Well, I’ve been given the task of giving you some tips on how to have fun in Nashville while you are here for Kids Ministry Conference. While thinking about this post, I realized that all my ideas of fun had to do with food. 🙂
So, here are some tips on some great places to eat while you are visiting Nashville!
If you don\’t have a car, these are within walking distance of Lifeway:
- Demos\’ Restaurant – Great lunch specials, including all you can eat soup and salad! Their bread is to die for.
- Jack’s BBQ – Great BBQ place right on Broadway
- The Old Spaghetti Factory – Opens at 11:30 for lunch. Great food and a fun atmosphere.
- Puckett’s – A middle Tennessee favorite. GREAT breakfasts!
- Panera Bread – For when you need a bowl of soup and free wireless!!
- San Antonio Taco Company – affectionately known as SATCO by the locals. Try the "fajita" tacos and the queso.
If you do have a car:
- Baja Burrito – a local favorite. Be prepared to stand in line and try the pineapple salsa!
- Burger Up (and Las Paletas) – One of my favorite new restaurants. Love the burger with pimento and cheese and the truffle fries. Make sure you take cash and grab a mexican popsicle at Las Paletas which is right next door (NOTE: Las Paletas is closed on Mondays)!
- Taco Mamacita’s – Great tacos, dips, and peruvian chicken. Just trust me.
- Pancake Pantry – Open 6 AM to 3 PM. Expect a line, but you\’ll love the food. And you may see someone famous.
- Monell’s – Southern food served family style. You eat at a table of 8 with people you may or may not know 🙂
- Germantown Cafe – Great new Nashville restaurant. The desserts there are scrumptious.
- Calypso Cafe – Cuban food. Think chicken, rice, black beans. So good. Try the fruit tea!
