Charlie Bobs - an East(ish) Nashville Diner Experience

Okay, so let's get to know each other for just a second.  I grew up in a small town, with a population of approximately 4,000 —  moved on to go to college in a town of 25,000 (and I thought I was a big deal).  When I moved to Brentwood, TN in 2007, I thought I was living the urban lifestyle!  All that said, one should acknowledge, there is a good chance I know a good diner when I see one.

I had heard the buzz about Charlie Bob's over on Dickerson for quite some time but for some reason didn't think I was "brave" enough to try it.  Yes, I know.. Ridiculous, but, Dickerson was a bit out of my comfort zone.  Needless to say I got over it, and am glad I did:  Charlie Bob's changed my life!  It has officially taken the top spot as my favorite divey joint in town.  It is just authentic, small town diner vibe at its best.  Good, greasy food and super sweet tea to wash it all down with.  And for real ya'll, the prices are crazy cheap.

The Food: 

I had one egg, bacon, biscuits/gravy, hashbrowns and coffee for right around $6.  Yes, $6, the price of your Starbucks latte this morning.  The biscuits were so light and fluffy, if I ever had the chance to eat a cloud—  this is what I would imagine it tasting like. All joking aside, it was probably the best biscuit I've ever had in my life.  The rest of the meal was just as I expected, greasy southern breakfast goodness.  Looking forward to going back and trying some of the non-breakfast items.

You can check out the full menu, here.

The Service:

While I'm pretty sure the waitress didn't smile at us once, she was still timely, consistent, and I never had an empty cup of coffee.  Not too shabby.

If you are like most people I know in Nashville, you haven't made the venture out to Charlie Bob's, and you're missing out!  Get out and get you some quality southern diner fare today!
