Some people claim that heaven contains angels, clouds, and harps. While I have no opposition to any of those things, it is my hope that heaven will also contain a fantastic patio, margaritas, and tacos. Just in case it does not, I plan on taking full living advantage of the fact that Taco Mamacita offers all three (no death required!). Taco Mamacita is one of my favorite hang-out places once the weather hits tolerable outdoor dining temperatures. Their patio is lovely and shaded, so even when the sun hits its most delightfully brutal Southern stride, I can eat outside without fear of an "Irish tan." Though their drinks are a little light on the alcohol, the atmosphere more than makes up for potentially not being drunk. Now on to the food. I have never had a bad food experience at Taco Mamacita. Let's start with the basics: tacos. But a taco can be so much more than basic, and the Mamacita does everything possible to ensure that you are aware of just how non-basic tacos can be. Go for their $8.95 deal and get two tacos from their diverse selection, plus a side. Highly recommended are the Korean pork tacos and the royal taco grande. Haven't found that the Caribbean jerk tacos were my favorites, but that may just be a matter of taste. If you are not in the mood for tacos, or on some terrible low-carb diet, the next stop on the menu is the Peruvian chicken, which is possibly the most moist, tender chicken I have ever encountered. If you can tear your eyes away from the taco menu, this is also a highly recommended choice. Moral of the story: If you are looking for harps, clouds, and other angelic totems, Taco Mamacita is probably not going to work for you. If you are fine with margaritas, moist chicken, and a damn fine patio, stop on in.

Sukho Thai is a small family owned restaurant near the Opryland Hotel. The family is from Laos and they know Thai cooking. They offer a large selection of dishes from appetizers to beef, pork, poulty, curry, and seafood dishes. My wife and I eat at Sukho Thai at least 4-5 times a month. We have never been dissapointed with the food or the service. Their food is fresh, well prepared, and bargain priced. Lunch is a real bargain and the restaurante is quite busy at lunch with many of the locals who work in or around the area. They also serve wine and beer and bargain prices. The restaurant is located next to the go kart track and does not look like much from the outside, but the inside is clean and nicely decorated. You can order your food with any level of heat or spiceness, including Thai hot, which is hot. I have seen other reviews that are very positive and one reviewer who things people from Laos cannot cook Thai food. This is absurd. That is like saying an Amercian trained chef cannot cook Italian food. If you are in the area you owe it to yourself to try Sukho Thai. Great for couples and families as well.
The impeccable customer service is where this place really shines. I have a dairy allergy and the first time I ate here the manager came out to let me know they have a separate station for cooking for allergies to avoid any cross contamination. On a separate occasion a friend was doing a very strict no processed food challenge and again, management came to the table and spent a long time with her understanding her needs and helping her pick a meal. In all honesty, without the above and beyond service, this place is more like 3 stars. The food is pretty health conscience, creative, and affordable. The execution and taste is a little above average. The decor is fun and "hip" and it's a nice environment for a relaxed dinner with friends or a casual date. It can be hard to get a table here during dinner hour sometimes and other times you can walk right in but that's most decent places in Nashville. When it's busy the inside gets a bit loud so I would recommend outside seating when it's warm enough. Overall this place has wonderful service, good/affordable food, and a nice atmosphere.
When the blizzard of '15 hit, CPK didn't fail to disappoint, merely by being open. So, pro #1: Opens when it snows. Not a positive to be taken lightly in Nashville. Other positives: # 2. Delicious gluten-free pizza, complete with a little wooden gluten-free flag of isolation ("Oh. I guess you won't be trading pizza slices"). # 3. Decent portion sizes. I don't feel like they are trying to feed the small nation that I have apparently hidden under the table, but I don't leave hungry, either. #4. Fresh and tasty food. I ordered the gluten-free pepperoni pizza. While no gluten-free pizza will ever be quite as delightful as gluten-plus pizza, this was hot, crispy, and tasted a lot like pizza. Can't argue with that. For people who prefer to be unhappy, there are also quinoa salads and other vaguely healthy options. While I do find the food here to be a little pricey for what you get, it is not a completely unreasonable deal. Especially when they are the only place open in a five-mile radius on a mildly snowy evening.
I like tacos as much as the next girl. Possibly more so, given the two years I have spent living with lovable, taco-obsessed lunatics. And I particularly like places that have been acclaimed by the hipster community as serving exceptional food, because, in my experience, hipsters' skinny jeans tend to belie the hidden fatties that lurk beneath. Hipsters know their food. However, in this instance, a love of a dingy appearance in a gentrifying neighborhood seems to have led my hipster food gurus astray, because I truly found nothing special about Mas Tacos. The lines were long, the tacos were fine, and the fineness of the tacos in no way made up for the length of the lines. The tortilla soup was fabulous, but the pulled pork and tilapia tacos were nothing memorable (as in, looking back, I am not even sure I remember if those were the tacos I got). Skip the lines and head to Cinqo de Mayo or any of the taco trucks in Antioch.
I am not a taco purist. Forget a taco devoid of fixings, so I can enjoy the pure flavor of tortilla and meat; I want to drown in a fatty mixture of cheese, guacamole, and then probably some queso sauce. So I was HIGHLY skeptical when I saw that the tacos at BarTaco come plain and unadorned (and this after waiting in line for 40 minutes to get a table!). And I was right to be skeptical, as somewhat dry chorizo without fixings is not worth the $2.50 charged. HOWEVER. And this is a big however. The Baja Fish Taco comes with the most amazing chipotle crema I have ever had in my life. JUST ORDER THE BAJA FISH TACO. And then order it again, for the most deliciously creamy face-gasm you will ever experience in a taco. The guacamole is also worth a taste, though it is a little pricey ($9 for a large order). But regardless of what you do at BarTaco, I cannot emphasize this enough: Order the Baja Fish Taco.
This is one of my favorite Mexican restaurants of all time. Start with their drink specials: Sunday-Tuesday, pitchers of (very strong) margarita are $10.99 all day long. They have fantastic drink specials every day of the week, and, unlike a lot of Mexican restaurants, never skimp on the alcohol. There food is delicious, and affordably priced. An order of fajitas that includes generous helpings of steak, chicken, and shrimp is $13.25, and though the menu lists these fajitas as being a "single order," there has always been enough for both I and my boyfriend. Oftentimes, we have even had some to take home! We have tried pretty much everything in this place, and experienced the same consistently high quality. My only (mild) complaint about this place is that the salsa is just okay. It is not very spicy, and somewhat watery. However, the quality of the rest of the food more than makes up for it.
Found Jet's Pizza on a 'rush' day out of the grocery store, and it's been a love affair ever since! It's the 8-Corner Pizza I keep coming back for! For those who like the thickness of a Pan Pizza, but miss the crust in such a large item, THIS is the ultimate solution for Crust-Mongers! The Dough is not heavy like lead - but it doesn't have the yeasty after-taste of most Sicilian Pizzas. And Everyone gets a corner! The sauce is a little sweet for hard core Italians, but the distinct flavor of basil is in there, so all is forgiven! I moved from Cane Ridge to Madison, and Jet's used to be just a few minutes from my previous home ...now it's a 20 minute drive to this location - but worth every second of the drive!
I dont know about the double charge, but the other guy seems to think that he is a food critic ( read his reviews). I on the other hand seem to think that the pizza I tried last night was amazing. Casein f.y.i. is 3/4 of the protein in all dairy products. As far as sauce being acidic, correct sir most fruits do have an acidic pH. The girl on the phone did seem new, but my experience was very good. The pizza was done before I got there, but I love being able to open up the box and have steam pour out. The pizza was well cooked, and I would definately reccomend this to anyone looking for a change from the normal card board people have grown accustomed to.
