  • "My husband & I always end up with 3 little tag-a-longs on our dates. This restaurant is great for that or just a couple. Romantic, but not too fancy. Excellent service. Their big comfy booth worked great for us. The tables were spaced out enough that each group enjoyed their privacy or weren't bothered by our little ones. Margaritas were the best! I had the house Margaritas & my husband the strawberry they were excellent. A tequila lover's paradise. The kid's menu was nice & kept them pleased. The adult menu we had fajitas- zippy, but excellent. Excellent complementary tortillas chips, good guacamole. & they bring out a complementary dessert of Sopapillas & honey which were delish & kept children happy. Our new favorite spot!"

  • "The food is good but perhaps more expensive than many other good Mexican restaurants. Portions are generous. Atmosphere is very noisy. The place was packed, so it is obviously very popular and well liked."

  • "Good attitude about interpreting New Mexico tastes for Nashville tongues. New Mexico food is chili inspired and always lively. Almost anyone who goes to the trouble of importing Hatch chili is worthy of notice - ask for it if it doesn't say anything on the menu."

  • "We love Sopapilla's...at least we used to. Our server, Tracy, seemed fine at first. We absolutely love the table side guacamole. The addition of pomegranate is so spectacular that even my husband who is not a guacamole fan looks forward to it. We ordered it along with an order of queso. Tracy suggested the sampler. She said it's exactly the same guac, just made in the kitchen and not table side along with the same queso and bean dip. We took exactly the same to mean exactly. You know, WITH pomegranate. Not so much. Only when we asked where the pomegranate was did she tell us it doesn't come with the sampler unless we order it on the side. Not exactly the same, huh? Lobster tacos are off the menu, too, which was also a disappointment."

  • "My girlfriends and I are always getting together for fun a couple weekends a month. So far this was the most fun and enjoyable! Great and service. I had been earlier in the week and was also a great place for a couple to dine and visit!! We look forward to many future visits! The location and outside patio are perfect for this spring! A great time was had by All!"

  • "Sopapilla's was a nice time in all respects. Our server, Carrie Ann (named after the old Hollie's tune), was excellent. She prepared the fresh guacamole appetizer table-side, and it was just right. The blue-corn tortillas with chicken, the stuffed sopapilla with chicken, and the beef and shrimp quesadillas were ample and tasty, and doggie-bags were had by all. The tortillas and sopapilla were eaten with a fried egg on top which added a nice touch, and was said to be more "New Mexico" authentic. We did avail ourselves of the complimentary sopapilla with honey for dessert, and it was just enough sweet and pastry to satisfy. We would recommend Sopapilla's for those times when one craves good Southwestern cuisine at a very fair price."

  • "We used Open table to make a reservation so we would not have to wait several hours. On arrival we were given a pager . Our time was 07:15. At 0745 after many were seated ahead of us we asked the hostess how much longer she stated a table of two and then we a table of four would be seated. Then at 08:15 after a table of four among others seated before us we ask the hostess again when were we being seated she looked puzzled and stated she thought we had already been seated. Thankfully within five minutes after waiting over one hour we were seated. The food was great."

  • "This was our first time going to Sopapilla's, but let me tell you I can't wait to go back. Our reservation request through Open Table was handled perfectly by Sopapilla's and we got the table we requested. Olivia, our excellent server, went way out of her way to make our experience a great one. And when the food came, OMG, spectacular! The salsa is unique, in a wonderful way. The queso is what I've been soooo hungry for, that other restaurants can only wish they could do. Then, to top the whole thing off, the shrimp quesadilla was out of this world good. Huge chunks of shrimp, along with wonderful flavors everywhere. We're going back as soon as we can."

  • "Took a friend and his wife for his 62nd (can you say SSI) birthday celebration. The beef fajitas are the best in Nashville we have found since the closing of Rio Bravo. They had some seafood entres which they enjoyed. The only hiccup was the lack of 'local egg' on top of one of the entres as ordered. Overall a good nigh."

  • "Went on a crowded Friday night but had reservation. Still had to wait 25 minutes. Was not greeted at the hostess stand...erevyone seemed frantic. Service was very rushed. Waitress hurried our order and did not listen. Once our food was served she was not visible until we done....glad I didn't need anything. We had two kids with us and I do not recommend taking children particularly on a Friday night. Food is good and margaritas are good. Unfortunately service was poor."

  • "This place worked out great for us. Had a party of 12 to celebrate my wife birthday. Found this place last min and it turned out beautifully. The party room seats 12-15 comfortably. The service was perfect with a main server being helped by 2-3 others. The food was delicious. Was a little pricey for tacos ($14) but if you want cheap tacos go to Oscars. What you get for your money is great food in a fine dining atmosphere. The party room does cost $$ to rent out which is not clear on Open Table so make sure you call if that's what you're wanting."

  • "We dined with clients who recently moved to Franklin. Although it was a weeknight the restaurant was very crowded and the music was extremely loud. Our waiter was friendly but somewhat over taxed and missed a few cues on drink delivery and being on top of the specials. My dinner was adequate but not special. The fish in my taco was rubbery and way over cooked/heat lamped. The relleno I ordered was soggy but flavorful. My husband however ordered the three beef tacos and said they were excellent. Well probably return but at a less hectic hour in hopes we hit them on an off night."

  • "Make a reservation, make a reservation!! Boy I'm glad we did. I booked a 8pm, arrived about 7:30 purposely to hang at the bar. Had a few margaritas, a took a buzz with me to the table about 8:20 or so, no biggie. Ordered the valentines special, skirt steak and snapper for the gf. Server was nice, food was good, but the Sopapilla cake stole the show. It's some sort of fried dough, with Carmel drizzle over the top, SO SIMPLE, but sooooooo good. We will be back just for the dessert."

  • "We made our third visit to this restaurant relatively late on Valentine's Day evening. The bar was busy and the restaurant was moderately busy at that time. We were seated within 5 minutes of arrival but it took another 5 to 10 minutes for our waiter to acknowledge our presence and take our drink order. Our margaritas arrived 10 minutes later with the's waiter commenting that the bartender was backed up but no apology. The food was good but very slow in arriving. We had to request utensils and napkins. The slow service was a repeat of our last trip. We will try one more time before removing Sopapillas from our list."

  • "I enjoyed the energy in the restaurant. The music was jumping and the service was fast. The salsa is delicious. We ordered queso and it was great as well. The open faced enchiladas and shrimp quesadillas were wonderful. Oh and yes don't forget the margaritas. Overall, a great Friday evening."

You can customize your orders from the menu. Delicious toppings on our meals and free Sopapilla's with honey for dessert!! We will be back often to try everything on the menu."

  • "I've been all up and down Nolensville Rd. looking for good Mexican food and sad to say, I don't get it. Most of the "authentic" Mexican places are neither authentic or good. Same recipes, same generic refried beans, no home made tortillas. Having said that Sopapillas makes no pretense about authenticity, just offers well crafted, fresh New Mexican dishes that please the palate. Try the tres enchiladas- shredded beef, chicken and cheese with 3 different sauces...outstanding! Mrs. Ned enjoyed the huevos rancheros too. I almost forgot, the roasted chili salsa was as good as I've had. we actually bought a container to take home. Next time you're driving down Nolensville Rd., keep heading south until you get to Cool Springs...You'll be rewarded"

  • "I enjoyed Sopapilla's take on Mexican flavors--the ingredients were fresh and flavorful. It was filling without being heavy like so many Mexican restaurants. It sort of reminds me of Chipotle all grown up, into something artisanal and upscale and with a bar. The salsa was the best I've probably ever had, and the sopapillas at the end were a nice touch."

  • "We made a reservation for 7:00 on a Saturday. We got there about 5 minutes ahead of time. We had to wait until 7:30 for a table and were given a wobbly table that was mere inches from the diners on either side. I find that unacceptable for a high end (price) restaurant. The food was great as was the server but was ruined with the poor seating and cramped atmosphere as well as the long wait."

  • "I went to Sopapillas for a friend's birthday dinner celebration. We enjoyed wonderful service, tasty food in just the right quantities as well as spicy appetizers and beverages. The service was just right- they were attentive without hovering and always ready to refill glasses and take plates. The food was Southwestern/Mexican with some flair and creativity that added to its wonderful taste. When the checks came (done just the way we asked) I was pleasantly surprised with the affordability of the evening. I strongly recommend Sopapillas for everything from a simple meal out to a celebration event."

This is our favorite restaurant in Franklin. Reservations highly recommended for Friday and Saturday nights."
