NASHVILLE, TN – German culture in a southern setting is the backdrop for the Nashville Oktoberfest, returning to historic Germantown Oct. 7, 8 & 9, where festival goers eat, drink and celebrate their German heritage (or lack of it). A Tennessee tradition since 1980, the Oktoberfest is Nashville’s oldest festival and the Largest Fall Festival in the South!

“This year we’re incorporating more activities like the Oktoberfest Beer Slide, which will be Nashville’s only, and a Bratwurst Eating Contest – plus more than 35 restaurant & food vendors on site and more than 110 craft booths,” states Michael King, event producer and the owner of Monell’s Restaurants in Nashville. “Of course one of the main staples at Oktoberfest is the beer, and this year we are celebrating the 500th anniversary of Paulaner Brewery. Every Draft Beer Station has 3 kinds of Paulaner beer imported from Germany – plus a special Oktoberfest brew from Munich. This year we’ve got nine Draft Beer Stations, plus Beer Tasting Gardens featuring 10 breweries and 18 different beers!” adds King.

The Nashville Oktoberfest is spread out over nine blocks in the historic neighborhood of Germantown just outside of downtown. The event caters to adults and kids of all ages. Two separate areas will be dedicated to children’s activities and feature Kids Zones, sponsored by Nashville Parent Magazine.

Another big draw is the free live music. There are three separate music stages at the event – each featuring German music and famous Oktoberfest Oompah bands.

Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint

Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint
1123 3rd Avenue North, Nashville, TN 37208


The What’s Cookin’ Germantown Crew had heard so much about Jack Brown’s we just had to try it for lunch. Well, we got a surprise when I ordered a cheese burger with onion and pickle. “We can’t do that today” the waiter replied. What? Out of all our vast wisdom we had failed to read the menu. Should we stay or should we go? We decided to stay and find out what the deal was that a burger joint didn’t sell the gold standard of the hamburger world.

Here’s the deal:

Each day they have a special. We were there on Thursday so it was the  Nacho Libre.
The Nacho What? – Burger topped with diced black olives and jalapeños, Pepper jack cheese, green onions mixed in sour cream, re-fried beans and house made tortilla chips.

We said “OK give us one”

They don’t just have one burger available each day they have more.Take a look: Menu

While we were waiting we took a look around the place.








Looks good , smells better and BOOM the taste was out of this world. No wonder the place was filling up. They get so busy they have valet parking. For a burger Joint? YES !!

Oh look, they have a patio and Corn Hole:

You can walk from Germantown a quick Uber or Lift from downtown Nashville.
Come on — you will want a beer or two. Enjoy yourself.

We give Jack Brown’s a Five Finger lick rating.




Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint is the childhood dream of two best friends, Aaron Ludwig and Mike Sabin. They had always talked about opening their own bar back in the day while collecting beer cans and skateboarding. Aaron had spent 15 years in the business world operating a ski and snowboard shop in Harrisonburg. Mike spent 20 years in South Beach Miami in the restaurant business. After one crappy day at work in 2008, Aaron called Mike to propose a “what if” scenario and the rest as the saying goes, is history. Aaron was into craft beer and Mike was a chef of 4 restaurants; a beer and burger joint was born.

The menu is purposely simple. Jack Brown’s is a bar, that sells a great burger. It is not a restaurant trying to please all tastes. They focus on: do one thing and do it right. There is an amazing menu of craft beer ranging from the local darlings to rare beers from around the world.

They designed the bar that they like hanging out in. They grew up as drinking buddies so it wasn’t too difficult a task. Although there might not be a rhyme or reason to the décor, it sure gives you something to talk about.

The staff is a key part of Jack Brown’s. They have been trained to guide customers through the world of beer and to make sure you have a good time.

Mike and Aaron hope you enjoy the experience of your beer and your burger and hope you have a blast when you’re here. Good food, good beer and good times.

Hattie B’s Hot Chicken
Total Time: 8 hr 45 min
Prep: 15 min
Inactive: 8 hr
Cook: 30 min
Yield:4 servings
For the dry brine:
1 whole chicken (about 3 pounds), washed, patted dry and cut into quarters
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
For the dip:
1 cup whole milk
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon Louisiana-style hot sauce
For the dredge:
2 cups all-purpose flour
Sea salt
Vegetable oil, for frying
For the spicy coating:
1/2 cup lard, melted and heated (or hot frying oil)
3 tablespoons cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Pickle slices, for serving
Dry-brine the chicken: In a bowl, toss the chicken pieces with 1 tablespoon kosher salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons black pepper; cover and refrigerate overnight or up to 24 hours.
Make the dip and dredge: In a bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs and hot sauce. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and 2 teaspoons sea salt.
Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, then dip in the milk mixture, then in the flour mixture again, shaking off the excess after each step.
Heat the vegetable oil in a deep-fryer to 325 degrees F. Set a wire rack on top of a rimmed baking sheet and set aside. Working in batches, lower the chicken into the fryer and fry until crisp, 15 to 17 minutes for breast quarters and 18 to 20 minutes for leg quarters. Remove the chicken and let it drain on the rack.
Make the spicy coating: Carefully ladle the lard or frying oil into a medium heatproof bowl and whisk in the cayenne pepper, brown sugar, 3/4 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon black pepper, the paprika and garlic powder. Baste the spice mixture over the hot fried chicken and serve immediately; garnish with pickles.

Nashville -King of Pops Opens at Farmer’s Market

Nashville -King of Pops Opens at Farmer’s Market
April 15, 2016 – 900 Rosa L Parks Blvd, Nashville

King of Pops Cart Nashville TN

If you’ve heard a story about our beginnings, it was more than likely a tale of one person overcoming a corporate layoff or of a lawyer eschewing the courtroom for the kitchen. While both of these things happened, neither is the whole story…

King of Pops was conceived overlooking the beach in Central America many years ago. Three adventurous brothers, born of a fruit-smoothie-loving mother, were taking a break from a day of exploration to talk about life and love, but mainly paletas- the Latin American ice pops they had fallen in love with during their travels.

That trip would, as trips tend to do, eventually come to an end, but these three gringos never stopped dreaming of paletas. It became an obsession to bring these delicious fresh-fruit creations back home with them to share with the good people of Atlanta.

Eventually, the youngest brother, Steven, was a victim of massive layoffs at his employer, AIG. There were no more excuses not to follow his dreams and King of Pops was born. No longer laboring inside a cramped cubicle, Steven was now laboring inside his own cramped kitchen. With the help of his brother Nick (the lawyer), their family, and a handful of friends, he began to experiment with a variety of techniques and recipes in an effort to recapture the essence of those first pops he had enjoyed years ago.

King of Pops Nashville TN Farmers Market

After countless hours of trial and error, King of Pops opened its first cart, much like the ones that had inspired the brothers years before. The original Poncey-Highland location was a quick success and soon carts could be seen popping up (pun intended) at local farmers markets and festivals.

Eventually, all-night pop making sessions weren’t enough, and it was time for Nick to come on board full time. He decided to leave his stable job as a lawyer to work on what he and his little brother had dreamt together.

Today our team is growing and we have our own kitchen (some of us even have business cards now!), and we have enlisted close friends to spread our vision to nearby cities. Our goal, however, remains the same: to provide an ecologically responsible, fresh, all-natural frozen treat in a fun neighborhood environment.

We still toil late into the night in the kitchen and you can often find Steven slinging pops at that original Poncey-Highland location or (if you get up early enough) you can see Nick picking through fresh fruit at the farmers market.

We love making pops. We hope you love eating them.

Sun-Thur 11:00 – 9:30 – Fri & Sat 11:00 – 10:30
Little Donkey was born out of our love of the vibrant flavors and brilliant combinations that traditional Mexican cooks have created for centuries.  The recipes that we have researched and tasted inspired us and gave us a glimpse into the soul of regional cooking.  We started to understand and see that this is family food, comfort food, party food and soul food.  We saw direct relationships to the way traditional Southern cooks celebrate, comfort and nourish with our own regional cooking and we wanted to bring it to Germantown in Nashville.
