There is always a crowd at Casa Fiesta, and most nights the line out front stretches down the sidewalk. Patience, however, is rewarded. Get ready for giant portions of delicious burritos, combination platters, and fajitas with rice and beans on the side garnished with more cheese than you have ever seen. The fried ice cream is a marvelous ending to your meal, and the margaritas, large enough to serve at least four people, will put you in a festive mood and keep you there most of the night!

Fat Mo's is a locally-owned fast food chain, but definitely not your standard fast food burger. These delicious and juicy burgers range in size from your typical quarter pounder to an impressive 27 ounces of freshly cooked ground beef. If you're looking for a burger that tastes like homemade, this is definitely the place to go. For all of the tasty toppings–grilled onions, mushrooms, bacon, BBQ sauce, and jalapeños–be sure to order your burger “Like Deluxe.” It costs a dollar more, but adds a whole lot of flavor. Don't forget the spicy fries for a side dish. If you're not in the mood for a burger, try the catfish sandwich, it's another Fat Mo's favorite.
While you wait for a table, have a drink at the bar and toss peanut shells on the floor. The wait at Longhorn Steakhouse is often long, but the steaks are worth it. The chef starts with a lean cut of choice beef, rubs it with Longhorn's signature spices and grills it to perfection. The succulent filet mignon, the hearty rib eye and the ever popular t-bone are all part of the culinary repertoire. The signature entree, a huge 22-ounce porterhouse steak, is beloved by serious beef lovers. Non-beef eaters can enjoy chicken and seafood dishes.
The Aquarium Restaurant is the perfect blend between a restaurant and an aquarium attraction. Dining is situated around a 200,000 gallon floor-to-ceiling aquarium filled with over 100 different species of tropical fish and sea life, and every seat is a good seat. The menu includes a variety of surf and turf and the servers are knowledgeable about both the menu and the aquarium. The restaurant is conveniently located in the Opry Mills Mall and also includes a bar, souvenir shop, and offers opportunities for students to participate in half-day marine biology programs. Directly across from the restaurant is Stingray Reef, a hands-on exhibit owned and operated by the Aquarium Restaurant.
The convincing oasis setting at Cascades almost makes you forget you're in a luxury hotel. The tranquil fountains and exotic plants lend themselves perfectly to the seafood menu. Guests of the Opryland Hotel rave about the food and fine service here, but this clever upscale dining experience isn't for hotel guests only. It's perfect for a romantic dinner or business luncheon, and you will love the soft-shell crabs, salmon steaks and scallop ravioli. Start your meal with oysters on the half shell and top off the event with something from the dessert cart, which features a delightfully sinful collection of cakes, pies and tortes.
You may not think of steak houses as romantic, but Old Hickory Steakhouse inside the famed Opryland Hotel is more than a steak house. The rich wood accents and mood lighting do have a romantic quality, but you'll really fall in love with the food. Popular menu items include Filet Mignon and Prime Rib, but you'll find New York strip, Porterhouse and T-bone steaks as well. Those with an aversion to red meat should try the fresh seafood and poultry dishes.
