Best Budget Meal for the Bachelor: Brown’s Diner
Located in a modest double-wide trailer with a building addition at the rear, Brown’s has been at the corner of 21st Avenue South and Blair for eons. Nashville newcomers who don’t know any better probably think it’s the temporary on-site shack for a construction company. In short, it’s the perfect place for a slouchy single guy: The bar is dingy, low-ceilinged, and refreshingly unpretentious, with Chicago Cubs stickers plastered to the wall. And for a little more than $6, a callow young man can grab a classic, greasy-grilled cheeseburger, a plate of fries (extra-crispy), and a Bud draft. That’s hardly more than you’d spend at McDonald’s, and you get alcohol to boot! They don’t take credit cards, but they will take your personal check. What’s more, one of the bartenders looks like Waylon Jennings. Come to think of it, maybe he is Waylon Jennings.
