Michell Delicatessen for Lunch 2009
We headed to Nashville for the Country Music Marathon 2009. The race was hot, but the food was mouth-watering…
Here’s Part 3 of my Nashville eating experience: Mitchell Delicatessen
Our last stop before heading home from Nashville was a place just outside the city. OK, the girls joked that we were in the middle of nowhere, but it literally took us all of 15 minutes to get there, so it’s not really that far out of the way. Oh, and even if it was, it would be worth it!
We showed up early for lunch (around 10:45) and that was probably a good thing. A few diners were having a late breakfast (which looked great and is something I’d definitely try some time), but there was a line out the door by the time we finished eating. Many Chowhounds that suggested Mitchells in previous posts have noted that the Benton’s Bacon is phenomenal. I’m happy to say that they were not lying. I ordered the Turkey, Avocado, Bacon, Cheddar, and Sprouts Sandwich. The girls both tried the BLT. Our other companion went with that day’s special: the Meatloaf Sandwich. We split a few bags of the Blair’s Habanero Potato Chips and the basil potato salad. There was nothing ordered that was not tasty, but my sandwich was so good everyone took a bite. Twice. If I ate there often, I would order any of our sandwiches and some of the others from the menu (the Italian sounded good). But if I was only able to eat there one more time, I would order two TABCaS Sandwiches. It was just that good.
Lunch for four including bottled soda, but not tip was around $30. They could charge $15 for my sandwich and I’d still order it.
One last time, thanks to all the Chowhounds that suggested Mitchells. Without your input, we would probably have never found these incredible places to eat. I just hope we have more time on our next trip to Nashville. I’d hate to come back just to eat at the same places again…but I would.
