The 14 Best BBQ Joints in Nashville, According to Local Experts
Beloved by tourists for its biscuits and fried chicken, locals know The Loveless Café as a reliable spot for quality barbecue. Just a mere 20 minutes from Downtown, it’s worth the drive to sink your teeth into the pit-cooked pork with honey blackberry barbecue sauce, or the pit-smoked turkey with cranberry barbecue sauce. Watermelon ribs are a specialty you’ll not likely see anywhere else in town, so don’t skip it.
Cavendish says: “Sometimes I like to arrive early just to enjoy the sweet smoke coming off the pit out front.”
