Edley's Bar-B-Que in 12South

When my visiting cousin wanted some good BBQ, I knew we'd have to give Edley's Bar-B-Que a try.  My coworkers had recommended it multiple times,  yet I'd still never been.  (Even if a restaurant has been around for a while, I like to review it when I go for the first time, in case my experience can add to the venue's track record.)

The ambiance at Edley's is very BBQ... paper towels on the tables, extra sauce, reclaimed wood everywhere, and the wonderful BBQ smell.  They also have a great bar area.

You order at the counter, then they bring the food out to you.  You can see the delicious desserts (like gooey butter cake and chess pie, oh my!) up there too, tempting you.  My cousin got the banana pudding as a side, and I was jealous.  But I had my hands full with my pork sandwich, cornbread, and macaroni and cheese.  The cornbread was good, and it had a little jalapeno kick to it.  I prefer plain cornbread, but still good.

The macaroni impressed me!  I love macaroni, but usually the sides at BBQ places are kind of bland and generic.  This macaroni was thoughtfully seasoned (I know that sounds so pretentious, but it's the only way I could describe it) and worth choosing.  I am lactose intolerant, so I have to take medication to eat mac 'n' cheese, and I'd deem this worth it!  The sandwich was top notch too.  I really thought the ratio of sauce to meat was perfect, and the bread was good too.

Dan got a half rack of ribs, as well as the brisket chili.  I got to taste both, and it was delicious!  There's great brisket meat and spices in that chili.  I'd recommend this option too, if you're into ribs.  My cousin got the ribs, mac, and banana pudding.  The sandwiches comes with two sides, but the ribs come with two sides and cornbread.  Bonus!

When you're done with the meal, you toss the trash away and put your tray on the pile.  Edley's is definitely my new "old" favorite for BBQ in the Nashville area!

  4. It was definitely worth a visit! Then we headed down the street to get some Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams.

  5. My mouth is watering - BBQ, Mac n cheese, and banana pudding... let's put this in the Nashville list. I have been craving nana puddin' today!

  6. And it's in 12South, which is one of Lindsey's favorite neighborhoods! It's probably the best BBQ in town.
