If a person has a craving for a certain food, they should be able to find it in Nashville. You can even book a “Foodie Package”. This package contains restaurant discounts and/or gift cards, hotel room, choice of tours such as the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum, and many other special treats. There are six different packages available, so experiences differ depending on your choice of packages
Puckett's Restaurant & Grocery
Puckett's Restaurant & Grocery began as a country store in the 1950s. Slowly they transitioned into a restaurant combined with the general store. Today they have five locations. Some of their menu items are exactly what you would expect in Nashville:
- BBQ Pulled Port
- Chicken Fried Chicken
- Texas Hot Brown
- Fried Catfish
- Chopped Steak
- Black Berry or Peach Cobbler
There are also some surprises on the menu, such as:
- Fresh Gulf Oysters
- Blackened Pasta
- Provencal Chicken
- A Wine Bar
Not all of these items are available at all locations, so if you are set on an Avocado Tuna Appetizer, for instance, you will want to make sure it is offered at the location that you will be visiting.
A couple of the other extras at Puckett's Restaurant & Grocery is a breakfast menu, and live entertainment daily.
Jack Cawthon of Jack's Barbeque has a history in the food industry that goes back to 1976, when he was just out of high school. It was 1989 that he opened Jack's Riverfront Bar-B-Que. He now has 3 locations and has shortened the name to Jack's Barbeque.
Jack's, as you would expect, specializes in Barbecue, but what he does that is a little different is that you can order your items in a sandwich, a jumbo sandwich, a plate, in family size meals, or by the pound. At Jack's they serve barbecued:
- Tennessee Port Shoulder
- Texas Beef Brisket
- Smoked Boston Turkey
- Smoked Texas Sausage
- St. Louis Style Ribs
- and Smoked Chicken
They also have a catering menu and a bulk order menu. The Trinity Lane location offers a convenient drive-up window
East Nashville Farmer's Market
I Dream of Weenie
I Dream of Weenie specializes in weenies with, as the name suggests, a playful twist. Look at some of the items on their menu:
- My Big Fat Greek Weenie
- Frank and to the Point
- Flamin' Frank
- and for Sunday Brunch they offer a French Toast Weenie
All of the weenies can be beef, turkey or tofu. They are grilled and served on a fresh baked bun.
Merchants Restaurant on Broadway has an extensive beverage menu. Along with beer and wine, they have a list of drinks called “Tennessee's Own”. There are also house drinks, classic cocktails and soft drinks.
Their starter menu features such things as Duck Fat Tater Tots and Fried Green Tomatoes., but don't get the idea that everything here is exotic and/or southern. They also feature soups, salads, burgers and Fried chicken. We hope that you love the Dining Scene in Nashville Tennessee as much as we do.
