On a family trip to Nashville, TN, we went to a new place in the neighborhood called Bellevue for BBQ. We dined at Honeyfire BBQ in a relatively new multi-use community called One Bellevue Place. People can live, shop, and be entertained there. Bellevue is only 10 minutes away from downtown Nashville and right off I-40 and US 70 South.
One Bellevue Place has 300 apartments, professional and medical office space, restaurants, and an AMC 12 movie theatre. Soon it will have two ice skating rinks in a sports facility hosted by the Nashville Predators and Ford. The Ford Ice Center is scheduled to be opened in September 2019. The Sports complex will feature two ice rinks which will allow hundreds of hockey teams and figure skaters to compete and practice locally.
This location is where the old Bellevue Mall used to be located, which was torn down in 2015 after a decline in shoppers and stores moving out due to other area malls that drew their shoppers away.
We were happy to dine at Honeyfire BBQ, home of Grand Champion BBQ Pitmaster Shane Nasby. He started out catering in Middle, TN, then lucky for us he opened a brick and mortar with business partner Ben Claybaker. I loved their clean lines with the black and white interior where you can sit inside or outside on their wrap around porch. There is a grassy area between their restaurant and other Nashville favorite places to eat; a favorite for us is DeSano Pizza, which has great pizza!
We enjoyed a little of almost everything! There were eleven of us, so we got a chance to eat a variety of dishes.
We started out with a drink called Kentucky Mule, to which they add Fireball Cinnamon Whiskey for a twist. Our bartender Ryan was full of personality, as you can see, and he was an excellent sport to allow me to take a few photos of him!
He told us they carry a large variety of whiskeys, over 170 of them to be exact, and many are local to the area.
One dish we had was the Augustus Fries: beer battered fries, creamy white queso, bourbon baked beans, hickory smoked pulled pork with Honeyfire original sauce and buttermilk dressing.
Another couple of our friends got the Harlen Nachos: Naco’s House-made tortilla chips, creamy white queso cheese, hickory smoked pulled pork, and bourbon baked beans, topped with HoneyFire Original Sauce, sour cream and jalapenos.
My husband and I got the Four Play dinner tray, which consisted of pulled pork, pulled smoked chicken, beef brisket, Honeyfire ribs, smoked kielbasa sausage, which was terrific! The way they prepare the kielbasa is extra delicious, and I am not a sausage lover! The sides we choose were mac and cheese, which they make with a white queso sauce, corn pudding, and bourbon baked beans.
Unfortunately, we did not have room for dessert. It all looked so tempting; they have PB banana pudding, a creamy pudding layered with Nutter Butter cookies, bananas, peanut butter, and whipped cream; a sugar cream pie that consists of silky sweet filling on a buttery crust; and a key lime pie. They even have chocolate chip cookies with candied bacon on top of it. The next time we go to Nashville we’re going to try it!
Let me know if you have ever been to Honeyfire BBQ or if you plan on going the next time you are in Nashville, TN.
