Travel Tips for Nashville Foodies: 6 Places to Visit for Food Loving Travelers

By    |   Tuesday, 13 Jan 2015 12:22 PM

Nashville is not only home to some of the nation's greatest musicians, it has a burgeoning foodie scene that includes everything from barbecue and hot chicken to great Italian and haute cuisine all served up with Southern hospitality.

One travel tip for food lovers is to take advantage of Nashville Music City's dining tour package deals. These deals include a walking food tour and a "neighborhood foodie" package that lets travelers "step away from the tourist areas and discover the reason why Nashville was named one of the 'Top Ten Hottest Travel Destinations for Food.'"

Here are six more tips for Nashville foodies:

1. Arnold's Country Kitchen: This classic "meat and three" gets rave reviews for its fried green tomatoes and other Southern fare. "Owners Jack and Rose Arnold have been serving country music stars, downtown workers, and ordinary folk in their little red restaurant for 27 years," says Southern Living. Also recommended is the "creamiest banana pudding you'll ever eat."

2. Jack's Bar-B-Cue: With three locations in Nashville, Jack's serves up "pork shoulder, Texas beef brisket, smoked Boston turkey, Texas sausage, St. Louis style ribs, smoked chicken, and other Southern cuisine." Jack's has its own award-winning famous sauces and caters to "world and local renowned dignitaries and to ordinary folks!"

3. Loveless Cafe: According to Thrillist, "This legendary Highway 100 diner sets the standard for Southern homestyle fare, with loads of tantalizing options like country ham, grits, okra, chicken biscuits, catfish, and pork chops." Located in Southwest Nashville, the Loveless Cafe is known as one of the best brunch spots and is well worth the drive.

4. The Southern Steak and Oyster: According to Gayot, "The first thing you should know about The Southern Steak & Oyster is that when it comes to steak, you’re the boss. You have the option of selecting not just how you want it cooked, but how thick it is, plus what part of the cow it comes from."

5. Mangia Nashville: This Italian restaurant is off the beaten path and offers an authentic New York Style Italian family dining experience. The fixed price for a five-course dinner, which includes antipasti, insalata, risotto, entrees, and desert, is $50. Mangia offers "Great food, music, and friends, both new and old. It's dinner with the family... All the food, yelling and guilt you can stand!" A travel tip for foodies: Reservations are a must!

6. Prince's Hot Chicken Shack: This iconic Nashville restaurant is known for its deep fried spicy chicken. Even the mild version is spicy. Food and Wine writes, "Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack is a nothing-special storefront in a lackluster section of Music City, but the nuclear-red chicken breast is the stuff daredevil legends are made of. Hot is the biggest understatement in the 615 area code. Prince’s cayenne kick is enough to warrant bringing a gallon of milk."
