San Diego Style Mexican in Tennessee!

This is the closest you can get to authentic southern California style food without actually getting on a plane. Do not come here expecting the Tennessee tex-mex version of Mexican food that is so prevalent in the area. The atmosphere is great and having a drive though is a big plus. The... read more

not only does Tulum have the freshest food around and the ultimate fish tacos, the managers are very civic and community minded. They support many local causes. Their limonada is the stuff dreams are made of!

We have visited Tulum three times over the last six weeks and it has been consistently great. The choice of salsas, the fresh ingredients, and every dish we've tried has been tasty. I've had burritos, chimichangas, and mixed platters of salads and they just make it difficult to choose when I return. The only downside is the poor parking and... More

Quick, fresh, and great beer selection. Sat outside with our new puppy and staff was totally cool with it, even offering the pup aqua.

Stopped by on our way through Jackson and so glad we did! We ordered fish tacos and the banana leaf tamale. You order at the counter and then they bring it out to you, service was fast, perfect for our short pit stop. Food was fantastic, also loved their salsa bar with multiple types to try!!

The fish tacos is what everyone goes there for, but everything I have ever tried there is tasty, fresh, and awesome. Reasonably priced for such great fresh food.

Yes! This small Mexican Café is very close to the La Quinta on I-40 exit 82A in Jackson Tennessee and serves reasonably authentic and decent Mexican food. The building is a repurposed Burger King or other fast food place which has been reimagined as a Mexican restaurant. We had steak fajitas and a shredded beef burrito all served with the... More

My family ate here with our 2 kids. We left for under $30 and took leftovers back to the hotel. Very friendly people and the place was clean.

The food here was pretty good - had the chicken fajita with rice and beans. Our son had a beef taco (shredded beef) with rice and beans. They bring you warm chips and you can pick your salsa from their "salsa bar". They have a small selection of bottled beers and have margarita in a bottle. You order at the... More
