Cardin’s Drive-In in Knoxville, TN

Cardin’s Drive-In in East Knoxville, Tennessee is an authentic blast from the past that is serving up some great food and ice cream today. Like some of my favorite places including Tom’s Ice Cream Bowl in Ohio and Stewart’s Drive-In in West Virginia, Cardin’s is not a modern take on a classic (like Sonic) but […]

Kabob-ster in Chattanooga

It is rare for me to find a restaurant where I like everything about it. However, that is what has happened with Kabob-ster in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Kabob-ster has great Middle Eastern cuisine at reasonable prices in a clean, bright casual atmosphere. It is a non-chain, local establishment in an area of town that does not […]

The Pancake Pantry in Nashville

It had been a long day for us. It had not started out as a fun mother-daughter day, but rather a follow-up trip to a pediatric dermatologist in Nashville that my eight-year-old did not want to make, especially since it meant an early morning start. However, it started to turn into a fun day when […]

Thai Phooket in Nashville

As I pulled into a parking space in front of Thai Phooket I had serious doubts that I should be taking my 8-year-old to eat at this establishment. A quick double check on Urbanspoon somewhat reassured me that it was indeed “kid friendly” and had decent food. If it had not been a Sunday afternoon […]

Mean Mug Coffeehouse

In our family, my husband is the avid coffee drinker. He is not coffee snob; he just really likes a good cup of coffee. His first trip to the Mean Mug was just for a cup of coffee. Not only did he like the coffee and the atmosphere, he was very impressed with the menu […]

The Pharmacy in Nashville

After reading so many reviews on Urbanspoon, I just had to try The Pharmacy Burger Parlor and Beer Garden in East Nashville.  I am SO happy that I did. They offer TN beef (or you can opt for turkey) burgers, as well as vegetarian and fish burger selections. They also offer house-made wursts and fountain […]

Dining at the Cherry Street Diner

UPDATE: THE CHERRY STREET DINER HAS PERMANENTLY CLOSED. I’m not sure if its because of nostalgia, the food or both, but I love diners. I especially love finding a good diner like The Cherry Street Diner in Chattanooga. Upon entering, I noticed several Mardi Gras and LSU decorations the otherwise typical diner decor establishment: cherry […]

Puckett’s Grocery of Lieper’s Fork, TN

The cooler weather has me thinking about going to Lieper’s Fork, Tennessee to listen to some great music as I eat my lunch at Puckett’s Grocery. Why? Maybe it is because I have not been there since the weather was cooler many months ago. Maybe it is because the food was warm and tasty. Maybe […]

1885 Grill

The 1885 Grill in the St. Elmo neighborhood of Chattanooga, Tennessee offers what they call “southern coastal cuisine.” I call it great, friendly service and really good food. Their location is in the heart of the St. Elmo business area. Despite its central location and close proximity to the Incline Railway, the 1885 Grill is […]

Ichiban Japanese Steak House in Hixson

Our family has a tradition of getting to pick where to go for dinner for your birthday. My daughter has picked the same place since her third birthday (she’s now eight), Ichiban Japanese Steak House on Highway 153 in Hixson, Tennessee. She really likes it. Why am I so specific with the address? Well, there […]
