Old 23rd Restaurant

Nestled in the small town of Big Sandy in the western part of Tennessee, the Old 23rd Restaurant is a unique destination for tourists in the area looking for authentic southern fare. Housed in the historic 1800s log home Christopher Manor, owner Linda Zanaty's vision for a regular stop for the community,along with a gem for those traveling through, is realized in the cozy dining area and old fashioned fare. Just like dropping in at Mom's for dinner, she already has the menu planned and the food ready before you walk in the door. Local musicians often entertain during dinner, and don't be surprised if the owner or her son stop by your table to say hello.
