Glasgow’s dining scene is a melting pot of cuisines, from casual Tex-Mex and steak houses to Asian fare, pizza and fast food. And with that kind of culinary diversity, you can find a satisfying meal in town no matter what you’re craving.

Popular Glasgow Restaurants

If you’re a steak-and-potato type of person, be sure to stop at Colton’s Steak House & Grill, a Glasgow favorite known for excellent steak and rib dinners, savory Caesar salads and homemade yeast rolls. Colton’s also serves a variety of seafood, including fried catfish, mesquite-grilled salmon, pan-seared tilapia, and grilled or fried shrimp.

At A Little Taste of Texas Cafe, you might think you’ve been transported to the Lone Star State. The family-owned café serves a killer Breast of Chicken Monterey topped with sautéed onions, mushrooms and white cheese served with cowboy beans, rice and jalapeno sweetbread. Another popular menu item is the Lone Star Barbecue Plate, with lots of sweet, spicy pork barbecue piled on a bun. Be sure to save room for homemade blackberry or pecan cobbler a la mode for dessert.

Other local favorites include Buckhead Café, Los Mariachis Mexican Restaurant and Garcia’s Grill.

Bounty of the Barrens Farmers Market

Nothing beats fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, and they are easy to find in Glasgow. The Bounty of the Barrens Farmers Market opened in downtown Glasgow in summer 2009 and welcomes visitors every Saturday during warm-weather months. It gives more than two dozen local farmers the opportunity to sell their goods in the back parking lot of the BB&T Bank building on West Main Street.

Shoppers can purchase baked goods, local honey, eggs, meats, cheese from Kenny’s Country Cheese, fruit from Jackson’s Orchard and hydroponic vegetables, such as tomatoes and lettuce, from Trigg Enterprises. Along with all the tasty edibles, the farmers market features live music by local musicians and cooking demonstrations by area chefs.

In December, the market opens for one day to offer meats, eggs, honey and handmade crafts for the holidays.

My favorite thing to do here is take my little girl to the park or drive out to the lake. Where I live we can walk across the street and be at a small playground area.
