Elliston Place Soda Shop
2111 Elliston Place Nashville 37203. 615-327-1090.
Is "Southern" considered ethnic food? If you aren't from the south, it may seem, well, distinctly different. But even if you don't want the fried chicken platter (available on Tuesdays and Saturdays), you'll want to try the chocolate milk shakes at Elliston Place. They're the best in town, and perhaps the best in the state. One of Nashville's meat-and-threes. Price: low to moderate.
