DETAILS
Absolutely Nashville's top chocolate shakes, cherry sodas, banana splits and other classic concoctions are the stars of the show at the appropriately named Elliston Place Soda Shop. One of Nashville's oldest restaurants - in operation at the same Midtown site since 1939 - the neon- and linoleum-lined archetype appears untouched since the 1950s, all the way down to the cracked red vinyl seats and the table-side jukeboxes that don't work. Better burgers and sandwiches can be had elsewhere, but the daily meat-and-three plates are solid, particularly the fried chicken. A timeless breakfast menu features the no-frills foursome of bacon and eggs, grits and toast. No alcohol available. Serving breakfast and lunch Mon-Sat. Closed Sun. "For dessert, if you can resist a banana split, there is silk-smooth chess pie or a frosty wedge of the simple and nearly breathtaking Dixie classic, lemon icebox pie."
