Great food, fast service, great location, Very nice folks

I travel on business from Knoxville to Nashville and stop at Blue Coast Burrito for dinner. The food is always outstanding, the place is clean, the people are very friendly and the service is fast even when they are busy. I don't usually write reviews, but they deserve a big thumbs up.

Being from San Diego the Baja Fish tacos are the closest you can get in this area. I haven't tried anything else, so I can't tell you anything about the rest of their food.

I have eaten numerous times at BCB in Cookeville with consistent results. The characteristic that sets this restaurant apart from so many others is their food is always fresh and healthy.

In my opinion, this is a failed attempt to imitate Moe's or Chipotle's, neither of which must many Cookeville diners ever experienced. The meats were cold, the servers acted as though my patronage was an imposition and I was charged extra for the smidgen of guacamole on my tacos. And the guacamole tasted like it came from a plastic bag... More

Quite busy so I ordered to go. The fish tacos were delicious and HUGE. Had a difficult time finishing what I ordered for lunch. Looked like a variety of folks dining - friends meeting for lunch, business people, quite a mix. Definitely recommend!
