All the Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives in Nashville
Although Nashville might be named Music City, when it comes to Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, the foods alternatives are appropriate in tune. Above the show’s numerous seasons, Guy Fieri has visited Tennessee a great number of occasions, frequently stopping through Nashville to feast on Southern classics, burgers, Jamaican dishes and traditional meat-and-three fare. There are several beloved eating places in the better Nashville, Franklin and Hendersonville locations that Man Fieri has visited on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
Tennessee is legendary for its barbecue eating places, like entire hogs and exceptional pulled pork. Guy stopped by Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint, just outdoors Nashville, for pulled pork sliders that wowed him with their flavor and moistness. (The restaurant is also beloved for its fried bologna sandwiches.) Center Stage Pit Barbecue, in nearby Hendersonville, is the spot to go if you really like ham. Proprietor Robert Duke smokes his pork right up until it is as dark as the smoker. Man went for the holiday ham, learning that it’s a one particular-of-a-variety dish. Brined for four days, then smoked for 6 hours, it’s sugar-sprinkled and bruleed, making a candy-like exterior that Man declared to be ham brittle, and raved about.
Dining establishments like 55 South, in Franklin, draw crowds for fantastic Southern fare, such as Nashville's legendary sizzling chicken and a dish of char-grilled oysters that had an alluring "wood-smoke" part that earned raves from Man.
1 Tennessee have to-try out — or need to we say 3 — is the meat-and-3 platter. Diners decide on their principal, which could be chicken-fried steak, fried chicken, meatloaf, brisket, pot roast, fried catfish, chicken and dumplings or other hearty mains, then choose three sides, like macaroni and cheese, collard greens, succotash and far more. One particular of the indisputably ideal areas to attempt meat and 3 is Arnold’s Country Kitchen, a legendary family members-run spot in Nashville. Guy stopped in and feasted on chicken and dumplings with a side of turnip greens, and swiftly understood the hype.
At Athens Family Restaurant on Franklin Pike, there is a fitting Greek spin on diner classics, which includes soups, salads and burgers. Guy devoured the hefty bacon-lamb burger, which is seasoned with "love spice," and loved a chicken turnover that was a delight for the egg-averse Guy.
