If your mother was a horrible cook and you want to be reminded of gross overcooked canned food, bland meats, and a general working class atmosphere then enjoy. However if you like fresh veg and perfectly cooked meat this greasy spoon dive isn't for you. I have been there 4 times now and ordered different items every time and it is all peasant food. I enjoyed eating "home cooking" at several places but this place isnt cooking they are microwaving and reheating nasty premade bland, did I mention bland and yet oversalted food I guess there is skill in doing that gross...ok I feel better after ranting it all out. Bland ok that was the last one I swear.

What the what!! Where did this jewel come from? As seen on TV's Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives this is a must do for lunch in Nashville. All walks of life at Arnold's, from the business professional to the traveling family this spot it quick, cheap, and delectable! Down home and truly southern cuisine served cafeteria style and at a rapid pace. If your looking to impress a client with exceptional surroundings, this isn't the place for you. But, if you want to blow their mind with southern flair and a unique spot, this is it. The joint is only open during lunch and the food shows why. Deep spicy flavors throughout, rich meats smoked slowly and carved fresh to order, with delectable desserts. Don't forget your cornbread muffin to cap off the meal. Come early and expect a little wait, but this spot is well worth it. This is a 5 of 5 for me ☆☆☆☆☆. Oh yeah...bring cash for quick service. About $10 per person.

Great food everyday. Only open till 2:30pm m-f though so you have to plan your trip. Don't worry about the long line - it's a meat and three served cafeteria style so it goes pretty quick.

Cheap home cooking at it's best. The portions were generous and the roast beef with collard greens were out of this world. You feel very cozy like you've grown up eating here. The owner and staff are wonderful and adds to the atmostsphere. Do get here early, we got in right at 10:30, by 11 it was out the door! Must stop if you are in Nashville.

Maybe I need to give it another shot, because I don't exactly see why this place is so beloved. Not bad for a meat + 3, just not stellar. If the food wasn't too salty, it was too sweet.

Great roast beef. Mac and cheese and bananna pudding. I highly recommend the roast beef.

Awesome.. Fried green tomatoes were the bomb.. Only small issue that seems to work itself out is the seating.. But hey like I said it worked out..
