Very new taco place I try is is becoming the best taco place I ever tried... however I can now say that I have found the pinnacle. There is no better than this place. So authentic and satisfying. Great prices and atmosphere. Just make sure you bring cash.
Stopped here while traveling- well worth the wait in line. Cool atmosphere. Husband and I tried a couple types of tacos, the corn, and the tortilla soup. All great. The soup had a kick and I loved it. Tacos put my favorite local place to shame. They were stuffed full and reasonably priced. I liked the pulled pork taco.
Hands down favorite tacos in Nashville so far. Simple selection. Reasonably priced. Nothing frilly and over the top. The place is usually inundated with people, but it's totally worth the wait. Beware, it is CASH ONLY. They have an ATM on site, but it's not enough of a drawback to lose a star for.
Great, simple food. Roasted corn on the cob was excellent. Tacos were as well. Not 5 stars because of the flies on the patio. Need fly strips or more fans. No alcohol, which is fine with me.
Never been disappointed when we dine at Mas Tacos! The pulled pork and fried avocado tacos and elote (grilled corn) are my favorites! The best I've ever had! Bring cash and come early. There is always a line for this delicious, funky, little restaurant! (Writing this is making me crave Mas Tacos!)

The service was outstanding and the food was simply amazing. I will not cover appetizers. For the main course we had the barrel-cut steak and the dover sole with mashed potatoes and seared mushrooms. All of those were exquisite on every level, accompanied by, I repeat, unprecedented service and a great selection of wines. The interior is screaming but elegant. It can be described as "art-deco-chic". The hall is very large. There's a terrace with a fireplace outside as well. On a side note, the music selection didn't fit that well, at least at the time we were there. The live band was great, but perhaps a soothing jazz or some mellow vocals would feel more in tone.
During our 34th wedding anniversary celebration trip to Nashville, we made the wise decision to splurge and eat at Jeff Ruby's. Boy are we glad we did. We didn't have a reservation, but it worked out great because the patio seating is first come, first serve and it was a beautiful night to sit outside. Our waiter (Kevin) and the entire wait staff were polite and attentive. I even got escorted to the restroom when I asked for directions. THAT was a first!. The cocktails were lovely, the food was incredible (side dishes are enough for two or more). The wine recommendation was spot on! Kevin gave us some insights about local music spots (Skull Rainbow Room) which was also wonderful. i highly recommend Jeff Ruby's Restaurant and offer a very sincere THANK YOU for a wonderful evening.
The service is impeccable. My wife and I enjoyed the professional chats and recommendations. As for the food, Our hats off to the chef. We've tried many steakhouses around the world and this is by far the best. We will most definitely be back. Much love from Ontario, Canada.
It wasn't the greatest experience. Our server ignored us most of the evening. I ordered a mixed drink, may as well have been a straight shot of mixed liquor. So they replaced it and the next one reminded me of cough syrup. They did however give us a free dessert that was fantastic on the house for our anniversary. The sushi was spot on the steak was amazing!! The atmosphere was really relaxing. Apart from those minor issues it's very nice indeed.
Good food great ambiance. Place is good for a date or office party. It's a classy place

Delicious unique food, prices that make sense for what you get. Good beer options, clean bathrooms. What more can you ask for? We stopped on our walk through downtown, and I'm glad we did. Friendly staff (if a little pushy), and warm environment. Would go again for sure.
Absolutely delicious! Came here for lunch a few weeks ago with my friend, and we thoroughly enjoyed everything. Service was excellent, and there was a great variety of options to choose from both on the menu and for drink options. My friend thoroughly enjoyed her local beer. I highly recommend getting both the queso and guacamole - incredible. Will definitely be back!
Best tacos I've had outside my home! And they serve an amazing variety of flavors. Prices are for one small taco about 4 inches in diameter. A plate of four will run you about $16 plus tax, but you can have as few or as many as you want.
Had the steak tacos and portabella mushroom tacos. Both were really good. This place has a great beer and liquor selection. I'll definitely be back.
Oh so good. Everything was amazing. Servers were spectacular, drinks fantastic, food came up fast ,hot,and delicious. If I lived here I would dine here 2 to 3 times a week. Come to Boston and open a place please!!

The coolest honky tonk that I have ever seen. The music is not the normal music you hear on Broadway. They play a lot of the songs that you haven't heard in a while along with an abundance of new songs. The food and drinks are also very awesome. Best bar staff that I have seen in a long time. It gets crazy on the weekends!
Nudie's consistently had some of the best talent on Broadway. We love that place, and hate to leave but we feel like we need to try other places! You won't go wrong with a visit to Nudie's!
Great music here all the time! The layout is a bit weird and hard to walk around so that's why I can't give it 5 stars. But if all you care about is entertainment then you won't be disappointed.
I went here on a week night. This place has about 4 floors PLUS a Whole Roof all with a Bar!! and the Roof has an Amazing View!!! Definitely Recommend this place!!!
This establishment is totally awesome. Great for all genres of music! Loved the atmosphere.

Downtown Nashville's newest Mexican restaurant receives 5-star rating from me. Finally, a taco restaurant that serves flour tortillas with, what seems to be, 90% of meat in the taco (see the picture for yourself). I tried the pork and chicken tacos and was blown away by the flavor, quality, and quantity of the serving. They even include a single serving of chips and salsa with your tacos. Oh and by the way, they serve the tacos in these "taco holders" so the food stays hot and organized. The service was outstanding (ask for Brandon), and the atmosphere on their balcony was perfect. I received a warm welcome at the entrance, and the kitchen crew were friendly and helpful. It's nice to see teamwork at this restaurant. Some of the nearby restaurants could learn a great deal from this new restaurant. Keep up the great work, and please don't change or take your customers for granted. Also, please hire only the best. I recommend this new restaurant. Thanks.
Great drinks and much larger tacos than other gourmet tacos of the same quality and price. Although, they would be much better with more authentic corn totillas. Cool atmosphere and great staff! Wish it wasn't such a pain to park downtown... I would visit more if there was a location more accessible to non-tourists.
Great drinks and the best tacos I've ever eaten (chicken and fried catfish)! Guacamole and queso was fantastic! Friendly staff and reasonable prices in a somewhat over-priced tourist area. Try the rooftop seating. Great place to hang and people watch too. Maybe my fave spot to eat in the 5 days in Nashville (and we tried many)!
You have to stop here! Amazing food. Decent prices. Cool atmosphere. Best tacos ever!
The service was fast and amazing the food was good he answered our questions right away and gave us all the details. And the server was very kind. If your are in Nashville downtown I would definitely request this place to eat.
