In 1974, a little country grocery store was the site of a weekly jam session. Musicians would come from miles around to "pick a little" on the guitar and sing favorite tunes. The Jam Session evolved into what is now a favorite family-style restaurant. Tresa Street and her band performs on Friday nights and Bob Payne and his band perform on Saturday nights. You can be the first to listen to upcoming new talent on Tuesday nights since the microphone is open to amateurs. No alcohol served and smoking is prohibited, but bring your appetite. The pork barbecue and chicken are some of the best around. Long Hollow Jamboree & Restaurant is only 11 miles north of Nashville.
The Pizza Machine is a one-of-a-kind experience in the greater Nashville area. Each pizza is hand tossed and made to order using a delicious family recipe for both the crust and the sauce. Guests at this downtown Gallatin hot spot can enjoy a wide variety of standard toppings as well as some more unusual options including shrimp, artichokes and bacon. Customers may also enjoy a signature specialty pizza such as the popular Taco Pizza or the Meaty Mess. Large groups should definitely try the spectacular, super-sized 40-inch (one-meter) pizza. Transported to the table via crane, it is an amazing sight and a delicious option for any crowd. -Lynn-nore Chittom
Campione's Taste of Chicago offers customers in Nashville the treat of an authentic Chicago beef stand. The Chicago-style beef samwiches - spelled just the way they say it in Chi-caw-go - are the perfect combination of thinly sliced lean roast beef, Italian spices, peppers and Italian bread. The menu also includes a daily selection of pasta offerings by Mama Campione herself. In addition to samwiches and pasta, Campione's is also a great place to pick up a Chicago style hot dog or Wrigley Field chili dog. This local spot is owned by native Chicagoists and their authentic menu does a pretty decent job of bringing the flavors of Windy City home to Music City. -Lynn-nore Chittom

Sam's All American Sports Bar has been voted "Best Sports Bar" in Nashville seven times by the Nashville Scene Magazine, and they know what they're talking about. With two locations, one in Hillsboro Village and one in Hendersonville, all of Nashville has an opportunity to enjoy a game at Sam's. Unlike many chain restaurants and bars, Sam's puts just as much emphasis on their food as they do on the big game. The pizzas are handcrafted and creative and the burgers are juicy and delicious, but nobody really goes to Sam's just for the food, as there are plenty of other options in the area. Check out their website for Happy Hour specials and events. You'll be sure to have a great time at Sam's. -Lynn-nore Chittom
