When Carlos and Lillian Yepez opened La Hacienda in 1993, visitors quickly came to love the simple taco stand with seating for 20. Today, our restaurant at 2615 Nolensville Road seats 130. The menu includes many delicious Mexican favorites. We’re very grateful for our success and see it as a victory for the whole community.
Just next door, our Mexican market also stays busy throughout the week. Mercado La Hacienda actually opened in 1992, a year earlier than its sister restaurant. At the time, this was the only market catering to our Hispanic friends and neighbors.
We started small. At first, we were only able to carry those grocery items most important to our customers. This meant driving to Chicago once a week. Our little trailer always seemed ready to burst once we’d packed it full for the return trip to Nashville. The authentic ingredients and food specialties we carried home brought smiles to kitchens all over town.
Today the market also includes a full-service butcher shop, bakery, and other useful services such as Western Union, money orders, calling cards and utility payments.
Though our restaurant is in Nashville, Mexican food lovers in seven states now enjoy the traditional tortillas made here with care each day. We provide corn and flour tortillas, along with an assortment of other authentic products, to more than 500 restaurant and food service accounts over a seven-state area.
Thanks for taking the time to learn a little more about us. We invite you to stop by and see for yourself what all the talk is about.
