Delicious cooking, charming scenery, and friendly service are all wrapped up in this small-town setting. Nolensville is a great place to find southern comfort food and genuine southern hospitality.

The town of Nolensville has been growing over the last several years. It’s gained quite a few shopping plazas and restaurant options. Of course, Nolensville has some of the well-known fast-food restaurants for a quick bite to eat in a familiar spot. But the locals know where to go to find some unique favorites. Our team’s familiarity with Nolensville has given us the chance to try out a few of those amazing locations. So, we’ve compiled this list of our favorite places to visit for eats, drinks, and treats in Nolensville, Tennessee.


Mama's Java

Mama’s Java is a locally-owned and operated small business and a quaint Nolensville gem. Their interior decor fits the Nolensville vibe well, pairing an old country-store-like setting with a modern menu. It’s the perfect place to grab a coffee on the run or sit down to enjoy a delicious meal with a friend. Mama’s Java air roasts their own delicious coffee beans, making their coffee unique. They also offer specialty drinks and fun, tasty food items.


Birdie’s Breakfast & Lunch Shop


We highly recommend Birdie’s Breakfast & Lunch Shop to satisfy morning and early afternoon meal cravings. Their vibrant atmosphere compliments their exciting menu offerings. They have meals like Hipster Toast and Custard-Stuffed French Toast (yum!). And no matter what, be sure to save room for a sweet treat after the meal! This venue teamed up with the Bearded Baker for amazing sweets!


Brothers’ Burger Joint


Brothers’ Burger Joint is a fantastic spot to grab a burger! Their Po Boy and bang bang chicken are pretty amazing, and the Jambalaya is our agent Heather’s favorite! (Hungry yet?!) Brothers’ also offers local beers and a full bar, so it’s a great place to grab a drink and watch the game. But on a nice day, we recommend sitting out on the patio to enjoy your meal within the Nolensville atmosphere. 


Outlanders Southern Chicken


Outlanders Southern Chicken is a one-of-kind, lively restaurant serving deliciously large portions. Their fried mac ‘n cheese balls and their chicken tenders are quite a hit! Not only is their food delicious, but their staff and customer service are top-notch. This venue is a fun place to host a casual hangout or enjoy a quick lunch break. 


Martin’s Bar-B-Que


Tennessee residents need to know just where to find a good barbecue restaurant. In Nolensville, Martin’s Bar-B-Que is our go-to pick! While Martin’s now offers several locations in Tennessee, the Nolensville location was their very first restaurant. This tasty restaurant offers whole-hog barbecue, and everything is made fresh daily. This stop is a must for Nolensville barbecue lovers!
