Rosepepper, seemingly an institution by now in East Nashville (and nationally famous for its often-changed and always engaging marquee), is persistently popular and there must be reasons for that. From my recent experience, though, it isn't for the food. Standard Tex-Mex fare, not particularly well-prepared to the point of listless and unappetizing. The guac as an appetizer was fine and...

We happened upon this restaurant when walking around East Nashville on our first night in town. We were seated in the open air area of the restaurant on a beautiful fall night. I thought the waiter made a mistake when he brought my margarita-it was clear, not light green like usual. He explained that they made them like that-with no... More

This is one of the finest cantinas I have ever visited. The diverse menu, quality of food, generous portions, and cost-friendly prices are bar none. It is a bit off the grid but worth the drive out of the city. Parking is somewhat limited but can be found.

Tons of really good food and the best margaritas! One plate is enough for two. Try for happy hour to save a lot.

Had a delicious meal and margaritas on Saturday night! No wait for the 2 of us but bigger parties had a wait. Quick and friendly service. Strong, no mix, fresh poured 16 oz margaritas! Loved the small taco shells for the guac and sour cream.

While visiting my brother in Nashville, he suggested for Mexican food we go to Rosepeppers. The setting inside was interesting, but kinda cool. Neon lights, colorful art, beaded curtains hanging from the ceiling. We were slow to have someone come ask for drinks, should have been the first sign. We got chips and salsa a little bit after getting our... More

We sat on the patio, what a great venue. I had spinach enchiladas and tacos. It was really good. The chips were warm and crisp. I really liked the three salsas. My favorite was the tomatillo. And the margaritas! Very different. They are crystal clear and delicious. Can't wait for the next time!

A large group in town for business went to the Rosepepper on recommendation of our local guests. It is located in East Nashville, so a little out of the way if you are staying downtown or near the airport. We arrived around 7:30-8pm and were able to find street parking nearby. We were seated promptly. Our server was helpful with... More

The food was good; I had the enchiladas and tamale with a side of guacamole, and it was good, but not outstanding. We ate outside, and it was a bit noisy from traffic, so sit away from the street if you want to eat outside. The pitcher of beer is reasonably priced.

Love the enclosed patio area. THE food is consistent and good every time. Drinks are strong and great value
