  • Papa Turney's
    The new Nashville Shores Marina location offers outdoor deck seating overlooking the J. Percy Priest Lake. They also provide live blues and jazz on Friday, Saturday and Sunday featuring performers including local artists like John Richards and Gil Gann. The tale of Papa Turney's begins humbly, in a tiny trailer with a hickory smoker out back. Every Saturday, barbecue aficionados Mike Turney and his wife Mrs. Irene would open up the trailer for business, doling out plates of slow-smoked meats to an ever-growing following of devoted diners. When demand for Mike's tender brisket and fall-off-the-bone pork ribs grew too great for the little trailer to handle, Mike moved the family-owned and operated business into two full-service restaurant locations, complete with checkered-cloth tables and photograph-speckled walls. Within the restaurants' kitchens, Mike and his chefs continue to whip up the barbecue specialties that made his trailer famous, piling pork, brisket, chicken, and catfish onto sandwiches and plates. The chefs douse the slow-smoked meats in house-made barbecue sauce before pairing them with classic sides of greens and baked beans. They also offer a selection of rotating daily specials, such as bacon-stuffed rib eye and smoked bologna lauded by reporters from Nashville Scene as, "thick-cut and delicious". For dessert, the chef dish out slices of signature pies made fresh 5 days a week, which can also be found on the shelves of local Kroger and Publix grocery stores and cooling on the windowsills of enchanted cottages.

  • Tex's World Famous Bar-B-Q
    Tex's has been serving up authentic Texas barbecue to Nashville for the past 30 years.

Plated options cover all of the barbecue basics, including beef brisket ($6.95), pulled pork ($6.75), smoked turkey breast ($6.95), and smoked sausage ($6.85). Combo plates ($7.99) let you taste test a tad of every meat, as well as two veggies. Everyday side dishes include baked beans, cole slaw, mac 'n' cheese, and turnip greens, and some days feature sides including Cajun rice, steamed cabbage, and black-eyed peas. If you find formal utensils too cumbersome but finger forks too crude, have your helping served to you in between two slices of bread ($2.99–$4.95 for a sandwich) or take your tastes to go and enlist the help of a mama bird in the park.
