Arnold's Country Kitchen | Nashville

The king of meat and three, Arnold's is down-home country cooking at its finest. Cafeteria style service is super friendly, the staff greet you with smiles as they fill a bright red tray with classic, southern soul food. Choices vary daily from the likes of fried chicken, meat loaf, roast beef, sugar cured ham, country fried steak and numerous side specials - green beans and black eyed peas to creamed corn and stewed okra. The fried catfish was expertly breaded and achieved a perfect balance of crispy skin to flaky white meat. On the side, a couple hush puppies, a scoop of mac & cheese so thick and creamy you can feel it coating your ribs, and tender, tangy braised turnip greens. Dessert was a luscious, teeth achingly sweet banana pudding. Other favorites sampled from the girls plates - fried green tomatoes and the strawberry pie. Yes, this is definitely where you want to come for your lunchtime meat and three fix. (Open 10:30 - 2:30 on weekdays only!)
