Every trip up/down I-65 finds us stopping here at The Tennessean Truckstop; easy on-off the freeway; good parking; clean restrooms; terrific breakfasts 24/7 can't be beat; good coffee; smiling wait staff; lunch buffet ok but we prefer the breakfasts. Large connected store for anything you might want to purchase for your trip. We never bypass this place.

I was coming north on I65 and saw a billboard for this place. My travel mates didn't want diner so I grabbed a bbq sandwich from the heated case in the store. I didn't use any of the many fixings they had. After first bite I was disappointed that I didn't get two for $5.49. Meat was nicely smoked, even... More

We decided to try The Tennessean tonight as we were passing through the area headed to Nashville. Not fancy, but nice and clean. Good buffet with meats and veggies, salad bar with lots of items on it, and then ice cream for desert. Reasonable price for all the above. $15.00 ea with tea and tax included. We travel a lot,...

The staff was friendly and the service was prompt by the food wasn't anything great. My dad had all you can eat fried catfish but it was mostly breading... I had ribs with sweet BBQ sauce.!they were tough and upset my stomach later in the night...? Cornbread wasn't great either. Not a bad "road" meal but not great either.

I live close to this restaurant and go there 3 or 4 times a month. Some days are better than others. Both buffet and menu items are available. Service is very good with friendly waitresses who work hard to keep customers happy. It is a very busy restaurant so food on buffet is emptied and refilled frequently. Both salad bar... More

I was excited to find a restaurant super close to I-65 that makes most everything from scratch. I had the fried catfish with mashed potatoes & it was delicious. They do their own breading (no MSG!!!😎) Will definitely stop there again!

Amazing truck stop. I would say one of my favorite places now. They have a place where you can let you're dogs run. Store is really cute and the restaurant has great food! I couldn't believe 2 people ate a great meal and it came up to $15.70.
