Who knew a BBQ Joint could throw one of the best Fish Fry’s I have ever attended?!?!? Edley’s BBQ, with two locations in Nashville, decided to throw somewhat of a neighborhood Fish Fry at their East Nashville location to say thank you to the neighborhood and city for their support of the restaurant.

The evolution has yielded a pimento-cheese topped brisket sandwich smothered in both red and [...]
Edley’s Edley’s was created with the idea of combining the meats of a great barbecue joint with the vegetables of a good ol’ Southern meat-and-three.
