Wendell Smith's Corner

Since 1952, Wendell Smith's West Nashville micro-mall has been the last stop for people trying to get the hell out of town. Okay, that's my imagination. But there's something about Wendell's neon-and-stone-block wonderland that conjures dreams of illicit elopements and fedora-wearing bad guys on the run. Currently housing a meat-and-three restaurant (some say Nashville's best), a liquor store, a jewelry shop, a mini-mart and a short-term loan store (not recommended), Wendell's Corner has the essentials covered. With the success of fellow Charlotte Pike-area businesses such as Miel restaurant and Coco's Italian Market, here's hoping that Wendell's legacy gets to serve another generation of Nashville fugitives.
