BEST BBQ IN TENNESSEE (INCLUDING MEMPHIS) ... THEY THIN SLICE HAMS (NO SHOULDERS) AND SMOKE... NOT ONLY IS THE MEAT WONDERFUL, BUT BEST SIDES I'VE EVER HAD IN BBQ PLACE. THE HOMEMADE FRIES, COLESLAW AND BAKED BEANS ARE TO DIE FOR. I've eaten there over the last 50 years thousands of times…

Complete with all the fixins, this southern comfort food is sure to satisfy any appetite. Their recipes have been gathered over three generations of the Proffitt family with strong roots in the south and its tradition of BBQ. The whole family can experience hickory smoked barbecue the way it should…

“Drive to the top and across the earthen dam. one of only two in the USA. Enjoy the Weir Dam which aerates water flowing to trout fishing below the Dam and allows water to be drawn down in the winter months. Incredible and breathtaking. ”

Bakery
“Beautiful NY style bagels. They offer several varieties to choose from. You can get them plain, with a smear of cream cheese, or as a sandwich. Note - they are closed on Saturdays! They also have some of the best homemade soup you will ever eat. My favorite is the Chicken & wild rice and Tomato Basil. ”
