10 Restaurants We’re Looking Forward to Opening in 2018

55 South - Martin's BBQ Spring Hill











10. Martin’s Bar-B-Que – Spring Hill

In early February 2017, Martin’s Bar-B-Que announced that it will be opening a location in Spring Hill. It was originally slated to open in late 2017, but with no opening date set yet, sometime in early 2018 is a safe bet.

The restaurant’s fifth Middle Tennessee home will be in Fresh Hospitality’s 3-acre site Shoppes at Spring Hill, on Wall Street between Captain D’s and AFC Urgent Care.

Martin’s has become known as one of the best places to get barbecue in the Nashville area and owner Pat Martin’s 25 years of barbecue experience has made the restaurants a success. “West Tennessee’s legendary whole-hog BBQ tradition is the cornerstone of Martin’s Bar-B-Que Joint,” states their site.

The restaurants have been featured on a variety of food shows including the Food Network, Travel Channel, Cooking Channel, and The Today Show and in publications such as Bon Appetit, Esquire, Conde Nast Traveler, and Men’s Journal.

Martin’s Barb-B-Que Joint has four Middle Tennessee locations – downtown Nashville, Belmont Blvd in Nashville, Mt. Juliet and Nolensville. They also have a location in West Virginia and Kentucky.

In Williamson County, you can visit Martin’s at 7238 Nolensville Rd in Nolensville. They are open 11am-9pm 7 days a week.

The 4,500-square foot space will sit next to another new restaurant, 55 South. Both are working with Fresh Hospitality.
