A friend and I will be flying down to Nashville this Saturday to watch the Lions play the Titans on Sunday. We will be there until monday evening, does anyone know of any good places to hit while we are down there? We plan to go to the Jack Daniels distillery, but what about eating some good food? Thanks...

    I haven't been down there in years and certainly before I started making my own so my critique might be different today - but I enjoyed Jack's quite a bit. Very good ribs.

  • You do know that the Jack Daniels distillery is a pretty long haul from Nashville don't you? It will be a pretty drive, but it's close to an hour and a half each way.  

    I have never eaten BBQ in Nashville, so I can't comment on that.  

    There are a lot of bars to go to on 2nd or Broadway, and there is also Printer's Alley.  I like The Stage and Tootsies the best for music, but there are plenty of great places to go for that.

  • My buddy said we are staying right downtown by the stadium. I guess there are lots of bars.

    This is the place.  Worth the effort to get there.  Located in Nolensville which is a bedroom community just south of Nashville.

    Having just eaten there within the last two weeks, I highly second this recommendation.  Beautiful country drive to get there wasn't bad either.  Very cool place.  Loved this picture hanging above their register...the title was "Pig Sexy".

    I don't know about BBQ, but going out in downtown Nashville to the country bars (which are in endless supply and all within walking distance of each other) is about as much fun as someone should be allowed to have. I have had some serious fun there. Good stuff.

  • I have to second or third Martin's, it is worth the short drive.  They don't do whole hogs all the time, during the week they use shoulders only but it is still excellent.  I make it a point to go by Martin's whenever I have business trips to Nashville. 

    I have never had their brisket yet but the pulled pork is very good, wings are good, and the redneck taco is a must try.

  • Sounds great! saturday dinner will be at martins for sure.

    I've done it and It's really cool. the weird thing is though, it's in a dry county and you can't get a sip of JD anywhere on the premisis. would be much better if you could do a tasting like on most tours. Check your inbox BTW

  • K, will do.

  • Jack's downtown is just OK in my opinion.  It is more for tourists than anything.

    There are some great BBQ joints in the Nashville area:
    Whitt's BBQ

    Enjoy Nashville!  It is a great city!

    Was in Nashville two weeks ago and ate at the downtown Jack's.  Not as good as what you will do on your own egg but a fun place.  After that go to Broardway Brewhouse.  Over 70 beers on tap.
    When in doubt add more pepper.

  • Broadway Brew house was cool, Tootsies was awesome, we didn't bother with Jack's. On the way to the Jack Daniels Distillery we stopped at Martins BBQ Joint and it was good stuff. The brisket literally couldn't even be picked up with a fork because it would fall apart, I ate it with a spoon! Everything was to die for there. I had the ribs dry rub Memphis style and enjoyed them. For sure a place to try if you go there, and I will go back there to get the brisket for sure. All bars were shoulder to shoulder as there was a Zac Brown Band concert and the Lions Titans game while we were there. Great place to see, clean city, will certainly go back again!

  • Thanks to all for their input, there are places that we saw that aren't pictured. I would recommend this city to anyone looking for a good time.
