The 14 Best BBQ Joints in Nashville, According to Local Experts
A few other barbecue joints have occupied this converted house off of Charlotte Pike, but nobody hit it big until The Ridge came in and took the menu over the top with loaded sandwiches and a few Latin-inspired specialty dishes. The BBQ Totchos come with tater tots topped with your choice of smoked meat, shredded cheese, sour cream, scallions, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, and the number of a good cardiologist. If somebody in your party isn’t feeling the barbecue, point them to the decadent smoked bologna or a roster of inventive burgers.
Cavendish is willing to die on this particular Ridge: “I'm always a fan of things on top of things. Sure, a pulled pork sandwich is good, but at the Ridge you can get it topped with a fried green tomato and bacon. It's a BPT instead of a BLT, something any meat lover should prefer.”
