This is a MUST if you want a true experience of Tennessee! Enjoy the "pickin'" of acoustical string instruments every Thursday evening at The Casey Jones Village! Totally Free! (How rare is this?!) You may experience this music both indoors and outdoors! Several small clusters of The Jackson Plectral Society play every Thursday evening. I personally enjoy having some ice... More

Very good, if you get there at lunch the price is even better. Real southern cooking, they make something like a bread pancake on the grill in front of you. the salad is very good, they have fresh fruit, so were the ribs and the chicken. Go hungry !

We have passed by so many times on our Tennessee travels. This time, we decided to stop and take a driving break. The museum was not bad if you enjoy local history and are a train enthusiast. I can remember the television show "Casey Jones" from the 1950's which was loosely based on the real-life Casey Jones. The country restaurant... More

I spent much longer here than anticipated and it turned out to be disappointing. I arrived at 1 pm and had to wait half an hour for a table for lunch because a tour group had reservations--for 8 bus loads of people. While I waited in line with about a dozen other people, bus after bus arrived with people bypassing... More

I was taken here on my travel through this region to see the little old town and train village. The old store fronts were nice to see and there were some trains on display on the property. A train hotel, the Casey Jones museum, restaurant, home, church and an old country store restaurant. I went into the lobby of the... More

I have stopped here for years as I travel down I-40 between Memphis and Nashville. I think the cost of $15 (w/o a beverage) is a bit pricy, however, the food did not disappoint. Classic Southern/Soul food. Yum!
