Near Music City Center in Nashville

Hi All - I am searching for recommendations for good BBQ that are walking distance from the Music City Center in Nashville for an upcoming conference there. Normally, the exhibitors don't have much time on their own during a conference so the closer the better. The hope is to avoid bad and overpriced chain hotel food and instead grab a taste of local flavor. I don't know the area at all, so any advice or help is appreciated. Thank you.

  1. Your best option is Peg Leg Porker on Gleaves Street which is less than half a mile away from the MCC. I would also strongly urge you to try Arnold's (meat & 3)which is fairly close to Peg Leg.

    Barlines inside the Omni Hotel will be another good option for local flavors, but not necessarily bbq.

    Etch Restaurant on Demonbreun which is about a 5 minute walk from the MCC would be a great choice for more high end dining. Considered one of the best restaurants in Nashville.

    1. Thank you for these suggestions!
