Silver Sands

937 Locklayer St., Nashville, TN - (615) 742-1652
Silver Sands is a soul food cafeteria known for its great breakfast and for meat-and-three lunch. Meals are portioned out from a short cafeteria line that gives customers a view of what's to eat as well as the opportunity to discuss options with one of the team of servers behind the counter: What's good with smothered pork steak? (Answer: stewed apples and fried potatoes with onions.)

"The term "hole in the wall" could be accurately used to describe this joint. The inside is dismal and dreary. The few tables that are in the dining room are old, worn, and wobbly. Most of the patrons get in and get out of there as fast as possible! While the ..."   [Read More]

When you order a portion of these dense and satisfying grits, one of the ladies behind the counter will ask if you want butter. Yes, please. It is ladled on in abundance. In the background is a portion of rugged, full-flavored country ham.

Fried bologna is cut thick and topped with onions fried to tender sweetness. It doesn't have the character of country ham, but its piggy goodness cannot be denied.

As I went through the line, the kitchen had just run out of pork chops, so I ordered pork steak instead. It is a patty smothered in thick brown gravy. The big chicken wing also came with gravy, presenting the question: how does one eat a gravy-sopped chicken wing?

After filling a tray, you pay at the very end of the cafeteria line.
