Husk – Nashville, Tennessee by ThankfulMonster

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in BB Approved, Nashville, Tennessee, Visits by ThankfulMonster

Recently, on the persistent recommendation from my good friend Burger Beast, I spent a weekend in Nashville. Because he knows me well enough to understand that the promise of a good meal is about the only motivation I need to plan a trip, Burger Beast adamantly insisted that Nashville’s famous Hot Chicken is bucket list worthy.

I spent the better part of the last two weeks on a road trip with my friends the Miami Meat Machine (DaChew, DJ Cow Money & Gerther) driving around in a Chevrolet Tahoe LTZ loaned to me by Chevy (Thanks!). Now that I got that shameless plug out of the way, let’s talk about all the spots […]

My wife Marcela and I, while searching out Antique Shops in the Jackson, Tennessee for my collection ran across the Burger Barn. When you see a sign that says, “Real Homemade Hamburgers” you know that it’s a must stop in my book. Burger Barn is an old school place your order at the window (where […]

Roxie’s Grocery – Memphis, Tennessee

An important thing to do when visiting towns is connect with the folks who know their cities really well. I’m not really interested in eating at restaurants listed on “Top 10 Lists” created by someone who doesn’t even leave their desks to write them. In this case I was in Memphis which means I spoke […]

Fox’s Donut Den – Nashville, Tennessee

Just a hop skip and a jump from the hotel we were staying at was Fox’s Donut Den. After having recently learned the term “Kolach” I was excited to see they sell them at Donut Den, up until that point I was ok with calling them giant Pigs in Blankets. Next up was my homeboy […]

If you don’t know of the “Hot Chicken” revolution then you’re missing out on one of the South’s greatest treasures. In Nashville, Hot Chicken (Spiced up Fried Chicken) is a thing. The originator of Hot Chicken is Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack which was unfortunately closed on the Sunday & Monday we were in Nashville. Our […]

When I’m on vacation, it’s a constant search for somewhere to stop and eat. Sometimes the type of food gets me, sometimes it’s the logo or word of mouth that will drive me to check out a restaurant. We (my wife Marcela & I) had just eaten at Hattie B’s Hot Chicken and were on our […]

Gibson’s Donuts – Memphis, Tennessee

I didn’t walk into Gibson’s Donuts with the correct plan of attack. Normally, I’d take a seat and sample of couple of donuts with a cup of joe by my side but we had just finished having breakfast at Blue Plate Cafe with an impromptu early lunch at at Dyer’s which left the guys down […]

Dyer’s Burgers – Memphis, Tennessee

It hadn’t even been a couple of hours since our breakfast at Blue Plate Cafe. After a stop at Sun Studios we drove around the famous but deserted at this time of the morning (11AM) Beale Street. We were looking for Dyer’s Burgers which has been around since 1912 but not at this particular location. […]

Gus’s World Famous Fried Chicken – Memphis, Tennessee

When I mentioned on Social Media (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) that I was hitting up Memphis for food, one particular restaurant and their Fried Chicken got mentioned more than the rest, Gus’s. Normally, I would first assume that the place in question is a tourist trap but after investigating some, it appeared that Gus’s World […]

Blue Plate Cafe – Memphis, Tennessee

The Blue Plate Cafe was less than a mile from the hotel we were staying at in Memphis. The night before eating here we had driven up and down the street it was on just taking in all the dining options near us. The menu comes in the form of a newspaper and the look […]
