Demos has a few locations around Nashville, it’s been a popular purveyor of Italian cuisine for quite some time. With its wide variety of delicious steaks, pasta and seafood available at relatively reasonable prices, this is a nice semi-casual place where you’ll find plenty of families and large groups feasting on delicious dishes on a cheap dime. The real charm of Demo’s is it’s such a people-friendly place; it’s always warm here, the service is always exemplary, and all in all the founding family did its job well; there’s an unmistakably contagious good mood that pervades this place as I come back year after year.

The beautiful and elaborate Crystal Grand Banquet Hall in Lemont, Illinois is designed exclusively for large-scale engagements. Situated in southwestern Chicago’s quaint neighborhoods, the hall has been host to weddings, birthdays, and other formal events. The meals are grand in scope and scale to be sure, and the environment more then makes the night, but Crystal Grand’s variety of in-house foods provide a wide array of options for planners to hold a sizable meal. I have to say, the building is beautiful, the people are amazing and the experience is grand, but the food isn’t outstanding.
When you live in Athens, there are few places so good you’d be willing to drive 30 minutes for the food. Fortunately, Millstone BBQ is one of those places. Offering southern smoked barbecue for the traveler heading down State Route 33. Located on the road between Athens and Columbus, the eatery is an unassuming stop that packs an experience worth coming back for. More than once. Its signature product is pit barbecue, which it offers in chicken, beef and turkey varieties, but there’s no question the pork is the star of the show.
