I usually don't go to subway, but I was I was intrigued by the garlic cheese bread. We had this with the spicy Italian subway oh, and put the spicy brown mustard on it and it was amazing. We went back and had it a 2nd time. Great. We also tried the chocolate chip mint cookies, yum. The manager is great, chatted with her and pretty much she is new and getting this place back in order. Thank you!

If you are a fan of Shoneys, this is an excellent restaurant. Easily located off I-40, my husband and I have enjoyed the breakfast and the dinner buffet. Both times, food was tasty, hot and fresh. Staff are friendly and attentive. Highly recommend if you are looking for comfort food.

Stopped by the Ruby Tuesday on a Blue Monday. Place was nearly empty and staff was very uninterested in customer service. Food was OK, but had to get up and ask for a refill on my drink. This was after the waiter dropped off my bill and paid no attention to the empty glass that I sucked dry. Waiter spent more time on his cell phone sitting down. Manager was very nice and kind and took care of the meal cost due to the bad service. She saw me come up to the bar and get my glass refilled. I don't know, maybe going on a Tuesday might be a better day to go get better service. Maybe Ruby would be there!

Meathouse

Reviewed By Gatorgolfer

We wanted to drive our convertible on some nice twisty roads, so we picked Meathouse as a destination about an hour from home, based largely on TA recommendations.The restaurant is long and skinny, with booths in the front and some tables in the back. We were after the lunch rush, if there was one....we were the only customers at about 1 PM. The decor is meh, and kind of worn, but ok for a joint.The menu has burgers, sandwiches, plus bbq chicken, brisket, pulled pork and ribs. Also specials like pork chops, chicken fried steak, etc.We each ordered a half rack of ribs, which come with fries, baked beans and slaw. First the sides were very good, and baked beans were even excellent.The ribs remind me of ribs we used to get in Wisconsin, not cooked long and slow, no obvious bark on them, or smoky taste, cooked until they fall off the bone, and slathered with a lot of sweet sauce to produce some "bbq" taste. So, if that is how you like them, you will indeed like them. If you like them so that they have some "chew" and you have to tug the meat off the bone with your teeth, and if you like dry rub, or smokey so that there is bark and obvious smoke penetration into the meat, and served dry with a variety of sauces that you can or cannot add....then you won't like them.So...i'll bet the burgers and daily specials are good, and maybe or maybe not some of the other bbq items, but we both thought the ribs were mediocre...

Recently visited this restaurant twice with great service and food both times! We both ordered a burger with blue cheese on it and oh my goodness! DELICIOUS! The potato cakes they serve with sour cream are very good! Our server Brandon took care of us both visits and was top notch! Very attentive both trips. Very pleased with the food and service

Reviewed By TNTraveler2003

I'll start off by saying I like Roane Street Grill and their food is generally great. Today however, the service was lacking. We waited up front for probably 3-4 minutes before anyone acknowledged us to be seated. The first waitress took our drink order but never brought our drinks. A second waitress took our drink order again and brought them out. We ordered our meals which took around 25-30 minutes to receive. Other tables were seated after us and got their food much quicker than we did. They blamed it on being busy, yet the restaurant wasn't half full at the time. Lastly, we were charged extra for a side that came with the meal. We discussed it with the waitress and she removed the charge. It seems that more cooks and/or servers are needed to help RSG function at it's best. I think the food is good and I want to support a locally owned business, but with service like this they make it really hard. Please work for improvement!

Wendell's Diner

Reviewed By David L

My parents live in Midtown and any time I go visit, I have to go to Wendell’s. One of my favorite things to eat in the world is a Philly Cheesesteak. It’s kind of a dual edged sword since I get disappointed often. Not at Wendell’s it’s called a Knight Rider staying with the 80s theme. The only thing is I wish they had provolone cheese, but Swiss is good. Yes I know a real Philly Cheesesteak has cheez whiz and that is an option, but I like provolone better. I’ve also had the country fried steak blue plate special and it was good, but still I’m all about the Knight Rider. The only bad thing about the place is sometimes they don’t pay enough attention to drinks. Granted I usually drink a glass of coke before my food comes because I stay thirsty. It’s about the only thing that bothers me. I don’t care if a waitress is rude, just don’t let me run out of drink. Wendell’s is small and I just walk to the counter and they get it for me right away.

Cracker Barrel

Reviewed By Konasmother

Busy, busy day here! We met our kids so we were a party of 6, and the wait was lengthy, but understandable. It was close to noon but we all ordered breakfast. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. Personally, I am not a fan of the hash brown casserole although it must be popular. I asked for crispy bacon, but it wasn’t. Due to it being Mother’s Day, they did a pretty good job. It was hard to have a conversation because of the number of people in the restaurant. A visit at another time might yield a better assessment.
