The interior is kind of a cross between Pei Wei’s and a sports bar and the menu was just as eclectic. They offer a fair number of predetermined dishes, but they also let you build your own tacos, burritos, and fajitas. I opted for the latter which really meant I chose the meat, the shell and the toppings (and there was plenty to choose from) but it was assembled in the kitchen. Now, I tend to rate a Mexican restaurant on its hot sauce. If I order hot, I expect hot, not some watered down sissy version of hot that appeals to grandma and her acid reflux. The Swanky Taco had some awesome hot sauce. It was a warm chipotle sauce that, while I didn’t feel like it was “blow your head off” hot, made my wife’s hair sweat a bit after trying it on her fish tacos. Speaking of her entrée, I’m not much of a fish eater, but she is, and while I rate by the sauces, she rates by the fish tacos, and she thought they were the best she’d ever had, and that includes several places in Mexico and the Caribbean.
Great food, great variety, fast and very friendly service, a full bar, clean and interesting environment and very convenient to I-65, Franklin, and Cool Springs and Brentwood. If you’re in the mood for “The Bell”, head to Swanky Tacos instead. You’ll be glad you did.
