We went to The Hop Stop in East Nashville for my friend's going-away night out. They had a fantastic beer selection on tap, and we also indulged in their hot dogs for dinner. I'm kind of a plain hot dog person... I like a really good dog with just ketchup. I liked theirs a lot! I also indulged in their shells and cheese, which were very tasty too. Not the best mac in town, but a great accompaniment to the hot dog.
Dan and I also visited a new brewery in East Nashville, Smith & Lentz. They opened around Halloween, and they make solidly good beer. Their taproom is huge, and you can even play ping pong! Check them out across the street from The Filling Station.
Dan works in The Gulch neighborhood of Nashville, so he's been eating at Peg Leg Porker for a while. I was in the neighborhood for work, so I indulged in a delicious BBQ sandwich, with delicious crispy fries. It's not as good as Edley's to me, but definitely someplace I'd come back to if I were in the Gulch and craving it.
Lastly, I checked out the new-ish Roosters Hot Chicken place in Cool Springs. It's pretty good! I really like their fries, and they did a great job with the chicken. Not too greasy, and good spice. The restaurant used to be an Indian place called Swagruha, if you're looking for it. It's probably some of the best hot chicken in Franklin, since Hattie B's hasn't expanded south yet. The restaurant isn't much to look at on the inside; it will remind you of a barren cafeteria. But the food is worth checking out if that's what you're wanting to eat, and you don't have time to get up to Nashville.
What looks yummy to you?
