501 Donelson Pike, Nashville, TN
With a name like Bar-B-Cutie how could we not try this adorable franchise Bar-B-Q fast-food restaurant?With its menu on the wall and counter ordering, I wasn’t sure what to expect.Appetizers and samplers, 20 side options, plates or platters the choices were plentiful.You could also get stuffed potatoes, sandwiches and bulk platters to go.
I opted for the Hickory Smoked Bar-B-Q Platter, I found out after ordering is was 2oz larger than the plate size with larger side items.There was way too much food,would have gone with the plate size.A generous portion of 17 hours slow cooked pork, moist and smoky and no fat to be found. All of the sauces were found at our table (Hot, Mild or Sweet).I tried a bit of all of them, but I think it would have been more flavorful to have it pre-sauced and soaked in.
This adorable display was found on a railing inside!
As for sides I went with baked potato with all the fixing and the house Mac n Cheese.No way to screw up the potato but the Mac needed a bit more seasoning.Loved the Texas style toast that came with the plate.
The dinner plate was well priced for the portion, $8.99.One of my dinner mates tried the Bar-B-Q on Cornbread that was more like a cornbread pancake.Okay, but not great.
Super cute 58 year old franchise, quick and well priced, but not my vision of authentic B-B-Q (but expect from a franchise.)I would go back if they opened up in New England and the service was great!
