Nashville...

So while I was in town for Sheri's wedding I got to piss around the city of Nashville for a couple days and see what trouble I could find... I stayed downtown at the Millennium Towers Hotel... it was just OK, but a great location...


I spent one night cruising around the bars and met some nice people over a drink or two... when I had a second day in town, I wanted to take in all the delicious food that is The Music City...

According to Guy Fieri there are two BBQ stops in town that are not to be missed... The first was downtown; Jacks Bar-B-Que... I was dripping sweat from the 90 degree weather as I walked down the street to the restaurant...


The AC in the dining room was a relief and the aroma of delicious BBQ inviting...


I ordered the Tennessee style BBQ sandwich with green beans & potato salad... it was OK, just a little bland...


Then I moved on to the second legendary place that was suggested; Hog Heaven... it was an old beat up shack tucked behind a McDonald's and there was quite a crowd lined up and eating outside...
I ordered another pork BBQ sandwich and this one was truly amazing! The meat was tender and juicy, the sauce was spicy and the bun, soft and delicious! THIS is what I was looking for!

On my way back from Hog Heaven I happened by a White Castle burger and had to stop... as I pulled in I noticed that they not only served White Castle Burgers, but Churches Chicken; IN THE SAME BUILDING!

Needless to say I gobbled down a hot a crispy chicken wing as well as my yummy little White Castle Burgers...

I drove around the city and saw a few more boring sites and sweltered in the disgusting humidity... As I pulled up to get gas for my rental car I noticed a Krystal Burger and had to stop and get one of those as well... almost as good as the White Castle, almost...

Nashville was overall a pretty boring city, lots of traffic on the freeways, hot, humid, and probably not a place I would ever visit again...
