After doing my do diligence, I was all set to go to Arnold's Country Kitchen for an authentic meat and three. I considered The Table as a good back up plan.

Turns out neither will be open on Saturday, the only day of the week I'll be in Nashville!!

Any suggestions for good, homestyle meat and threes that would be open on a Saturday?

Thanks!

I think Nana's in Nolensville will be open Saturday, but you might want to call to make sure. It's also a bit of a drive... Nana's Diner Meat & Three - Nolensville, TN

And this place in Franklin is pretty good, even if it is in a generic strip mall - BishopsMeat3.com*|*GOOD TO GO

A lot of meat-and-threes are closed on the weekends...I'm not sure exactly why.

You might have to go with more of a traditional restaurant-style rather than cafeteria style.

Some places you might look into:
Monell's
Puckett's
Loveless Cafe (out past Bellevue)
M & V Famous Soul Food (Smyrna)
Bishop's (Cool Springs)
Sylvan Park
Vittles (Brentwood)
Swett's

There are plenty more places...but I checked and these are open on Saturdays.

I'd do Pucketts. Has atmosphere and 3 locations - Franklin, Downtown Nashville, and Leipers Fork.

Welcome to Puckett's Grocery and Restaurant - Franklin - Nashville

Bishop's is excellent.

I wish City Cafe in Brentwood was open Saturdays.

Cool Cafe also is AMAZING. But closed Saturdays too.



I guess even God took the 7th day off.

If you go to Loveless on a weekend, expect long waits (30+ minutes). Even mid-afternoon. But you can get hot biscuits and iced tea to go in about 5 minutes. My usual post-Trace ride.

FWIW, Bailey & Cato at McGavock and Riverside in East Nashville (South Inglewood?) is criminally unsung, in my opinion. Good and CHEAP. Plus, afterward you can go drink across the street at the Village Pub. It's a win-win.

Wmsn4Life- I'm surprised to hear you mention Bishop's. We tried it when it first opened, and everything was so salty we couldn't eat it. Gave it a "new place pass" and went back a few months later. Sadly, same problem. Are you saying it deserves a third shot?

I heard that Lovelace changed hands and the food and service have declined.

We weren't very impressed with Bishops either. We've eaten there twice, and both times didn't really like it.
Nana's in Nolensville is really great. We've been a few times for Sat. lunch with out of town guests, and we browse the little stores and visit the Amish Feed Mill after we eat. The Feed Mill usually has music on Saturdays and it's a great place to buy treats for later.
We like Vittles too. They went through a downturn in quality when they opened the Franklin location, but once they closed it, it went back to being as good as it was orignially, IMO.

We've lived in Nashville for 13 years and never eaten at Loveless.
