San Antonio Taco Company was conceived by two Vanderbilt University graduates and natives of San Antonio, Texas. A corporation was founded in July of 1984 to develop and operate an authenticTex-Mex restaurant in Nashville.
The first restaurant, located on 21st Avenue in the Vanderbilt area of Nashville, opened in the fall. Both founders worked the counter and in the kitchen.
San Antonio Taco Company (SATCO) caught on quickly with locals, who included students from Vanderbilt University, professionals from Vanderbilt Hospital across the street, and artists from the nearby "Music Row" neighborhood. The rest, as they say, "is history".
In November of 1990, the original owners sold SATCO to two other Vanderbilt graduates, who continue to own it -- keeping the tradition alive.
These days, SATCO is a landmark that enjoys an endless patronage of students and professionals alike. People visit us to experience the great open deck atmosphere. SATCO has become so popular that people clamor for SATCO at their functions, prompting SATCO to become a major catering company as well! You can enjoy SATCO at 416 21st Avenue South or get them to come to you and cook for your function!
