Shotgun Willie’s Barbecue

Texas meets Tennessee at an East Nashville diner called Shotgun Willie’s

More Information

When Bill Laviolette moved to Nashville from his home in Houston, he carried a dream. A place of his own where he could offer Texas brisket, along with Tennessee style barbecue. The journey to achieving that dream was almost derailed. But, Bill's hard work and strong conviction paid off at a place called Shotgun Willie's.

Open Wednesday through Sunday. 11 am until sold out.
