Road tripping this summer? You can’t afford to miss these amazing places for foodies …
Nashville has the best barbecue food in America. Nowhere else can you find tastier pulled pork or more freshly baked cornbread than here. The city is covered with tons of amazing barbecue joints to check out. Our favourite spots are Peg Leg Porker BBQ, which has the most amazing ribs and the most awesome patio, and Off the Bone BBQ, which is perfect for a mom and pop style homemade barbecue dinner. Tons of barbecue festivals happen throughout the year including the Music City BBQ Festival where you can grab some awesome barbecue cooking as well as stellar live music performances.
