Take a First Look at Fogatas in Franklin


Fogatas opened quietly in the former location of La Terraza Mexican Grill at 1010 Murfreesboro Road in the Maples Shopping Center in Franklin.

This will be the second location for Fogatas. You can also find Focatas in Nashville on Nolensville Road, tucked in a shopping center next to Lowe’s. When their Nashville location opened, they quickly became a favorite among locals. The authentic Mexican restaurant has won the praises of every local food critic and a few have even said they wanted to keep a secret; it’s that good. 

The co-owner Narciso Viñas spoke to us about expanding into Franklin.

He and his brother Miguel, who own Fogatas in Nashville, had been looking for the perfect place to open a second location. After much consideration, they felt Franklin was the right choice.

If you haven’t visited the Nolensville Road location, Viñas tells us everything on the menu is made from scratch, and there are over 100 items on the menu. Fogatas is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and offers a juice bar along with agua fresca. On a recent visit to the restaurant, we tried the Seafood Tostado and the Burrito Fogatas for lunch, both were large portions. The menu includes lunch specials where you can order an entree for $7.99. Breakfast items include Huevos and Chilaquiles along with fresh juices.

Take a look at our photos below.

Fogatas is located in the Maples Shopping Center at 1010 Murfreesboro Road, Franklin. Hours of operation are from 8 am – 9 pm daily.




  1. I am so sorry to hear that Saffire is closing! I will miss the Jerri Rae martinit, along with everything else! It’s a special place to have so near to our home. Saffire will be missed!
