Bigger Is Better. Edley’s BBQ Expands!


Bigger Is Better. Edleys BBQ Expands

NASHVILLE (May 21, 2014)Edley’s Bar-B-Que is excited to announce some big changes to their 12 South location.  Over the past several weeks, Edley’s Bar-B-Que renovated the space next door to accommodate a larger volume of customers. The expansion provides 900 square feet, including 46 additional seats, a 14 person bar, 16 beer taps, and a new sidewalk seating area. The old bar is being moved across the restaurant to the new side of the building to accommodate larger groups and reduce over crowding during the lunch and dinner rush hours. The new design will also alleviate bottlenecks around the order line and coke machines.

“We realized it can get kinda crowded during peak times and when the opportunity was presented for us to expand into the space next door, we felt like it was the right timing. 12 South is our home and we’re excited to give the customers a better experience.” – Will Newman

Edley’s Bar-B-Que is a southern BBQ restaurant founded on the dreams of carrying out a family legacy. Owner Will Newman’s grandfather, Edley Newman, was “a tribute to all things southern” because of the way he dedicated his life to family and the Viola, TN community. Family and community driven, Edley’s Bar-B-Que strives to live out the life of the late Edley Newman through southern BBQ and hospitality. Edley’s Bar-B-Que has two locations: In the 12 South Neighborhood and East Nashville. Established in 2011 by barbecue lovers Will and Catharine Newman to serve the Nashville community, Edley’s serves meats smoked low and slow daily by executive chef and pitmaster Bret Tuck using local White Oak wood. In a tribute to the region’s meat and three tradition, Edley’s also offers eight to ten Southern style sides made from scratch every day with recipes inherited from friends and family.

House specialties include Edley’s legendary brisket, the Tuck Special Sandwich (brisket, housemade spicy pimento cheese, over-easy egg, red and white sauce, pickles), BBQ Nachos and more. Edley’s has been featured in publications such as Southern Living, Nashville Lifestyles, The Tennessean, The Huffington Post, Virgin Australia and many more. In 2013, Edley’s was also named Nashville Lifestyles and Nashville Scene Readers’ Poll Awards- Best BBQ. Edley’s also offers barbeque catering to Nashville and surrounding areas.
