We have a lot of fast food restaurants in this area. We do have unique restaurants such as Mocarro, The Rice Box(Chinese), Elaine's, Sunset, Sake, Snow White, etc. We have multiple family owned restaurants here!
There are plenty of local businesses in the Wilson County that are successful. There are two specific bakery/donut shops that are amazing! The local boutiques are adorable, and I really like living so close to both Mt. Juliet and Lebanon.
