15. Arnold's Meat & Three
Arnold's is packed everyday for a reason. This is one of the best meat and three restaurants in Nashville (as evident by their recent write up in Southern Living). The restaurant is set up cafeteria style, so just grab your tray and wait your turn. I wish I could recommend some meals for you, but I have never had something I did not like there. It is almost impossible to only go there once, so you will have plenty of other opportunities to try it all.
Do not be put off by the long lines which are usually out the door. It moves fast. However, do be prepared to share a table with some people (making new friends is never bad). Arnold's is a great atmosphere and the staff is always smiling and ready to help you.
The building does not stand out, so be on the lookout or you can miss it.
