Prince’s Hot Chicken South – Nashville, TN

No trip to Nashville, for me, is complete without some hot chicken. We had driven up for the day for the flea market and some roaming around and were getting ready to head back home, as dinner time approached.  Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack is the pinnacle for me and we’ve been to the original (Ewing […]

Biscuit Love – Nashville, TN

On a Saturday trip to Nashville, we spent the morning at the flea market (one of the best in the South and worth the trip, IMO) and were looking for lunch.  I had one particular place in mind and found a parking place right across the street.  Only to find a line of 45-50 people […]

Leonard’s Pit Barbecue – Memphis, TN

As we headed back home from Little Rock, it looked like we would be driving through Memphis around lunch.  This was completely unplanned.  I looked at the list for options and, being Sunday, there were limited options.   Coming through, on the south side, at lunch time (see their hours above) narrowed it down to one […]

Knoth’s Bar-B-Que, Grand Rivers, KY

Zesto’s of West Columbia – West Columbia, SC

After our visit to Bernie’s and the comments I received, I knew that the next time I was in Columbia, I’d have to try Zesto of West Columbia.  With a business meeting in Columbia in the morning, we stopped at Zesto on the way back to Atlanta.  Originally part of a national chain, dating back […]

Stax’s Original Restaurant – Greenville, SC

After an afternoon chasing the Great Eclipse of 2017, we were back into the middle of a hot August afternoon and were making plans for the evening.  We had viewed the celestial event over in Pendleton and then went into Greenville for some late afternoon shopping.  Dinner time came around and I remembered in an […]

Bernie’s – Columbia, SC

As I planned a trip to Myrtle Beach, I realized that Columbia was about midway – and I had recently heard about Bernie’s Fried Chicken.  I had thought about stopping on the way up, but that was on Sunday – the one day of the week they are closed.    We were heading home on […]
