Wendell Smith's

Wendell Smith's



Fourth-generation family owned and operated since opening in 1952, Wendell Smith’s Restaurant has a separate entrance from the family liquor store on this busy, industrialized-turned-hipster corner of West Nashville’s Charlotte Avenue. A delightful collection of locals from suit-and-ties to overalls clamors into the booths and tables for the excellent meat-and-three country cooking. Selections are made from a mimeographed menu that changes daily. The food is quickly delivered to your table, and the service remains unbelievably attentive, as if they’re breaking a local ordinance if your water glass doesn’t remain filled to the brim. You can hardly go wrong with any of the meats and side items.

Kids menu. No alcohol available. Serving breakfast, lunch and early dinner 6 am-7:30 pm Mon-Sat. Closed Sun.

MUST EATS: Open-faced roast beef sandwich, turnip greens, cucumber salad, creamed potatoes, country ham breakfast
