Last night I went to meet up with an old friend. He was working an hour away from me in Mount Juliet TN. After sufficiently stalking the Eagle’s Nest Tavern, I agreed to eat dinner with him there. We walked in and we were greeted with a warm welcome. After we sat down and gave our drink order, we were given corn bread. The corn bread was served in a hot skillet with three differnet sauces… Apple, honey butter, and jalepano.
I put honey butter on the cornbread.
Then I added the jalapeno jelly.
It was amazing. Completely RiAnized.
Every month the Eagles Tavern has a special menu. For February, specials had to do with Creole food. They were doing it for Mardi Gras so I decided to order the hurricane off of their special menu.
A few years ago I went to Mardi Gras in New Orleans and the hurricane made me feel like I was back on Bourbon Street.
I told my friend that he was sharing the Bison nachos with me. He didn’t have much of a choice but he agreed anyway.
Most places don’t have bison on the menu but when they do I always need to order it. These nachos did not disappoint.
For my main course I decided to go with the hot chicken salad. I love Hot Chicken in Tennessee and I felt like eating something spicy.
I ordered the atomic flavored hot. The hottest option that they had on the menu.
Don’t get me wrong, the chicken was hot. But it wasn’t that hot. It wasn’t a make you cry, I need to drink milk kind of hot. It was a tolerable hot. I would eat it again.
My friend ordered the shepherd’s pie. This entree was different because it was also made with bison.
It was served in a hot Skillet. I had to take a bite. And I was happy that I did because it was really good.
I was interested in trying the Banana Foster beignet without any bananas, but by the end of our meal we were so full that we had to crawl out of the restaurant. I had a great experience here and I would definitely recommend stopping there if you’re ever in the Mount Juliet area.
