Nashville is known for its fabulous meals and southern comfort food culture, but it’s in these seven long standing restaurants that you truly get the Music City vibe. We love diversity and change on the food scene, don’t get us wrong – but there’s just something about a classic eatery that gets us every time.

Editor’s Note: Sadly, Ellendale’s has permanently closed its doors. You can replace this spot on your dining bucket list with any of Nashville’s numerous historic restaurants for an equally delicious dining experience.
