Yuk!!!. I had a coupon to this restaurant in my Entertainment Book 07. Thought I would try it out as I love meat and 3's. We went on a Wednesday. 2 of the 5 vegetable offerings were sold out. Whoever heard of running out of mac & cheese? Anyway, I had liver and onions, green beans, mashed potatoes and a roll. The liver and onions was beef liver, not calf liver as I was expecting. (Should have asked first, I know.) It was as thin as cardboard and tasted like it had been cooked last week, inedible. The mashed potatoes had the skin on and tasted dirty. The green beans were the most acceptable thing I ordered next to the iced tea. The roll was hard as a brick. My friend ordered roast beef, pinto beans, and mashed potatoes. She agreed with me on the potatoes; her pintos tasted like bar-b-que beans and she said the roast beef was okay. After 4 or 5 bites we paid and left. Total waste of $13 w/coupon. Never again. Should be closed down.
Was I at the wrong White Trash Cafe???. My boyfriend and I went in here this past saturday afternoon and I have to say this was by far and away the WORST food and service that I have ever experienced. My BF had the catfish, mac'n cheese, & potatoes and I had the BBQ chicken, mac'n cheese & red beans and rice. My BF said the catfish was edible but salty however the rest of the meal tasted like instant from a box. My BBQ chicken was the worst tasting stuff I have ever had, I almost doubt that it was chicken. When I asked her to just take it off the bill as i had just barely touched it she looked at me like I was asking for a lung. Since I have moved on to the service, the server was crazy enough to say that she was the only server and she was sorry, well we looked around and there was only one other couple in there. The point is the food and service was horrible, maybe we were at some twisted twin sister of the same name becasue the reviews that we read leading us here and the actual experience were night and day.
best meat and three. white trash cafe was amazing. food was awesome, customer service even better. unique and fun - perfect place to bring out of town guests.
You HAVE to visit this one!. The White Trash Cafe was the first stop my husband and I made on our way into Nashville for a no kids getaway over New Years weekend. And we are so happy that it was! It was the perficet start to a VERY fun weekend in Music City. The decor of the place had us giggling vefore we even went in and it was even more fun on the inside! The food was great and the people there were even better! They could not have been any nicer and they made my husband and I feel like part of the family. We had perfectly cooked eggs, potatoes, grits and bacon that they maple cure in house, I was practically licking my plate. Before we left, they brought us a little bowl of their turnip greens they were going to serve on New Years Day... they were so good, my husband talked about them the rest of the weekend. Needless to say, we made the last stop of our vacation a return trip to The White Trash Cafe for a fabulous lunch and more friendly conversation. We feel like we have friends in Nashville now and will make a point of going back to thes fun, friendly, delicious cafe every time we can!
Just a really good breakfast!. My wife and I had breakfast here last week, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We both cleaned our plates! The potatoes with onions are some of the best I've ever had. Everything else was cooked exactly as we ordered and tasted great. My wife likes peanut butter with her pancakes so she asked the owner if they had any. He checked, and discovered that they didn't have any. He then was nice enough to walk across the street to a market and purchase peanut butter for her ! We were very impressed by this.! We definately will go back if for nothing else than the decorating, which is (to say the least) interesting...
The only thing missing in Chicago is The White Trash Cafe!! 2 thumbs up and more.. My sister and I came to Nashville from Chicago for a short visit. We had read about White Trash Cafe on City Search and put that on the top of our list of places to visit. We had the best time there. The food was great. I only wish I could have eaten more. The nana pudding was to die for. You feel welcome from the time you walk in the door till it's time to leave. The zany lady at the register should be in the movies. The waitresses were excellent. They did everything but cut the meat and feed it to us. And they probally would have if we asked. Our coffee mugs never were empty and believe me we drink a lot of coffee. The young man who owns the place was friendly and spent a lot of time talking with us. We would have loved to buy a cook book of all his great recipes. The cole slaw and cucumber salads were my personal favorites. If he ever decides to open a Cafe in the Chicago area it would be great to work for him. I hope he opens more Cafes like this. The other diners were also very nice. Everyone was chatty and seemed to be enjoying themselves. The prices can't be beat. If you go bring along a camera and take a picture in the bathtub that sits outside.
Fun atmosphere and great service!. We had a party of 18 and had made arrangements before hand. When we arrived everything was setup and the employees were so accommodating and friendly. The atmosphere was very fun. Looking at all the crazy stuff inside was the best part. The service was very quick and accurate. We really enjoyed the white trash cafe and would recommend it to anyone who lives or is going to visit Nashville.
not just lunch any more: yummy breakfast too!. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, Art is What You Can Get Away With, but ambience aside, when you want some of mama's home cooking without the hugs or the nagging as the case may be, The White Trash Cafe is the place to forget the real world and indulge in the comfort of chicken and dumplings, or chicken any old way that mama or grandma would make. The potpies are a nice big serving and taste like you remember. On Fridays, you might want to get there before one if you really want some catfish. Yes, I am southern, and yes I love my beans and taters. I love all the beans here, especially the bowl of white beans and cornbread. The taters not so much; I don't care for skins in mashed taters. The breakfast taters however are wonderful, skin and all. I had the taters and onions and they were better than I ever make at home and I've been practicing for years. The eggs were done how I asked, and the biscuit tasted real. The coffee was good and kept coming. This was my first breakfast at the White Trash, but it won't be the last.
Food bland...fun atmosphere.
The place is unique and fun...lots of "off the wall" decor. We had read so many good reviews about the restaurant that we were really looking forward to having a meal there....but when we got our meal we were SO dissapointed! I had the blackened baked catfish and my partner had the meatloaf. The blandest meal we have had in a long time. The sides (mac & cheese, mashed potatoes, peas) were also very bland and below average.
The explanation to this could be that these other people that have written reviews had really bad meals when they were kids....I would not recommend the place.
If you have discerning taste buds and like restaurants like The Cheesecake Factory, Morton's, PF Chang's, Carraba's, etc ...........don't waste your time here.
More treasure than trash, this meat-and-three pleases with traditional Southern fare..
This colorful little cinder block building by the fairgrounds is like weird modern art in progress. Get past the quirky art and knickknacks to find a solid meat-and-three menu that changes daily. There's fried chicken on Tuesdays and catfish on Fridays. At least one of the holy trinity of white "vegetables"--mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and white beans--are on the menu every day. Although the cornbread ain't sweet, the tea sure is.
