The Tennessean Truck Stop, located at Interstate 65 (Exit 22) at Cornersville TN, is Home of the World Famous "Pops BBQ!" When we arrived on an early Saturday afternoon, mainly to get some gasoline and a quick bite to eat, the place was bustling. I enjoy truck stops because the food is usually good, and the service quick, friendly with... More

Really enjoyed the place. Great, fast service of drinks and food. The burgers are huge and the bbq is off the chain! Has several types of bbq and sides!

This is a country food type of establishment. They have a regular menu, buffet and specials every evening. They also have a great breakfast buffet for those who are visiting in the morning. The atmosphere is much like a cracker barrel and the staff is extremely friendly.

We stopped here on the way to Nashville. Buffet was pretty good according to family. My patty melt was good, but I'm pretty sure it just had regular toast instead of rye break. Service was also good. I'd come again if we're passing through.

I was driving along I-65 and saw the sign for this place. It was lunchtime and I love southern BBQ, so I stopped and got a pulled pork sandwich and some onion rings. WAY better than I expected from a truck stop restaurant. And the sweet and spicy sauce was perfect (it was not spicy to me, but I've been... More

Marshall County loves The Tennessean Truck Stop. Along with out of town passing byers and truck drivers. This place has been around for years. It's not much to look at. Nothing fancy. However, you will find a variety of hot tasty options here. Can get busy at times since it is located right off I65. Very much worth the stop.... More

We were not expecting much from a truck stop. This place was quite awesome (for a truck stop). We had the buffet for $8.50 (no typo, it was cheap). Food was constantly restocked and nice and hot. Ribs were nice and juicy, fried chicken was really nice, a large variety with the salad bar and the hot sides. The strawberry... More

We stopped here based on the reviews. There is abuffet , with a lare array of canned vegetables, instant mashed potatoes, and what tased like canned gravy. If you order off the menu, you can have a salad from the "cold bar", along with soup. The salad bar had a good selection of fresh veggies, and icecream and pudding. The... More

When we pulled up to this place we didn't know which door to go into. When you get inside you don't know which cash register to go to and the food is strangely separated from the drinks. Looks nice on the outside and is pretty clean on the inside but very awkward shopping experience...
