Edley’s Bar-B-Que Opens for Breakfast


NASHVILLE (December 4, 2014)Edley’s Bar-B-Que in 12 South will open its doors on Saturday mornings for breakfast starting this Saturday, December 6th at 8am.

When Catharine and Will Newman first opened their 12 south location 3 years ago, they had no idea serving breakfast would ever be an option. “You know, we never really thought about it but we’ve been making breakfast since we opened. Our staff likes to make a quick breakfast before lunch prep,” said Catharine.

The Country Music Marathon course goes through the heart of 12 South and for the past 2 years, Edley’s has been open early to host fans and supporters with breakfast burritos filled with generous portions of pork and brisket. Bret Tuck, GM at Edley’s, said he would have people all day long asking if we could put these on the regular menu.

Catharine and Will decided to take the idea of having breakfast seriously this Fall when they asked close friends and family to join them at their 12 South location for a test run. “The response was really positive,” said Will, “and more importantly, our staff had a lot of fun. For them, it was a nice change from the usual lunch menu.”

Edley’s will feature a traditional Southern breakfast along with sides. An early favorite is the “Edley’s Breakfast Burrito,” filled with your choice of meat, eggs, cheese, hashbrowns, pico, fried jalapenos, cilantro, sour cream, and red bbq sauce. A different twist on french toast is their “All Things Southern French Toast,” which is homemade cornbread french toast topped with maple syrup and powdered sugar. A breakfast version of the famous Tuck Special will also be served. “Tuck’s Biscuit,” will feature a homemade buttermilk biscuit with brisket, an over easy egg, Edley’s pimento cheese, and topped with red and white sauce. Sides will include oatmeal, fruit, bacon, sausage, biscuits, grits casserole, hashbrowns, and sausage gravy.

In the future, there is a possibility of expanding breakfast to both locations and offering it on multiple days each week.
