Tennessee is a food lover’s fantasy. Every ingredient has a story and an edible legacy. From meat-and-three traditions to white tablecloth experiences, our stories are in the kitchen. We celebrate farmers and chefs as pipelines to our legendary foodways.

Foodie destinations in the Volunteer State vary as much in type and atmosphere as the cuisine itself. The common denominator? Fresh local ingredients. Our chefs commune with farm-to-fork passions in their own gardens, at farmers markets and pick-your-own-produce places. We’re pleasing both locals and visitors with our booming food truck culture.

“There’s no place like home” speaks to our comfort food from local favorites to satisfying soul food. Famous Tennessee dishes include barbecue, country ham and flaky biscuits. Go down-home with Tennessee classics such as famous Benton’s Bacon and pipin’ hot cornbread. Get your day going with an eye-opening breakfast. Work up an appetite for our raved-about diner food. Pair tunes with your food while relishing a relaxing casual family dinner. Our winning combinations of music and food will feed your soul.

Lynchburg

Historic Lynchburg means the legendary Jack Daniel and his famous Old No. 7 whiskey. The tall tales, the tastings, the barbecue and the distillery are just the beginning, however. Stop for lunch at Miss Mary Bobo’s Boarding House & Restaurant, synonymous with Southern hospitality since 1908, when Jack himself ate there. Tour the downtown, stop in Tim’s Flies & Lies, visit the Old Jail, and take home a whiskey-flavored treat from Lynchburg Cake and Candy.
