Re: “400 Degrees Hot Chicken Opens Outpost in Antioch

Well A and C is much better. They actually marinate the chicken rather than slapping some hot chili on it and throwing it in the fryer.

Re: “Weekly Open Thread — Food Issue Edition: Where Do You Like to Dine With Best Friends?

Mexican, preferably on a patio. Nothing brings together a group of amigos quite like cheap margs and queso. My favorites are Five Points Cocina Mexicana, El Mariachi on Thompson Lane, El Jaliciense, and Tequila's in West Nashville. The $20 Top Shelf pitcher special on Sundays at El Mariachi is one of the best drink deals around.

Re: “More Baseball Food Options — Including Hot Chicken — for the Sounds' New Stadium and Beyond

Now that Pepperfire's vacating that space, i'd love to see someone like Riverside Grill shack fill the void there. Have a drink at Hop stop, Mickey's, then choose between Guatemalan or a slammin' burger next door? Yes, please.

12 South Taproom, Peg Leg and Bricktop's. All places where you know you're going to enjoy your meal and get good service. Very reliable which makes for a good hang with friends.

Re: “Harris Teeter's Four Nashville Stores to Close; Three Will Reopen as Krogers

The location at the 70/100 split. I just found out it was a Steven's, and before that a store called Sunflower.

Re: “Harris Teeter's Four Nashville Stores to Close; Three Will Reopen as Krogers

@BP — Which location? The Hillsboro Village site was previously a smaller Compton's grocery store. Not all neighbors were thrilled by Harris Teeter coming in. From 1999:

The Compton's store closed in 2000, and the building was destroyed by fire in 2001. Then construction began on the current Harris Teeter.

What was in this location before it was Harris-Teeter?

Re: “Five Guys in Green Hills Closes; Menswear Store to Fill Hill Center Space

oh nooo. :(

I loved this spot, it was so close to where I live! My girlfriend and I would always go on cheap date nights. It will be greatly missed. Green Hills really lacks good places to eat on the cheap, IMHO. This place has never let me down.

I don't care how thin the burger is, I don't care that they don't make it medium rare.
I love the taste of the burger, sans the bun, wrapped in oodles of lettuce, and I eat it with a fork and knife. I do!and they over compensate the burger with a mountain of good tasty fries.

I know, I know, this is not Gabby's.
But hey..... when you're jonesing for a burger and fries, and you don't feel like cooking, and it's Sunday, Five Guys is open! I first found out about them and a few other restaurants here

Re: “Green Hills Grille to Reopen this Summer, Alegria Moving to West End

the prices are so reasonable. The burger was $10 and my BLT was $12. They included 1 side and since it's not a typical restaurant, the credit card slip doesn't have an option to tip (though I'm sure you can if you have some cash). They also offer root beer on tap and iced tea.

Re: “Don’t Miss The Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday

@loveandnachos Yes! Aside from gawking at all the costumed anime characters and enjoying the entertainment, there was a bounce house last year, lots of tables set up for artwork, balloon animals, and, of course, the fountains to play in. My daughter had a fantastic time.

Re: “Harris Teeter's Four Nashville Stores to Close; Three Will Reopen as Krogers

Meant to type "mid- to low-end" brands -- couldn't find an edit button.

I'm also going to miss the buy-2-get-3-free and e-vic weekly specials. At least with summer coming, the bulk of our grocery shopping will be at various farmer's markets.

Re: “Harris Teeter's Four Nashville Stores to Close; Three Will Reopen as Krogers

Unfortunately, Publix doesn't cut it. In terms of customer service, they are great, but they sell the usual mid- to low-in brands that Kroger sells. For its smaller size, Harris Teeter sold a large range of products that couldn't be found anywhere else. I, too, adored Utz potato chips (although I will never shop at a Wallmart for a variety of reasons), and I just discovered the remarkable Guiness chips at the HT at the split.

Kroger can run all the ads they want to about customer service, but it just isn't there. Kroger's salad bar, bakery items, in-store prepared foods paled in comparison to HT's. Don't even get me started on their awful seafood dept.

Kroger has eliminated double couponing in most of its market. I see that day coming here soon.

Re: “Harris Teeter's Four Nashville Stores to Close; Three Will Reopen as Krogers

For Beyond Crazy; the trick with Melrose Kroger, much like TJ's and WF, is to go at off times. Also, I heard a rumor a few months ago that a Publix will site a store on the old Thoroughbred Motors parcel at the corner of 8th and Craighead.

For Beyond Crazy: The trick with Melrose Kroger is to go at off times, if you can. Then it's fine. Also, I heard a rumor a few months ago that Publix will site a store on or near the old Thoroughbred Motors location on 8th.

Re: “Harris Teeter's Four Nashville Stores to Close; Three Will Reopen as Krogers

I'm sad because the Melrose Kroger is my closest grocery and it's gotten beyond crazy over the past year--like Trader Joe's on a Sunday afternoon but everyday. The Hillsboro HT was my other option and the only place that carries things like Aidel's chicken chorizo. I would love another alternative to Kroger in the Melrose area...like Publix, Earth Faire or something else entirely.
