First time eating SATCO-tastes exactly like Taco Bell. Staff wasn't the friendliest, you can tell it might be a party place when drunkards or young people grab and go. Was hoping for more!

My wife and I are in our 60's and are from Los Angeles, so our bar is set pretty high when it comes to quality Mexican food. Being 60 also means that if a place is too much of a college hang out, we'll probably get bored pretty quickly. That said, we really liked San Antonio Taco Co!! We figured... More

Came here with a local friend and was impressed. Food only took a minute to make and was great, chips and cheese seemed overpriced to me though. Cool location and atmosphere but the restaurant did seem a little dirty. Overall would recommend!!

Food fresh and adequate. Dumpy but not unpleasant. Nice beer selection. On a temperate day the patio is a must. Great location for visiting Vanderbilt.

Started by a couple of Vandy graduates, this place has served up excellent, low-cost mexican fare for decades. Outstanding taste and value. Love Satco!

Decided to check out San Antonio Taco Co. after wandering around Vanderbilt while visiting Nashville. We drove passed it on the way to campus and it seemed like a fun place to try. The menu was extensive! Everything was tasty. The ordering process is unique (at least to me) because you fill out an order form and then give it... More

College hang out with affordable Tex-mex food. Quick service and a deal for the price you pay. Nice seating outside and if cold, has outdoor heating. Can be crowded st lunch since so close to Vanderbilt University. Parking can be a little difficult

This is a funky restaurant filled with noisy college students. The tacos are good and varied. It is a good, inexpensive place for a quick meal.

We hit up this place on Saturday for lunch during a busy time at Vandy & Belmont. We did wait in a small line but the line moves very quickly. To top it off, we got our order quickly as well, within 5 mins after we ordered. My husband got the crunchy taco, a steak fajita and a chalupa and... More

Our family has been eating SATCO since college. My huband and I love it as much as the kids. The price can't be beat. The service is always outgoing and really fast. Food is prepared when ordered. You pick it up and help yourself to drinks and all-you-can-eat salsa and pico. Inside can be noisy and is bare bones in... More
