My wife and I were returning from a trip and decided to drive by Bellbuckle, Tennessee to eat at the Bellbuckle Cafe. We arrive at 1:30 on Sunday thinking that we would be on the backside of the Sunday rush. We still had to wait 45 minutes for a table. When we finally got a table, I decided to order the meatloaf lunch with the logic that meatloaf in a country style restaurant would be really good. How wrong I was. The meatloaf came out in pieces and was so greasy that I could hardly eat it. Apparently it was last in the pan and they had to dip it out with the grease. i asked my wife to taste it, and she agreed. She ordered a grilled chicken salad which was fine. A restaurant has to try really hard to not serve a good grilled chicken salad. We were nice and not upset but when we told the waitress, her comment was to complain at the register.
We only live about 15 miles from the restaurant; however, we will never return. I recommend that if in the area that you go to Miller's Grocery in Christiana, TN or even Cracker Barrell for "country cooking". Both are much better than Bellbuckle Cafe.
