    the old pulaski cemetery was used from 1827 to 1888. the cemetery is the final resting place of early pulaski settlers and confederate solders. the cemetery fell into disrepair and converted in to a public park in 1968. an interesting place to visit when in pulaski.

    Tony and I was driving around today outside of Nashville. We drove about 1 1/2 hrs south of Nashville, and ended up in a small town near the Alabama border off Rt 64 in a town called "Pulaski".
    It was such a great quaint little town. We decided to get out and walk around and take some pictures.
    On our way out of town looking for Rt 31A off Rt 31..it was getting to be about 1pm so we decided to grab a bite to eat. We found a diner called "Rusty Spur Diner". It is a small location, but said it was family owned and operated. We went in and it was very rustic decor making you feel like you were out west!!!
    In the front entrance was a bar with about 6 stools and three high top pub style tables and then floor space is sort of "L" shaped, so down the side was about 10 tables.
    We grabbed a table. The place was about half full. The waitress approached us immediately and asked how we were. She was young and friendly. We told her we were passing through and liked the name and opted to stop. She thanked us for stopping in and asked us for our drink order.
    Tony got a budweiser in a bottle and I took a sweet tea with lemon. She asked us if we would like to try the special of the day, which was "French Dip" with Fries and Tea for only $6.99. We took two..but of course Tony's was a beer and not a tea...for only a $1 more...great deal..both plates piled high with Roast Beef so tender it melted, with Swiss cheese melted and gooey, with mushrooms and thin slices of onions, on a hoagie bun. Big ole French Fries deep fried golden..and a gravy au juis for dipping.

    IT WAS AWESOME!!!
    OMG..my only problem, my stomach wasn't big enough to eat all of mine!!!
    I would definitely order this again, and I would definitely eat here again!!!
    Taxes and all, drinks food everything less than $18 plus tip...if you are in PULASKI...stop at the RUSTY SPUR DINER off Main Street...you will not be disappointed !!!!

    It's easy to get to know the entire staff when you live here

    Favorite Dish: Southwest grilled Chicken
    Breast of chicken grilled in Johnny sauce covered with Monterry Jack, scallions, chopped tomato, bacon, with Johnny's special BBQ sauce it's mighty good

    Favorite thing: See Milky Way farm....once owned by Frank Mars (of Mars Candy fame) the farm is a shell of its former self but still impressive...it holds the largest one piece dining room table in the world

    Fondest memory: The Christmas lights strung on the dome of the courthouse always means a kind of nostaglia and bittersweetness.
