According to Mashed, Fieri’s favorite place to eat in Tennessee is Mas Tacos Por Favor. Located in the heart of East Nashville lies the restaurant that has been serving up tacos and more since the 1970s.
The go-to dish at the Mexican restaurant is the tamales — with Fieri even calling them “one of the best I’ve ever had.” If you’re in the mood for tacos, Fieri suggests to try going vegetarian and ask for the quinoa and sweet potato taco calling the item “delicious, creative and hearty.”
Mas Tacos Par Favor is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and located at 732 Mcferrin Avenue in East Nashville.
