The thing to do after you take a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery, which is located in Lynchburg about an hour south of Nashville, is have lunch at Miss Mary Bobo's Boarding House. Situated just off the small-town village square, the historic home is consistently praised for their traditional southern food. Reservations are required for an 11am or a 1pm seating, where in one of the many dining rooms guests enjoy a family style lunch. The fried chicken and meatloaf being served that day were the best I have ever had. The classic sides were expertly prepared - mac and cheese, buttery baked potatoes, green beans with country relish, and their famous apples stewed in Jack Daniels Whiskey along with crispy nuggets of fried okra. For dessert, a rich, gooey and slightly spicy chocolate chess pie, topped with JD whipped cream. Miss Mary's was collectively our favorite meal of the trip, and one of our favorite experiences overall to boot.
