Dig Diner Classics at Elliston Place Soda Shop
Today, Closed Today
Need a date-night idea? Head to this old-school soda shop for an ice-cream float, burger with fries and jukebox tunes.
You'll feel like you're stepping back in time after visiting Ellison Place Soda Shop. Their retro decor is a definite throwback to a simpler time and place. Decking out pieces of nostalgia—swiveling barstools, soda on tap and tin signs—this is one of Nashville's only authentic diners. It's been around since 1939 and it's on the National Register of Historic Places!
While you may have to wait a while, if you stop in during peak times, once you're seated the service is fast and friendly. When ordering, go for a classic burger with a southern twist—a cheeseburger topped with grilled onions and pimento cheese—served with a side of shoe-string fries and a chocolate malt shake. If you're with your sweetie, end the meal by throwing a few quarters into the jukebox and sipping from the same straw (just like in the movies!).
