Grilled cheese sandwich and condiments from the Grilled Cheeserie near Olympus Hillwood in Murfreesboro, Tennessee



Every week, Guy Fieri takes Food Network viewers on a cross-country trip to some of America's classic greasy spoon restaurants. He's made several stops here in Tennessee and sampled an array of cuisines ranging from Cajun to Mexican. If you would like to visit the restaurants and food trucks featured on Diner, Drive-ins & Dives, then here are three near our Murfreesboro apartments that you won't want to miss:


Established in 2010, The Grilled Cheeserie serves gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches featuring seasonally inspired ingredients. Guy visited this food truck during season 18 when he was in search of home-style comfort foods. The Grilled Cheeserie draws large crowds and has been named the best food truck by the Nashville Scene eight years running. Specialty sandwiches include Buffalo South, Turkey di Parma, and B&B of Tennessee. 


A local favorite since 1982, Arnold's Country Kitchen is a mom and pop eatery where the food feels like your grandma's home cooking. The restaurant won the prestigious James Beard American Classics Award in 2009 and frequently gains recognition from Southern Living and other publications. Guy visited during season nine when he cooked up delicious meals with members of the Arnold family. The crisp fried green tomatoes and made-to-order cornbread are a favorite among locals and visitors alike. They're the perfect start to meals such as fried chicken, roast beef, or sugar-cured ham.


Originally from Lafayette, Louisiana, Darrell Breaux enjoys sharing Cajun cuisine with his adopted hometown. The chefs work in an open-air kitchen, and also have a smoker out back that can smoke up to 70 hams at once. Guy stopped by Bro's in season 10, and stated that "you really can't go wrong with any of the classics." Offerings include jambalaya, stuffed pork chops, and catfish po'boy sandwiches.

These represent just a few of the premier restaurants near our Murfreesboro, TN apartments. If you want something lighter and healthier, we're also close to popular area juice bars.
