8 Nashville Restaurants Where Over-The-Top Appetizers Steal The Show
If you’re headed out to dinner, you’re most likely thinking about the massive plate of fried chicken or side of biscuits in your future, especially if you’re eating out in Nashville, Tennessee. These hot spot restaurants, however, make sure to pack a punch at the beginning of the meal as well as the middle and end. If you’re looking for a killer appetizer, then make sure one of these eight restaurants make it on your epic bucket list.
1. Edley's Bar-B-Que - Various Locations
Edley's is both a local and tourist favorite for their mouth-watering barbecue, but their most decadent item is their barbecue nachos. Order a couple of plates for the table -- they're so good, it's all you need.
2. The Pharmacy Burger & Beer Garden - East Nashville
The Pharmacy is almost as well known for their long lines as they are their burgers, but the wait is worth it. If you're just looking for appetizers, grab a few seats at the bar and get their tots or their sweet potato fries -- each might be the best in the city. Find them at
731 Mcferrin Ave.
3. Pastaria Nashville - West Nashville
Pastaria offers one of the most authentic but progressive Italian food options in Nashville, and while everything on the menu is amazing, you can hardly mutter the word "Pastaria" in Nashville without someone raving about their risotto balls appetizer. Fried cheese? Count us in! Find them at
8 City Blvd.
4. Josephine - 12 South
Josephine is one of the most underrated restaurants in Nashville, but these homemade chips with smoked onion dip is better than you ever thought chips and dip could be. We could seriously eat these all day. Find them at
2316 12th Ave S.
5. Burger UP - Various
Another burger joint making waves with their appetizers. Be careful ordering the sausage balls. If you eat them before you order a burger, chances are, you'll just be ordering a few more plates of these unbelievable, mouth-watering delicacies.
6. Adele's Nashville - The Gulch
Adele's in the Gulch is an absolutely beautiful space with even more incredible food. Their smoked salmon dip is good enough to eat it by the spoonful, though. Luckily, they provide homemade chips that are also worth the trip by themselves. Find them at
1210 McGavock St.
7. The Stillery - Facebook
Crispy brussels sprouts served up with spicy firecracker sauce and homemade ranch dressing sounds like a meal at The Stillery. Who knew vegetables could be so decadent?? Find them at
113 2nd Ave N.
8. Folk - East Nashville
The salads at Folk in East Nashville are some of the most flavorful and truly impressive in the city. This one with sweet potatoes, radish sprouts, and fermented garlic honey already has our mouths watering. Find them at
