Opening Tuesday: Mas Tacos Por Favor, The Restaurant!

Posted By on Mon, Jul 26, 2010 at 6:36 AM

Bitesters and East Nashvillians alike were foaming at the boca a couple of weeks ago when news got out that Mas Tacos Por Favor, the beloved roving taco business run out of a converted ’70s Winnebago, would be opening a genuine brick-and-mortar shop at 732 McFerrin Ave., across from Holland House.

After a couple of soft openings, which a certain Bites correspondent was privileged to attend, the store is ready to go, and will officially open for business Tuesday, July 27. Proprietor Teresa Mason has done a charming makeover of the small space, imparting a delightfully rustic vibe that suggests a taco shack you might encounter in a small Mexican village — if that Mexican village also happened to be home to one of the hippest old-school jukeboxes in the Western Hemisphere.

We indulged in some delicious fried tilapia tacos at last week's dry run, and were knocked out by an experience at the Winnebago a few weeks back that included some spectacular elotes ( Mexican grilled corn on the cob with cotija cheese and fresh-squeezed lime) and the best chicken tacos we've ever had. With fresh corn season about to peak, here's hoping the elotes pop up on the new shop's ever-changing menu, which will eventually include new items that were too labor-intensive to make in the mobile unit.

To start, Mas Tacos will be open 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday through Friday. Mason is tied up taking the Winnebago to weddings and such for the next few weekends, but when the party season slows down, weekend hours will likely be added.
