BBQ Joint
$$
“Tennesseans hold their BBQ sacred and Edley's does not disappoint. A casual spot with plenty of TVs to watch the game, you order at the register and they bring your food to the table. Pro Tip: If the line at the register is long, you can also order at the bar, usually much more quickly! They have a great selection of local beers and a Nashville favorite - Bushwackers (basically an alcoholic Wendy's frosty). This is a controversial opinion, but I think they have the best Nashville's Hot Chicken in town - the jalapeno ranch is the clincher for me! Their smoked wings are also amazing - but they're known for their pulled pork and brisket. If they haven't sold out when you are there, DON'T miss out on the basket of fried okra!”
