Murfreesboro TN is home to Blue Raider football and Middle Tennessee State University. It is a college town, a place for families and a beautiful representation of Tennessee. I feel privileged to have called it home previously for about five years. Murfreesboro is a fun city to explore, and as you do, I want to tell you about three restaurants you might want to schedule for pit stops.
In fact, the first thing you might want to do is find some food that is cooked in a pit, a barbecue pit. Slick Pig BBQ is in the downtown area on East Main Street, and this place serves up some of the most delicious southern barbecue. Aside from the smoked wings, ribs and pulled pork, Slick Pig BBQ also serves up menu items like stew, catfish and coconut cake. By the way, the wings are said to be amazing.
Opah Greek Grill on James Luscinski Drive would make for a great stop, too. Gyros, tabouli, baklava and more are on the menu. You can expect huge portions according to reviews, and I would expect that means those gyros are large and stuffed with lamb. It is a great spot to stop and enjoy Mediterranean cuisine while you are in Murfreesboro TN.
Jeff’s Family Restaurant should also give you a good idea about the city of Murfreesboro TN. You are talking about down home country cooking in the heart of Tennessee. Order up some fried chicken, cornbread, chess pie and more. This cafeteria style restaurant oozes the spirit of rustic Murfreesboro TN, and you will certainly enjoy it no doubt.
That’s three great stops for you to make in Murfreesboro for some delicious meals. Murfreesboro is a rustic Tennessee city, but it also has that big city flare, being so close to Nashville. There are definitely plenty of fun things to do and more great restaurants there, too, for you to enjoy during your visit.
