Many places advertise the sandwich on their menu, I can't say anything about those...except for-
The Brown Hotel.-- This is a classic hotel dining facility. I went here one time several years ago with some teacher friends on a special lunch event. The dish was excellent, but 'dressed up' more than most sandwich lunchs would normally be. Rated 9 on a 10 scale
Lynns Paradise Cafe.- This place has been "Discovered" in recent years by every group from the Food Channel to the Yuppie Living Channel and every publication dealing with travel in the USA. As a result I think they are starting to believe their own media hype a bit too much. It is overcrowded most of the time, the prices have skyrocketed and the parking is still terrible (small-cramped- and crowded)
I had a Hot Brown here in 2003. It was good, but the breakfasts of Pecan Praline French Toast is much better! Tate the sandwich 7 on a 10 scale
Claudia Sanders Dinner House in Shelbyville. Much better atmosphere for a lunch in a relaxed environment. The Hot Brown is fair (Rate it 6 on a 10 scale) We don't normally go to C S Dinner House for a sandwich !!
