This great place is well worth the wait for a quick yet very tasty bbq! Don't be intimidated by the lineups....it moves fast and there is additional seating upstairs and outside. We both had the Tennessee pulled pork shoulder sandwich. The sides didn't look too appealing to me ( over cooked beans, coleslaw, Mac n cheese) so I just had... More

Very casual place -- you order your food through a line, Boston Market style, pick your meat and choose your sides. Highlight is choice of three types of meat and choice of two vegetable or mac and cheese type sides; sticky cornbread. Then use (self-serve) choice of three different barbecue sauces (or try all three). Sit at a picnic-bench style... More

Although we had to stand in line, the food was worth it. i ordered beef brisket, it was still moist and not dry and tough at all.

Simple and fun. Great BBQ in a great location. We have visited on our last three trips to Nashville and tried something different each time. Consistently good and full of flavor. See you next trip!!

Don't miss out on this great BBQ place! Best BBQ place in town! Lots of great selections to choose from! Just a heads up, the beans are spicy. A must go to place before leaving Bashbille. Make sure to go around 3:00 PM for the optimum experience.

try to get there a little early if you want to eat lunch. The line quickly grows after 11:30. Convenient location to walk to if you're downtown. This place has good solid BBQ. The ribs were especially good as was the chicken.

I loved the BBQ Turkey. I had BBQ Pulled pork the night before, so the turkey was a wonderful change. We were there last Saturday, about 12:30. We only waited about 20 minutes before we reached the counter. When we finished the line was a block and a half long. We really enjoyed it. Try the baked apples as your... More

The BBQ is excellent as advertised. Friendly staff and convenient for foot-weary tourists. Desserts were also good. Relatively small seating capacity so plan to visit a little early or after the noon rush.

Enticed after reading a blog. What can I say - it is a cafeteria and food is sadly mediocre. We were really disappointed as we hoped to finish with a good impression of a short visit to Nashville.
