Arnold's - 605 8th Avenue South
Only open from 10:30 - 2:45 you need to get here early to get a spot. They do have a line, but this is a must do when visiting Nashville.
Baja Burrito - 722 Thompson Lane
This place must put crack into their burritos, because they are addictive.
Clyde's On Church - 1700 Church Street
Looking for something different? Here ya go...Drinks and more.
Cori's DogHouse - 106 29th Avenue North
One of my favorite Hot Dog places. Try eating your way around the US...you'll see what I mean when you get there. I'm close!
Dozens Bakery - 516 Hagan Street #103
The place to go for pastries, bread...even lunch!
Hattie B's Chicken - 112 19th Avenue South
There are 2 locations for this place, both will have a line out the door, so it doesn't really matter which one you go to. This is not my favorite Hot Chicken place, but it is the quickest...yes, even with the wait. I would suggest Prince's but you'll be waiting twice a long. I do prefer the sides here though.
Hermitage Cafe - 71 Hermitage Avenue
Late night, early morning, or whenever, CASH ONLY THOUGH. This is a great greasy spoon. Cures your hangovers.
I Dream of Weenie - 113 South 11th Street
One of the two of my favorite Hot Dog places. I like the Pimento Cheese Weenie.
Kung Fu Saloon - 1921 Division Street
Come here to drink and play!
Martin's BBQ - 410 4th Avenue South
Right downtown, behind the Omni Hotel. If you want some great BBQ, but don't want to try to find Tex's, then this is my #2 choice.
Mitchell's - 1306 McGavock Pike
Looking for a tasty sandwich? Then here's where you need to be. I prefer the Banh Mi or the Smoked BBQ Beef Brisket, but there isn't anything bad here.
Monell's - 1400 Murfreesboro Pike
THIS IS A MUST GO TO, especially for breakfast. Southern Family Style, you'll meet all kinds of people while dining here. There are 2 locations, the Manor, will be the easiest to get into, the Germantown location is the original, but you'll probably be waiting a while.
Paradise Park - 411 Broadway
When you're on Lower Broadway, it's late, and you need food, there is no better place to go. You can't miss the big neon sign. The tater tots and hamburgers are great!
Pied Piper - 1601 Riverside Drive
Once you're done at I Dream of Weenie, head across the street to the Pied Piper for some of the BEST ice cream you've ever had.
Puckett's - 500 Church Street
They have a good assortment of food, but breakfast is the time to go for me. When I can't do Monell's, I go to Puckett's.
Robert's Western World - 416 Broadway B
Katie swears by this place for their Grilled Cheese sandwich, I prefer the Fried Bologna myself.
Rodizio - 166 2nd Avenue North
This is my go to for my Birthday... Brazilian Steakhouse...MEAT COMA, that's all I have to say. If you leave here hungry, you need help.
Rolf & Daughters - 700 Taylor Street
A little pricey for food, but their drink menu is spectacular.
Tex's World Famous BBQ - 1013 Foster Avenue
This place is only open from 11-2, but they have some of the BEST BBQ in the world. I don't think that I've ever had anything I didn't like here.
The Grilled Cheeserie - 2003 Belcourt Avenue
If you're a grilled cheese enthusiast then this is where you need to go...Plus they have food trucks all over.
Two Boots Pizza - 1925 Broadway
My favorite pizza's to get here are the Bayou Beast (I know you think shrimp on a pizza wouldn't be good, but it is). The Dude, Super Newman, and A Gathering of the Tribes.
SATCO - 416 21st Avenue South
This place was once downtown, then they closed that location creating sadness in me, but this one near Vandy is just as good. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu.
