“Best comfort food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

If your looking for southern comfort food you have to go to loveless cafe, their biscuits are amazing ( and I usually skip the biscuits). Great BBQ and fried chicken. The wait was over two hours so we ordered to go and ate outside in the picnic tables. It's definitely worth e wait but I was hungry that day.

“Great Southern Food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is the second time I have visited the Legendary Loveless Cafe.
It has never disappointed.
The fod and the service are second to none. The fried Chicken is to die for. The homemade sides ar amazing. The people are friendly and kind.
Check this joint out! it is worth driving a few miles out of the way to eat here.

“Yummy!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

The biscuits really are yummy! I love the preserves they serve with the biscuits. The people are so nice there. If you go on a weekend morning, make sure you go early or be willing to wait. We went on a Sunday morning and was told a 2hr wait. I expected it (since we got there around prime-breakfast time of 10:00 a.m.), but my husband didn't. Luckily we were able to go back during the week, and I'm glad we did. If you're ever in Nashville.....it's worth the trip!

“Kinda touristy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

They have pretty good food but it is a little too much of a tourist attraction for me. If you live in a location where you don't have access to a Southern style diner then you would appreciate it but if you are a native Southerner you may agree with me.
