Simply one of the best!

If you’re in Nashville Monday through Friday for lunch – get over to Arnold’s. Everything here is amazing! There’s usually a line (which is always a good sign). I recommend EVERYTHING. WARNING: YOU HAVE TO PAY TO PARK HERE

this little Restaurant is a must-go spot if visiting Nashville for GOOD, oh yeah, REALLY GOOD food. We went on the day that they featured pork belly on the menu with cheesy grits. This was amazing! The pork belly was slightly sweet, with a crunchy top crust, and then you cut into a tender, moist salty bite of perfection. The... More

My oh my.....you gotta try this place. Nothing fancy on the outside but full of flavor on the inside. Don't be afraid to sit by strangers because you just might have to, this place fills up fast. Very best fried green tomatoes I've ever had, the greens, beef tips and rice also yummy. Lots of locals visit this place so... More

I'm a Nashville native. We used to have spots like this all over town and they are, unfortunately, a dying breed. Arnold's is consistently great. When I want to remember what lunch after church on Sunday used to taste like I go to Arnold's. But don't go on the weekend because they're not open!

Whether you are a local or just visiting, Arnold's is a must visit restaurant in Nashville. Besides the Pie Wagon, Arnold's is my favorite Meat & Three! Like my title says, it's just plain good eating!

And I couldn't have chosen a better spot! My smarty pants boyfriend chose meat and two, but I am a purest. Yep couldn't finish it all (Plus I got the chocolate cream pie). We both got the roast beef and he helped me with my fried green tomatoes. The turnip greens were fantastic. I found the roast slightly on the... More

Food was just ok not sure what the hype is. Line was out the door when we got there and food was not worth it. Went with three other people all agreed not good. Personally would have rather eaten at cracker barrell or another southern food restaurant.

A good sign of any restaurant is when the lunch line is out the door...and of course the lunch line was out the door when we visited this week. Hard to get a seat, but people were so friendly, that it all worked out for the best. Mighty good eating.
