Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que
So you decided to come to Tennessee for the holiday, I think that means your meal must include some homemade bbq (and more), am I right? This locally owned and operated dining establishment will offer you one lip smacking good meal. Make sure to get the napkins ready when they bring you that plate full of finger licking smoky barbeque ribs. The rest of the family will probably start trying to eat off your plate, it’ll look and smell that good. According to their website, their beef is cooked over hickory wood and smoked for over 14 hours, sign me right up for dinner please. They also have other amazing entree choices, but I must tell you, my actual favorite thing here is their homemade bread. If I could just order a plate of that for dinner, I probably would, it’s that good. They also have a homemade soup and salad bar that I will gladly get in love for. You won’t regret spending your holiday here!
J.T. Hannah’s Kitchen
This is another locally owned and operated favorite of ours that is well worth checking out with the family for your Thanksgiving meal. Here you will find everything from burgers to pasta as well as a gluten free menu, so there’s something for everyone. They also serve some truly unique and tasty appetizers for everyone to share. Just order a bunch of them and you all can have a feast at the table! Don’t worry, they also have plenty of tv’s all around the restaurant so you can watch the big football game while you’re there. They will be open from 11 pm until 9 pm, but we’re sure people will be lining up early. I bet you’re all getting super excited for your meal, we know it’ll be a good one.
