The Rosepepper Cantina
This week we felt the need to tell you about The Rosepepper Cantina. You probable already know about this restaurant which resides in East Nashville. They are the ones with the unbelievable funny signs that display in front of the store. Each time we stop by we alway chuckle to see what they came up with next. Their food is amazing, too. One of our favorite meals is the Chicken Fajita Burrito served with fresh guacamole, sour cream, and topped with chile rojo sauce. And you MUST order a pitcher of their house margarita (if you are over the age of 21) to get the full experience. Go check it out and make sure to tell us what you think on Twitter.
