I vote Papa Boudreaux's first on the list.
I guess the first thing to do is get a list of restaurants together. We should also give a description of the food and the price range. Don't see any reason why we can't raid Robs thread...
Cool beans! I need a new crew to run with. Seems my style is a little underappreciated in certain circles.
Alright, here's the deal...
We'll meet the 3rd Saturday of the month. We'll avoid chains. Keep it reasonably priced. Spread it around. Meet fairly early, say 4:00. Try for variety so no BBQ 3 times in a row, etc.
Here's the schedule...
8-21-10 at 4:00PM
295 South Main Street
Ashland City, TN 37015-1611
After 38 years this Ashland City landmark is closing Sept 1st. This may be your last chance to eat there. This is a true classic 50's style diner which gets rave reviews.
If we're gunna be in that neighborhood....what about that nett's place? Is it any guud?
I was gunna ride Hickman that day so I could just pull in from off the road !!
yes sir, netts is verry good place to eat. and she has a large slection of stuff also.
pappa budrx is kinda high, (high as in a nice steak house high) but i have not been there in a wile. someone told me you had to call ahead with them also.
Screw that, I'm ridin a KLR after all.
Netts it is.
Yeah. P B can get kinda expensive. It's more of an event. But the food is killer. I vote we keep'er simple.
Care for some company? You may need some help changing your oil or something.
Bring it own like a chicken bone SS. That's next Sunday right? Oh wait, you and I together might be a dangerous combination.....both of us might not make it back
That's ok though...CDQ will either be with us or COME GET US!!
i will be wiff ya dog !!
this shit sounds good to me.
i can be ya service truck on 2 wheels, hell i dont mind.
oser yea....its a drz not a damn seadoo!
Um, did someone say food? The fat man's in!! Gotta keep the girlish figure going.
Sunday the 18th it is. Let's pick a time and place to meet that is NOT in Columbia. How about the Mercantile in Franklin at 8? In days of yore I would have said Puckett's in Leipers Fork but since the fleecing on my last visit there it will be a long time before they get any more of my money. Or you can pick a spot. I'm cheap, but I'm easy.
Franklin Merc. BZZZT...
monday - wednesday [7am-3pm] thursday - saturday [7am-9pm] Sunday [closed]
100 4th Avenue North, Downtown Franklin, TN 37064 615-790-9730
There's a Puckett's in Franklin as well. More restaurant, less trendy "old country store". I'm good with anywhere...The Sunday afternoon part is where the difficulty lies, but I will always try to weave it in.
So Puckett's has kicked you out too? I told you about that bathing thing. I know...it keeps the bears away...but it's strong to people too. Once a week is all we ask.
Thanks for getting the food thing going! I'm in so far for this first one. Gonna play the ride by the temperatures, but at least in for the feedin'.
It's pheromones I tell ya. They're not supposed to work on dudes.
So, I've never been to Puckett's. Ridden by but never stopped for some reason. Are you saying that it's gone up scale now? Guess I screwed around and missed it.
In a way the same thing happened to the Loveless. Since the new owners took over and expanded it they're doing a booming business but the vibe has changed. Its morphed from a small local gem to a crowded tourist stop. Somehow the foods not as good either. Still pretty good, but it used to be "jump up and smack yer mama" good. First, the biscuit lady died and I guess going from 2 or 3 old ladies in the kitchen to a staff of 15 will change things.
Which is one of the things I'd love to see with this dinner thread...try and hit all of the little mom and pop treasures before they disappear.
Yep. Puckett's-Franklin has gone...well...Franklin. A tour-bus stop. Touristy-feeling. Etc... food is okay, but nothing special.
The reason for the title namesake is to accomplish just that. The kind of places you're talking about. Like Wendell's Meat-n-Three in W Nashville. But more out of the way.
