Blah.... At least they got the name right. It?s a ?meat and three place? and they?re all the same. You get a hunk of mystery meat and a spoonful each of three different greasy vegetables that all taste the same. They toss two pieces of rock hard cornbread on top of it and you?re supposed to wolf the whole thing down in the 20 minutes you?ve got before you have to be back at work. I?d rather eat a Snickers?more nutrition and fewer calories
You'll Feel Welcomed.
I was visiting Nashville and felt welcomed right away when I entered this restaurant. I'd read a favorable description of it in FROMMER'S GUIDE TO NASHVILLE and made it one of my destinations. White Trash Cafe is decorated with memorabilia, but it is not gaudy. In fact, the lights are low, so that, even with sunlight coming in through the front window, you have a feeling of privacy. The name, of course, is humorous, but the affection behind the whole enterprise is genuine. I had smothered chicken with two sidedishes, coffee and a very tasty banana pudding. It was comfort food with a difference: a dash of wit. My pudding had Nilla Wafers and bits of cereal in it. The pudding was heated so that the natural flavor of the banana was enhanced.
I enjoyed it.
Kind of dirty. The food was pretty good, although my meatloaf was dry around the edges. The whole place looked like it could use a good cleaning and their health inspection score was only 84. There wan't anything fun or wacky going on like some other reviews have described. Also, they no longer serve breakfast.
Dinner Rolls!. Dinner rolls! Dinner Rolls! Dinner Rolls! MUST HAVE! Who would have thought you could make a dinner roll so good....but White Trash Cafe did!
Best food in Nashville. The White Trash Cafe has the best food in Nashville. They treat you like family. We travel through Nashville several time each year and always make it a point to eat here. We even made a special trip to Nashville to attend their Dinner Theater (had a blast). I have recommended it to all my friends.
My reason for loving Nashville.
After being told that Nashville had the nicest people, I visited and found very few. I was really disappointed in hospitality until I came to the White Trash Cafe. We went there because Arnold's was closed and we really wanted to try a meat and three. When we came in, we were greeted with a warm smile and a "what can I get for you guys?" Lynn, the owner, is amazing! This man has the perfect attitude for the establishment because he's got a great sense of humor and treats you like an old friend. Knowing that I came from California, he brought out my dessert in a disneyland mug to make me feel closer to home. I'll tell you one thing for sure, that banana pudding puts a smile on my face every time I think of it.
I'm thinking of moving to Nashville and can already say that I've gone to a place that will be a regular visit for me. The food was great and the company and decor only made it better. This is by far my favourite place in Nashville. I'll take the White Trash Cafe over a stuffy restaurant or trendy eatery anyday! Lynn, you're my hero!
Make the Trip - good food, decor and service.
As a tourist to Nashville we found this place on City Search and thought we would give it a try.
It was worth it!! The food was great - I had fried chicken, mashed potatoes and macaroni.
What sets this place apart is the decor: from the dirty tub and toilet displayed outside to the decorations inside, you get the full "white trash" experience here.
We also had great service. Our waiter was able to tell us many tales of Nashville to keep us interested the whole time.
Whether a tourist or local I highly recommending making the trip to White Trash Cafe.
Great food great fun.
I came here to read reviews and was shocked at the reviews for White Trash Cafe. This has to be one of my all time favorite places to eat in Nashville. I eat there once a week or more. The food is always amazing . I think once I went there and did not care for the texure of the steak the owner promptly apologized brought me something else and a dessert on the house..and the atmosphere is just fun. The decor is like Jeff Foxworthy's granny's yard sale gone wild. Every time you go you see something different that you remember from a relatives house that you hoped they would never give you as a gift. lol The service was friendly. They even offered to prepare sweet potatoes special for me because they were not on the menu till the next day.
They offer a choice of every day items that is supplemented by the daily specials. Some of the more popular side items like their homemade Mac n Cheese do run out early. (note to gentleman with the whiney review here). But they are always ready to whip something else up. The owner is often seen sitting with customers like an old friend who is glad to have you come and share a meal.
If you think that many Nashville restaurants take themselves too seriously then you will love the informal atmoshphere and friendly down to earth folk you find at White Trash Cafe.
Greatest food in Nashville Served by a card with hair rollers and houseslippers on!.
