Loveless Cafe has been a staple of the Nashville community and what I like to call the world wide community of soul food lovers, or the WWCOFS for short. Many people know this genre of food as soul food, meat and three, southern, or even comfort food. As a native of Nashville, I have been coming to Loveless since before I was born. For a while all the hype was true, Loveless was the best place to go if you want real southern food. However, more than just management changed years ago, and it hasn't been able to restore the former quality that everyone from this town remembers. Now Loveless is busier than they ever have been and the food isn't even half as good. Now, this next piece of information isn't something to go spreading around to everyone you know visiting or living in Nashville. The reason this place is special is because there aren't herds of people being bussed in to wait 45 minutes in line for cheese grits slathered in a stack of Kraft American singles to the point you feel like you're drinking processed cheese whiz with a sprinkle of grits. You won't feel like you are inside a chain restaurant owned by Opryland. There isn't anyone trying to sell you merchandise while you are cooped up in the waiting area trying to decide whether or not you want to wait any longer for this food.

New Jersey is not usually recognized for having fantastic food. However, it is known as the Garden State and is home to some of the best fresh and luscious foods. Foods such as corn, tomatoes, and peaches have a deep history in New Jersey and are known for having a delightful and juicy taste. This list contains the some of the most popular foods in New Jersey.
The restaurant chain world has seen quite a few outstanding franchises in its time. Joe's Crab Shack and Buffalo Wild Wings, for example, have a ton of loyal fans who use them as their go-to venues. Even Taco Bell and McDonald's have a fairly loyal customer base, and that tends to allude to some degree of success.
Boutique dessert spots are spreading like wildfire, but why waste time trying to decide which ones to visit when you can head straight to the best cupcake shops in LA instead? Each of these spots emanates a certain passion for baking, and it shines through when you take a look inside their pastry cases.
New Jersey is a state defined by food. Being right south of New York City, our Garden State is bombarded by tons of different influences from all the different cultures that pass through to and from New York to the rest of the country. Every culture brings food, and, thus, our food culture becomes more and more distinct with each person to pass through our borders.
