Best East Nashville Grocery Store 

Bill Martin's Food Store

Is it safe, you ask? Bill Martin's, at the corner of Fatherland and South 11th Street, is as tidy as it's been since the store's founding some 40-odd years ago. Need more reassurance? On a recent visit, a 6-foot-4-inch East Precinct police officer was helping bag groceries. But is it fresh? Last week, the butcher practically forced this writer to buy a rack of ribs. "This is what you want," he said. "Buy 'em. Put 'em in your freezer if you have to." Sure enough, they were fresh, meaty and tender––and only $5 for the whole rack! How about cleanliness? "100%" reads the Metro Health Department inspection score hanging in Bill Martin's deli––home to the best fried chicken south of Bailey & Cato Family Restaurant. Hit the Turnip Truck for your arugula, essential oil and artisan cheese, but get your milk, meat and cabbage at Bill Martin's. They've got 'em fresh, cheap and attitude-free. PAUL V. GRIFFITH
