Today we bring you another fantastic meat and three in Music City. The Pie Wagon located on Division St. serves up your favorite home cooked meals on a daily basis. Your options of entrees all depends on which day you go. On Fridays, they serve turkey ‘n’ dressing, pan-fried catfish, and the cook’s choice.

There’s a fantastic family friendly Italian restaurant called Pomodoro East located in East Nashville. Inside, the atmosphere allows you to escape to a rustic wonderland with old barn wood making the decor. Pizza lovers will enjoy their wood fire open oven which provides a great smell throughout the restaurant. To match their style is a menu made of real authentic Italian food. Each item crafted to perfection by Chef Eric White and Chef Willy Thomas. The Spaghetti Pomodoro with Meatballs is one of the best presentations of a classic dish one can find in Music City. A rich tomato sauces mixed with soft spaghetti noodles then topped with basil garlic, red pepper flakes, parmesan, and three huge meatballs. No reason to add anything extra to this meal. It’s perfect just the way it is, and we love it for that reason.
TACO TIME! Oh yes, everyone deserve a great taco. Oscar’s Taco Shop located not too far from Downtown Nashville is the perfect spot for some fantastic tacos. They like to keep things pretty simple. Most of their options only have about four main ingredients. By keeping it simple they believe they can offer a bit more meat with less filler. It’s awesome. As for your choice. Go with the Grilled Shrimp Tacos with fresh pico, cabbage, and sour cream. Don’t be surprised when your tacos come with two tortillas. They are so big they wrap it with an extra one. It’s absolutely scrumptious. Go get it!
A lot of things can be said about The Patterson House, but one thing is absolutely for sure, they know how to make a drink. These guys don’t mess around when it comes to their alcohol. Since they opened in 2009, Nashville has changed how they enjoy their cocktails. Step inside and instantly be transported to pre-Prohibitions times when cocktails and a great conversation was all one needed for a great night. For your first drink order The Nashville Gentleman which contains 2oz Remy Martin, 3/4 Carpano Antica, 3/4 Bassano Nardini Amaro, and a Dash of House Chocolate Bitters. Smooth with a bite. A perfect cocktail. Cheers!
WE always enjoy taking an adventure to the House of Kabob off Thompson Ln. One of the best place to order traditional Persian style kabobs! They use high quality ingredients and one big ole grill. That’s our favorite part. Love enjoying some great food right off the grill. Almost reminds you of a nice summer day. Which we could all use once the cold wind begins. The Sultani features two skewers of meat, one skewer of barg (filet), and the other of kubideh (ground beef). Then it’s served with a HUGE plate of rice and a big tomato. It’s a whole lot of food and OH so good. A meal that will warm you up and keep that chilly wind off your back. Check it out!
Empanadas Colombianas is a very popular snack in Columbia. They are typically fried corn dough filled with beef or chicken. Then it’s typically served with a salsa and lime wedges. Almost like a taco calzone. What’s really cool is you can actually have authentic Empanadas Colombianas right here in Nashville. Guantanamera Restaurant located in South Nashville is all about offering real cuban and latin foods to the public. Including their take on the popular Columbian snack. They actually allow you to choose the ingredients. You can pick from beef with potato or chicken with potato. We have had both, and believe they are both fantastic. Each plate offers four empanadas with a bit of salsa and lime wedges. It’s great to share with friends!
