Ron's RIP


Last month, I published a lament for some of the restaurants that've closed in Nashville over the past few years. Well, another eatin' place can now be added to the list. Ron's BBQ & Fish has closed.

I just talked about Ron's and the great meatloaf served there. Here's what I said:

While it's not as good as my late Granny Ruby's meatloaf, Ron's meatloaf gets real close. It is expertly seasoned and filled with chopped onions. Some restaurants go overboard slathering their meatloaf in tomato sauce or ketchup, but not Ron's. Ron puts just enough tomato sauce atop his meatloaf to serve as a slightly spicy garnishment; and for that he is to be commended.

Ron's BBQ & Fish served the best soul food in Priest Lake/Antioch. And now it's closed. Perhaps Joltin' Django should gather his Granny's recipes and start a restaurant ...

Ron's sign is now up at the old "Tanuki" (I think) Japanese restaurant location, right beside China Pan between the Kroger & Outback near Hickory Hollow Mall. They still have brown paper covering the windows (renovation does not appear to have started yet), but I thought you would like to know!

Someone told me that Ron's was moving to "Hickory Hollow" a couple of weeks ago. He didn't really sound like he knew what he was talking about, so I quickly dismissed what he told me. Looks like he was right!

If you've never been to Ron's, check it out sometime. You'll be glad you did.
