Clarksville, TN – El Toro de Don Jose at 1200 Fort Campbell Boulevard has the best Mexican food I’ve ever eaten. Picture taco shells that are so thin, so crisp, so light that they wrap perfectly around a hefty portion of meat, cheese, and lettuce. Add some sour cream, beans and rice and you have a perfect meal.
One person I know actually ate there eight times in one week at El Toro. Why? Because everything he tried was perfection. According to this faithful customer, the fajitas are great–either steak, chicken or shrimp. He says they are the best in Tennessee and he’s eaten Mexican food from Memphis to Knoxville and no one else can touch them.
