Re: “Carmike Bellevue 8

I've been to this theatre several times & found it satisfactory. The admission price of 5.50 after 4 pm is Great and is unmatched. So what if its not "new". Only problem I found was too cold one time but warmed up later on after movie playing awhile.

Re: “360 Burger

Stepped in for a few, but stayed for awhile. Cool spot to for date night. Just a bit dark and the TVs could be larger. The food smelled great, I had already eaten but I live close and will be back!

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

Went for the first time two weekends ago and it was great, yeah the building is old but completely clean. This is from a person with asthma and allergies, so you know it is not dusty and moldy like some cheap theaters. Snacks are normal Carmike price which is slightly cheaper then Regal. I rated comparing to the average regular priced theaters, and the only draw backs are the seats aren't inclined like most modern theaters and the reels can be obviously used, but hey you pay $2 so on that scale it's 5 stars. against regular theaters I'd say 3.5 to be precise.

Re: “Tamarind Indian Bistro

Tamarind's is a fine place to eat: savory lamb vindaloo, delicately flavored biryani, fluffy naan, puffy poori and tasty aloo gobi.

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

I am giving a four star rating... cost of a movie and refreshments is very reasonable. Even though the theater is dated, the facilities were clean. Friendly and courteous staff is a plus as well.

Re: “Cross Corner Bar and Grill

Been going to this place for about 14 years now. The food is great, Burgers and Catfish along with an outstanding side salad are just amazing. Went there last night and for the 2nd time in my life I did not tip, the waitress Brittany was just terrible. If I heard "I will be right back" one more time I was going to lose it in there and after spending most of our time watching her run around the bar/restaurant like a chicken with her head cut off finally I had to flag her down to get our change and card back. She gave us our bill and she told me to figure it out. If I go back there it is going to be if she is not there, no way in H--L do I want to deal with her ever again.

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

I hate spending $10+dollars at the regular theater for something you can see a few weeks later for $2.00! Not the most updated theater in town and I have wondered about the police yellow tape on some of the back seats :(. But, it's close to home and I enjoy being able to go out for a cheap date. The staff is very kind and polite which I believe is truly important even at a discount. I haven't taken advantage of Tuesday $1.00 popcorn and soda night but I will soon!

Re: “Mellow Mushroom

Great pizza and beer selection. It is a bit pricey, but worth the money in the end.

Re: “Smyrna Public Library

This is my favorite place in Smyrna (an oxymoron,I know,but still...) It has a pretty little muck of a pond with a fountain & lovely old willow trees. When I lived there this was my oasis...

Re: “Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

I've eaten here several times now, and there's not a lot to say other than the chicken is really good; My favorite in town. If you know the intersection of 19th & Broadway, you know you shouldn't arrive expecting to park right at the location, so expect to walk a block or more to get there. Sometimes you get lucky and there is a space in the lot during off-peak. Also, you are going to wait for your chicken; It's cooked to order and the kitchen is small. Again, arriving off-peak will get you faster service, and ensure all the seats aren't taken. Finally, the chicken is fried proper, and tastes great. I recommend the dark portions. You get an entire joint, thigh and leg, and they are much more moist than the white portions. Skip the small plates and pony up the extra couple of bucks for the large plates. Take home the extra pieces of chicken for a midnight snack, as it's well worth the minimal added cost. I've tried all the heat: The Hot is REALLY hot for most folks. The Damn Hot is my favorite, but I would not recommend Damn Hot or Shut-the-cluck-up to those who are not melt-your-face junkies like I am. If you find after the fact that your order is too mild, they'll happily provide you with a ramikin of their sauce on the side. I always get greens and fries with my plate, but really, let's face it, you don't go to Hattie B's for the sides. The greens are good, the fries are standard issue crinkle fries, and they taste fine. The banana pudding gets raved about, but I haven't tried it. The beer is a real plus at a hot chicken joint, because nothing goes better with fried food of your choice than an cold brew. The staff has always been very nice. So, in conclusion, I highly recommend Hattie B's. Five stars for the chicken and staff, but the parking and seating bring down the rating just a tad, let's say to about 4.2 stars. Enjoy!

Re: “Hattie B’s Hot Chicken

We were starving and wanted something hot but we also wanted chicken so we went to Hattie B’s Hot Chicken. When we arrived, the aroma met us at the door. The first thing I saw was Miss Renita with her big grin, and a big ass chalkboard menu on the wall. The décor is nice and the establishment is very clean. This chicken joint does not have a lot of seating inside, but it has plenty on the covered front porch.

They offer white and dark meat chicken, wings, tenders (grilled or fried), and ½ bird. The temps that you can get are Southern which has no heat; Mild a touch of heat, Hot they say is just right, and DAMN HOT. They also offer various southern side dishes, desserts; beer, fountain drinks, tea, and lemonade (needed some more sugar). I sampled the southern greens they were ok, but not the favorite. We both ordered DAMN HOT tenders with some fries, pimento mac & cheese (creamy and stupendous), baked beans, and slaw. When that sauce says “DAMN HOT” it felt like the devil was tap dancing on my tongue with hot shit on his shoes. The chicken was tasty (tasted a lot of cayenne pepper), but all I could finish was the sides, pickles, and bread. On the other hand he finished my chicken and his and didn’t even take a sip of water until it was all gone. One thing is the menu said “JUMBO TENDERS” but they were normal size; however we also enjoyed the banana pudding it was really F’ing awesome. We talked to and overheard people saying that the chicken, service, and wait time is better here than at other hot chicken places.

There is not a lot of parking in there lot cause Gigi’s has a sign for most of the spots. The service was great Miss Renita made our night we joked, laughed, and she made us feel right at home. The chicken is worth going back for as well as the staff. This place is a real game changer for midtown.

Re: “Burger Up

Nashville is known for country music, George Straight, guitars, hot chicken and more country music. But Nashville is starting to break ground in the food culture. They’re doing so by making some really good ass burgers. Nashville’s very own Battle of the Burgers: as what we like to call it, is starting to turn heads and heighten our taste buds. So of course we had to go to Burger Up. I’ve heard really good things about this place and very few people seem to not like this place. So naturally, we had to go give this place our hit and review.

From the start, I got the “Urban Outfitters” vibe as soon as we walked through the door. Everything was so sleek with wood seats, wooden bar and yes, wooden tables. The gigantic windows allow the sun to shine through, which gives the place more warmth and life. It is as if Urban Outfitters had branched off and made a burger joint (home of the tight pants and deep v-necks). No mainstream found here, just a vintage look and Neutral Milk Hotel playing in the background. Ok, ok…That was a bit of a stretch, BUT this place puts out a great vibe, it makes you want to come back.

Now to the good stuff! The burgers were unbelievably good. It caught me off guard, on how good they truly were. Every ingredient is local. The beef is organically fed for all you healthy picky ass eaters. We ordered two burgers, the recommended Woodstock burger, which has Benton’s bacon, white cheddar, and Jack Daniel’s maple ketchup on it. That shit was great. It actually tasted fresh, which seems odd to say, but that was the first thought that popped into my head. The second burger that was ordered was the turkey burger. GOOD GAWD! Best turkey burger I’ve ever had the pleasure to eat thus far. Thumbs up to the cook. The burgers were done right. The truffle fries made for a great side (golden brown with a little salt). The homemade ketchup they served went well with the burgers and fries. It doesn’t taste like normal ketchup, a bit on the sweeter side, but something definitely to give a try. For dessert we shared the Krispy Kreme doughnut pudding with grand mariner crème anglaise. Sounds like some fancy shit, right? Well it melted in my mouth. So fresh, so delicious, and so gone off my plate, well that’s all I got to say about that. Plain and simple, it was great and I recommend you try that good ass dessert when you eat there.

Everyone has an opinion, but too many people are complaining about the prices at this nice burger joint. They use great quality products, so you will spend a little extra cash for that. I love that they offer tons of items like chicken wings, salads, fried oysters, and plenty of burgers (that’s a given). Burger Up fits right in the neighborhood of 12th South. The only question I have is ,when will they make those vintage, extra washed, overpriced wool Burger Up tee’s that we all crave for (ha ha), and are those tight ass nut hugging jeans part of their uniform?!

Re: “The Yellow Porch

My wife and I set out about two years ago to work our way through the local restaurants by having a Saturday lunch at a different restaurant every week. The Yellow Porch has certainly made tour goal difficult as we seem to have been pulled back to this (almost) hidden treasure in Berry Hill.Of late we seem to find excuse to route our errands down Thompson Lane and oh! There's The Yellow Porch. Let's grab a quick cup of celery bleau cheeze soup as long as we're this close. We are always treated as friends dropping in and not as customers and as we look around it seems everyone else has the same impression. Please keep up the good work.

Re: “Burger Up

Whoa baby! Killer burgers! My husband and I have been on a quest for awesome burgers in and around Nashville. This place came very close to 5 stars. Very nice vintage decor, although felt a little fancy for a burger joint. Luckily it wasn't crowded, I think we came on the early bird side. The service was... ok, we were not ignored, but not really waited on either. My husband was asked if he wanted a drink refill only after they took our plates away; to be fair, we do eat quickly. As we were waiting for the check, i noticed that all of the men working had the exact same big black plastic hipster eye-glasses and I pondered if that was just a coincidence or part of the uniform.

Ok, now for the burgers. Juicy, extremely flavorful beef, nice char and cooked to a perfect medium rare. The mouth watering bacon that came on my burger was thick cut, sweet and smokey. Really fantastic! The lightly sweet and soft bun complimented the burger and took it to an exceptional level. My only complaint was the size of the burger. It was too small. I wanted more! It was $11 for an, albeit incredibly delicious, but disappointingly small burger. Next time that I go, and I will be back, I will order a double. I'm not exactly sure what that will do to the price, but I think it will be worth it!

Oh, and I loved the fries. They were crisp, salty, and hand cut. The specials also looked amazing, again, next time I will branch out. This visit was for a straight up burger review!

Re: “Los Arcos

For Mexican Food by far this is my favorite spot in Nashville.
Service is great, food is delicious, and the decor breath taking. I took my mom for her birthday, they went out of their way to make her a fresh made margarita instead of serving her a house made with cheap tequila that only gives you a headache. I was impressed, that little detail has me going back at least once a month.

Re: “Peter's Sushi And Thai

Great sushi restaurant in/near the city. I've been to some of the more expensive/upscale sushi bars in the city, they are not even close to having the service, quality and freshness of sushi as Peter's. If you want to be seen go to the other places, if you want great sushi with good service go to Peter's.
