I wavered between a 3 and a 4 on this one. My family really enjoyed their meals. Mine was just good, not fantastic. Menu was varied and had Vegan items. There definitely is something for everyone. Pasta, burgers, Mexican, sandwiches, etc, etc. I had the pork chop. It was good. Others at the table had the shrimp and catfish. Everybody... More

The Mac and cheese taste like my grandmother's. The cheeseburger and the dusted onion straws where good.

Dust, clean, wash your windows. Get the air conditioning fixed where it will keep the restaurant cool. What in the world did you do to your fried pickle recipe. The pickles in there are so thin you can't taste them all you taste is the breading. I've been a fan but I can't come back to y'all make changes.

My husband and I were out for a drive and got hungry. We asked a local where we should get lunch and were directed to the White Possum. I'm not going to lie, I was really nervous to eat at a restaurant with possum in the name. Thankfully, the possums were all in the decor and not on the menu.... More

A little gem in Smithville Tennessee. The first picture is South of the Border small portion and the second is off the Hot Bar.

Great Meat and two specials...Their menus items give a different food experience compared to the other sit down restaurants in Smithville... They like to take standard American food plates and make their own White Possum version!

The have some good food. The chicken fried steak seems like it is hand breaded in the restaurant which is a rarity anymore. My children absolutely love the chicken strips they do very good with the prices for a small town restaurant just trying to make it the only problem I wish they were open 7 days a week I... More

That's right no possum on the menu. Haha Had the ready made food. Made the mistake of not getting the dressing, was told it was the best. Food was tasty and fresh. The price was pretty good too. Service was the best.

A great example that good food does not have to be expensive. As fate would have it, this is one of my favourite local places and they are probably one of the best meat and three places in the area. Situated strategically close to the western edge of town it is an easy in and out with the food always... More

Friendly roadside joint provides almost everything you'd expect to find on the menu of a real central Tennessee Mom and Pop Restaurant. We stopped in for lunch and at the prices they ask you can't go wrong. Everything was well seasoned stick to your bones home cooked food. I really enjoyed the chicken fried steak and the mashed potatoes. I... More
