Swett's

615-329-4418  •  $
ADDRESS: 2725 Clifton Ave , Nashville, TN 37209
CUISINE: Fried Chicken, Southern, Home-style, Soul Food, Barbecue, Ribs
FEATURES: Handicap Access, Kid Friendly, Smoke Free, Vegetarian Friendly
DESCRIPTION
North Nashville meat-and-three mainstay Swett's has been owned and operated by members of the Swett family since 1954, and there has been absolutely no reason to fool with time-tested recipes. Service is cafeteria-style, and lunch in particular draws perhaps Nashville's most diverse crowd of city officials, business leaders, blue-collar workers, and students and staffers from nearby Tennessee State University, Fisk University and Meharry Medical College. Soul food and Southern cooking staples such as fried chicken (along with a hot variety), barbecued pork ribs and meat loaf are among the best in town. Ditto for the various pies and cobblers for dessert. And the addition of a barbecue pit in the winter of 2012 has added smoked barbecue pork, beef and pork ribs, beef brisket, pork chops and wings to the mix. All the more reason to make Swett's a must-stop on any Nashville culinary trip.
ADDITIONAL DETAILS
No alcohol available. Serving lunch and dinner 11 am–8 pm daily.
Pork shoulder sandwich special
2 for $4.99 or 1 for $2.99
