“Truely an exception to the rule”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

It is a cafeteria style place, but everything that I had was a step above for what it was. Tradional southern comfort food that is a step above; unique and quite good.

“Awesome Country Cooking! ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

The line was out the door at lunch time when we got there on a Thursday afternoon. Don't expect any fancy dining experience. You are strictly here for the food. Its a meat and 2(or 3) sides type place. The roast beef was incredible as well as the fried green tomatoes and mac n cheese! Topped it off with a "ho" cake (aka cornbread made on the grill). This place exceeded expectations. We'll definitely be back.

“A must visit!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014 via mobile

From the rare roast beef which doesn't require a knife to the spicy collard greens and the homemade peach pie this place is amazing. They have kids meals and a variety of food that changes daily in addition to their main menu quick service friendly people outstanding food at a bargain price.

“Some of the Best Nashville food you can get!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2014

I was on a trip with my friends and we stopped in Nashville for the night on our way back to Chicago. In the morning we were looking for a good restaurant and ran across Arnolds which has been on tv, in magazines, etc. The place is small and packed with people waiting to walk down the line and pick what they want to eat for the day. The tables sit right next to the line and you feel at home here with the smells and chatter. I got chicken and dumplings with mashed potatoes and mac and cheese. Let me tell you that it was seriously some of the best southern food I have ever had. This is a must stop for any food fanatic.

“Go for the brisket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Best brisket in town! Only open from Monday-Friday from 10:30-2:30. Get there early or be prepared to stand in line. Service is quick and the food is iconic. Great place to eat, their brisket was outstanding.
