Imagine going to Grandmas for lunch!!! A little country house (I passed it even using my gps) that looks quaint & inviting. A small hot bar with two servers standing behind it waiting on you to come in & deliver your food selections (made from the white board beside it). Plenty of choices of southern comfort food ready to be... More

Nice little place hidden from the main road. Some good country food. A meat and veggies place. Took $20 for 2 people so just a little high but the servings are big you will get full. We both got a meat and 2 vegetables. They filled the plate up with each item big spoon full. No fountain drinks just cans... More

First time visitors. The positives...the chicken and dressing and the meatloaf were tasty. Unfortunately everything else was average at best. Also, there were fans sitting on the floor (blowing air towards food, etc) that along with the ceiling fans looked like they had layers of dirt and dust. Won't be visiting again.

If you want to enjoy a homestyle meat and three meal like you were in someone's home, this is it! The best chicken and dressing and banana pudding I have ever eaten! I can not believe we have lived in Nashville all these years and have never been, sad to think of all the meals we missed. This will be... More

We stumbled upon Cal's Country Kitchen after looking for a quick lunch place on Yelp. The place is a bit off the beaten path and is located in a house type building. It's almost like cafeteria style where you get a tray and tell them which foods you want and they put in on your plate and then you pay... More

I ordered the chicken and dressing with turnip greens and sweet potatoes. I also got some banana pudding. It is so good. I've lived in the area forever, but never knew about the place. They do get a lot of business. It didn't take long to get in and out.

This cafeteria style meat and three seems to be very popular with the locals. It is ok but there are much better choices close by. I think the prices were too high for the small portions I received. On the plus side, lots of items to pick from and service is very friendly.

If you are into fine dining go somewhere else, this is somewhat of a dive. One side of the converted house has boarded windows but I have found in my lifetime that dives have the BEST food. It is bright inside from all the windows. Everything is great here except the deviled eggs. Of course all reviews are subjective -... More
