1200 Villa Place (at Edgehill Village), Nashville, Tennessee, USA, 37212

Serves meat, vegan options available. Casual American Mexican restaurant with several lacto vegetarian dishes on the menu and has a separate vegan menu with around 10 items plus sides. Try the vegetarian jerk taco, sweet potato fries, and mango salsa. Call for hours - tell us.

SO. GOOD. - Edit

They have a vegan menu you can ask for. Vegan enchiladas, vegan tacos (can get two and a side for 8.99), and they have vegan chips that are separate from the shared oil for meat. The waiters were great and very nice, and the margaritas were awesome.

Hit or Miss - Edit

I've been here a few times now and I either LOVE it or am disappointed. I love that they have a vegan/vegetarian menu and every waiter I have had has been knowledgable and able to answer my questions. I usually get the jerk tacos which are plantains fried with jerk sauce. They are usually great, twice they have been bland? Maybe they forgot the sauce. I really like the vegan enchiladas, with a side of fried plantain of course. The el camino margarita is on point! That being said, i think it is annoying that you have to pay for chips and salsa (it is definitely more expensive than the huge number of mexican restaurants in town that offer than for free) and the salsa has sucked every time we got it. Now I get the guacamole which is yummy. The food has been good enough times that I keep coming back, but every once in a while I'm left wanting more. Pretty pricey for the amount of food, but it is a good place to take omnivores who are afraid to eat meatless for a meal.

Great Place for Vegan and Meat-Eaters - Edit

My husband is not vegan nor is my family. This is a place where I feel comfortable and free to eat vegan gluten-free food without having to explain myself to the waiter. Love it. Classic.

Okay vegan options - Edit

Vegan options are pretty good, but small. The margaritas and guac are great. Expensive for the amount of food you're given.

Vegan menu! - Edit

I visited this restaurant on a business trip with a meat eater, and we could not have been happier with our decision! Great food for both of us. Great chips and fresh salsa. I asked for the vegan menu, and there are many vegan options. The staff was very vegan friendly.

The vegan tortilla soup was a bit disappointing for the price. It's very light, mostly broth, not much substance. It tasted good but isn't worth the price tag.

I then had two different vegan tacos for lunch. Both tacos were delicious, but the jerk tacos did not taste "jerk" or spicy enough for my preference. It was good, but I prefer spicy to sweet. They do have hot sauces that you can add to spice things up a bit. My other vegan taco was very good.

I really liked the large outdoor seating area just because it was large and relaxing. The view is not anything special, but it was nice just to be outside in the beautiful weather.

Pros: vegan menu!, reasonably priced, good food

Luv this place - Freakin Vegan Taco is the best - Edit

Taco Mamacita has a totally separate vegan menu -- make sure to ask for it before they seat you. My favorites are the Freakin' Vegan Taco and the Vegan Grande Chopped Salad, although I've also had the Guacamole Taco and the Vegan Enchiladas. The Freakin' Vegan Taco is SO GOOD -- definitely the best taco on the menu, better than the Jerk Taco and the Guac Taco. As for the side dishes, both the black bean & corn salad and the sweet potato fries are excellent. They have a special deal where you can get two tacos and a side for a reduced price. Also, they're open late (until at least 11:00 pm) every night.

Love the outdoor patio. Fun atmosphere with quirky Tex-Mex decor in a great location near Music Row. Nice, clean bathrooms. Parking can be a little dicey during peak hours, but the key is to find a nearby side street, parallel park, and walk a block or two. There's a pay lot across the street, but on-street parking is free -- you just have to find a spot.

Also, a gelato shop just opened next door to Taco Mamacita, and they typically have 1-3 vegan gelatos (sorbets) available each day!

Pros: Good portion sizes, Food comes out super fast!, Open till 11 pm

Cons: Loud, Often full of obnoxious Vandy kids, Drafty if host props open the front door

Worth A Visit - Edit

Taco Mamacita is in Edgehill village in the music row area. Parking in Edgehill village can sometimes be a pain, but it is worth it to support a vegan friendly restaurant. They have a separate vegan menu, so be sure to ask for it. On the vegan menu the have a few appetizers, side items and main course selections. The food was good, I had the avacado and jerk tacos as well as a three dip and chip appetizer. Casual atmosphere inside with a large-ish outside seating area. I will be making return trips.

Pros: Vegan Menu

They have a vegan menu! - Edit

Fresh and delicious! Lots of vegan options (ask for the vegan menu- see photos uploaded). They offer a special as well where you get 2 tacos and a side for an excellent deal. I had the vegan jerk taco and the avocado taco. I totally suggest these. I had the black bean and corn salad as my side but I also had a sample of their sweet potato fries (probably some of the best I've ever had).
The atmostphere is clean and vibrant as well.

Pros: variety, vegan menu, fresh
