Being a local and living downtown, it's good to have a late night option for food. However, I have finally had enough of putting up with a waitress that has a horrible attitude and, it's not only every once in a while, but EVERY time. If she hates her job this much, you'd think she would go somewhere else or... More

Their shirt says it all, "sobering up Nashville since ~1995" From William hung on the jukebox to an all restaurant sing along of Baby by Justin Beiber this place never ceases to put a smile on my face! And the food is great and cheap too!

Went to eat here after a show at the Ryman! Felt like I went back in time. This place opens at ten...when most of Nashville's restaurants are closing. The patty melt was awesome! We found out about this place from locals hanging out on Broadway! Glad we found this place! When we were leaving the place was packed!

I asked for a simple breakfast of pancakes and over medium eggs. The purpose of getting eggs over medium is the richness of the yolk...well two of the yolks were broke, the other had runny whites and they were all COLD! The pancakes were thick enough to choke a horse. The coffee was good and the waitress did try to... More

Awesome corned beef hash and home fries. Amazing atmosphere. Reminds me of so many late night diners I spent time at in college. Super friendly and thankful staff. Delicious, fast, great value. Highly recommend.

Our group of 4 decided at the last minute to try this place based on Yelp reviews. We love off the beaten path, eclectic places and this certainly did not disappoint! The atmosphere is very laid back, Southern charm. I sampled biscuits and gravy, the Southern fried chicken sandwich, fries, and a hamburger. All were fantastic and served up by... More

Had breakfast here and found the food and service to be great. Kind of like a throwback to the simpler life. Yes, we will return.

Was a great diner dive without the drive in or barbecue serving late night breakfast after bar hopping til just before sunrise. But one of those reality makeover tv shows attacked last October and in realtor parlance, "updated" the decor and homogenized the joint as part of the Nashville gentrification project. Food is still great and the bathroom retains it's... More

Great clean diner! The food was great - we had French toast - and the atmosphere was family like! Ms TT and her crew not only provided us great food but treated us like we were regulars, even gave us sample of her Salisbury steak, which she was serving for lunch. The banter among staff and some of the regulars... More

We had the chicken fried steak, eggs and bacon with biscuit and gravy, and pancakes with sausage. The food was excellent, the portions were big, and the service was great. When a song came on the jukebox the waitstaff liked, they joined right in, followed by some of the guests. As it says on the door - Cash Only they... More
