Pat Martin expands his meaty empire to Midtown on Tuesday, March 26, opening Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint at 2400 Elliston Place.
No freezers or microwaves allowed here — everything is made fresh daily — with the intent of running out. The ever popular whole hog barbecue sandwich topped with slaw, a Southern “paddy” melt dolloped with pimento cheese, and Mississippi catfish fingers are all on the menu.
Southern sides like cornbread hoecakes and macaroni and cheese are made from Martin’s family recipes, as are Mrs. Kitty’s coconut cake and Martha Ann’s fudge pie.
To sip on, the Cumberland grog is made with allspice and Cheerwine, and the Tennessee sour combines a classic whiskey sour with red wine. Martin himself curated the beer and wine lists.
The new location features a large patio plus a full outdoor bar providing views of two block pits where they’ll smoke fresh hogs daily. There are also two private dining spaces. Kitschy Nashville-themed décor, photos from Martin’s youth, and other nostalgic memorabilia line the walls.
