Stu and I had date night about a week ago. A true date night - sans Remy! The big kids were at church for Parents' Night Out. And we lucked out because Uncle Scotty, Aunt Allison and cousin Shayli wanted to spend some QT with Rem. Woo hoo!
I've had my eye on this BBQ joint in the Gulch for a while now.
It did not disappoint. Actually, I think it's my favorite BBQ spot so far.
It was fairly busy when we arrived. Peg Leg Porker is similar to Martin's... you wait in line to place your order. Then you go sit. The line in was out the door. While I was in the rest room, Stu snagged two spots at the bar in the back. You are allowed to sit and order there (if you can find seats).
I ordered a pulled pork sandwich with slaw and mac. And I asked for the HOT BBQ sauce. I was in BBQ heaven. The pork was so tender. I could taste the smoke. The mac was super cheesy and the cole slaw was juicy and refreshing.
Stu ordered ribs, beans and fries. The ribs have a dry rub on them. He opted for no sauce. His ribs were quite yummy (I may have stolen a nibble). The beans were amazing... they have a smokey flavor.
So, would I recommend this place? Enthusiastically YES. This is a must-do for out-of-towners.
Thanks Stu for taking me out on the town. And thank you to the literal village who took care of the three little Stus.
Where to next?
So far it seems all we do in Nashville is eat... Well, the southern cookin' is dang good.
Uncle Bud's, located in Donelson, is the best place for fried anything. Stu gets the fried catfish. Reagan ordered fried chicken. Riley ordered grilled chicken (egg allergy). And I asked for the fried gator.
The sides are delivered family-style shortly after you sit down. The beans and hush puppies are amazing!
Yes Dad, we will take you here when you come visit. =)
I've never been a huge fan of the fair.
My parents have taken Reagan and Riley once or twice to the South Florida Fair when they were really little. Neither remembers any of it.
Fast forward to 2019. Since living in Nashville, we have heard from several people that the Wilson County Fair is a great one. One of the best in the entire state. So when my cousin asked if we would be interested in meeting them there one afternoon, we said YES.
