Mas Tacos Por Favor is a small, cash-only taco shop in East Nashville that you’d think was in coastal California, if it weren’t for the lack of ocean and surfboards lined up outside. Along with the super colorful interior and overall beachy feel, they also serve the best tacos in the city. You can’t go wrong with any of them, but make sure to get some tortilla soup too, along with at least one elote per person. Stop by for lunch while exploring East Nashville or after you’ve had a few drinks at The Pharmacy beer garden next door.
