Sunday afternoon and finishing up the weekend, we decided to eat a late lunch or early dinner. The pork loin was good, the Nachos were great, the beer was cold and the entertainment was EXCELLENT!

Dropped in around lunch time to listen to the music upstairs. The band was ok but I was surprised by the price of a bottle of local beer. The most expensive we experienced in downtown Nashville. That was enough to discourage us from ordering lunch.

Seems like more of a tourist bar than an actual BBQ restaurant. Primary sauce is literally just Sweet Baby Ray’s, as seen on the serving table next to us. Baked beans and turnips very average...upstairs bar has a great view, though.
