Have you had a long week at the bench and need a great lunch or dinner break? You don’t have to go far off of campus to “get away”! Check out some of our faculty and student’s favorite spots that you can walk to from campus.
What is your favorite just-off-campus venue and why?
Taco Mamacita- it has the weirdest but tastiest tacos. TGI Friday’s or Chili’s- both are really tasty and you can get deals. Great margaritas at Chili’s. San Antonio Texas Co. (SATCo)- great place for lunch or dinner, and really cheap. Mellow Mushroom- really good pizzas and fun trivia on Monday nights.
I like Mcdoogles because its fast and low key. The food is fantastic!
Kay Bobs. Great food and craft draft beers (2 for 1 on Saturday!)
21st Avenue S has a cute little cafe that’s about a 10 min walk south of campus. It’s called Provence Breads & Cafe. They sell pretty little desserts that are a nice treat for you or a friend.
Sportsman’s our Friday night happy-hour go to.
Hattie B’s – its some of the best hot chicken in Nashville and there;s nothing better than some hot chicken and a beer after a long week.
I love Kay-bobs. They have 2 for 1 on Tuesdays and Saturdays and the food is so good. It’s a great place for happy hour to meet up with friends.
Winners for drinks and karaoke on Friday and Saturday, Blue Bar for dancing, and Hattie B’s for guilty pleasure chicken on 19th.
Fido. It has incredible cuisine ranging from diner classics to truly gourmet specials, in addition to amazing coffee and a respectable beer selection- there’s definitely something for everyone.
