Food Lover’s Guide to Nashville

Food Lover’s Guide to Nashville

Nashville has quickly become a culinary capital of the South in recent years, with countless restaurants serving traditional and modern Southern fare with a Tennessee twist. Here are a few foods and activities that will make your taste buds sing during your stay in Music City.

Must-Try Dishes

Kick off your day of sightseeing and gastronomy with a hearty breakfast—in Nashville, that likely includes scratch biscuits and country ham. While fried chicken is a staple throughout the South, Nashville has put a fiery twist on it with their signature hot chicken, made with plenty of cayenne pepper. Another hearty option, popular at lunch, is what’s known locally as a meat-and-three : typically meatloaf, brisket, ham, or country-fried steak with three veggies on the side. Thirsty travelers shouldn’t miss the chance to sample some sweet tea or a craft cocktail made with Tennessee whiskey.

Must-Do Experiences

  • Take your taste buds for a ride on a food and sightseeing bus tour of Nashville and its dining scene.

  • Learn about the history of Music City while sampling tasty local specialties in the historic riverfront area.

  • Indulge your love of two classics—beer and BBQ—with a local foodie guide.

  • Explore Nashville’s burgeoning craft beer scene with tastings at three area breweries.

  • Get insider tips on the best places to eat and drink from an in-the-know local.

  • Listen to live music while sipping local whiskey at a renowned honky-tonk.
