La Terraza is located in a semi-secluded corner of a small shopping center. It is offers marvelous ambience, fine service, and tasty food at modest prices. The buffet is an excellent option for the famished! Check out the authentic decor, even in the restrooms.

There was confusion over who should handle our table, so no one did for a while. Once someone was assigned to us, we very very rarely saw her. We had to go get our own napkins and ask 3 people for a glass of water after waiting for 15 mins with a completely empty glass. The food was decent, but... More

Great location but no competition on the quality and taste of the food. Garcia's across the street is MUCH better.

We went to La Terraza for a wedding celebration and it turned out to be wonderful experience. The food was plentiful and delicious and the service was excellent. I would definitely go there again.

My family and I were visiting Franklin, TN for Thanksgiving and stumbled upon this gem by accident. It's tucked away in the corner of a strip mall and easy to miss, but it's worth searching out. The atmosphere was pleasant with a very friendly staff. The Mexican food was the best we've had since moving to the South from Arizona.... More

The service here was fine. No issues with that but the quality of the food was not so hot. My family and I went on a Sunday after Church and the chips tasted a bit stale and out of a bag and the salsa was ok if you like tomatoe sauce with spices. I got the taco's and a chili... More

I've eaten here 4 times....once in and 3 times just picked it up and went back to the hotel. Always very good! Good, clean atmosphere. Saw lots of families and small groups but not the screaming kids. This is a better place. It's a normal stop for me when I'm in the Franklin area twice a year.

I really wanted the food to shine since my margarita was so tasty and the restaurant was visually appealing. It did not have that typical greasy, slippery floor you often have to negotiate in Mexican restaurants. The salsa arrived and while I found it better than the average fare you find in Nashville and surrounding areas, it was nothing to... More

Real food prepared for you when you order. We have come to really love this place. Since moving here from Florida, we had not found a Mexican Restarunt that was exceptional until we found La Terraza. The atmosphere is so pleasant we have had parties here. It is very large and airy. But most of all we appreciate the friendliness... More
