Bailey and Cato
East Nashville mourned the closing of soul food meat and three favorite Bailey and Cato in 2016, but thankfully second-generation owner-operator Derrick Bailey revived the restaurant in February 2018 a few miles away in a Madison strip mall. Expect satisfying renditions of barbecued ribs, fried chicken, mac and cheese, black eyed peas, sweet potatoes and cornbread. Specials include chicken neck bones on Tuesdays, catfish on Fridays, pig’s feet on Saturdays, and chitterlings the first Friday each month.
No alcohol available. Serving lunch and dinner 11 am-10 pm Tue-Wed, 11 am-11 pm Thu-Sat, noon-10 pm Sun. Closed Mon.
