Restaurant Openings and Re-openings

March is quickly approaching, and for Nashville diners this means two things. First the re-opening of Martin's BBQ and secondly the opening of the highly anticipated new burger place Burger-Up.

We have been waiting for the re-opening of Martin's BBQ for quite sometime, and it looks like Tuesday March 2nd will be the day. This new location will feature an expanded dining area, bar, drive-thru, and most importantly a whole hog pit. To my knowledge Martin's will be the only place in Middle Tennessee cooking whole hog, and trust me you wont want to miss out on that middlin meat. With an expanded kitchen and staff, look for Pat Martin to offer up some new specials. To stay up to date on the happenings at Martin's, follow him on Twitter - @martinsbbq.

For those omnivores closer to the city, Burger Up is coming to 12th South sometime in mid March. This is the brainchild of Frothy Monkey owner Miranda Whitcomb who looks to bring a local flair to the traditional burger. We don't know what exactly is in store for us burger lovers, but we do know that the meat will come from the Triple L Ranch in Franklin. Ummm... how's a Triple L Ranch triple burger with Benton's bacon sound? As soon as we have a chance to hit it up we will report back.

I had Martin's que only once when i was driving through TN... It was about a 50 mile out of my way swing, but MORE THAN WORTH IT. Glad he is having good fortune in a difficult business.
