Best BBQ in Nashville


Surprise! Memphis is not the only city in Tennessee that is known for their finger-licking good BBQ. Music City has made its way on the map with a few places who have made a name for themselves and earned their recognition. And it shows, many of these restaurants have been featured on multiple TV shows on the Food Network.


Peg Leg Porter

Located in the Gulch and relatively new to the BBQ scene, only opening in 2013, has become one of the most popular BBQ joints in all of Nashville! They have some pretty unique menu items that you will have to try like their Memphis sushi (sausage cheese platter with saltines) and the Kool-Aid pickles. Pitmaster Carey Bringle brings a Memphis spin in all of his sauces and believes in cooking his meat low and slow, just the way Tennessean’s like it. Not to mention, Peg Leg Porter is located right behind Yazoo Brewing Company, so after a few beers you can walk behind the building and can indulge in some delicious BBQ, how convenient!



Owner and pit master, Pat Martin takes his love for BBQ very seriously. He comes in at 5am every morning, 7 days a week to make everything from scratch with his team. Their “Redneck Taco” can’t be beat, your choice of slow cooked meat on top of a cornbread hoe-cake topped with coleslaw and sauce. He has locations in Mt. Juliet, Nolensville and the most recent (and most popular) Belmont location. Be on the lookout for their Downtown Nashville location opening up in June 2016!


Jack’s Bar-B-Que

Filled with rich history and being one the of the most iconic signs on Broadway, Jack’s Bar-B-Que has built its way up over decades to now be considered the “godfather” of BBQ in Nashville. Jack Cawthon opened his original location on 1st Ave. and Broadway in 1976 overlooking the riverfront. It has since been moved directly on Broadway due to Hard Rock Café needing his space for a new parking lot. But now all of the hungry patrons walking by smell the aroma of hickory smoked greatness and they just have to stop in! Texas brisket, Tennessee pork shoulder, Boston turkey and St. Louis ribs make up some of the popular menu items that keep locals and tourists coming back for more.



Make sure if you plan to visit Edley’s BBQ, that you get their early…and hungry! They only make enough meat for the day and the most popular item to go first? The brisket. With 2 locations in 12 South and East Nashville, Edley’s is the perfect marriage of Nashville’s famous meat-and-three concept and BBQ. Everything is a “secret family recipe” and everything is homemade. Their BBQ nachos may be the best you will ever have next to their Tuck Special. It comes with smoked brisket, house-made spicy pimento cheese, an over-easy egg and red and white sauces.


Bacon & Caviar

Otherwise known as just B&C BBQ, may look like just another average BBQ joint, but the flavors coming from the menu items will explode your taste buds. The sides that they offer completely take the cake, like the macaroni and cheese or their famous “grits of the day.” It is hard to choose between all of the delicious homemade sides, but the always crowd favorite are the grits, no matter what flavor. Located in Melrose and also at the Nashville Farmers Market, make sure to stop by and give B&C a try.
