JULIA CAPOGROSSI

Favorite Flavor of Margarita: Doesn’t matter—as long as the rim is heavily salted!

Best Mexican restaurant you’ve been to while on the road: Cantina Laredo! They used to have one in the Gulch in Nashville and it closed, so I was super excited when we had a radio visit in Syracuse, NY and they had one! Ugh- so good!

Favorite Mexican food you’ve never been able to pronounce correctly: Anything “Rellenos”

WILLIAMS HONOR

Favorite Flavor of Margarita: Strawberry

Do you prefer the margaritas frozen or on the rocks? Frozen!

Best Mexican restaurant you’ve been to while on the road: LAS PALMAS (Nashville!)

Favorite Mexican food you’ve never been able to pronounce correctly: Ohhh, I probably say all my favorites authentically incorrect. But I’m so excited about it and I give the awkward look along with the awkward hand gestures and it all works out. Ya know, my heart is all in!

What you love about Mexican food: Mexican food always says fun to me! I feel like you simply CANNOT be in a bad mood and get Mexican food! Maybe it’s because I have friends with me most times I go. Something about the chips, dips and great company. Infact, I admit, I have won customer of the week at a Nashville Mexican eatery…THAT’s how fun it is for me!

Do you pay extra for guac? I don’t get guac because I’m always drowning in cheese dip. It has to be the white cheese dip. Not the chunky stuff. But rumor has it Guac is extra.

NICK HICKMAN

Favorite Flavor of Margarita: Original! But I love strawberry as well.

Do you prefer the margaritas frozen or on the rocks? On the rocks with salt.

Best Mexican restaurant you’ve been to while on the road: The best Mexican restaurant I have been to in a long time is Casa De Fiesta on Bell Road in Nashville TN. It is amazing.

Favorite Mexican food you’ve never been able to pronounce correctly: I think I do a pretty good job of pronouncing everything, but maybe a “chimichanga.”

Do you pay extra for guac? I do not pay extra for gauc, I would pay extra for cheese, but gauc is just alright with me. Some places it is better than others.

Do you prefer the margaritas frozen or on the rocks? Depends on my mood, but usually frozen.

Best Mexican restaurant you’ve been to while on the road: There are two here in Nashville that are great! Five Points Cocina Mexicana in East Nashville and Tequilla’s in Nashville West.

It was incredible!
