There’s something sweet about an unassuming restaurant. A bit of true Nashville, it’s always a beautiful thing to find a place that the locals love. It truly paints a city. These are some of our favorites that came straight from our readers – do you have a favorite?
10. Dandgure's Classic Southern Cooking
This down-home restaurant is a perfect place for a southern meat and three. It's a classic take on the days of old and will keep you full for absolute ages!
9. Manny's House of Pizza
Located in the Arcade downtown, Manny's is a must for all business folk who get a craving for a bite of perfection at lunchtime.
8. Dino's Bar
The oldest bar in Nashville has a solid cult following, and for good reason. The food is solid the beer runs heavy and it's a great place to just chill without the frills.
7. Rotier's Restaurant
Known for their burgers on french bread, Rotier's is famous amongst celebrities that swing through town and locals alike.
6. 417 Union
Located downtown, this is a popular place for businessmen who are looking for an early breakfast and great cup of coffee.
5. Mas Tacos
At $3 a taco it doesn't get better than this. Mas Tacos has a Cinderella story of sorts, graduating from a single food truck to a brick and mortar spot in East Nashville.
4. Nashville Biscuit House
Located on Gallatin in East Nashville, this is where you go if you need a quick biscuit that tastes like mama made 'em.
3. Hog Heaven
Hog Heaven is a good bit of bbq with a zing. Although it doesn't look like much out front, it makes up for it in taste.
2. Gabby's Burgers & Fries
Gabby's is tiny but good, the place is always filled to the brim with folks absolutely jonesin' for their greasy burgers and killer fries.
1. Dozen Bakery
This darling bakery is tucked away in the Wedgewood-Houston area, but their goods are all over town. We prefer their sweet bakery (pun intended), for their spread of delicious goods and the MUFFINS ARE GREAT. That is all.
