Let’s give ’em something to taco ’bout…
A recent poll stated that 99.9% of people love tacos and the other .1% are completely crazy. Ok, that’s a lie. But come on who doesn’t like a good taco? I believe that food can make or break a city. Since I’m a Nashville local I took on the troublesome task of trying every taco in Nashville to tell you about only the absolute best. Someone had to do it. Not all heros wear capes.
I’ll start with my personal favorite…

BarTaco is the perfect place for a date night or get together with friends. It has a stylish environment, from good music to inviting lighting,
and gives you a taste of the local side of Nashville. There is usually a wait which provides you time to hang out at the bar and
drink a couple freshly squeezed margaritas inside. There is plenty of seating inside as well as cozy outside seating equiped with blankets
and fires on chilly nights. BarTaco is home to some of the most creative and unique tacos, which makes it hard not to try them all.
A unique twist for BarTaco is that there are no TV’s purposely to encourage a refreshing social atmosphere.
