Where I pick up from the most – notes from an Uber Eats driver in Nashville, Tennessee

As an Uber Eats driver mostly driving in south Nashville, I have put together a list of restaurants that seem to be popular with customers. This list is generally about where I pick up from, not necessarily anywhere I’ve visited as a customer, although as a vegan, half the list is possible. Most of the restaurants on this list are in south Nashville but also include a few in and around downtown. Also note that fast food restaurants like McDonald’s, Wendy’s, Taco Bell, etc will not be on this list.


Taj Indian Restaurant – This restaurant is on Nolensville Road and I’m convinced it’s the best Indian restaurant in Nashville. The staff is great (and the few times I’ve dined here as a customer were A+). Sometimes I’ll deliver all the way to downtown, or even east Nashville, and in my opinion if someone is ordering from 10+ miles away, that is a solid compliment to the food.

Eastern Peak – Asian cuisine with three locations in the Nashville area, one on Thompson Lane, another in the Gulch (12th Avenue area), and in Bellevue. I get offers to pick up here quite often.

Bar-B-Cutie – There are two locations that I pick up from regularly in south Nashville… one on Nolensville Road and another on Harding Pike, near Sam’s Club. There are a few others around middle Tennessee serving up BBQ and the fixings.

Hattie B’s – Barbecue with two locations (there are more, but two that I go to regularly), one on 8th Ave and another downtown on 19th Avenue between Broadway and West End.

Subculture – American fare in south Nashville, near the intersection of Nolensville Road and Old Hickory Boulevard. Another common pick-up location with great staff. Limited space for seating is the only hiccup you might encounter if you want to dine-in.

Jeni’s Splendid Ice Cream – There are a few of these spread around town, the one that always seems to have a long line is on 21st Ave… so try one of the other ones to avoid the wait. But it’s a compliment to the ice cream that people are willing to wait for it.

Sushi 88 – Japanese restaurant on Belcourt Avenue. My experience picking up food is about 60% good, and 40% of the time I have to wait a while, which is disappointing, especially when the staff doesn’t exactly inform me what is going on. Food must be good, though.

Hai Woon Dai – Korean restaurant near the intersection of Antioch Pike and Haywood Lane in south Nashville. I get a lot of offers from this restaurant and in my experience, the customers are usually Asian. This is a good sign that the food is authentic and delicious.

Kouzina Cafe – A popular Greek restaurant on Nolensville Road. Great staff and consistent orders from this place. Plenty of seating and if you get a chance, it’s worth checking out.


Are there any you’d add to this list? Comment below and thanks for stopping by!

Since 2005, I've called Nashville home. I'm the leader of the pack, which includes an 11-year-old beagle and a 9-year-old blue heeler mix. My days include writing, video editing, dog boarding, and other fun activities. Thanks for checking out my blog, I hope you enjoy it!

  1. Hai Woon Dai is so delicious! I have ordered delivery from most of these places, but am ashamed to say I have only been physically to one of them.
