Tracing its roots back to the early 1800s as a train station, Bartlett, Tennessee has come a long way from its humble beginnings. The city proper is located less than 20 minutes from Memphis, but there is tons to do in Bartlett itself. From historic attractions to the city’s modern nightlife scene, Bartlett is filled with fun activities for the whole family. Dais Manor Plantation, home to the oldest log cabin in the county, offers a beautiful day of sightseeing, while the city’s downtown is brimming with bars, restaurants and taverns. You’ll find amazing Mexican restaurants, trendy American style bars and all sorts of good homestyle food in Bartlett.
Las Palmitas is hands-down the best Mexican joint you’ll find in Bartlett. With a beautiful ambiance and some truly authentic dishes, this restaurant is worth a trip any day. The chimichangas are the most popular dish here, especially the chicken chimichanga which comes slathered in an amazing queso fresco sauce. For dessert, be sure to give their fried cheesecake a try — you won’t regret it. Thanks to the super attentive waitstaff and the very clean restaurant, this place has a perfect family-friendly ambiance.
Ice cream, coffee, sweets and some great lunch food all makes Gelato one of Bartlett’s finest diners. Their ice cream (gelato, actually) is some of the best in the city. Whether you’re looking for a sweet sorbet or a rich chocolate, this place has you covered. Although they specialize in sweets, Gelato is a great place for lunch. Their Cubano sandwich is perfect, and any of their croissant sandwiches are mouth watering. But make sure you try their coffee. Whipped, black or with tons of sugar, the coffee variety here is excellent.
Don’t let the word “Express” in the name throw you off. Oec features 100% high class food. Whether you’re into sushi, beef, veggies or everything, there’s a dish here for you. The sushi is some of the best around, and the presentation is stunning. The crunchy sushi is a crowd favorite, although their California rolls are just as good. For full entrees, you can’t pass up the steak hibachi dinner, and the Takoyaki (basically fried meatballs topped with a beautiful array of fresh herbs and vegetables) is out of this world, give it a try to find out for yourself.
You don’t bring up restaurants down South without mentioning a great place for BBQ, and Ty’s picks up that gauntlet for Bartlett. While you’ll find some of the best BBQ in town here, their burgers are in a class of their own. For first timers, try their Iowa Tenderloin. Packed with a fat slice of breaded pork loin, then deep-fried and topped with pickles, this burger is a world of flavors. If you’d rather eat something a little healthier, their salad menu is amazing. The BBQ salad, with BBQ pork or turkey, is delicious, and the brisket salad is great for the extra buck or two.
While Las Palmitas has Bartlett covered for Mexican food, Arepas Deliciosas is the city’s hotspot for Colombian food. Although it’s similar to Mexican cuisine, Colombian food tastes a bit more American and is usually more filling. The specialty here is their arepas, a flatbread made from corn that they stuff to perfection. A solid bet for an empty stomach is their Arepa cons Agucate, which is stuffed to the max with chicken, tomatoes, avocados and lettuce. Between the veggies and the perfectly cooked chicken, this dish will have you signing hymns. The ambiance here is pretty peaceful — clean, hosted by an awesome wait staff and filled with beautiful bright colors.
Now that we’ve got Asian, Latin and Italian restaurants covered, anybody feeling some great homestyle cooking? If so, Firebirds Wood Fired Grill is what you’re looking for. Their food is exquisite, from the mouthwatering French dip to the pork loins. While the dishes here are made from classic American ingredients, they put a certain jazz to their dishes, like the grilled shrimp and strawberry salad and the sesame seed salmon. If you like filling, home cooked meals and are looking for a little excitement for you night, Firebirds is a must visit. As you can see in the image included above, the burger is well worth trying.
