Street Food & Drinks At Bartaco

Bartaco is located on 12th Avenue South in the trendy neighborhood of 12 South. This area is a half-mile stretch with a vintage clothing store starting on one end and a gourmet restaurant on the other. One of the most walkable neighborhoods in Nashville, 12 South is a dining and shopping destination full of restaurants, bakeries, bars, and clothing boutiques. It’s also very dog and kid-friendly.

Set as a vacation-styled restaurant, bartaco offers its patrons a laid-back, coastal California environment. Although it has the California vibe, this eatery still retains its Nashville feel. Bartaco is known for its large craft cocktail bar, open-air dining on good-weather days, and of course, their famous fancy tacos.

Options range from Baja fish tacos to spiced chicken verde and seared chorizo. Unique ingredients also include ahi tuna, glazed pork belly, mushroom, cauliflower, and one of my favorites: roasted duck. In short, bartaco’s tacos do not disappoint.

The 12 South Neighborhood

If you want to enjoy weekly taco runs at bartaco, the 12 South neighborhood is a great place for your new home. There are currently homes for sale in this neighborhood, including one and two bedrooms in the $320,000 to $399,000 range. You can also find really nice four-bedroom homes for sale in the $750,000 to the $899,000 range. If you’re looking for a high-end home, these properties range in price from $2.3 million up to $ 2.9 million.

Whether you live in Nashville, Tennessee, or you’re just visiting, I highly recommend visiting 12 South, going to bartaco, and getting a spicy Margarita. I also highly recommend the cauliflower and duck tacos, as those are my two favorites. What’s cool about 12 South is you can go have your margarita and then walk by Draper James, a cool clothing store owned by Reese Witherspoon. Don’t forget to check out some of the vintage clothing stores and other restaurants in this bustling neighborhood.

Getting Pre-approved

One of the things that you’re going to need to view some of the homes in 12 South is a real estate agent—which I can help with. I’ll refer you to one of the great agents that work well with our team. The second thing you’ll need is a pre-approval letter.

The pre-approval letter is very important to let you view a home. It lets the listing agent and the seller know that you’re highly qualified, and we pride ourselves in providing the most fantastic pre-approval letter in the industry. We typically give the first page of the Fannie Mae DU or the Freddie Mac LP, which lets everybody know that we did our due diligence.

We also provide the first page of the credit report so that the seller and their agent can see what kind of FICO profile they’re looking at. Our famous video pre-approval details the whole pre-approval for the listing agent, including FICO score, debt ratio, job history, assets, and more. This allows the seller and their agent to feel comfortable with our team.

Why is this important? Imagine there are 10 offers on the table for $500,000, and all the pre-approval letters are just Word docs with a signature from a loan officer. But then you see one that stands out, as it includes a video. Which one do you think they’re going to pick?
