I don't care what anyone else says... I have been to 49 of the 50 states and I attempt, whenever I can. to seek out the spots that are as locally authentic as possible. I LOVED this place.

The food was good but our waitress was great. She kept the coffee coming and called my gal "baby"! how can you beat that?????? Lots of food too.. none of it good for me

Half the people in the place had just come from church, locals... Sunday best, fabulous.

I left that place looking for the roto rooter man to clear my arteries and couldn't have been more pleased to find the place.

I didn't peer into the kitchen.. I don't care. Go to Dotson's and if you don't like it... then stop travelling.. stop eating too. Go to a mall and eat there.. or Mickey D's, Cracker Barrel. ick!

We visited Dotson's early on a saturday morn in sept 2006 and we really felt that Dotson's did a great job. The Waitress was very polite and was cheerful. Things like that serve to make a breakfast worth remembering. Thanks Barbie for the great service. The food is above average for this type of place and everything arrived on time and hot. I did take several photos if you care to view them.

This is a down home place and has been in this spot for over 60 years. One table was filled with the local police and most of the others were locals who knew a good breakfast. I did peek into the kitchen and it surely could use a good cleaning however.

This is not your typical fast food restaurant and is worth consideration..

If you want good home cooking, don't miss this place. It has the world's best Fried Chicken. I visit this place EVERY time we come to Nashville. Wouldn't miss it.
