A full menu of burgers, steaks, beer, and more welcomes guests to Embers, where meats are slow-cooked on an open grill fueled by flaming hickory chunks. Glimpse sports action on one of the bar's hi-def televisions before starting the feast with an appetizer of thickly sliced onion rings ($3.95) or a basket of fried, hand-battered pickles ($3.95). Burger buffs can sample the Embers Angus burger, whose 10 oz. compacted disc of premium Black Angus beef is first hand-patted to perfection, then served between the two hemispheres of a toasted kaiser roll with lettuce, tomato, onion, and a pickle ($7.25). Or, make your mouth merry with the delicious flavors of a full rack of baby back pork ribs, which are designed to fall off the bone like jam sandwiches sliding from a flimsy picnic plate ($16.99). For the quenching of thirst, the bar stocks a rotating selection of drafts and a large gathering of domestic and imported beers.

“They’re not your grand momma’s grits,” Glenn Truelove said of his take on the southern staple in an interview with WSMV. The Tennessee native serves up the creamy, savory Southern staple with a twist, adding tomatoes, spices, and lots of cheese. Though Glenn has been making grits for years, they couldn’t have been further from his mind when he decided to open up a pizza restaurant in his hometown. It wasn’t until his girlfriend Kathy, co-owner of the restaurant, suggested he add them to the menu that Truelove’s Pizza & Grits was truly born. Today, pizza and grits co-star on the eatery’s simple menu, which is written in chalk above the counter. Thin-crust pizzas are homemade to order and then topped with handfuls of mozzarella cheese, sauce, and fresh veggies. Grits can be served alone as a tasty side dish, or accompany an entrée such as grilled chicken or grilled shrimp. In the dining room, the family-friendly restaurant feels a lot like an Italian bistro with exposed brick walls, checkered tablecloths, and colorful artwork designed to match the tableware.
