There are dive diners and bar in Nashvegas that server better food and friendlier staff. We went on December 3rd around 3:00. It was dead. The bartender looked annoyed we were there. I think he thought we were tourist. Hushpuppies are not on my list of good hushpuppies. My husband said the burger was okay. He would not go back... More

There was a reason for us visiting Brown's Diner and that was because of the fact that two friends had written a song where the opening lines were 'Sitting in Brown's, watching you waiting for your day to change. You were holding your glass, like a new found lover staring into space'. The song called You're On Your Own' by... More

Everything written about this place is true. It's a total dive, has great burgers, helps to know someone to get served, on the dirty side, food is good, place is falling down, music is amazing - all true. I was lucky to visit with a regular which I think made all the difference. Before the end of the evening I... More

Suggested by our landlady and right by where we stayed- we stopped on our last night- the appearance is that of a small town bar- music was just getting started- quick and friendly service and food was good but nothing special but delicious. Great value- i'd go again!

Sat at the bar to order a quick burger. I was the only one at it and gave my order. 2 buddies of the bartender walked in after and sat down. Both ordered burgers and got theirs within 5 minutes. It's been a half hour and I'm still waiting.

This place was awesome, chill, time-stands-still kind of place. Sit at the bar, chat with Gordy, and order a cheeseburger...you won't be disappointed.

Since 1927, Nashville's Peeps have been gnawing a cheese burger, shoveling chili and drinking a cold one in this old Trolley Car. The current owners of the "Car" added an addition to the rear back in 1974 and nothing has changed much since Ernest T threw a rock through a window back in the 80's.... They have won a host...

Today May May and I had a lunch date. Her nickname is May May because I'm a baby boomer and she's a millennial. We work together One day I asked her "what's a May May?" She LOLed and responded that they are pronounced "meems". We were going to go to a trendy burger spot on 12th South but couldn't park.... More

We loved this quaint diner. Our waitress was fabulous and the food was just as good. We ate here based on a friends suggestion and so glad we did!
