Bristol, TN - Need rec's for breakfast/lunch/LATE dinner - Very Casual places

  • 2

HI, we're going to Bristol on Aug 20, 21 & 22 for race weekend. We are renting a house, but I won't have the address until we get there. First we need a restaurant with a bar in the vicinity of 26A sixth street. That's the address of the rental office where we will go to find out where the house is. We want to meet at a place to eat and have a drink and then go to the rental office.
Next, we need all your favorites in the Bristol area, preferably not too close to the race track as I'm sure those will be absolutely jam-packed at any given time. Late night places would be greatly appreciated, I'm sure we'll be hungry after the races. Thank you for any info that you can provide.

      1. In the vicinity of 6th Street there are some fine restaurants. Troutdale Bistro at 724 State Street is owned by a company that has several restaurants in the Bristol area. TD Bistro is a block W of your rental office on 6th Street. Troutdale Dining Room at 412 6th Street is a fine dining restaurant that's about 4/5 blocks S of your rental office on 6th Street. TD Bistro is more casual and I think you would enjoy dining there. C J & Co. is in the same block as your rental office on 6th Street. They serve a great lunch. Java J's is a good breakfast or lunch place. Manna Bagel has a good breakfast. State Line Bar and Grill is a lot of fun and JJ Downtown Pub and Grub serves great food. Brooklyn Grill is a casual fine dining restaurant serving outstanding seafood and steaks.

        The Burger Bar and Hi Lo Burger have good food also. Simply Delicious is a nice deli type place on your way to Speedway on Highway 11E/19. Philadelphia Grill, Fatz Cafe and Ed's Pizza are on that route also.

        The Speedway is 7 miles SW of Bristol, TN on US 11E/19. Ridgewood BBQ in Bluff City, TN has the best BBQ in TN. It is about 4/5 miles S of the Speedway. Take Highway 34 S from Bristol about 12 miles then take a left on Highway 37. Go about 2 miles and take a right on Elizabethon Highway the go half a mile to Ridgewood BBQ.

        Ridgewood BBQ @ 900 Elizabethton Hwy., Bluff City, TN 423 - 538 - 7543.
