Funny Marquee Quotes From Rosepepper Cantina
Tacos & Queso
What my future daughter-in-law is sure to say to my son …
If only Nancy Reagan had thought to add this to the “Just say no” campaign.
It’s a fact.
I mean, it’s so true …
Paleo people, admit it. You miss queso SO MUCH.
I didn’t know Taco Tuesday was a thing, but okay, now I’ll add tacos to every Tuesday in my future.
The truth can be brutal, but everyone will understand this.

Some of the signs are a clear moment in time.

Well, I like my emotions, but I totally get wanting to always be full of tacos.
A new way to say “every morning is a chance at a new day” or, I guess, more tacos. I like it!

The East Nashville LGBTQ community loved this one. And, looking at the comments on Instagram, rainbows and unicorns included, everyone else did, too! #lovewins. 🦄🌈
You had me at “Queso Diem.” (Note that you can see the sign changes that came with the changing climate of social media. The sign used to have nothing around it, then it had #rosepepper and then, as Instagram took over the world, the sign changed to @TheRosepepper)
Tacos for Thanksgiving.
If only …
I may have teared up from giggling so hard reading this the first time …
Every dad in America needs to repeat this to his kids.
And, as of 2018, “hangry” is an official word. You knew that, right?!
I’m nacho type. 😂
Obviously this sign is from late 2017. I mean, Tide Pods? Kids … there are tacos. What is the deal???
After being at the beach, I’d like more ab definition. But, there you have it … I like tacos better.

Speaking of tequila (photo above), let’s turn to signs from Rosepepper about tequila and margaritas … get ready to want to sit on a patio immediately upon reading the next batch of signs.
Tequila & Margaritas
If tequila and margaritas are your ideas of happiness, you will love these signs at Rosepepper Cantina in East Nashville (and if you are in town, go have a margarita here as they are the real deal.)
Don’t text and drink. Really. Stop it!
This makes me a little uneasy. Just being honest … but, I’ve had plenty of days where I’ve thought this.
I love Vanilla Ice. I love margaritas. I love this sign.
There is something about tequila and expressing your love …
And, the universe does want us to be happy!!!
You know this sign went up after the holidays, right?
On those bad days … it’s gonna be okay.
Just don’t wear one of those “brunching” t-shirts, mmmkay?
Why are margaritas so much better than other mixed drinks?
This. This was January 2018. Maybe not everyone had as bad of a 2017 as I did, but man, it slayed me. Oh yeah, and there was the whole polarizing politics thing …
Everyone is nodding their head at this one. The months before the election, the aftermath, the way so many people treated each other. Tequila.
So many guys drove by this sign and just nodded their head. And, the ladies are still waiting on the boyfriend sign.
Don’t trust tequila.
This is NOT a defense!!!!!
This is abundantly quotable.
Harsh. But, Mother’s Day is coming up here before too long …
I have a personal bias against ‘adult’ being used as a verb, but in this instance, I completely embrace it.
This means they love their margaritas more than anything else in the entire world. 😂🌎
When I read this, I imagined a friend of mine saying this and immediately laughed out loud. We all have that friend, right?
We’ve all been there. Even if was calling someone back in the days before texting. We called in “having the dialies” which meant drunk dialing.
Alright, now it’s time to just laugh out loud over silly thoughts that made it onto this sign.
Random Saying that Made Us Laugh
And with that sign, we welcome you to the last category of this tribute to the Rosepepper Cantina marquee sign. You’ll also have this song in your head for the next few days … sorry about that.
Okay, seriously. If the State House can vote on making daylight savings a permanent thing (you’ve heard about this, right?), then can we push for this, too? 🤔
Halloween, Rosepepper Cantina style!
Tell me you didn’t just laugh at this?! Ha!
Country Music Fest weekend + Stanley Cup playoffs meant TOO MANY PEOPLE in Nashville!
Yes, you can never get it absolutely right …
The signs definitely get political, but just a little bit and always with a sense of humor.
