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 ...
