    Make sure to get there early (11-1115am) otherwise the lines are long and the seats few. Can't go wrong with meat and three: try the ham or roast beef. Mac & cheese and mashed potatoes are excellent.

    Meat and three, chess pie

    Kitchen help is a hoot. Loved the Baked Chicken and Squash. Spiced is certainly the theme in Nashville. Keep that in mind when eating local favorites :)

    Worth the wait! So delicious. Mac and cheese and greens were incredible.

    Soo good. Line is long but it moves fast. Best roast beef I ever had. And the banana pudding and cauliflower casserole were fantastic!

    Keep an eye peeled in summer for the tomato-basil pie. It's a delicious, savory side.

    The desserts are all delicious, but don't touch the plates unless you want them! Meats, mashed potatoes, sweet tea, collared greens are all great. Cafeteria style can be a bit disorienting

    To be honest, I'm not sure what the appeal was here. Something must've changed between when DD&D visited, but when I went recently, everything was really, really salty and just not fun to eat...

    Roast beef, Mac and cheese, fried green tomatoes, greens. Line moves quickly. Don't save seats.
  • Natalie J.
    Natalie JenkinsJuly 17, 2015
    This food was not as great as it seems. Their green beans are very salty and the sweet tea is way to sweet as well as the pie. The only thing I really liked was the fried catfish and the mac n cheese

    Don't let the line intimidate you. It's always there, but the wait is worth it. Try the meatloaf!

    THE meat & three. Country fried steak drowned in brown. Roast beast all juicy & garlic-y. Pintos done right with pork in the pot. Chocolate pie so good it'll give you a buzz by the slice.

    Arnold’s, probably the most famous meat-and-three in Nashville, is only open from 10:30 to 2:30pm on weekdays.

    Everything is unreal. The roast beef was amazing. Mac and cheese is to die for. Pecan & chocolate pies = heaven.

    Trina BooneApril 3, 2015
    AH-MAZING! Reminds me of Chicago; when there's a line, there's something worth pigging out on. Generious is an understatement for portions and seasoned perfectly! I'll try not to come everyday!

    Considered by most as the best meat-and-three, if not the best lunch plate, in town. Also serves up delicious fried green tomatoes (don’t leave without them). Read more

    Good food. Beats Loveless Cafe on quality. Gets really crowded & is a very small place. Go early, or plan on waiting. It's a meat-and-three place, and good as far as that goes, but not "amazing".
    CITY GRITAugust 1, 2014
    If you're lucky enough to be there on a day when they're serving up Fried Green Tomatoes, well order them, son. Then go play the lottery because those are the best FGTs we’ve ever tasted.
    CITY GRITAugust 1, 2014
    It's no wonder there is always a line – if you’re lucky only people 10 deep but it’s usually out the door. With a menu that changes daily, you can only guarantee that everything will be delicious.
