The Best Places to Eat in Bartlett

Rooster’s Chicken Shack

With its simple menu and friendly staff, Rooster’s is the place to go for mouthwatering chicken. Don’t expect fancy packaging or an elegant ambiance; this “shack” is a fast food sort of place and offers a drive-through for your convenience. Whatever you choose to order, be sure it includes their juicy, flavorful chicken.

Side Porch Steak House

Do you ever feel out of place at fussy, white-tablecloth restaurants? Don’t worry about that at Side Porch Steak House. The ambiance is comfortable and homey, with drinks served in mason jars and buttery homemade “croutons” (seasoned bits of rolls) served before each meal. The steak is excellent (as it should be), as are sides like the baked potato and caesar salad.

Ali Baba Mediterranean Grill

With authentic shawarma and a wood-flame grill in the center of the kitchen, Ali Baba Mediterranean Grill offers a truly unique ambiance. Consider ordering a platter and appetizers to share so that everyone at the table can try their delicious shawarma meats, hummus, falafel, tabouleh, fattoush, and more.

Elena’s Taco Shop

It can be hard to find delicious SoCal Mexican food in Tennessee, but the tacos at Elena’s are on point, and the burritos are scrumptious too. No matter what you order, be sure to take advantage of the salsa bar at this fast food joint.

El Idolo

Speaking of good Mexican food, you can’t go wrong with El Idolo. You’ll find all your favorites – guacamole, refried beans, fajitas, carnitas, and more – and you certainly won’t leave hungry.

Wally Hatchet’s

When you want down-home comfort food in Bartlett, Tennessee, you want Wally Hatchet’s. The Mississippi Pot Roast is a fan favorite, but don’t forget about the grilled meatloaf and “Lipstick on a Cow” (burger topped with pimento cheese). Plus, they serve breakfast all day!

Oec Japanese Express

Don’t overlook this Japanese joint because of its small size – the food is incredible (and an incredible value). Try the sushi, yakisoba, spring rolls, and hibachi. Actually, order whatever you like because you really can’t go wrong!

Pho 64

As you would expect from a local restaurant with “pho” in the title, the flavorful and filling pho at Pho 64 is the best in Bartlett. It’s a hole-in-the-wall, no-frills sort of place, but don’t let that keep you away. The focus in on the food, as it should be!

Isabella’s Pizza

A classic NY-style pizza parlor, Isabella makes delicious pizza – it’s as simple as that. Fans love their tasty dough, fresh ingredients, and friendly staff. And if you aren’t in the mood for pizza, consider a calzone, pasta, or scrumptious sandwich.


Whether you’re craving comfort food, Mexican grub, Middle Eastern flavors, or flavorful pho, you can satisfy your taste buds in Bartlett, Tennessee. We hope you enjoy our picks for the best places to eat in Bartlett, but keep in mind that this is an ever-evolving list.
