The name of the place makes it worth a try!

Hillbilly Willys is ok, but the name is better than the food.

Near Nashville, Martins in Nolensville is the real deal. I went in skeptical and came out a believer

My sister served pulled pork from a local establishment at her son's christening in Huntsville. Can't say that I'd recommend it even if I could remember the name of the place. The locals thought highly of it, but I thought the meat lacked bark and the sauce was weak.

I'm from Huntsville, and a lot of folks down there think that Dreamland BBQ, and Lawler's is the best thing since sliced bread. Dreamland is probably my least favorite of them all. Best thing about Lawler's was their stuffed baked potato, loaded with cheese, bacon, sour cream, and pulled pork. I'm not certain Lawler's is still open though.

Ole Hickory in New Market, and Gibson's in Huntsville were always my favorite. I'd say give those a try.

They had great baked potatoes, and that was about it. I remember people telling me when I was a kid that Lawler's was owned by the wrestler Jerry "The King" Lawler. No clue if that was ever true - never took the time to find out, lol.

I would do Martin's in Nolensville. We were there a year ago and there wasn't a complaint to be had.

re: nashville.

pat martin's is good (and opening a second location in mt juliet later this year). best bet is to get a sampler so you can try a little bit of everything. if you like wine, get your samper to go and drive down the road to arrington vineyards (if you like country music, this vineyard is owned by kix brooks).

if you want something in nashville, hog heaven. get two sandwiches: (1) pork on pancake cornbread with their hot sauce; (2) chicken with white sauce on a bun. be advised that there is not a lot of seating, but it's next to centennial park, so you can just eat in your car or in the park.

the third option would be edley's. they have two locations, both of which are in trendy areas (12 south and east nashville). it's more hipster (i guess) than bbq shack. love their wings, brisket nachos and "tuck" sandwich specials.

Obviously this is a late reply, but I lived 3 blocks away from Hog Heaven on west end in Nashville for several years and it is legit-- as long as they are open, lol. HD would shut them down from time to time.

Meridianville Pitt BBQ is about 10 minutes North of Hsv on Hwy 231. They have better BBQ than anyone in Hsv, and their Brunswick Stew is killer !!
Whitt's in Fayetterville, Tn is about 15 minutes further North. They are comparable to Meridianville Pitt BBQ.

Huntsville BBQ sucks, and that's about as nice as I can put it.

Dreamland is OK at best. Had two work lunches there this past week and wasn't impressed with anything except the Banana Puddin' , it's GREAT !

Gibson's doesn't even deserve to be called a BBQ place. It's the most over-hyped place in the world ! Their BBQ is one of the most bland things Ive ever eaten.

Lawler's is about the same, but their loaded Baked Potato is awesome !
