicken and Korean BBQ. I always enjoy having a margarita on the patio. Read more

    This place rules- the margaritas are good and I have tried most of the tacos. I recommended getting some "bang bang" sauce on the side if you like habanero

    Jimbo is the man! Margaritas are awesome! I like the enchiladas way more than the tacos! Chicken with verde, shrimp with lemon crema!

    One of my favorite places in Nashville. Can't go wrong with any of these tacos. Love their guacamole too.

    The shrimp tacos are amazing as are the Korean tacos or whatever they're called. I would have to say that the service lacks and they have no personalities!

    It's all local ingredients, and they make their own tater tots, so that's a treat. Read more

    Their fish tacos are the best around. The jalepenos top it off perfect. One of our favorites. If you are there for Sunday Brunch indulge yourself in one of their specials. Yum! Read more

    Even if you're more of an on-the-rocks margarita fan, try a frozen one here. I think they're made with magic. And maybe crack.

    Ask for the "Old Style" veggie tacos for sautéd veg and refried beans. Delish!
