After a number of delays, it appears that the wait for the opening of pitmaster Pat Martin's long anticipated, mega-sized Martin's Bar-B-Que Joint in SoBro is indeed almost over. Seriously this time.
A message was posted earlier today to the restaurant's Facebook page announcing the joyful news: "We completed our final inspection Friday afternoon - which means we'll be swinging the doors open to the new Martins in Downtown Nashville this coming Thursday August 4th!"
Now with a firm opening date in hand, you can start planning your first trip to what will most undoubtedly be the epicenter for Nashville barbecue. And be sure to check back this week for more updates and intel.
