Black-owned restaurants to visit in Nashville

Devon Williams

NASHVILLE, TN – Visitors who never travel outside of Nashville's downtown lose out on some of the city's most delicious culinary gems. High rent and a lack of money have forced many of the city's greatest Black-owned restaurants to relocate outside of the city center, and if you're not dining there, you're losing out on some of the city's best cuisine.

  • Big Al’s Deli

Big Al’s Deli is one of the very famous black-owned restaurants in Nashville. Not only that Big Al’s Deli is famous for the foods, but many reviewers on yelp expressed their adorations toward Big Al and his family. Alphonso Anderson, the Big Al himself, specializes in Southern comfort food. The deli is closed on Sunday, so you can visit the deli at 1828 4th Ave N Nashville from 6 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Saturday. Must try: Big Al’s Breakfast, Hot Chicken, and Jerk Chicken.

  • Riddim N Spice

Kamal Kalokoh and Rashean Conaway, Ouida Bradshaw's sons, started a famous food truck and catering company before building their own restaurant near Meharry Medical College, adding to the family heritage. With rising heat levels available in their seafood and chicken dishes, as well as “build-your-own” Island Bowls, they also inherited their mother's passion for spice. Served with freshly squeezed tropical juices. The resto opens from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. everyday except for Sunday when the resto is closed. Must try: Trini Fried Rice and Oxtails.

  • Sinema
