My New Favorite Mexican Place

After such great experiences at Chuy's and Sopapilla's in Franklin, and El Mariachi in Nashville, I wasn't sure if there would ever be any reason to have another Mexican restaurant in Middle Tennessee.

A few weeks ago, I was showing property in Nolensville. After leaving my clients to return to the office, I stumbled on Oscar's Taco Shop in a Nolensville strip mall. I stopped, more out of curiosity, and I'm glad I did.

There are multiple Middle Tennessee locations. To find out where Oscar's has shops, check out their site by clicking HERE.

I'm a shredded beef lover and am frequently disappointed when a Mexican restaurant does not provide that on it's menu. That's why I love El Mariachi (on Thompson Lane near Sidco). I can always count on them to have a shredded beef chimichanga.

When I got to Oscar's, the place was loaded with people. While there was nothing really special about the atmosphere, almost every table was full, and the aroma of delicious Mexican food was in the air. I was drawn into this new and fascinating place.

I ordered the shredded beef tacos for lunch at the Nolensville location. A few weeks later, I went to the Cool Springs location (across from Centennial High School) with friends for breakfast and had the shredded beef burrito (with egg and cheese) for breakfast along with fried potatoes. And I've returned to both locations since.

While the locations are pretty basic in appearance (laminate tables and benches, neutral paint colors, tile floors), the food makes the trip there worthwhile. This is a place I whole heartedly recommend. It's some of the best Mexican food I've ever had. Most of Mexican in the states is more of a Tex-Mex. Not so with this establishment. It's more authentic than others. Give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

Give Jack a call if you're looking for real estate or want to sell. Jack knows the Middle Tennessee area, understands the mindset of people here, and is an expert in his field.
