This place has been around for quite some time. It was our first visit, when we walked in only a few people were at the bar. The service was prompt. However, the server never came back to ask how our food was. I think that's a key to serving. When I go for Mexican, a huge part of its success... More

I had to drive to Nashville to pick someone up at the airport and that person was delayed with weather so I googled Mexican restaurants and Rosepepper Cantina. It was perfect the food was incredible the server great. I had the Rosepepper special a chicken enchilada that had a great hot spicy sauce. The queso and chips perfect

Often crowded at peak times but food is solid. Can get served pretty fast, important if you have little ones. Guacamole is very good. The chicken tamales are my favorite.

The husband and I are local to Nashville and we've always heard good things about RosePepper Cantina. We live about 10 minutes from the restaurant. Restaurant is located in a nice, trendy area with other shops and restaurants around. There is parking along the street and down the alley in the back with a $5 pay machine. Our server, Lizette,...

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
