3. Bakersfield

Address: 201 3rd Ave S Nashville, TN 37201

Phone: (615) 522-0970

Bakersfield proclaims to be "a spot where the food is simple, the service is warm, and the atmosphere is alive." They serve up authentic, Mexican street fare -- and if you like tequilia and whiskey, you're in for a treat: they have over 100 tequlias and American whiskeys to choose from. Luckily for taco lovers, their offerings are as extensive as their liquor. Options include: fish, baja shrimp, al pastor, short rib, hongos, huitalacoche, carnitas, pollo diablo, pollo verde, and the papas + chorizo. I most recommend the huitalacoche, which features corn truffle, roasted poblano, corn, onion, cotija cheese, and cilantro.
