Wonderful southern cuisine

We had a lunch at Arnold's. After a line of half an hour we had a self service stile restaurant. We ate roastbeff, Mac and cheese, fried catfish, green fried tomatoes and iced tea. All was magnificent and it really worth the line. The price was 20 $ and we had no problem to digest everything. We... read more

We were told to order meat an 3 ya'll. It was like a cafeteria line. You get your tray and you get behind the person in front of you. You order as you go. The food was ok. Glad I went but not sure if I would go back if I ever visited nashville again.

Loved the food! It was our number one place out of all the places we ate in Nashville. Loved the squash casserole! Roast beef was awesome and so tender. Had chocolate pie and it tasted just like my granny's. Lots of great food for a good price.

We had a great experience on a Thursday (each day of the week has different options). The food was excellent. All the meats we tried were very good and so were the side dishes. We wanted to try pie, but by the time we finished our lunch the line was out the door. Definitely get there before noon to beat... More

This is a small restaurant not far from the convention center. We did wait in line for lunch BUT the line moved quickly. It's a serving line with good ole country cookin. The roast beef was delicious. Some of the best turnip greens and corn bread I've had. Friendly staff. Clean, even though a TON of people were coming and... More

So I don't want to leave this review because that means more people will end up going to Arnold's, resulting in even longer lines, but I have to be honest here.... I dream of their roast beef. It is so tender and juicy and perfectly cooked. Everything else I have eaten here has also been amazing. Obviously it's not the... More

Tasty meat & three options. Cafeteria-style line service combined with typically long queues. Killer good peach cream pie in summer!
