Where We Dine When Momma Doesn’t Want To Cook

snow white drive in 3

Sometimes Tara is just too tired to cook and we head over to Snow White Drive located right here in our home town.  This place was built back in the 50’s and is still operated just as it was when it opened.  You can “drive in”  and park, then do as the sign says and “flash headlights for service.”  Or you can leave your vehicle and step inside the modest diner for service.  Either way, you are in for a real treat.  This diner could have easily been a popular stop along Route 66 back in the day. But thankfully for those who live in Lebanon TN- Snow White Drive in is located on Main Street.snow white drive in 2

One of the most popular items on Snow White’s menu is their Smoked Pork BBQ and here’s the “smokehouse” located on the property next to the diner.  I do believe they offer the best pork BBQ I’ve ever tasted. The BBQ is especially tasty served on their flat cornbread with some fresh cole slaw.  They also have some of the best burgers and fries and onion rings around.  And they also offer a variety of meats and vegetables – all southern style like country fried steak, chicken and dressing, baked ham, roast beef and mashed potatoes.  And if you save room for dessert – you must try a hand made milk shake or the Coca Cola Cake or the Banana pudding. If you ever pass through Wilson County – this place is a must stop.
