GUEST,J Where have all the 'Greasy Spoons 'gone (92* d) RE: Where have all the 'Greasy Spoons 'gone 14 Sep 05


There's a place well worth mentioning in Springhill, Tn. The Poplar House is the best kept secret in the Greater Nashville area. The food is solid, formica table, mismatched utensil, chipped coffee cup, downhome good. Generous portions. It's been there for years. I'll recommend the Super Cheeseburger w/double fries, peach cobbler ala mode and coffee. Lots of blue hair, mesh hats, bib overalls, bolo ties and no alcohol. On Saturday nights there's music starting at 7:00PM(CST) and it goes until everyone gets too tired to dance. Usually a local bluegrass band such as the Hood Family(the fiddler's only 11) the Retreads or the Fireside Pickers will do an hour. Then the Tennessee Travelers until closing.
    If you come to Nashville for a holiday or business and have a Saturday night free you'll spend less than 50.00US(for two...including a generous tip!) and have the time of your life. Take I65 South, exit at The Saturn Parkway and go west. Exit the parkway at Route 31 and go north 2-3 miles and the Poplar House is on the left...can't miss it. It's about 35-40 miles from Nashville.
    Get there around 6:30PM to get a good seat. There's plenty of seating though you may end up behind the staging area or at one of the two long 'picnic style' community tables.
    The owners' names are Beckey and Pete. Pete plays the guitar and Beckey plays the autoharp, but Beckey's married to Zeke the fiddle player in The Travelers. Curley plays banjo and Jim plays dobro. Stop in and say hello...it doesn't get any better.
