My husband and I visited Arnold’s at the recommendation of our Lyft driver, a Nashville native. We waited in line for about 35 minutes, which is fairly common as I understand it, but it’s cafeteria-style so the line does move pretty quickly. While this is...More

The food was pretty good overall. Almost everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. This is cafeteria style food and waiting line is long. Most of the staff is friendly. It has quite a following among the locals so it must be consistently good.

We got in line right before closing time. They were out of a couple of things (meatloaf) but we had chicken and dumplings that were delicious. You order cafeteria style. A meat with 3 sides is $10.99. We all loved our food. The ice machine...More

Been here twice while traveling and both times I've been shocked by how friendly the staff is, how efficient the service is and how delicious the food is. It's busy but that's half the fun. Would go there everyday if I could.

Are you tired of boring mediocre and bland lunches? I personally guarantee you will not be disappointed at Arnold’s. The roast beef, mashed potatoes and green beans are the absolute best I have ever had. You will love it and Arnold’s will make you love...More

Not sure, but you could look them up and call them to be sure. It more like a food bar you decide which items you want any they put them on a plate for you. The food is really good.
