My husband and I grew up in Colorado and lived in Arizona for 11 years before first moving to Jacksonville, FL then Nashville. Good Mexican food in Jax was extremely hard to come by. We were delighted to discover a multitude of Mexican food options in Nashville. Meaning, of the same kind of caliber and taste of food we grew up with in CO and AZ. We think Sopapillas comes closest to nailing it!!!
The only reason I didn't give it a 5 instead of a 4 is the price...it's a little steep. However, we gladly pay it. The food has personality and flavor. (Their salsa can have a BITE which my husband loves!)
I've read some of the other reviews about the service. Sad some have encountered such negative experiences on that front. We've only had wonderful, attentive service.
And let's talk about it's namesake...the sopapillas. They're included with every meal and aren't the lame chip-like nacho crunchy things many Mex restaurants in the South call sopapillas and offer for dessert. Nope. These are the bona fide real deal puffy, rip them open and pour honey into their steamy cavity kind of sopapillas. YUM!!!!
I'm always torn deciding between their Tres Enchiladas, Stuffed Burrito, and green chile cheeseburger. Haven't gone wrong with any! My girlfriends always like their margaritas. I can't drink tequila but have had their mojito, which was perfectly wonderful.
