Like most restaurants on/near the Vanderbilt Campus area, free parking is sometimes hard to find. In no hurry to place a carry-out, I simply drove around the block several times and in less than 10 minutes I had a space. In the entrance you find an order pad and mark down your name, dine-in or carry-out, choose your items and... More

Yup, it gets pretty busy around here! Glad you enjoyed yourself, but I'm sorry about the guac. I'll talk to the team about paying attention to detail, but in the meantime, thanks for reviewing us! Best, Robert, Supervisor More

We dropped in for what we thought would be an inexpensive lunch, and basically ordered about 2-3 tacos each. They are made to order and you choose exactly what you would like on each taco, and some ingredients come with a price. Family of 4, with no alcohol, and not huge portions cost about $45.00. Not awful for a metropolitan... More

Love this place for its outdoor seating, great food, bucket of beers and great pricing. Always a staple when friends come in town especially on warmer weather nights.

THE absolute best deck to dine on in Nashville. Grab some tacos and a bucket of brews and kick back in the shade. Within walking distance to Vanderbilt, it's a cool restaurant in a cool location.

Satco offers a great patio with fans during the summer and heaters during the winter. There are flat screen outside so it's great to catch a game here. Most items on the menu are $1.50-$2 so it's very affordable and you get unlimited refills on chips if you buy them! I personally love the soft tacos and guacamole here!

The tacos at SATCO were incredibly good. There is a large variety with a few good vegetarian options. It's easy to order as much or as little as you want. The food is very good, but also quite cheap. The service is also incredibly fast. A great place.

This was a favorite spot when I was in college in Nashville. I make sure to go back whenever I visit! No one I've gone with has ever been disappointed. The staff is friendly and fun.
