Come Travel Tennessee with Tennessee Back Road Restaurant Recipes Cookbook

Discover the Volunteer State’s most cherished food stops with Anita Musgrove’s Tennessee Back Road Restaurant Recipes Cookbook. The third volume in the State Back Road Restaurant Recipes Series, this Tennessee cookbook maps out the best restaurants in Tennessee and includes their best restaurant recipes. Additionally, you and your family will enjoy Tennessee’s greatest, tried-and-true dishes in the comfort of your own kitchen. A Tennessee food trip takes through the Western, Central, and Eastern regions, where you’ll encounter not just places to eat in Tennessee but also unique cuisine and exciting attractions.

Oldies Music, BBQ and a Parisian Pretender

Drive through the Western region for a lunch stop at Kokomo’s 50s Diner. This quaint restaurant serves up 1950s-style fare in a blast-from-the-past atmosphere. Chow down on the Elvis Sandwich while listening to oldies music and sipping on a malt. You might also make a stop at Tom’s Barbecue and Deli for delicious, Memphis-style barbecue. The BBQ Bologna Sandwich, made with Tom’s famous rub and sauce, will have even the most pretentious barbecue snobs rejoicing. Don’t leave the Western region without a visit to the Eiffel Tower in Paris—Paris, Tennessee that is. See the 60-foot-tall, 1:20-scale replica of the original 1,063-foot-tall monument for which Paris, France is famous. Originally built from wood by engineering students at Christian Brothers University, the replica has since been reconstructed in steel. It was then moved to Eiffel Tower Park where it remains available for viewing today.

Explore the Central Region’s Best Down Home Cooking Restaurants

Leaving the Western region, you pass into the Central region. Snacks are the best part of any road trip, so a pit stop at Ralph’s Donut Shop in Cookeville is just perfect. Open since 1962, this family-owned confectionary turns out nearly 200 dozen doughnuts daily. Stop by for a sweet treat, and then make your way to Shelbyville for lunch at Mike’s All American Diner. This country restaurant serves up Southern, home-style cooking at its best using recipes handed down through generations. Enjoy a hearty helping of Pot Pie as you appreciate the decorations, which celebrate veterans and those who currently serve. When you’ve had your fill, pop over to Nashville Shores Lakeside Resort, a 385-acre waterpark at Percy Priest Lake in Nashville. Dive into the wave pool or enjoy a relaxing float on the lazy river. The RV campground and cabins are perfect for a camping trip.

Drive-Ins & Divine Dining

Finally, end your tour with a trip through the Eastern region. Cruise through Carl’s Drive In, a staple in Loudon since April 1960. Order the famous Hot Fudge Cake specially made with Dottie’s Chocolate Cake recipe. Try the famous Dip Dogs, corn dogs made with Carl’s original recipe. For dinner, dine at The Plaid Apron, a small café serving house-made breads, fresh pastries, and coffee drinks. Settle down to a bowl of the Winter Stew with a nice, thick slice of their fresh-baked bread for a truly heartwarming dining experience. Round out the day with a stop at the Tennessee Aquarium in Chattanooga. See animals not found in America, like Gentoo penguins, ring-tailed lemurs, and sandbar sharks. Watch the latest nature documentaries in the Aquarium’s IMAX 3D theater, like Amazon Adventure 3D—a biopic-style retelling of explorer Henry Bates’ harrowing 11-year journey through the Amazon rainforest of 1850s South America.
