I wouldn't go out of my way, but if you are staying at the Alpine, this is a pretty good place to eat. The food tastes authentic, which is a surprise considering it's in Cookesville, TN. The bartender was friendly and made a very good...More

El Tequila, as ocnsir says, is just across the parking lot from the Alpine Suites & Lodge and a great place to eat if you're staying there. It's also ez-off-ez-on Hwy 40, just east of Cookeville, TN. AND rather than build yet another a new...More

This restaurant has not been open very long - a couple of months, I think. The owner has a brother, I think, with another Mexican restaurant in Cookeville. This El Tequila took over a deserted restaurant building just down the hill from the Alpine Lodge & Suites in Cookeville. Great place to eat and a real plus being only a couple of steps away from AL&S.
