Robert’s Western World’s “Recession Special” Is The Best Meal Deal In Nashville

Prices everywhere going through the roof these days.

Gas, lumber, food, housing – whatever it is you’re buying, you’re probably paying more for it.

That’s why you can’t pass up a deal like the Recession Special at Robert’s Western World when you visit Nashville.

Robert’s Western World is one of the last authentic honky tonks on Broadway, a beacon of hope for real country music fans amidst a sea of 6-story mega-bars owned by country music superstars.

Now, Robert’s is nothing fancy, and you won’t hear any pop country. But if you’re overwhelmed by the crowds of bachelorette parties – or the prices – at any of the others bars on Broadway, then Robert’s is a welcome respite.

Like most bars on Broadway, you can grab a bite to eat at Robert’s if you need something to soak up all that alcohol. But unlike the other bars, you’re not going to find any fancy plates on the menu.

No, this is the kind of food you’d expect to find at a bar: Fried or grilled right behind the bar and served in a paper tray.

And the star of the menu is the Recession Special.

For just $6, the Recession Special will get you a fried bologna sandwich piled high with thinly sliced bologna (they don’t skimp just because it’s cheap), along with a bag of chips, a Moon Pie (another Tennessee special) and a cold PBR. All for just SIX BUCKS.

I mean, just look at it. It’s beautiful.

And knowing that’s it’s only going to set you back as much as one beer at most bars on Broadway? You can’t beat that, folks.

Robert’s also offers DAILY specials of $2.50 PBR, Busch, Busch Light and Miller High Life – all day every day.

Oh, and they also have some of the best music on Broadway, with their bands playing only traditional country music (like this time the drummer FELL THROUGH A WINDOW playing “Ghost Riders In the Sky”).

Real deal country music, a damn feast for $6, and $2.50 beers?

Why would anybody go anywhere else on Broadway?
