Nashville is my favorite weekend getaway. I absolutely love it!
There is so much to do and so many great places to eat!
We went up to Nasville for my birthday a couple of weekends ago and had a great time.
We hit up some of our favorite spots and tried some new places too.
I want to share some of our favorite places we’ve visited on our many trips to the Music City.
Burger Up has 2 locations.
We ate at Cool Springs location since it was on our way into town.
It was crazy delicious!
I got the Woodstock – Benton’s bacon, white cheddar and jack daniels maple ketchup.
Chicken Legs got the Mint Lamb Burger – mint sauce, arugula, goat cheese, marinated tomato and grilled onions.
We both loved our burgers.
The burgers come with unlimited fries.
I would never be able to eat a second cup of fries, but if you can it is free!
I can’t wait to eat here again!
Did you know that Nashville has a craft distillery?
Corsair has a second location in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
The Nashville location provides the setting for brewing all of the whiskey mash for Corsair’s traditional and experimental whiskeys.
We took a
of the distillery. They told us how they make the whiskey and vodka.
Everything is hand-made. They even place the labels on the bottles by hand.
They have a distillery cat! You know I loved that! Looked like a short-hair Fluffy.
After the tour there is a tasting. We tasted everything – it was good, but strong!
I bought a bottle of vanilla vodka. It is great in diet coke.
No trip to Nashville is complete without a stop at the Pancake Pantry.
They have the best pancakes around!
The line always wraps around the corner, but it moves fast.
They have free coffee near the front door while you wait.
If you have a big group keep in mind that they won’t seat you until your whole party is there.
Some of our favorites are:
Pigs in a Blanket
Bar-B-Cutie has been around since 1950.
They have been voted best BBQ in Nashville 4 years in a row.
We stopped in on our way into town and tried it out.
It was good. We started with some fried pickles. You can’t go wrong with fried pickles.
The pulled pork was tender and delicious.
I got the BBQ chicken. YUM!
The sides were also great. I especially loved the corn cakes.
Rotier’s is another Nashville institution.
It has been around since 1945.
The interior hasn’t changed – probably ever.
It is like stepping back in time.
Rotier’s is know for it’s burgers.
You have to get the burger on french bread. It is great!
Chicken Legs tried the Patty Melt on one visit. It is good, but not as good as the french bread burger.
Rotier’s is old school at its best!
I have been dying to try Martin’s ever since I saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
It definitely lived up to the hype!
Chicken Legs tried the brisket. It was SO good. Super tender and juicy. I am getting it next time.
I got the famous “Redneck Taco” – pulled chicken on a corn bread hoe cake.
On Saturday and Sunday, Martin’s does a whole hog.
They started pulling the meat while we were there. SO neat!
It takes 22-26 hours for the hog to cook. They put one on Friday afternoon and another one on Saturday afternoon. Mental note – go for dinner on Saturday or Sunday.
F. Scott’s is a restaurant and jazz bar. It is our favorite spot to have a cocktail when we are in Nashville. We love the live jazz and the drinks are great.
Chicken Legs has eaten here many time and highly recommends the lamb burger.
F. Scott’s is moving from their current Green Hills location later this year.
They are going to be the restaurant in the Homewood Suites in West End.
We are hoping they don’t lose the ambiance of the current location.
Morton’s is my favorite steak place.
I love sitting in the bar and eating some of the bar bites.
My favorite cocktail is the “Morton’s Champagne Cocktail”. It is sparkling wine blended with PAMA pomegranate liqueur and Grand Marnier, finished with a cinnamon sugar rim
We usually start off with a crab cake – it is all crab, no fillers. Delicious.
Their bread is also fantastic! Love the big fat onion roll.
Chicken Legs got the lamb chops this time. He ate every last bite!
I got the Petite Filet Mignon Sandwiches off the Bar Bites Menu. They are the best!
We got a side of Twice Baked Au Gratin Potatoes. I love these potatoes!
No meal at Morton’s is complete without Morton’s Legendary Hot Chocolate Cake.
It is an ooey gooey lava cake.
I have the recipe for this. I will be making it soon.
We have several more trips to Nashville planned this year.
What is your favorite place to eat in Nashville? I need suggestions!
