Bailey and Cato - Nashville

The interior of Bailey and Cato in East Nashville isn't meant to impress, which is just as well because their food is impressive enough. Plenty of people have good things to say about B&C, but probably no one can put it better than Ashville food writer Jonathan Ammons: “I got food poisoning the first time I ate there, but went back a week later because it was just that damn good.”

What to Order: Go on a Saturday for BBQ pork shoulder, some hot water cornbread, and peach cobbler for dessert.
