Nothing special at all. Nashville has too many above average Mexican restaurants to justify this one. It wasn't the worst meal but nothing to recommend either.

The service was the only thing that was halfway decent. The chips and salsa were bland and if you wanted a second basket of chips its a $1.50. The portions where so small i thought i ordered off of the kids menu. Was not impressed by this restaurant in the least bit. Wouldnt recomend you to feed their foods to... More

We love going to US Border, the food is wonderful and authentic and the service is quick, much faster than the other restaurants we get waited on. Everyone is very friendly there. Just an enjoyable place near home to relax and have great food. The strawberry margarita's are very good too.

Good well seasoned 'el splatto' Mexican food. Friendly and fast service. Average ambience, not fancy at all, outside seating available.

We've been a couple times and sat on the patio each time. Their patio actually reminds me of Mexico: the walls look like they were built from salvaged metal and a sometimes noisy open-air experience is strangely inviting. It might not be for everyone. Then the food is pretty good! I've come to expect an average quality of food for... More

Good food at your pace. I never feel rushed or forgotten. Love the privacy of the booths. Good margaritas. Good portions. A frequent spot for me.

Better than average Mexican resturant, everything is good. When we want Mexican this is where we go when we don't want to travel very far.

Most Tex-Mex restaurants in Nashville seem to come from a cookie cutter. Not this one. A large menu has just about everything and is supported by a white board with all sorts of specials. The servers are friendly and helpful. Food is very good and prices are reasonable. Very clean.
