This Tiny Restaurant In Nashville Is Easy To Overlook But SO Worth A Visit
A tiny Nashville restaurant tends to be hard to come by these days, especially with bigger, New York Time’s-rated restaurants that keep stealing the spotlight over in Germantown. Though East Nashville saw a surge of growth a few years ago, the gritty neighborhood over the river has returned to its down home roots, and gave us the sweetest place to eat: Ruby Ann’s.
Ruby Ann's is located right on McFerrin in East Nashville, close to famed hamburger eatery The Pharmacy and Mas Tacos Por Favor. Easy to spot and a fabulous takeout space, you can pitch up for breakfast, lunch and a good bit of ice cream.
Case-in-point: this delicious steak tenderloin biscuit that has our mouths watering from behind the computer screen. Helloooo, gorgeous! This local find gives a solid spin on southern classics, giving us everything from a buttery biscuits to vegetarian-friendly veggie sausage.
The perfect summertime hangout and springtime eatery, you can also head over in the winter to get all sorts of nostalgic over the warmer months.
We'd recommend trying out the Dorito dog, which comes laden with toppings that include our favorite crumbled up nacho cheese chips.
The maple cinnamon funnel cake is also a favorite! You can also order up a chicken biscuit with jalapeño jelly and goat cheese, a spicy and creamy addition to any meal.
We've heard rave reviews about the Heath Toffee Snowstorm, too. If you're a candy bar fan, the generous chunks of chocolate are perfectly suited to an early afternoon.
Although a cheeseburger sounds fabulous, Ruby Ann's has created its own take on the loaded southern biscuit. Nashville may be known for hot chicken, but we've now started stacking biscuits with everything from egg and cheese to strips of steak.
You can visit for yourself at 726 McFerrin Avenue in East Nashville, from 8am to 2pm every day but Tuesday. We'll meet you there for breakfast! And probably lunch, too...
unexpected underground ocean in Tennessee is also pretty magnificent, once you whet your appetite.
