Absolute must-eat in Nashville! The line out the door may look long, but it's worth it. If you can, try to get a seat at the bar upstairs! The BBQ is great, but the sides might be the best part (hushpuppies and beans especially).

I'm tough on bbq and with Martin's, you have to take the good with the bad.

The Good:

- freshly brewed iced tea with free refills
- tasty smoked turkey
- homemade vinegar-based bbq sauce
- friendly employees
- tons of indoor and outdoor seating

The Bad:

- high prices ($50 for two for lunch)
- sides are an afterthought (green beans tasted exactly like the yucky one's at Dickey's and the cole slaw and potato salad tasted store bought)
- weird honey mustard on the fries
- no burnt ends

I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here but if you're in the area, it's an okay spot for a quick meal. Just stick to the meats and skip the sides.

Large BBQ offshoot of the famous Martins outside Nashville.
Tasty BBQ specializing in pulled pork.
Air conditioning downstairs. Upstairs is open air with games like shuffleboard and ping pong.
Several different spots to order good here.

Great food and not a skimpy portion in the house! Great selection on beer and a bartender that knows his stuff! Definitely a return trip for me
