Great brisket. Large portions.You basically just fill your plate up from he long line of sides they have. You'll never leave this place hungry.

My boss took me here for lunch. Great choice, plenty to choose from, helpful friendly staff but best of all the food was great, best lunch stop I had during the two weeks I had in Nashville. Can't wait to go back.

There is a long standing connection between Texas and Tennessee. You may remember that old Walt Disney movie and title song, "Davy Crockett: King of the Wild Frontier." Well Tennessee is a long way from the frontier now, and a long way from Texas, but we got some plenty good BBQ at Tex's in Tennessee. Tex's is only open from... More

Off the beaten path, and probably not an area many tourists get too, but they should. This place is extremely casual bbq. Pick your meat, pick your sides, move along. Don't miss the jalapeno beans and brisket.

Tex's has sort of a western/saloon thing going on, one that probably hasn't changed much in the thirty-five or so years that they've been open. Essentially this means a lot of iron, antiques, and unfinished barn wood, likely aimed at Nashville's tourist population. These guys offer a suspiciously cheap $9.35 Combo Plate that comes with "All the BBQ's" and two... More
