The Volunteer State is hungry!

So where to eat? I'll travel a long way for a good meal. And I know I haven't come close to trying them all...mostly because I don't know where they all are.

Had a good food experience in Tennessee that you wanna share with the class? Post up a name, location, brief description and price range (low, medium, high) and I'll add it to the list. Ideally, these will be out-of-the-way ma & pa type joints out in the sticks. Nothing against the big cities and all, but the more remote the better. Due to time & space considerations, locations in the larger cities will no longer be added to the list nor map. Feel free to post them to the thread, but they won't show up on the list.

I'll update this thread as often as possible to try & make finding great local food easy.

In the city, but fantastic.


Los Tortugas, Deli Mexicana in Germantown (Memphis)

NOT a typical Mexican place. Mexico city style. Beyond amazing!

Pepe & his son Johnathan run it.

Nothing from food service distributors, fresh stuff from the markets every day.

Pepe has a large collection of RC30s & often rides a Boss Hoss to to work.

The picture next to the soda machine is Pepe on an ex Trey Batey GSXR at Daytona.

Pepe is in his 70's!

Not fancy, but not super cheap. Expect to pay about 20-25 per person.

Best place to eat in this area.

Whisker's - it's catfish, moderately priced. On Hwy 31 between Columbia and Spring Hill. Closed on Sundays, and don't be surprised if you have to wait for a table.

I can ad a few:

Miller's Grocery in Christiana. They do lunch on weekdays, dinner Fridays & Saturdays, with folk or bluegrass (reservations recommended for dinner) and brunch on Sunday.

Then there is Bell Buckle Cafe in, of course, Bell Buckle.

If you're near Rock Island State Park, a good place is Foglight Foodhouse in Walling.

So this is taking up alot more time than anticipated. For that reason, I'm not gonna add any more locations in the larger cities...only small town stuff. Feel free to post away whatever you want, but from now on I'm only adding the podunk spots to the list.

Not to discourage anyone though. Quite the contrary. But adding EVERY good restaurant in the state will clutter the map and the list. The original idea was to keep this to out-of-the-way ma and pop joints and the map/list will reflect that. I won't delete anything existing, but it's dinky towns only as the list goes from here out. Thanks for your understanding
