Best BBQ in the Nashville Area

If there is one thing people love in Tennessee, it’s a great plate of barbecue.  We’ve put together a list of some of the best spots for pulled pork, ribs and more!

  1. Peg Leg Porker
    903 Gleaves St. Nashville, 37203
    Touted as one of the “23 essential barbecue dishes in the country,” Peg Leg Porker dry rub ribs are a must for any BBQ lover

  2. Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint
    3108 Belmont Blvd. Nashville, 37212
    Known for its four whole hog roasting pits and delicious, savory Redneck Tacos (any of their delicious smoked meats on a corn cake), Martin’s Bare-B-Que Joint is rounded out with a beer garden upstairs, as well as two bars and game spaces making it fun for the whole family.

  3. Loveless Café
    8400 TN-100, Nashville, 37221
    Blackberry barbeque sauce and cranberry barbeque sauce tantalize the taste buds, and watermelon ribs are an unexpected culinary delight. 

  4. Shotgun Willies
    4000 Gallatin Pike Suite B, Nashville, 37216
    Long loved by locals as a mobile food truck, Shotgun Willies has put down roots on Gallatin Pike and is still serving up its famous meats smoked over white oak and pecan wood.

  5. The Oak Texas BBQ
    1201 Porter Rd. Nashville, 37206
    While it doesn’t have permanent roots at the moment, the authentic Texas brisket served up at The Oak Texas BBQ is worth carrying out.  Located in the Southern Grist Brewery parking lot, stop in for a cold one while you enjoy this fantastic food.
