The familiar bright red Real Deal barbecue wagon has been a Clarksville Highway fixture for years and now it's gone. Don't fret, it's actually good news. They've just moved across the parking lot into a building and that means air conditioning while you wait for your barbecue. A few tables and chairs make for a nice little dining room. It's the space formerly occupied by Ultimate Wings. Swing by and take a look it's located at Clarksville and Hamilton.
There's more barbecue popping up on that stretch. Just north of the Bordeaux Library Rocs Barbecue will be opening soon.
Join us on this quest for the best ethnic, neighborhood and specialty restaurants in Nashville and Tennessee. We look for unassuming mom and pop joints where the food and the people are the main attractions. We give you two perspectives: Eric is the Meat Eater and Katie is the Veggie Eater, a Pesco-lacto-ovo vegetarian (which means she eats eggs, cheese and occasionally fish, but never meat). We base reviews on two anonymous visits and always pay our own way. We keep old reviews up so that readers can scout out restaurants. However, we stress that a review is a moment in time and the restaurant could have become better or worse or even changed management since we last reviewed. If you see a review that you think is off the mark, or no longer valid, please let us know and we will consider a revisit for an update.
