Arnold’s Country Kitchen — Nashville, TN

John — 13

Arnold’s Country Kitchen is one of the quickest places to eat at.  The restaurant is made to look like a school cafeteria.  But, the food is a lot bettter than school food.  The place is near a rough part of the town of Nashville. The resaturant is small, and you want to be on time when they open or you will be waiting outside for a long time to get your food.  The reasturant’s employees are nice and even carry the tray with the food you bought to a table to sit and eat.  They have a calender that shows all the specials they have for that day.  Today it was Friday and the meats were roast beef, catfish, and shrimp.  When you are picking up your tray they have the prices for what you want to buy.  The pick three sides and one meat was around $7.50; the lowest price was one side and one meat.  The restaurant has one small women’s restroom and one small men’s restroom.  On the wall are all the famous people who have eaten there.  On one wall all alone is the Food Network – Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives symbol.  The restaurant is kid friendly, and they even have a kids menu like the adults but cheaper and has less food on there plate.  The first section of the cafeteria style counter is where you get salads, deserts, cottage cheese, other cold foods. The second section is where you get your appetizers and meat. The last section is where you pick out your drinks ( lemonade or ice tea , sweet or unsweet) and where you pay.  In the restaurant you find all types of the society.  There are the men in suits, families, college students, and all sorts of people.

My favorite thing to eat there was the mac n cheese.  They use a lot of diffrent spices in the mac n cheese.  The mac n cheese is one of the things that they are known for making.  The other is the roast beef.  The roast beef is full of juice and really tender.  For the kids they even cut up the meat for them so that you don’t have to.  My second favorite thing to eat there was the green beans.  They were really spicy but held a lot of good flavers in them.  I couldn’t help myself and ate them really quickly.  My sister (who deosn’t eat much) gave me her plate, and I ate half of her food before we left the restaurant.

I would recommend eating there if you are in the area.  But, be sure to get there early and beat the crowd to eat.  When we got there at 11:1it was a perfect time, but they don’t serve breakfast so don’t go there o early.  I thought that it was a really fun place to ea,t but it was also really easy to eat there too.  So if you are looking for a good place to eat that is a reasonable price, then you go there and try it.

We walked in and had to wait just a minute to get our food.  It looked like a lunch cafeteria.  It was not very big, and it was crowded.  It was not very fancy because it was not a sit down restaurant.  The food was good.  The mashed potatoes were even spicy.  They were a good spicy.  I also had the roast beef and green beans.  I didn’t eat the green beans, but I bet they would have been spicy too.  I had too much on my plate, and I was too busy eating my roast beef.  It was really juicy and tender.  I also ate half of a roll.  It was both soft and hard.  Hard on the outside and soft on the inside.  I had sweet tea to drink.  Good sweet!  I would maybe eat there again.  The roast beef was good, and I like the tea.  But, it was crowded.  I would like to try the shrimp and macaroni and cheese.

Arnold’s is a good place to eat it has good food and all the food is homemade.  When you first walk in the place it is normally crowded and you mitght have to wait to get your food.  When you get to the counter where they serve you, they will ask if you want just meat, or meat and 2 sides, or meat and 3.  The meat can be roast beef and sometimes shrimp or catfish. The sides can be turnup greens, mac and cheese, green beans, mashed potatoes, fried green tomatoes, and scallopped corn.  To get your food you go through a cafeteria  line and you tell the servers what meat and sides you want.  Then they let you pick your drink; I recommend getting the sweet tea; it is really good and sweet. You might want someone to save a seat for you because it gets really crowded. The atmosphere is really cool because a lot of famous people have been there.  I had the shrimp, fried green tomatoes, and macaroni and cheese.  I tried my sister’s roast beef.  The roast beef was good, juicy, and had a lot of flavor.  The fried green tomatoes were not my favorite.  The green tomatoes were very sour.  The macaroni and cheese had a lot of cheese on it.  It was definitely homemade.  Next time I would get the roast beef.  I would also get the mashed potatoes and turnip greens.  I tried my mom’s and they tasted a lot like green beans – and I like green beans.
