Jack’s Bar-B-Que – Nashville, TN

Not realizing that there was a free New Year’s Eve concert in downtownNashville, we headed down to Broadway to grab some lunch.  That explained the cordoned off streets and exorbitant parking (at noon).  We found a paid lot next to the Ryman and walked down to Broadway in the drizzle.  We turned the corner past […]

Arnold’s Country Kitchen – Nashville, TN

Heading to Nashville for a day of meandering and food, we were heading to my favorite “guitar store” on the planet, Carter Vintage Guitar.  I have had Arnold’s Country Kitchen on my list for several years, since they appeared in Garden-N’-Gun’s “50 Best Southern Foods” in the fall of 2011, and was surprised to find […]

Hattie B’s – Nashville, TN

If you’ve followed our adventures for a while, you know that I fell in love with Nashville hot chicken back in 2013.  Since that first visit to Prince’s, we’ve been back there three times and tried it in several places here. I didn’t realize that I wasn’t the only one involved in this love affair. […]

Bar-B-Cutie – Murfreesboro, TN

When you drive by a place and see the cowgirl on this sign, how can you not stop?  That was the dilemma I was faced with.  I had seen another location on Friday afternoon and had then driven by this one on the way to Fat Mo’s.  (Whenever I see a tag line like that […]

Fat Mo’s – Murfreesboro, TN

My original plan for Saturday morning included having breakfast in downtown Nashville.  The first restaurant that I tried had a line out the door and down the street, so I went to the second.  They told me that there was an estimated forty-five minute wait.  For breakfast?  For one? I ultimately ended up skipping breakfast […]

City House – Nashville, TN

One of the articles I reviewed, before I made my trip to Tennessee, was from Garden and Gun Magazine, in the 50 Best Southern Foods article from the October / November,  2011, issue.  In it, they raved about the locally produced ham belly pizza served at City House in Nashville.  After a day of wandering […]
