Dangit...I wish I'd have known about a place like that when I lived in Memphis and was going to Nashville taking all the out-of-town relatives on the "country music" tours...that sounds YUMMO!!! I'll remember for next time I go home...AngusFangus said:I can help!
Give me an idea of what you're looking for...? Any preferences or dislikes, casual or formal, price range...? What area will you be staying in, what are your plans while here?
One place I always recommend to visitors is Rotier's. It is a little hole-in-the-wall, but the food is not to be beaten for down-home cooking. It's been here for decades, and the turnover there is nada - The same people work there every time I go in through the years.
If you want a taste of "true" Nashville, both in terms of food and hospitality, this is your place. Locals know it and love it. It's not a place you would find on your own without the help of a local It is ultra-casual and inexpensive. I would recommend it for lunch. They consistently win "Best Cheesburger," but they have my vote for "Best Fried Chicken Livers." Oh man!
I don't mind dives at all...I lived in Memphis. ;D Oops that was out loud. Seriously though, some of the best food I've ever eaten (especially in the South) came in places that were scary looking but sooo incredibly good.AngusFangus said:It is GOOD! Good good good! It's totally a dive, but absolutely LOADED with character.
If you ever get back here, it's around 25th and Church, I think, very near Centennial Park.
