Yum! I loved my Visit!

Yum! I loved my visit!

"I  arrived in Bell Buckle, TN for Daffodil Days. The weather was wonderful  and it was the perfect day to shop. We went to the Bell Buckle Cafe and  ordered pork chops, green beans and potatoes. Wow! It was home cooked  and fresh. The cafe was busy, but they were good about getting us seated  at a table as soon as there was an available spot. You must try this  place! It is a must - go -to restaurant. 5 Stars!

Great Food!

Local  spot packed with short wait. Country fried steak excellent. 3 sides:  potato salad fair at best, ordered fried corn and got creamed, apples ok  but out of can. Good gravy on steak. Excellent service. Even bought a  t-shirt. 5 Stars!

Yelp Review! Doreen B. 5 Stars!

Come on of course I had a five star experience, it's Bell Buckle y'all. I  was told ...everything was made in house. Since I was going to a  catering event, my parents and  I needed a place to chill for about an  hour. So we came to this little quaint cafe, that was full to the gills  with both locals and tourists like me. I only have two four words: Grits  cake with coffee!!!
The waitresses, the cashier, the cooks, were so  delightful, and as you leave they have a variety of Moon Pies. Bell  Buckle is famous for their Moon Pie festival, so I bought like $10  dollars worth. It was nice because they had banana, salted caramel, and  strawberry.
They also have  a small area of Bell Buckle goods to sell, like hot sauce, salsa, and pickles to name a few.

Yelp Review, Christopher F., 5 Stars!

Bell Buckle is a railroad town south of Murfreesboro and a perfect  little drive. Once you arrive in town you cannot miss the Bell Buckle  Cafe. This is a charming southern style restaurant with wonderful home  cooked meals. This is my sister in law from Hawaii having the chicken  pot pie. One picture of the wonderful meal before her and just how  pleased she is to have it says it all! The chicken fried steak is great  too! Well everything is great really! But here's the secret to the Bell  Buckle Cafe: order the fried biscuits!!!! No other words just add these  to your bucket list! Go there, Get them, and be happy!!   The way they  stack the drinks is unique too, if you want to see one waitress carry  six drinks at once go to the Bell Buckle Cafe. I can easily recommend  this to all my friends and family.

Road Trip! 5 Stars!

Me  and my girlfriends headed to TN from Birmingham on a road trip.  1st  place we went to was the cafe.  Oh my goodness,  the food was delicious  and the service was fast and super friendly.   You have to try the fried  biscuits!!!!!
