Sopapilla's Ratings and Reviews
The food was very good for New Mexican fare in TN. The chips and salsa were very good, salsa was flavorful not hot so you could taste every ingredient. The stuffed sopapillias were really good and not too much food. I will go back to Sopapillias in the future.
We had reservations;the restaurant was virtually empty when we got there 6 in our party were seated on wall by door very cold every time door opened . 3people in our party ended up wearing our coats. Was told we couldn't move not sure reason why. Then the waitress added 20% gratuity to our ticket. I know this is sometimes done in parties of 6 or more but usually server lets you know. If I had not been paying attention we would have double tipped. I usually tip 20% if service is good but don't like it being added for us and service was not that good even with restaurant empty. Other issue is Soppalias has always given a free soppalia at the end of the meal-this was their signature thing- they have changed that to now you have to pay. This was one of things we loved about soppalias. It just seems to be going downhill and there are other good Mexican food out there that are not so pricey for lack of service and just ok food
What a fabulous place for brunch!! Every dish was better than the last and the bottomless Bloody Mary bar was awesome! I would recommend Sopapilla’s for any meal given my experience with their extensive Sunday brunch. A definite must!! I’ve tried many places for brunch, but this one I would highly recommend!
Food was excellent. Service was by a waiter who looked like he was not happy at his job. Not a smile to be had. He didn't write down our order for 4 people and got it wrong. Waited for a simple ice tea forever (twice). Shame a poor server can put a damper on an otherwise good experience.
One of those bad evenings in the kitchen but sitting outside made it much better. Could recognize when we entered the restaurant there was some kind of “disturbance in the force”. Took a bit to be seated, drink orders taken but........ Starters came out after a bit but drinks still not delivered. 2 of the entrees arrived but there were more than 2 guest. Service recovery was limited to profuse apologies about others not showing up for work. Appreciate knowing the “why” but I hate when we throw others under the bus (even if they failed to show. I expect management to have a plan B).
This was meant to be our treat for some friends. Sorry we chose Sopapillas. The place was not full yet we waited more than a half hour for our drink order (nothing complicated, drafts and wine). We were sorta ok with that because we were enjoying our friends, but we couldn’t even get glasses of water to hold us over. Three friendly requests. Waiter was new and apologetic, said they asked the manager to help get our orders in... just weird. Chips were good, food was ok.
Food not that good, at all...menu items need to revamped...items were over worked, case in point the pineapple guacamole needs to be brought down a notch(trying to hard)....the shrimp and grits almost too sweet....my companion also did not enjoy the shrimp fajitas.....THE DRINKS THO WAS DAMN GOOD....!
I tried the new Chicken and Sopapillas on this visit and they were fabulous! I would highly recommend. In the past, I have ventured to taste the fish tacos and they were great as well. The Sunday brunch is to die for. We have always had great service. One of my favorite places to go!
One of the primary aspects of Sopapilla's used to be the complementary Sopapilla's you would receive after your meal. (Note I said "used to"
Since they don't offer the complementary Sopapilla's after your meal, they should change the name of their Restaurant to "Sopapilla's $4"!
If they aren't going to offer the complementary Sopapilla's, they should reduce the price of the meals by $1.
The waiter made sure to point out the new Desert Menu. 4 deserts and the $4 for 4 Sopapilla's w/ Honey. I read the desert menu and was immediately turned off by a strange addition to Key Lime Pie, and a strange Cheesecake offering. Two desert items that should never have strange additions, unless your desert maker cannot make two staple desert items.
Needless to say, I will be hard-pressed to return to Sopapilla's.
Good but needs more. The chicken and sopapilla's is very 'brown' looking. Glad I asked for the gravy on the side. It needed something more... something green, not just the garnish, or black beans. Wait staff looks adequate enough but not very attentive and forgetful. Asking for drink refills and not getting them till after the meal. The chips and salsa were good and fresh. It's a little more costly than most southwest/Mexican restaurants but if you're in the area it's something to try. They have a large bar area and outside dining area as well though there's really nothing to look at but parked cars and buildings. The decor was basic wish it was a little more of a southwest theme maybe some pottery, woven hangings, Native American since they use the New Mexico symbol. Music is not what you would expect in a southwest restaurant a little jazz fusion. The ceiling is exposed so the noise level got louder as more people came in. Maybe I was expecting more of a Navajo/New Mexico Native American experience.
I have eaten a lot at Sopapillas in the past. It has always been great! Last nite, the restaurant was off! From the start , we arrived for our reservation on time and because we had added 1 person, they were unable to accommodate our party in a timely manner. The chips were old and not fresh at all. Our food came out for 4 of us but the 5th meal was held up in the kitchen for 20-15 minutes. We were told the kitchen staff was new and had messed up the order. We all waited for the 5th meal to arrive at the table which caused all of the other 4 meals to be cold. The server over charged us on each drink order despite happy hour and gave us cash back rather than correcting the bill. The manager never came around to ask how our dining experience was. I had to get up and go complain to the manager. The manager did apologize and gave us a $50 gift card and never offered to void the entire bill. We spent over $90 on the bill. Overall, the restaurant gets a 2 out of 10 for this dining experience. Very disappointed😒
