Now that I'm living in NYC, I miss La Hacienda more than any other Nashville restaurant. Unlike so many Americanized chains in Nashville, La Hacienda lets the food stands on its own rather than smothering it in cheese or sauces, and its dishes are all fresh, authentic, simple, and flavorful. The basics here are the best, I think: little corn tacos are piled with diced marinated beef, onions, and cilantro, and the rice is tender and fluffy. The rotisserie-cooked half chicken dish is incredible, too. And why eat fast food when La Hacienda is just as cheap?
Pros: , authentic, really damn cheap
Cons: crowded front parking, (park in the back), (park in the back)
