There are two locations for B&C BBQ, this location in Melrose on Franklin Rd, and the original location in the Farmer's Market. The catering arm uses the full name of Bacon & Caviar. I live near Melrose so I've visited this location most frequently.
First, the meat: In addition to the pulled pork you would expect to find in a Tennessee BBQ joint, they also offer beef brisket, chicken, and turkey. On Fri, Sat, Sun they have ribs, and on Wed & Fri they do a smoked salmon; on Saturday they also have smoked bologna! This is real deal barbecue ... the pork is moist and tender with the right amount of smoke. It does NOT come slathered with sauce -- it is actually good enough to eat plain, or there are a variety of sauces available at a condiment stand so you can pick your own poison. You can get a plate, a sandwich, or buy by the pound.
As good as the barbeque is, what makes B&C stand out to me are the sides. While there are those BBQ restaurant standbys of potato salad, cole slaw, and white beans, there's so much more. Certain items are nearly always available, and some rotate in and out, but there are always plenty to choose from and none are boring. They always have their garlic cheese grits, plus another grits dish-of-the-day. In addition to the grits, some of my favorites are the squash casserole (one of the best I've had in Nashville) and corn pudding. One word of warning: The sides are served from a steam-table set-up, and most of the time they are fine. Occasionally, though, I've been served something that had been out a little too long; the grits especially can suffer from this. So just take a peek at the items you'd like to order before you commit, even ask for a taste if you're not sure.
In addition, there are several appetizers (including smoked/fried wings, fried pickles, and BBQ pork eggrolls) and desserts available, as well as beer. Everything is made from scratch, in-house. The atmosphere is super-casual, service is friendly, and they are the most reasonably priced for the quality that I know of.
There are other BBQ spots in town and the metro area that get more hype, but B&C is in my personal Top Two for pulled pork & sides. It's a shame it is buried here on the rankings on TA, because either location is certainly worth a visit.
