Mothership BBQ in Nashville closed?

We're in Nashville for about 10 days and I went to find Mothership BBQ, as I'd read about it on CH. Couldn't find it. I looked on Columbine behind Baha Burrito (very good), and all around the area. It was Sunday, so I know that it would have been closed, but I couldn't find it. If it's closed, what bbq place is good? Thanks.

  1. It closed 1-2 months ago. I believe the owners have a new investor and are looking for a new location. They said their location on Columbine was just too far off the beaten path.

      Thanks Jennie. Any suggestions on where to go? I went to Jim and Nicks on Charlotte last time I was here. It was very good--a chain, but a good one. I've seen a place on West End--Lonnies, I think. It was closed the last time I was here, but I've seen smoke, so there must be fire. Any good?

        Everyone is saying the best bbq right now is Martin's in Nolensville TN, about 30 minutes outside of Nashville. I haven't been yet, but it's on my eat at soon list.

        In town, Hog Heaven near Centennial Park is good.

          Thanks jennie. I was just reading about Martin's this morning. I read most of his blog. Can't wait to go.

            I second teh Hog Heaven vote
            It is a definite hole in the wall with no dining other than a few picnic tables or Centennial Park nearby, but it's my fave BBQ in Nashville....the smoked chicken with white BBQ sauce is delish. If you want to further the splurge, go for the mashed potatoes and/or corncakes. Enjoy!

          Don't neglect Mary's on Jefferson St. Try the BBQ on cornbread. You could eat off the floor there as well.

            I'd like to hear more of the details of your last trip to Mary's. I used to love it, but the last time I visited about 6 years ago and I said I'd never go back. The 'cue was drenched in sauce and sitting in a slow cooker. It tasted like that "barbecue" my mom used to make, which was just pork should cooked in barbecue sauce. (However, the blazing house fire we passed at the crack house down the road from Mary's was excellent entertainment.)
