It is not only the delicious, plentiful, authentic and indigenous food, it is the charm of the staff and the building. Do not miss this stop on your Nashville tour.

We went for Saturday brunch and didn't quite know what to expect but it could not have been better. We had never heard of meat and three but after some research decided on Monell's. They seat you family style around a large table with other groups. They bring the food and tell you there is one rule, pass to the left. You don't order from a menu but they just keep bringing food. Eggs, pancakes, sausage, bacon, ham, cinnamon rolls, fried chicken, potatoes, and cheese grits. I would highly recommend it.

Our large group appreciated the "boarding house table" concept because we were all able to eat together. We ate there on a Saturday night and it wasn't very crowded, with a short wait for a table. There's no menu---you either eat what they bring or you don't. That night we had BBQ, meatloaf, fish, and chicken, several different vegetables, cornbread, biscuits, and pudding for dessert. I'm not usually a picky eater but this food---while not bad---was not up to the standards of Southern cooking that I am used to. The chicken was the best, but if you aren't one of the first people to get the bowl passed to you, the only pieces left are the ones that have little meat on them! The server brings out bowls of each dish and just randomly sets them on the table, so you never know if you will be the first to get anything from the bowl or the last. Good manners prevents most people from taking as much as they want (for instance, if you don't like meatloaf but wanted extra chicken), and for the price you shouldn't have to leave without having to loosen your belt!
