Anyone know about this guy? 'Walking Tall' was the movie made about him. The Buford Stick by DBT was 'the other side of that story'. What do the locals have to say about him?

Hi



Just planning ahead (a lot!)



I'm going to be visiting Tennessee in October, and was wondering if anybody could recommend vegan eateries in Knoxville and maybe a couple of other towns?



Thanks!

I got to Johnson City,TN (washington county...Tri-cities area) about 2 weeks ago. Hoping there are other members here from this area who can show me where the good veggie restuarants are.

There's an old Nashville veg dine-out list in the Wayback archives. if your visit will include Nashville, please let me know.

Hey Joe, that's great, thanks



I'm not too sure yet where we will end up going - we'll be staying with a friend who has just moved to Knoxville, and any further travelling will depend on the cashflow situation in October!!

I am thinking about making a move to johnson city. Anyone that has any stories they can tell about it -- i would love hearing them.



Is it possible to get a train from there to Asheville, or is their railroad heritage a thing of the past?

Wake up Tennessee thread!!



I'm considering moving to Nashville. Can anyone provide some insight into how veg-friendly Nashville is?



Are there at least SOME veg*n restaurants?

Have people there ever heard the term "vegan" or do they think you're an alien?



Hope someone can help!

Nashville is fairly veg*n UNfriendly. On a scale of 1 to 10, where 10 would be London, England--Nashville would be about a 2.

There are maybe 2 or 3 out of some 600 restaurants in Nashville.

If you mean restaurants offering some sort of veg*n selections, then there are maybe three or four dozen of these. See the following list (which is several years old):

Thanks, Joe. I live in rural IL now and I refuse to move to another area like it, as far as cultural acceptance for the Veg*n lifestyle.

Wow, well I live in Nashville and I can vouch for the fact that it is certainly not "rural" as far as its acceptance of vegetarianism! At least 5 of my friends are veg*n, and none of them are opposed to it. I can find at least one dish at almost any restaurant I go to, and by "dish" i don't mean iceberg-lettuce-with-a-tomato-slice-on-top. Nashville is really growing these days and it's a really great place. I love it. As far as restaurants go, there's an all-vegetarian Indian place called Woodlands, as well as an all-vegetarian, kosher cafe called Grins. There are a lot of other restaurants with good veg options though, such as tin angel, fido, etc. I guess you're not considering moving here any more, but I just wanted to defend it a bit! It's my home!

that's pretty amazing for how popular Nashville is, it seems like a busy place the last time I went and that's kind of amazing because here in Knoxville, Downtown there's at least 4 or 5 vegetarian/vegan aimed restaurants. when I say 'aimed' I do mean that the menu is at least half veg if not more.

unless you're talking about a completely vegetarian restaurant..
