We call Nashville “Music City, USA” for the obvious reason, it’s been considered the capital of country music for generations, and continues to foster great artists in a multitude of genres – not just country, but rock and jazz and rhythm and blues. When people come to Nashville for vacation immediately they head for the more prominent attractions like the Opry and Country Music Hall of Fame Museum. Eventually, though, you get hungry, and food almost becomes an afterthought.

It shouldn’t have to be in Nashville. Here you can find a wide selection of cuisines at reasonable prices, with dishes hovering around $10-15 per person. So if you’re on a budget but don’t want to spend any time idling in a drive-through lane, check out some of Nashville’s more popular stops for succulent barbecue, zesty Tex-Mex and old-fashioned southern delights.
