We made another stop by one of our favorite hot dog places while we were in the area, and while the weather kept us from enjoying a walk in the park after we finished, at least we could shop for records and books as well.
This small chain recently opened its fourth location in the Scenic City’s busy downtown. We found some pretty good barbecue here, but it was outshined by something else on the menu…
We were not able to make it to this very popular restaurant on our way home from Evansville, so it went to the top of the list when we got away the next weekend.
In November, we spent a couple of days sampling more places in Kentucky than we have ever visited before. On the way there, we met friends for dinner at one of the Music CIty’s oldest restaurants.
Two years ago, I stopped by the first location of this popular barbecue restaurant. We finished up this day trip to the Scenic City by driving north of town to sample their second store.
Another short trip to the Scenic City found us starting our day at this 97 year-old icon, where the sassy service is as memorable as the hamburgers and roast beef plates.
As I realized that I wasn’t going to make it to the final stop that I’d planned for in Chattanooga in time, I detoured to a beloved and ramshackle sandwich shop that I noticed earlier this year.
An early morning, and a sensible sobriety in front of one’s offspring, kept us from drinking and dancing here, but it looks like this place in Donelson is a fine one to spend many happy hours into the night.
The Music City is known for its hot chicken, but we took a break from shopping to sample another local specialty: hot fish.
Just north of Nashville, our second stop of the trip was at a very good barbecue joint that is celebrating its fiftieth anniversary this year.
For Circumnavigation # 6, I tossed out the rule book, brought my daughter along and spent a day in Tennessee. Our first stop was a late breakfast at a totally groovy sandwich shop in the Scenic City, man.
The Scenic City is a long way from Jacksonville, so what are northeast Florida’s signature sandwiches and drinks doing in this small chain here?
After lots of fun in Coolidge Park, we visited two new-to-us places for snacks, and I was charmed by the decaying art deco edifice of the long-abandoned Ellis Restaurant.
We thought we were going to visit a classic dairy bar, but instead found a refreshing and modern take on fast food that’s merely operating from one of these fun old buildings.
