Crazy Bull Saloon

125 Lewis Hollow Rd
Dickson, 37055
Reviews:
I absolutely ADORE this place! Super friendly and attentive staff in a super clean environment. Live bands almost every weekend with an awesome DJ on the side! A decent selection of beer and liquors with GREAT specials pretty much every day! They also have pretty good pizzas and chicken strips too, lmao! Overall, just a really cool place to go chill on the weekends with the local crowd. Maybe shoot some pool or darts, or go watch some live bands. The DJ pulls in a HUGE party after midnight or so on most weekends with hip hop/dance hits and techno/dubstep etc... For a small town local bar, this one is definitely the BEST in town. Also the only one around that allows indoor smoking (it's a pretty big place, so it never really gets smokey).

Back Alley BBQ

105 E College St
Dickson, 37055
Reviews:
This is hands down the best BBQ in the area. There are some other places closer to us that we like, but when company comes to town or we are just ready for excellent food we are more than willing to drive an hour to experience Back Alley BBQ. The pulled pork and brisket are moist and tender. The house BBQ sauce is a vinegar based sauce, which I am not really fond of in general. I love the meat with or without sauce. The sides are excellent as well. All made from scratch and delicious. In particular, I love the cornbread which is sliced, buttered and then fried on a griddle until it is warm and toasty. Desserts are also made from scratch and very tasty. The only thing that I wish they would do different is be open all the time. The hours are a little different as they close at 2 PM and re-open at 5 PM. The locals have this figured out and there is often a small line at 5. Don't miss out on this if you are anywhere in the area.
Best BBQ in Dickson. I've had pulled pork, Ribs, Brisket & Chicken. All are wonderful. Someone here knows a thing or 12 about BBQ. The ribs are my Favorite. Try this place out!
Brisket. The hardest meat to get tender, moist, and flavored. Back Alley BBQ nailed it. Perfectly smoked, sliced to order, and included a burnt end (if you wanted it). The brisket was on point and as good as any brisket I've had. The sauce offering is good, but not needed. Great meat comes with it's own sauce and added sauce isn't necessary. Back Alley BBQ understands this well. It's worth the drive from Nashville! The sides were good, homemade like, and I was happy with the baked beans and slaw. The only reason there isn't a fifth star is because the meat portion was too small. I know that beef prices are high these days, but I'd rather have smaller sides or pay a buck or two more.

Reviews:
Very clean for a fast food restaurant. I've never had a single order wrong. Also, the staff is always very courteous and approachable. Great place for a quick bite to eat!
I hold this place to high standards out of all restaurants I worked at in high school this was the only one with a kitchen you could work in and then eat from.
This establishment is very clean. It's a good environment generally as well. The employes were kind and delivered my food in a timely manner. If you like Arby's this is one of the best I've experienced!

Dickson Donuts

315 Highway 46 S
Dickson, 37055
Reviews:
It's a good thing this place isn't close, or I'd be there every week. The donuts are outstanding. And they run out early on weekends - there's frequently a line out the door. But it's all worth it.
Best place for donuts that's local. The employees are friendly, and the donuts are lower priced. Absolutely the best donuts, biscuits, Apple fritters, cinnamon rolls, and croissants. The line is always out of the door, so that's a downside. And if you get there late morning, it's first come first serve. But it's definitely worth all its downsides. For certain, Dunkin is put to shame!
Two words: Apple. Fritters. Seriously. That's all you need to know. They are excellent fresh, but I like them best when they are a day or two old and they get kind of crunchy. Your mileage may vary. I've always been a little weird. The pink glazed donuts are awesome, too, but these guys don't make a lot of extra anything (no next day bargains) and some donuts that aren't big sellers (like the pink one) they may only put out two or three in a day. You snooze, you lose. Their coffee is mediocre at best.

Front Porch On Center Ave

Reviews:
6 women friends had a 2 night getaway at nearby Montgomery Bell State Park. We made our way to downtown Dickson and found The Front Porch. It was wonderful! Beautiful decor, friendly hostess. Our server had helpful recommendations. Blue plate special was enjoyed by two. Mixed greens with grilled salmon was to die for! All menu items delicious - including coconut trifle for dessert. Will definitely be back!
Were looking forward to eating at a 'local' place instead of the usual places at the exit. Reviews convinced us it was worth going out of the way a bit. Imagine our disappointment when found it closed. Sign said lunch served til 2, M-F, though yelp indicated it was open. Lesson learned....Call to check on hours.
Great local restaurant! I was so happy to find a non-chain place to get lunch. The place was packed when I got there (always a good sign). They had a list of specials on a chalkboard and I ordered the grilled cheese and tomato soup off of it. Perfect for a cold day. Both were very good! The soup had a great taste. It came with a piece of corn bread and a roll with, maybe, maple sugar on top- something like that. It was sooo good- like a dessert! I come to Dickson for work every once in awhile and I will definitely be stopping here again.

Lugo’s

107 S Main St
Dickson, 37055
Reviews:
This place is sooooooo good! Always a delight coming here. We had the Filet and the homemade cheesecake is one of the best! Very creamy.
Certainly the only place like this in Dickson. Valentine's Day was booked, so we came in on this Thursday night for the regular menu. We had a mix of dishes: shrimp, beef and grouper. Salads were all very fresh and tasty. The main dishes were all attractively presented and nicely prepared. Portions are not large, but enough. For Dickson, it's expensive, but the same experience in larger venues would be at least as much. Service is good but a bit inexperienced for high-end dining. Not a problem. Great attitude, nothing missed. We didn't have dessert, but the choices looked very good. Good bottle of Oregon Pinot Noir.
Don't skip this place. It's just as good as any higher tier restaurants. Victor takes a lot of pride in what they serve. He's a creative chef that won't leave you disappointed!

Las Plazas Mexican Restaurant

18 Mathis Dr
Dickson, 37055
Reviews:
This is our favorite place in town. We've been eating there since they opened and have never had a bad experience. The staff is very friendly and it's a good place to take kids. It is always clean. The food is fresh and affordable and offers a wide variety of authentic Mexican dishes. Our favorites include the enchiladas Verde, vegetarian fajitas, and Jim nachos. Also great for takeout!
Excellent food and ambiance accompany the friendly staff! This has been our favorite Mexican restaurant for over 3 years! They even have a large covered patio for rainy or chilly weather. Will definitely be back!
This is the best Mexican food place around here. We are regulars, so they already know what everyone wants. The food is very good, and prices are low. Service is attentive and friendly. Beware of the birthday celebration -- if you don't want cake in your face, let them know. It's all in fun, but not everyone likes it.

Tony B’s

255 Dickson Plaza Dr
Dickson, 37055
Reviews:
Best burger in Dickson for sure. Possibly the best in Middle Tennessee. The burgers taste fresh and the fries are for sure fresh. When you walk in you can see this big stainless steel bowl overflowing with fresh cut fries. Delish! My wife often gets a salad (she's trying to eat healthy) and loves it. Like one of the reviewers said, if you are anywhere close to Dickson for lunch, ya gotta give Tony B's burger a try.
The best burger I have had in ages. Made fresh in front of you in an open kitchen. Great quality produce. Nice, casual atmosphere. I have heard they also have great salads, but I can't get past the burgers to try one!
Best burger you can get. Period. Tony B's has earned my vote as the best burger joint anywhere. Hand made burgers, fresh cut fries, all delicious. The patty melt is so good it might make you pass out. I've been to five guys, cheeseburger charlies, etc... None come close to this place in my opinion. If you are anywhere close to Dickson and you need a burger fix, this is it.

Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant

180 Beasley Dr
Dickson, 37055
Reviews:
Great Service and Great Food. They have the best chips and salsa in town, hands down. The food is always good, hot, and fast. The top menu item is the fajitas (the lunch special for Thursday and Friday). If you are looking for some great Mexican food, Mazatlan should be your first stop.
Fairly good food, the sauce is OK. The permeable wood bowls for the sauce are a bit disturbing, I'm not really sure how they clean them? But the special dinner was just over ten dollars and had a ton of food that was very good. Extra star for the quantity of food otherwise a 3 star place. :-)
Three of us walked in and we were promptly seated by a friendly little man and had a basket of hot chips and a spicy bowl of salsa in a matter of seconds. I ordered a side of guacamole and although it needed a bit of salt, it was fantastic. My husband had a #22 which was a Chile Rellenos and a crispy taco with rice and beans. He considers himself a "Chile Rellenos" connoisseur. He thought it was pretty good and said he would order it again. I ordered the "Burrito Mexicano" which was a beef fajita burrito stuffed with grilled onions and bell peppers covered with a cheese sauce and sour cream. It was delicious and very filling. I'd recommend for anyone who loves big burritos. The tacos carne de asade left a lot to be desired. There was no cilantro, onion or limes of any kind which I thought was the norm on these tacos. The fajita steak they used was fatty and I had a hard time chewing it. I wouldn't order these again. Service was exceptionally fast. I'm talking like 5-10 minutes for four meals. Our waiter kept our drinks filled and the food was good. I'll be back.
