15 Irresistible Restaurants That Define Tennessee

Tennessee is thoroughly entrenched on every foodie’s bucket list across the globe. We’re the apex of southern cuisine, we bleed culture and thrive on creativity. These 15 restaurants are some of the best in the state, but they go a little further than that – they define our state as a whole. Each and every one of them attributes something to the glistening gem Tennessee is to American food culture.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
