Re: “Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant

Public Health Alert. They served the wrong dinner and I had already began to eat it. They brought the correct dinner without notice and removed the original. I asked them to box it and they refused. Did they throw it away? I doubt that. They would certainly have boxed it rather than throw it away. Right? Think about it... That's GROSS - not to be trusted!

Re: “Cinco de Mayo

My girlfriend found a pebble in the salad. Was about the size of my thumbnail.

But that said, the service was excellent, they comped the meal, and the margaritas were pretty great. It's not the best in town for cheap, cosy tex-mex (for that, go to the restaurant between Church and West End), but it's good food at a reasonable price.

Their tamales were to die for. They even rivaled the ones from my favorite texmex place, which is saying something. The sauce on the tamale was so good and the outside was perfect. The steak fajitas were also really great, as well as the salsa. The only reason it's not 5 stars is the queso. It's okay, but nothing to write home about and I'm a queso fanatic so this was pretty disappointing for me. The prices and service have always, always been good, though.…

Re: “La Terraza

First of all I don't typically post negative reviews but after reading other comments about La Terraza on other sites, I feel compelled to share our experience. We have been there once before and didn't have a great experience but decided to give the place another try. Again, they were shorted staffed. We did have a table of 7 so we tried to be patient but we had to ask several times for water refills. One member in our party received their food after everyone else had already ate. Our waitress left and apparently didn't give our checks to anyone else. We waited an hour (no exaggeration) for our checks. After crappy service, subpar food, and a long wait for the checks, the so-called manager came to our table with a very unprofessional attitude. He insisted that we were lying about what we had, when clearly our plates were still in front of us and refusing to apologize for the poor service. No one wanted a free meal, all of us were plenty capable and willing to pay for our meal. When someone at our table stated that we would just appreciate an apology for our poor experience, the manager said, "that's not my problem" and asked us to leave. I really wish I was making this up but its the honest truth. Never again will they get our business.

Re: “Cinco de Mayo

My husband and I come here on a very regular basis. We love it! The service is always nice and attentive, and never have we had an issue with a bug or a hair. I would absolutely recommend this place and other locations to friends and foes. As "Stephanie" put it. lol. I recommend you give it a try and if you find a hair (I find mine all over the place) give them a chance to make it right. Do yourself a favor and have a great time all the time here.

Re: “Salsa Puerto Rican and Latin Cuisine

Incredible cuisine and and even better atmosphere. The live music was impressive, and a welcome respite from the usual Nashville honky tonk, vanilla noise.

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.
