I heard that the Meat & Three is a Nashville staple, so of course I had to make the trip to Arnold's. I went around noon and there was a small line but it moved quickly. The food was great! I had such a hard time deciding what to get. The fried green tomatoes and the corn bread were the... More

This was the first place we stopped at after getting off the plane. We got there around 1130 and the line was pretty short. We were starving and excited to eat after reading all the reviews. Either our expectations were too high or the food really wasn't impressive. We got the roast beef, country fried steak, turnip greens, mac and... More

Arrive before 11:30 or after 1:30 to avoid standing in line. But then the wait is well worth the fabulous food! best Roast beef ever with other daily specials, very creative in addition to good ole southern style cuisine.

The service here is wonderful. I definitely felt at home, and was treated like family soon as I arrived. Outside the place looks very small, and inside not much different. However, all the good things you've already read are true! The food is wonderful. I had the roast beef, creamed corn, fired green tomatoes, and a hoe cake! All the... More

We got to Arnold´s five minutes after open and we only had a short wait, by the time we left the line was out the door. Food was good. The desserts were AMAZING, the chocolate pie is a must. Don't forget the sweet tea either! We only had a half day in Nashville and I am so glad we were... More

Visited Arnold's on 12/23/14 with the family and the food was fantastic! The entire family enjoyed the food. The hot pepper chocolate pie was great to finish things off. The next time we are in Nashville, this will be on our list of places to eat.

If you're trying to decide if you should eat here: DO IT. Classic meat and three diner focusing on southern comfort foods. The turnip greens and green beans are the best I have ever tried. The roast beef was expertly cooked and seasoned. The fried chicken had just the right amount of crust and spice to it. Everything we tried... More

You will have to stand in line for your food, but it adds to the whole ambience of the place. All home cooked southern fare...the fried green tomatoes were the best I've tasted. Don't miss it on your visit to Nashville.

Arnold's is one of the oldest and best places to eat in the city. Wonderful meat and vegetables like Momma used to cook! Go!

Arnold's is amazing. Simply amazing. The line was about 30 feet OUTSIDE the door! It was worth the wait. We were there with 5 in our party. We all had a wonderful experience. My favorite was the amazing turnip greens! I had 2 portions! The corn pudding was right behind the greens. The food is consistently great. The portions are... More
