I met friends for an early dinner here. The restaurant is in the midst of one of East Nashville's several 'trendy zones' surrounded by other restaurants, coffee shops and bars. Parking can be challenging but I luckily found a spot easily. My friends were already at a prime spot on the covered outdoor deck. I ordered the Carne Asada Burrito.... More

This is what happens when Hipsters serve Mexican: Good margaritas, chips and salsa Dry flavorless fajitas- served with queso that has a few flakes of chorizo as a garnish. For good Mexican food with your good margarita in East Nashville go to Las Fiestas on Gallatin Road. If you want a hip and tasty joint try Little Donkey in Germantown.

I didn't eat here. I came for the margaritas. Really good atmosphere, great drinks. The sign outside is the crowning glory. A Nashville institution.

I wasn't super impressed. The three salsas they serve to start were not that great. Our server was overbearing. He told us they have the best margaritas in town. We each got one and they were sour and basically straight tequila... not much talent in making that. Good if the goal is to get drunk I guess, but we were... More

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

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,...
