Authentic Mexican Food in Nashville

Restaurant atmosphere is 9 out of 10. A 9 because there was no Mexican music playing. I had the enchiladas with carnitas and mole rojo. The meal was 8 out of 10, the mole rojo had a mild flavor and lacked the the mole spice....For desert I had the curros; the curros as a bakery we’re a 10. The vanilla ice cream side disc was a 1; was expecting a Mexican vanilla ice cream flavor. Finally, I had the salsa botanera with chips to snack on and that was 8 out of 10. The Bar was a 10; I had the Oaxaca old fashioned and didn’t disappoint tremendous flavor. Overall it is a good authentic Mexican restaurant for cocktails and authentic Mexican food. I’ll definitely will go back to try something different.More

Great Service, Ambiance, and the food was Fantastic!

I’ll start by saying we had a drink, appetizers, main course, and desert. Had to practically roll out because everything was so good. The salsa taster was to die for and all 3 samples were delicious! Two in our group went back for dinner the...next day as well. I would have been there if I had been in town. You won’t be sorry if you are able to get in here!More

Worth the walk

Great place tucked away from all the traffic and congestion of Broadway. Authentic Mexican cuisine with amazing drinks and friendly servers make it a fantastic experience!

Authentic Mexican Cuisine!! Give it a try!

Wonderful authentic Mexican Cuisine. We were going to go to another Mexican restaurant, but wanted something more authentic. My husband worked hard on line to find this place. We understand it is very new and has few reviews and not as well known. This will...definitely change as more people find this new excellent restaurant. We had great service from Dice. I've never had pork belly, sounds disgusting, but thought I would give it a whirl, it was unbelievable. My husband took Dice's recommendation on the Barbacoa, delicious. Presentation was great, atmosphere upbeat and food wonderful. Give it a try!More

Unexpected Surprise

Walking around during a very crowded busy evening in Nashville, we were frustrated trying to find a good restaurant for dinner. My husband found Calacas Mexican Cuisine on-line. Ironically, it turned out to be next to the hotel, Springhill Suites, where we were staying. We...were greeted by the hostess and she kindly offered us a place at the bar or we could wait a short time for a table. Since it was late and we didn’t have reservations, we opted for two seats at the bar. The bartender was outstanding and managed a heavy work load with ease. It was fun just to watch him mix drinks. I am not a big Mexican food eater but this is not your typical Mexican restaurant. It is so much better! The Calacas salad with shrimp was absolutely delicious and my husband loved the Carne Asada. Margaritas were made with fresh ingredients and were really good. I would highly recommend Calacas Mexican Cuisine. My suggestion is to make reservations. It was one of the highlights on our Nashville visit.More

Change of pace

The strip can be overwhelming. After several days of amazing bands it was nice to find a place for a quiet start to the night. Calacas is brand new, opening in July 2021, and the ambiance reflects that shiny new feeling. Stunning bar, perfect mood...lighting and carefully selected fixtures. The choice of music isn't something Spanish inspired but they've opted to stream an ambient/chill vibe. The service was wonderful and keenly attentive, offering suggestions and guidance around food preferences. Clearly he was well versed in the menu! The food was very good. I had a salad with chicken and my boyfriend had the enchiladas. Portions were well sized and tasted fresh. what sets Calacas apart were the phenomenal margaritas. I had Pineapple and he had Calacas (a spicy variety). If I could offer a small addition to the cocktail menu it would be Sangria.More
