3. Burger Joint
Available on Grubhub and Uber Eats, the simply-named new burger joint from the owners of 51st Deli recently in the Nations, and people say the $8 burgers, chorizo fries, tots, and warm pimento queso are all worth trying. On the sweeter side — choose from a classic cast of milkshakes and floats

Available on DoorDash and Postmates, the Memphis-born slow-smoked meat merchant Central BBQ opened in late October — bringing ribs, pulled pork, brisket, turkey, and chicken to carnivores in Nashville.

offers a menu of sweet and savory Southern dishes — house-cured bacon, buttermilk biscuits and stacked-high morning sandwiches sharing tables (at home, currently) with syrup-slathered Belgian waffles.
