A hidden treasure.
I had always wondered about Las Americas but never visited because I figured it was more of an 'authentic' place and quite honestly, was afraid of a language barrier. My awesome mechanic next door, ESSY AUTO, suggested it while I waited for new brakes. What a treasure I had been missing for unfound reasons.
This place had the best chicken quesadilla I've ever eaten. It was filled with thick cheese and had a light buttery shell with lettuce/tomato slice/sour cream. I had a side of rice and cheese dip. The cheese dip came in a big bowl and was much cheaper than the small ones at most places. I had lunch with a drink for less that $8 and walked out with a to-go box.
The service was a little slow to start but fine once I had placed my order. No communication issues AT ALL.
I saw someone having what I now know is a papusa and I can't wait to go back and try one! They looked great!
Best papusas ever.
It's hard to believe I've been going there frequently for 5 years and the worst I can say is the chicken was dry once and the waitresses are a little slow bringing the check sometimes. They are just that consistently good. A couple tacos, a papusa and a coke for less than $7? With table service? Unheard of.
(First time there, nervous with the language, I tried to order a fajita taco and got fajitas. Kinda doubt that would happen to anyone today.)
Pupusas!!. I'm a big fan of the small little latin american restaurants and taco trucks on Nolensville but this one beats them all. The price is great. The food is great. But the Pupusa's take the prize. Go there and get a bean and cheese pupusa, its a thick corn tortilla pancake stuffed with beans and delicious cheese (there are several options for stuffing but I always stick with the bean and cheese). Its by far my favorite new food of 2007.
best Mexican in town. I have been to many Mexican restaurants in Nashville, and this is by far the closest to actual Mexican/Central American dining I've found so far. The burrito Las Americas is the best burrito in town (and at $3.99, possibly the cheapest). The tacos are authentic, fresh and delicious. And the specialty item, the pupusa, is fantastic. Service is always good, even if communication is occasionally difficult. Don't let the bars on the windows and somewhat trashy-looking exterior keep you from discovering one of Nashville's best-kept secrets.
Best you could possible wish for!. I have been only a few times, because I no longer live in Antioch, but this place is the best. It was recommened to me by a local, who happens to be hispanic. He was right. Expect a restaurant where most of the customers speak English as a second language and your waitress too. It is worth it, the food is awesome! Make sure you try the Pupusa!
Authentic Mexican restaurant caters to ex-pats and foodies in-the-know..
Las Americas has that undiscovered feeling. If you don't speak Spanish, you'll probably stand out. Well-prepared dishes from Mexico and El Salvador make for a refreshing change from your standard-issue Tex-Mex. The menu includes authentic soft-corn tortillas and burritos, along with coastal treats like oysters and seafood stew. The stars of the menu are the pupusas, crispy fried cornmeal cakes filled with meats and cheeses. The house specialty, revueltas, are filled with pork and cheese.
Decent mexican food, a Nashville surprise!. So far only had the huevos rancheros, but the beans and rice were decent, such a surprise for Nashville!
Best Mexican food in Nashville. This is one of the best authentic mexican restaraunt in Nashville.
