Where to Grab Lunch Right Now in Nashville

Nashville is well-known for being home to some of the country’s best music. It’s also rich in history, culture, and world-class food options. So naturally, it has become a popular destination for travelers.

And while you could spend days on end visiting different halls of fame and museums, at some point you will get hungry. Really hungry. So let’s take a look at one of the best places you can eat that will make you want to write home about it.

Von Elrod’s is open for lunch Tuesday -Thursday at 11am, and on Fridays enjoy brunch and live bluegrass music starting at 10am!

Best Lunch Grub in Town

Beer is everything! It’s refreshing, it tastes good, and it makes you feel happy. So of course you want to visit our open air beer garden and covered patio to have several of the 36 amazing brews we have on tap. But what’s a good pilsner or lager without having good lunch food to go along with it?

Our menu includes beer garden and American classics, such as:

  • Wood grilled cheeseburgers
  • Bratwurst sausages
  • Spicy chicken sausages
  • Hot chicken Schnitzel sandwich
  • Brisket grilled cheese
  • Louis spare ribs
  • Chicago-style hot dogs
  • Southern BBQ smoked meats

Tried and True Sides

Honestly, we don’t even know why they’re called sides, when they’re good enough to be the center of attention for lunch or any meal really!

  • Mac n cheese
  • Sweet potato fries
  • Bavarian fries
  • Loaded potato salad
  • Crispy brussels
  • Superfood slaw

And because we want you to have the entire German beer hall experience, you also have several pretzel options, such as classic Bavarian, jalapeño cheddar, and pizza pretzel. Yes, pizza, because this is still the USA.

Pick your dipping sauce that will bring you most joy: warm beer cheese, bearwalker brown mustard, buttermilk dill, or marinara.

Vegetarian Lunch Options

No list of best lunch options would be complete without a shout out for our vegetarian readers. We see you. So before you think you have to bring a protein bar to tide you over while out to lunch with friends, know that you can order any of the following:

  • Our pretzels, obviously. You know you were going to have one anyway.
  • Housegrilled veggie burger. Yep! You can actually have a full meal here!
  • Avocado crunch salad
  • Panchos (crispy potatoes with smoky jalapeño queso and other good stuff)
  • Smoked sweet corn

Weekend Brunch Shenanigans

If you slept in ‘cause it’s the weekend, you can still come on over to start your day with a happy time and a full belly. On Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays enjoy live bluegrass music from 10:00 AM until 2:00 PM, and take your pick of:

  • Pretzel monkey bread with cream cheese icing. ‘Cause who would want to live their lives without that?
  • Breakfast burritos, because even though it’s a biergarten, Mexican food makes everything better.
  • Malted blueberry pancakes, ‘cause it’s the weekend, and you have time for a big, leisurely breakfast.
  • Biscuits & gravy, ‘cause this is the South and we own it.

And since it’s brunch, we obviously have Big Ass Mimosas. We also offer them with Rosé for something a little different!

We have a lot of other delicious options as well! One thing’s for sure, though: No matter what you choose, you’ll be happy you came to eat with us!
