This is a great place to eat. We love their pulled smoke Chicken for a little healthier choice than pork. This location also has a drive thru for taking back home. The restaurant is normally very cold, so you may want to sit on their...More

Very small dining room, but it appears that a large percentage of customers place to-go orders or use the drive-thru anyway. The brisket sandwich was probably the most moist brisket I can remember having. The flavor wasn't particularly distinctive, but was good. The pork bbq...More

I live 1/2 mile from Martin's and visit often. It never disappoints. This is one of those unique bbq's who make enough to serve fresh, so don't expect to show up near closing time and find everything available. Excellent bbq requires time not a reheat....More

Great place for great barbecue. The sides are delish as well. Prices are good, the servings large and the clientele friendly. I will definitely go back the next time I am in Nashville.

I know they are known for BBQ but the cheeseburger is fantastic! Big fresh tomato, lettuce, cheese and I ordered mayo instead of the regular sauce. It was so good I’m coming again!! Ate it all!! The girls loved the Mac cheese!!

This small chain came recommended to us; I would say it specializes in North Carolina style barbecue. We enjoyed the brisket but the pulled pork was very dry and flavorless. Barbecue sauces are somewhat of a regional and personal choice but we found theirs to...More

The closest hotels would be in either Franklin/Cool Springs, Smyrna or Murfreesboro. Franklin/Cool Springs would probably have the most choices.

West Tennessee's legendary whole-hog BBQ tradition is the cornerstone of Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint. The restaurants have been featured on the Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, and The Today Show and in publications such as Bon Appetit, Esquire, Conde Nast Traveler, and Men's Journal. Pat Martin learned the art and craft of West Tennessee-style smoke and meat 25 years ago in the tiny town of Henderson, TN before making Nashville his home. It became a consuming passion that eventually led to a business when he opened the first Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint in October of 2006 in Nolensville, Tennessee - just south of Nashville. Today, there are four locations in the Nashville area, including the newest serving those seeking great BBQ in Downtown Nashville. We come in at 5 am, every day, seven days a week. From the sides to the sauces, everything is made from scratch every single day.
