Long before Rosepepper was known for its witty, regularly-changing sign, it was known for great tacos and margaritas - which aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. This East Nashville favorite is always busy, with consistently delicious Mexican classics - like tamales and chile rellenos - and a large patio that screams, “come day drink on me.” You’ll likely see at least 12 people you know - or possibly make 12 new friends - every time you go here, so be prepared for Margarita Monday to bleed into Taco Tuesday.
