For some of the best country ham and fried chicken in Tennessee, drive 40 miles west of Nashville to Lyles--to the very proper Beacon Light Tea Room. Your table will be set with a scripture breadbox; the décor is all about lava lights and images of Jesus. You will not want to miss the hash brown casserole. At Beacon Light Tea Room, the chicken is pan fried . . . and perfect. Half a chicken, so tasty crisp on the outside, moist and flavorful inside. The country ham is generous and delectable. Savor the vegetables and sides: green beans with bits of ham in them, buttered corn, a cup of gravy and a basket of biscuits. Sunday dinner in the south. For dessert: refrigerator pie--Sweetened cream cheese, condensed milk and layers of pecan and coconut. Tuesday-Friday 4-10 pm Saturday & Sunday 9 am-10 pm
