4017 Charlotte Avenue, Nashville, TN 37209     615-777-8500

Chicken wings, salads, burgers, and hot dogs; this place has something for everyone. It especially has a patio that you can bring your pooch to.

This café features exposed brick walls, local art on the walls, and study tables. This is the perfect place to grab a cup of java and study or do business. They also have a pet-friendly patio. They have good food, local beers, wine, and a full coffee bar featuring organic beans.


Peg Leg Porker

903 Gleaves Street, Nashville, TN 37203     615-829-6023

Monday – Tuesday 11am – 9pm; Wednesday - Saturday 11am – 10pm

Peg Leg Porker opened their doors in 2013 by owners Carey and Delaniah Bringle.  (Funny, I had a heart attack in 2013…coincidence?)  This family owned and operated establishment and pit-master have won numerous awards for their barbecue. 

I have to say that my litmus test for barbecue is ribs.  If a place has good ribs, then I know everything will be good.  I hate when you go places, and the ribs are super fatty.  These pork ribs are fall-off-the-bone delicious.  And the bark is wonderful.  The sides are made from scratch and terrific.  I highly recommend getting the dry rub ribs and adding the sauce at the table.  The dry rub is quite flavorful, and I am partial to the spicy sauce.  They also offer a lunch special Monday through Friday from 11am to 3pm:  a barbecue sandwich, a side, and a drink for $8.90.  There may be a line, but it goes quickly.  Order your food first, then, by the time you get your drink, they are calling your name to pick up your food.    They also have patio-seating.



2706 12th Avenue S., Nashville, TN 37204    615-953-2951

4500 Murphy Road, Nashville, TN 37209    615-942-7499

908 Main Street, Nashville, TN 37206     615-873-4085

Edley’s has multiple locations around Nashville. The ribs are good, but only served for dinner. The white sauce is something to try. They have a dog-friendly patio. They offer a delicious Bushwacker frozen drink and local craft beers.


Tailgate Brewery

7300 Charlotte Pike, Nashville, TN 37209    615-861-9842

The taproom has a constantly rotating beer list, as well as wine, liquor, and non-alcoholic options. They offer delicious gourmet pizzas, loaded waffle fries, sandwiches, salads, and appetizers. There is a covered barn as well as picnic tables outside for you and your furry friends to enjoy. I recommend the Peanut Butter Stout.
