Arnold's white cinder-block building is almost an eyesore from the outside, with a farm-fence painted on the walls, but the diners don't seem to mind. A substantial crowd gathers here for breakfast and lunch. You might have to wait in line awhile, but the wait is worth it. Beef or pork is standard fare, and your choice is served with fresh vegetables, hot cornbread, iced tea, and decadent cream filled pies.
I Dream of Weenie might actually be the most creative and unusual restaurant stand in all of Nashville. This free-standing hot dog shack is actually a renovated vintage VW bus with a small wooden deck attached. I Dream of Weenie relishes (condiment-pun intended) its unusual appearance and even offers T-shirts that share the company name. The hotdogs themselves are very tasty and are offered with a variety of different toppings and chips. The service and prices are both excellent, but the real treat is the experience of the place.
Forget about fast food chicken sandwiches that claim to be spicy, this is the real thing. Four levels of heat are available—mild, which is frightfully spicy in its own right; medium, which will make you grimace in painful bliss; hot, which is seriously life threatening; extra hot—don't try this unless you have medical personnel nearby. Sandwiches are served with pickle spears and beans or slaw. Vending machines provide carbonated refreshment.
