I am attending a five day conference at at the Opryland resort. I will be traveling solo and this will be my first trip to Nashville.
* I have a limited budget for lunch (around $10) and dinner (around $15).
* I have access to a car and easy parking would be important. I understand that paying for parking may be necessary.
In particular, I was trying to find some decent food options near the conference site around for LUNCH. I assume the food options on site will be mediocre and expensive... but I could be wrong. Lunch is not included in my conference fee.
I will have about an hour and fifteenth minutes for lunch (which will need to also include travel time). I am having a hard time judging how long it will take to get from point A to point B because of traffic.
I am open to anything from a counter service restaurant, a food truck, table-service restaurant, or even a sports bar. I lam open to anything (BBQ to ethnic food to vegetarian).
I know there are the "usual suspects" near by (aka chain restaurants like the Cracker Barrel) but I was hoping for a non big chain restaurant.
For dinner am trying to stay within a 15 minute driving time but I am less concerned about time for dinner. I'm not looking for any fancy. I have checked out the other recent threads but would be open to any other suggestions that may be close by and not incredibly complicated to find : )
Again, I have no idea how easy Nashville is to navigate and I will most likely be tired after a long day.
Thanks in advance!
