The history of country music and the music itself was very rewarding in Nashville, but wow, there is some amazing eating in Nashville. Here, my soul was fed on so many levels and I left Nashville feeling fulfilled inside and out. Below, click on continue reading for all the places we ate…
We were staying at the Omni hotel, so we grabbed our first yummy meal at Barlines.
I loved being greeted with proper Sweet Tea and deep fried dills. We got the Baked Tennessee Ham & Cheese, which included a fried egg on top of the grilled cheese sandwich of: Dill Pickle, Pimento Cheese, Honey-Mustard! It was unique, filling and yummy.
Legend’s Corner was our first country music bar stop and by the end of the trip it was our favourite because the bands were always interactive by bringing the microphone to us to sing. I really liked the sweet tea moonshine!
A huge thank you to the security guards at The Stage on Broadway for recommending that we grab food from Jack’s and bring it on over.
It was senses overload with great music along with a very good bbq meal. We got the 3 meat sampler platter, green beans, mac and cheese and the tasty corn bread. It was a perfect night of food and music!
I was not prepared for how amazing this lunch experience was about to be. We saw the huge line out the door, but right away were greeted and offered sweet tea, water and lemonade while we waited in line. It also gave us a chance to look around at what everyone else was eating.
The service was just as amazing as the food. I love the cafeteria setup of all the choices and especially love that you pick your dessert first! Loved the bread pudding, strawberry pie and pecan pie! We all shared the food we got and everything was perfection: from the fried green tomatoes, yeast rolls, corn cakes, creamed corn to the turkey, roast beef and fried shrimp. Next time I’m back in Nashville I’m for sure hitting up this place again!
I learned from our visit to The Southern that I love grits, especially when creating my own eggy’s benny on top of very good biscuits, ham and poached eggs!
For great catfish, cornbread and sweet tea before a show at the Grand Ol’ Opry, I’d recommend Cock of the Walk. The atmosphere was quite interesting and the food was good and plentiful.
We had some amazing sweet potato pancakes with cinnamon cream syrup. Almost worth the hour wait in the rain.
We came for the biscuits and didn’t leave disappointed! The long cab ride both ways was a bit surprising and after the hotel told us we should always tell the cab driver that we are from the area and to not take the long way.
The biscuits and jams, sausages and gravy were delicious! But most of all the quiet atmosphere of sitting, enjoying and soaking in the sun was quite welcomed.
We were only able to hit up one food truck and we choose the perfect one! The Grilled Cheeserie!
Contrary to the foodless pictures, Monell’s was one of our favourite restaurants, but cell phones and picture taking weren’t allowed at the big communal table of strangers turned friends. $21 with tax for each. With this bowls of food were always coming out: 2 salads (cole slaw & pistachio pudding) 4 sides (cream corn, Mac & cheese, mashed potato & asparagus casserole), cornbread, biscuits & gravy, 4 meats (turkey, roast beef, pulled pork & fried chicken). And amazing apple pie for dessert. I left Nashville so very satisfied but still can’t wait to come back for more!
