when are you coming? I am an empty-nester after this weekend. DD leaving for college in Mississippi and DH is in Portland, OR.

So let's see:
Arnold's - going to be on Diners Drive Ins and Dives, is a RoadFood favorite. I think it's overrated and last time I ate there it was SALTY and I LOVE salt.

Loveless Cafe - of course it's world famous and there isn't a magazine that hasn't featured it. The food is okay and it's a fun place though it's a little far out from downtown

Monell's - the original Germantown location - is family style and they sit people together that don't know each other. Can be fun. Food is okay. Fried chicken is good and the salads are good. Saturday night is the best even though it's a little more expensive but it has catfish, meatloaf and pulled pork.

Sylvan Park - ok

Swett's is also famous but I wouldn't eat there because of some things I know and I would advise you not to go there

My preferences are a little lesser known places:

At the Table - soul food joint but he makes his stuff from scratch and from the farmers market instead of cans when he can

Wendell Smith's - this is a gem, very old and good food. Sells tomatoes and stuff on the counter for customers.

Blind Pig 55 - okay this is a new joint that is known for bbq but the sides were more than interesting and they were good - I'm dying to go on Sunday when they have fried chicken. They do have chicken fried steak

My favorite place of all, Dairy King, was lost in the flood and the city won't let them rebuild in their old location so they are in the process of renovating a space up the road but it won't be ready any time real soon I fear.

Again, a bbq joint but B&C Market BBQ just reopened at the Nashville Farmers Market House and they have KILLER CRACK grits - I call them that because they are so addictive that they sell a refillable grits bowl. But they have sides and usually a couple of meat selections

Let me know when you are coming and I'll try to remember some more places. Also depends on when you are trying to dine as some are not open nights and a lot of them aren't open weekends.

OH - Iron Pork Chop - we eat there quite often for lunch

Vittles, City Cafe East, I love the veggies at Tex's BBQ.
