Re: “Cinco de Mayo

A Bug was in our Margarita Pitcher tonight (02/15/14) at Cinco De Mayo at the 358 White Bridge Road location. I had never eaten here before and my friend from work wanted to go out and suggested that we go here. Mind you this was not her first choice but I wanted to try to check out the NBA All-Star game and figure this would be a good place since she had been here and their other locations before. Never again would I come to a place where there was hair in my food, mediocre service, and bugs in the ice/drinks. I was so shocked, disgusted, and embarrassed. I have never had anything of the sort happen to me ever! Not even at a fast food place! The manager of this establishment thought it was funny and laughed at the situation! I would not recommend this place or any of their other locations to anybody; friend or foe. The manager acted poorly and was very disrespectful about the situation. He did not represent this company in a good light and did not offer an apology.

Re: “Back To Cuba Cafe

I recently got indulge at this little coffe shop with a great authentic cuban taste on the food, price is fair for what it is, a tasty and generous portions, cuban sandwich and medias noches are amazing, friut milkshakes are awesome as well. Empanadas on special at $1, crockets, and papa rellena (stuffed potato) only 1.50!
Now the best probably is the cuban coffee (like a espresso type of coffee) and the pastries and desserts mhmhmh, arroz con leche also.
As far as I knew, there are two rules at Back To Cuba Cafe, rule one, you should order as it reads on the menu (on spanish) and two, no texting while you eating... really?
Well, I kind of got clarify that they suggest and support no to text while you eating, not meaning not texting at the table, only while you eating and got your sacred food (a latin cultural tradition it seems like) but also the enviroment is friendly and not big deal about it, they took care well of our table and the patrons around while I was there.

Definetly I would recommend this little and unique cafe, food and table experience are good!

Re: “Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant

The food was great but they need to watch their language in Spanish. They need to realize that other people speak Spanish as well. I was very offended by the language they used.

Re: “Los Arcos

For Mexican Food by far this is my favorite spot in Nashville.
Service is great, food is delicious, and the decor breath taking. I took my mom for her birthday, they went out of their way to make her a fresh made margarita instead of serving her a house made with cheap tequila that only gives you a headache. I was impressed, that little detail has me going back at least once a month.

Re: “Nuvo Burrito

Simply the best. And not just if you like burritos, because these aren't your typical burritos. My only complaint, there's not one in the Detroit area :-(

Re: “Lime [Closed]

Closed. Nashville couldn't appreciate it. This place was fabulous - The coktails were inventive and tasty, and the tapas style food was excellent (never tried the entrees, so I can't speak for those). Sorry to see it go.

Re: “La Hacienda Taqueria

A great reastaurant. You can get some Americanized dishes and some more authentic stuff. Try anything, I have never been disappointed. I do have two suggestions:

1) If you like chorizo, you have to try theirs, it is top notch!

2) If you are into really hot sauce, ask for the home-made habenero sauce to put on your tacos or on whatever else you like. They bring it out of the cooler in a big yellow squeeze bottle. It tastes great, but it's really hot. By comparison, if you can eat the El Yucateco brand Salsa Kutbil-Ik, you can handle this stuff.

In conclusion, I eat here all the time, I am addicted. It's that good.

Re: “Jim's Nachos [Closed]

Jim's Nacho's is no longer at 4002 Granny White Pike. The new shop that opened there is EL Melino's. They serve Mexican food with a smile and are very nice. Service is excellent!!

Re: “Back To Cuba Cafe

This hole-in-the-wall place is AMAZING! Always packed with people, and always clean. Bring your own beer or wine. The food is reasonably priced and the plantains are cooked to perfection. Tastes like REAL Cuban food, i highly recommend this place.

Re: “Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant

My friends and I frequent this place almost once a week. The chips and salsa are some of the best around, and this restaurant embodies everything a Mexican restaurant should be: the prices are low, the portions are large, and the food is good.

Re: “Bombasha

Great atmosphere! From beginning to end surprisingly superb customer service! Definitely worth a try ~ when you go be sure to try the signature drinks, the bartender was knowledgeable and friendly! Loved the sangria, it was a treat for the eyes and the palate! Food was wonderful fresh, crisp salad items galore, and the meats.....there are not enough words to describe!

Re: “Las Palmas

Yes, it's Americanized Mexican food. The four stars are for the margaritas and the ultra-rare offering of Mole Poblano. The margaritas are strong and the Mole Poblano, while sweet, offers an excellent peak into traditional Mexican fare.

Re: “La Hacienda Taqueria

Let's see where do I start?! Huge fan of the margaritas especially the strawberry one!!! Pair it with an order of fish tacos and rice or their enchiladas and I swear you'll be coming back for more... This is literally the only Mexican restaurant you can go to where they the food to your liking. The waiter and waitresses are super polite and it's great environment to bring family and friends. The cherry on the top is the fact that you can go next door and purchase the fresh tortillas that you just finished devouring a couple of minutes ago!!! Two thumbs up La Ha!!!

Re: “The Chile Burrito Co.

I love this place! I eat lunch here at least once a week and they have consistently good food every time. You will not leave hungry or poor, as the food is all fresh plentiful and well priced.

Re: “The Chile Burrito Co.

This establishment would not be one of my favorite places to eat Mexican. I would much rather go to Q'doba's. It was pricey and not great at all. I ordered a chicken queasdilla. Very disappointing. I will never go again.

Re: “Fiesta Azteca

I have been to the Fiesta Azteca twice now. The first time was not that memorable other than the long wait before being seated. It was not busy at the time, so there wasn't much of an excuse. But despite that, we thought we would give it one more try. That was a horrible mistake. It took a LONG time to get seated. once we were seated we were brought chips and salsa and finally drinks. Then the waitress disappeared. No refills on everything, just waiting...

When the waitress did re-appear we had to ask for everything and was only brought a portion of what we asked for. I had to ask three times for a salsa refill. By the way, the salsa has a strange flavor and is very hot, so if you dare eat any be sure that you have plenty of water, which in my case I didn't.

Four of us were brough fajitas without the tortillas, which came about t minutes later so the food was nice and cold before we could start eating. One person in our party did not get his food with everybody else's because they apparently forgot his order.

There are too many restaruants in the area to choose from that are far better than this place and comparable in price. Don't waste your time here. But if you do plan to take the risk on the Fiesta Azteca, be sure to bring a couple bottles of water and a jar of Old El Paso with you.

Re: “Sol [Closed]

The food and service were great. This isn't the usual formula Mexican food found in national or local chains. The menu is well thought out and it all works with an upscale twist. Don't miss the Pollo Relleno.
