10 Nashville Staples You Should Have Tried By Now
Nashville has made a name for itself as Music City, but we’d like to argue that it is quite the FOODIE city, as well. You can groan at that bad joke, but at the end of the day Tennessee’s biggest city really packs a tasty punch. Whether you’re indulging in great biscuits or hot chicken from the east side of the city, here are ten Nashville staples that you
definitely should’ve tried by now. And if not? We have your bucket list all made out.
10. Hot Chicken from Prince's
It's really no shock that hot chicken is on this list, but it's necessary for all locals and tourists to indulge in a platter of perfectly fried goodness from the East Nashville-based Prince's.
9. Coffee from Barista Parlor
Honored for serving some of the, "best coffee on the planet," Barista Parlor is the kind of place where you show up for fancy coffee and leave feeling a bit smarter. You'll never be cool enough to pitch up, but that's okay — there's nothing wrong with a solid solo cup.
8. Chile from Varallo's
Varallo's is the oldest restaurant in Tennessee, and Nashville has a solid reputation for it. Come for comfort food and leave wildly happy.
7. Biscuits from Loveless Cafe
Do we need to expand on this? The best biscuits in the state (other than that secret family recipe of yours!) are fabulous.
6. Grilled Cheese from the Grilled Cheeserie
Once a local food truck, now a brick-and-mortar eatery, The Grilled Cheeserie is best enjoyed with a side of tots and one of their thick, perfectly sweet milkshakes.
5. Sweet Potato Pancakes from The Pancake Pantry
A line usually runs around the building at the popular Nashville Pancake Pantry, and for good reason. We recommend the sweet potato pancakes, but you really can't order anything wrong at this historic eatery.
4. Coffee Soda from Steadfast Coffee
Coffee soda may seem like it's only for summertime, but at Steadfast you can indulge in this sweet, fizzy treat all year 'round. The minimalist atmosphere and stunning interior design aren't too bad, either.
3. Pizza from DeSano Pizza Bakery
Made from scratch and served fresh until the dough runs out, ordering any pizza on the menu at DeSano's is always a solid decision.
2. Bushwackers from M.L. Rose
It's a classic Nashville drink and perfect if you're headed out for a night on the town with your friends. During the summertime? There's nothing more decadently refreshing.
1. Bonuts from Biscuit Love
Biscuit Love quickly ratcheted into one of the top spots to eat in Nashville very quickly after its humble, Gulch beginnings. Their bonuts are a mix of a donut and biscuit, made from biscuit dough and dusted with sugar and delectable frosting.
It’s chilly outside, but
this Nashville park is great during the wintertime.
