Barbecue
Peg Leg finishes our top-three barbecue joints in Nashville. This one is in the gulch, so it's a short drive or Uber from our house. The pulled pork sandwich is the best in Tennessee!

Edley's is right around the corner; turn right onto 12th and it's a block down the street. Along with Martin's, Edley's is one of our neighborhood favorites. Try the brisket tacos!

Food scene
Josephine is our favorite restaurant in Nashville for special occasions. Luckily, it's just a few blocks up 12th Ave South. It's won a James Beard award for best restaurant the South -- and it's darn good. Quiet tables, usually need a reservation...but can often get squeezed in at the bar if you don't have one.

Hawkers opened up in East Nashville this year -- so it's across town - but worth the 15-minute drive. Hawkers has an eclectic menu of Asian Street food - it's like being at a big market in Singapore or Hong Kong - we bring our kids here to eat outside. It's a lot of fun!

Legit Old School Nashville
It's too bad that John Prine passed away last March, because he was known to be a lunch regular at Arnold's. If you're looking for a classic Nashville Meat + 3, don't miss Arnold's. (Meat + 3 is a classic Southern restaurant where you are served cafeteria style - you choose a daily meat special plus 3 sides.)

You can go to Hattie B's like everyone else visiting town...or you can go to the real, old-school hot chicken joints - Prince's and Bolton's. (They each of have 2 locations around town.) They are NOT PLAYING with the heat on the hot chicken!

Monell's - well worth the short drive to Germantown. This is a classic old-school Black-owned business that has been filling bellies forever. They bring baskets of fried chicken to the table like other restaurants bring bread. Need I say more. So good!

Great place for a milkshake, fries and to to listen to Chuck Berry or Elvis. This is a few miles West of us near the Sylvan Park neighborhood...worth a drive for an old-school hangout!

Fox's could have also been in my "Legit Old School Nashville" section because it's like a 1950s donut shop. It's a little bit of a drive, but really good!

The sweet potato cupcake here is 100% the best cupcake in the South...maybe America! Head up to Germantown, Nashville's oldest neighborhood. It's a great place to walk around and definitely stop at Cupcake Collection!

City/town information
Franklin is our favorite nearby day-trip town. It's about 30 minutes south of Nashville and has a beautiful, historic city square with great shopping, great restaurants and many interesting landmarks. Our favorite place to eat are Meridee's Breadbasket and Pucket's.

This is our favorite mostly-locals music venue. Hopefully post-Covid they will bring back their weekly Friday lunchtime show, which is broadcast life on WMOT Roots Radio - it always features four sets from up-and-coming country/folk/Americana artists.

You already know about the Ryman and all the Lower Broadway bars...but have you heard of Dee's Country Cocktail Lounge. It's a drive up to Madison, which is, um, interesting...but worth it for a $2 Hi Life and great music!
