This is not Authentic Mexican food - not tasty. I would even put Taco Bell above this. This is your typical "Subway" tasting kind of Mexican Fast food place where everything tastes like it came out of a can or package, with tasteless seasonings added. If you are truly interested in good Mexican food in Franklin, go to Pueblo Real... More

I ordered 3 different types of tacos to go, close to closing. I was served well, and the food was so tasty and plentiful! The tacos were tender and well filled. They served them traditional style with 2 tacos under the filling. Very reasonable price for such great flavors. Will be back!

I always have to try the carnitas wherever I go and these certainly pass the test. The carne asada is excellent and the fish tacos are flavorful. Decent prices make this a must for great Mexican food.

I grew up in Southern California and have grown accustom to the "berto's" taco shops on every corner. (If you grew up in the area you know that "berto's" refers to abundance of taco shops that end in berto's, i.e. Alberto's, Humberto's, Filiberto's, etc.). These shops allow you to get great tasting, authentic Mexican food very quickly and cheaply. One... More

I know real Mexican food and the tacos I get here remidn me of my days in So Cal. This is the best I had had since leaving the west coast.

I don't understand the good reviews of this place. Nachos were dry with no melted cheese. So, basically you get chips with a few pieces of dried out meat and sprinkled with unmelted shredded cheese. Dry and yucky. Fish taco was basically a breaded deep fried fish stick in a tortilla and stuffed with a huge amount of cabbage mixture... More

We typically eat here 2X a month. Love the fajitas, cheese quesadillas. Would prefer to see new menu items, a variety of beans to go with rice (not just refried beans). Fish tacos seem to be a bit "over" fried lately.

I have enjoyed this restaurant many times. It is good affordable food served by friendly people. I have always enjoyed it. Better than some other "affordable" Mexican restaurants. I like their chips and sauces.

It is not in the best looking shopping center in town. So, you will have to trust. I love fish tacos--and so I have eaten them all over town. The fish tacos here are the best, hands down. I have even had other Oscar's tacos at other Oscar's around town, and they are not as good as these. If you... More

My wife and I eat here every single time we are on Nashville. The food is great and I consider the atmosphere a "hole in the wall" in the absolute best kind of way. The staff is very friendly. They always have a lot of customers but keep things moving. The portions are a good size too as everything is... More
