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: “Hot Diggity Dogs

They serve top quality dogs including polish and vegterian, grilled or steamed on a white or wheat bun (your choice). The kraut on the New York dog is very good and the Chicago dog is the real deal, including the sport peppers, tomato wedge, pickle slice, bright green relish, and cucumber salt. The fries are KILLER; They are perfectly cooked in peanut oil, and more than you can eat are stuffed into the brown paper bag in which they are served. The building is tiny, with a few stools and a small bar along one wall. It's usually crowded so you probably won't want to eat inside, but you can, especially if you are willing to eat standing. Don't worry, there are picnic tables on the covered deck which has roll-up canvas sides to keep the wind and sun at bay, and the food tastes great no matter where you eat it.

Re: “Mitchell Delicatessen

I live in S.C.,travel alot, my husband and I agree that Mitchell's Deli is a five star. Breakfast is great also. Would not change a thing! I always buy dozen strips of cooked Benton's Bacon to take back home with us. The staff has never been nothing but polite to all of us including lots of friends that live in East Nashville. Believe me you would know if rude was an issue. We are their at least once a month for 3 or 4 days. We eat there at least 3 times each visit and we get the turkey avocoda to go to eat on our 8 hour travel back to South Carolina. Would love to have a Mitchell's Deli where we live. East Nashville is BLESSED. :-) The Branhams.

Re: “Sambuca

We got married this year at Sambuca and brought our own priest, family, and friends. The staff and special indoor accomodations were perfect. Everyone enjoyed their delicious meals and drinks on the patio afterwards. I have been to Sambuca many times before and have always had a great experience. Glad that my wife and guests had a good time. Fun times... see you guys soon!

Re: “Ri'Chard's Louisiana Cafe

I went on a Sunday morning and couldn't have been more disappointed. The place was still showing signs of the night before. I ordered eggs benedict and got a combination of a cold, dry english muffin, cold ham, something that resembled an processed egg product, flat and tasteless, and topped with a congealed sauce. We were told immediately that they were out of jambalaya and shrimp although others around us were ordering shrimp. I think the community night life and cajun food is probably acceptable and maybe even good, but we we won't go back to find out. I got the impression that because of their reputation, our meal- or lack of, just didn't count. We were charged full price though we didn't eat it. Sorry patrons.

Re: “Mary's Old Fashioned Pit Barbecue

Got a groupon for this place.... got bbq plate w/ beans and slaw... my beans had a hair them....right from the start. Slaw wasn't all that good either. It was hot in the dining room, and the tables felt greasy to the touch, and it smelled dirty in there too. Not mention this place is in the GHETTO !!

Re: “Raz'z Jazz Bar and Grill

I have been eating here since he opened his first site on Murfreesboro road and have continued to support him with his Smyrna site. However, after last night I will not visit either site again. I had the worst experience I have had up to date, from this restaurant (Murf. Road) or any restaurant for that matter.

I took my mom out for a Mother's day dinner, where I have taken her many, many years before since the food and service was always outstanding here. We arrived at 6:05, got seated. No one took our drink order, addressed us, acknowledged us until 6:14 - I was ready to leave, but my mom wanted to stay - I couldn't get anyone's attention to ask for our server. Our server was somehow medicated, not sure by what, but her speech and eyes were not normal. She took our order, we got our drinks, salad and bread. She then "verified" what we had ordered (she had written down, but couldn't read her writing).

The table behind was trying to tackle their server also, but their service was great compared to ours.

At 6:45 I went to the bar and asked to speak with a manager (1st time I requested a manager), the bartender assured me our food was coming.

At 6:50, here comes our food. My mom's order was correct, however, mine was no where near what I ordered - even after writing it down and verifying again. We were told mine was on it's way.

So, my mom ate and at 7:15 here came my food - my mom was done - they never told me it had to be cooked, never checked on me from 6:50 to 7:15. I asked four waitresses, including the bartender, for a manger 7 times. I was told Razz's wife was in the back and that was the only manager there. I never saw anyone except the bartender. No manager even attempted to come by our table.

She brought out my food - which I had requested to be cancelled 25 mins prior. She offered to take my portion off the bill. I told her I did not expect to pay for anything since I did not get to have dinner with my mother, on mother's day. I did not end up paying, but I think that is because I was getting louder with my frustration and they wanted me out of there.

This did not seem to be an "off" night to me. I know that Razz's brother was in the kitchen, I saw him. It is very sad that we were treated like this, from a place that I have visited since it opened. The last few times I ate at the Smyrna location, the service and food was also off - not to this degree, but enough to be noticed. I would say I eat here about once or twice every three months.

If you hit it on a good night, I'm sure it's good. I just wont be going back to either location to find that good night. It is a Mother's day that will not be forgotten - that's for sure.

Re: “Sopapilla’s: A Taste of New Mexico

I am a native New Mexican that has found my way here to Nashville. I must say that their enchiladas are the closest to home that I have found since leaving New Mexico. Only thing I would add is that they need to serve the sopapilla's with the meal, not after it. They are used like a bread roll out west. Fantastic food!

Re: “Lemongrass Sushi & Thai


I placed a pick up order for lunch- 2 orders of shrimp pad thai. I picked up my order and went home to eat but while eating my meal I noticed that there were only 2 pieces of shrimp in my entire order. I was VERY disappointed in the fact that I was charged an additional $2 for shrimp and yet I only received 2 shrimp. I called the restaurant to speak to a manager to make a complaint about the amount of shrimp that I received in my order but instead of assisting me and acknowledging the issue, the manager proceeded to tell me that it was "impossible" for there to have only been 2 shrimp. Despite my attempts to explain to her that I had in fact counted and confirmed the existence of only 2 shrimp, she denied the possibility that more had not been included. She essentially called me a liar and refused to admit any fault. I live down the street from the restaurant and I have been there on several occasions. I have even recommended the restaurant to several of my friends. I will personally be telling EVERYONE I know about this horrible experience and I will recommend that no one eat there in the future. I have never received such horrible customer service and I can think of better businesses in the area that will appreciate my money.

Re: “Nero's Grill

I am using the recipe for Nero's Famous Scalded Corn Cakes today with my fish. I have used this recipe since in came out in the February 1976 issue of Ford Times magazine. My husband found the recipe and suggested that we try it since he doesn't eat hushpuppies. We live in middle Georgia and have never been to the restaurant in Nashville but love the corn cakes.

Re: “Bluebird Cafe

I personally know of how open mic sessions 'round town do provide a plattaform for the common songwriter to get his/her songs to an audience, a great oportunity to polish your act onstage, with lighting and a pa system, a chance to find other talented musicians to put together a band or other songwriters for collaborations. While other local musicians do not share my point of view, they complain about how venues have found a way to provide free entertainment for their clientele thru either jam sesions or open mic sessions, many of them places requiring that attendees, songwriters or not, do consume food or drinks while on their premises, they complain about the non-existence of a legitimate audience (since most of the open mic sessions are comprised mainly of other songwriters performing their material and leaving soon after) also mentioning the possibility that legit music industry representatives from major labels being there to discover them is next to zero... I still think is a great way to get your music out there without the need of a press & media kit or any of the complicated process bands go to get a gig at any local venue!
