This is not the first time that we went to middle Tennessee and enjoyed some pretty good barbecue, and then came back to eastern Tennessee and had better.
It’s been around for 72 years and everybody says that the shrimp and the onion rings are completely amazing. This classic diner threatened to collapse from the weight of expectations and hype, but I was quite satisfied by the food and the excellent service.
Terrific news from Chattanooga: our favorite soft drink company is now bottling their sodas and they’re available at some of the city’s very best restaurants.
We enjoyed another trip to the Creative Discovery Museum, and navigated a crowd, marching band, and majorettes to enjoy some gelato at this recently-opened restaurant helmed by some of the city’s most successful restaurateurs.
We took another day trip to the Scenic City for more baby-friendly activities. This time, we started the day by meeting with a fellow blogger and her family for a great meal at the flagship for this local chain of pizza joints.
Our last stop on this fabulous road trip was another location of a restaurant that we really enjoy. Plus, after we returned, we learned some exciting news: they’re coming to Atlanta!
We conclude this short road trip with a desperate race against time. After a fine meal at this local chain of bohemian burrito joints, we frantically race through darkness and danger to get some Pure Sodaworks for the road. Will we make it before they go home for the night?!
The couple behind Chattanooga’s popular Urban Stack also have another popular restaurant in their belt. This saucy-minded drinking hole has been winning fans with its cocktails and contemporary takes on tacos, and has expanded to two other cities.
A day trip to one of our favorite cities saw us enjoying some ice cream from this wonderful parlor on the North Shore. And the baby getting incredibly wet. Twice.
Tired and over budget, we made our way to this very popular joint across from the UTC campus, where a couple from Mississippi have been getting rave reviews for their fried chicken, tamales and live music. This is an excellent place that cries out for a return visit or twelve.
Last year, a little startup soda company opened a little storefront on Chattanooga’s River Street, and also put a cart together to go join the food trucks, wherever they roam. They’re making some very clever and very tasty soda concoctions from an old-fashioned jerk pump…
We took a day trip to Chattanooga and visited a couple of the city’s most popular restaurants. First up, some awesome burgers that people have been raving about the last couple of years.
Here’s a chapter that I hope will spark nostalgic memories for anybody who grew up in eastern Tennessee or northern Georgia. Kay’s Ice Cream, and later Kay’s Kastles, with their iconic signs, were big treats for my family, and the stores have a very interesting history.
