Everyone has their favorite meat-and-three, but Arnold’s probably tops more lists, as evidenced by the cross-section of Nashvillians who line up daily for the fried green tomatoes, peppery roast beef, turnip greens, bread pudding and chocolate pie. Presided over for two decades by the curmudgeonly but lovable Jack Arnold and his luscious, vivacious wife Rose, the dining room has fewer tables than customers, so be prepared to share. Son Kahlil finally talked his parents into bringing back breakfast, and downtown commuters start pulling into the graveled lot just after dawn, lured by the sizzle of bacon and smell of biscuits. The restaurant used to be cash-only, but it has recently begun accepting Visa and MasterCard and opened for breakfast in fall 2006.
