We all have to eat, right? We could go on for days about all the great food in Nashville, but this list is distilled down to best of the best.




A trendy hangout featuring New American cuisine, cocktails & bowling in an industrial-chic space. You can't go wrong with a Bloody Maria and a "Have It Your Way" breakfast. Go for the Eggs, Bacon and Hash Browns!


Calling all early risers. This is the place for you. A Nashville tradition that almost always has a line, even when it opens at 6am! Loved by both locals and tourists, this is a must on your visit. They even have a camera with a live feed showing you how long the line is. If you make it through the line, order  the Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pancakes. Hmmmmm!




WARNING!! This Chicago style pizza will kill your hunger. For real. The only place in Nashville to get an authentic Chicago style pizza will not let you down. If you're not afraid of a little meat then try The Capone deep dish pizza. We guarantee you'll be leaving with some to go slices. 


When you think of Nashville food "Hot Chicken" always comes up. Chances are if you asked 10 people where their favorite hot chicken place is you will get 10 different answers. Our favorite is Party Fowl. No doubt, you have to get the chicken tenders. I like the southern fried style and Kendall goes with mild heat. We always wash it down with some Kentucky Bourbon Ale beers.




City House is the best place for dinner in Nashville. Hands down. Everything from drinks to dessert is top notch. All the staff are knowledgeable and cool! It doesn’t hurt that the owner is a James Beard Award winner, either!


If you love meat and margaritas then look no further. Butchertown Hall is known for their smoky meats and cool drinks. Kendall and I start off with their queso or guac, with a couple of margaritas. Kendall always gets the Mezcal margarita which has an extra smoky flavor. We suggest ordering the Brisket Tacos as your main course. You won't be disappointed!


A locally owned pizza joint that is too cool for school. It has quickly gained popularity because of its great food, beer, and atmosphere. Everyone here is friendly and the unique vibe can't be found anywhere else. If you’re in a hurry, get there early to avoid the line!
