DETAILS
Perpetuators of that tired old cliche that all Mexican restaurants have the same menu and use the same five ingredients would do well to pay a visit to El Tapatio 2 on Nolensville Pike. Charcoal-grilled meats are the house specialty here, and the menu boasts plenty of surprises, including a wide array of seafood options. Some tacos come with grilled pineapple, and most with cilantro, onion and a strange medley of carrots, radishes and a whole-pickled jalapeno. The charcoal-grilled whole chicken is one signature dish not to miss, with deliciously charred crispy skin and a side of tortillas for personal taco assembly. Sure the vibe is a little bizarre, as are the giraffe-print resembling yellow and brown walls, but it's well-worth a visit when you're looking for something a little different on Nolensville Pike.  Beer available. Serving lunch and dinner until late night daily. "El Tapatio 2 is much more restaurant than taco truck. There’s an order counter and a well-worn, much-abused dining room. This place also has the spotlight on that charcoal chicken, but they offer a bigger lineup that includes seafood and sincronizadas (an overstuffed quesadilla with tortillas on each side, like buns on a sandwich.)"
