Meat-and-three restaurants have long provided common ground for Nashville’s blue- and white-collar populations, but Swett’s is distinguished by having the most racially mixed dining room as well. The family still uses the recipes handed down from family matriarch Susie, who opened the restaurant in 1954 with husband Walter, and everything is made fresh daily. Pig’s feet, when available, always sell out; the smothered beef tips, fried chicken and collard greens are other specialties.
