Many country music fans come to Nashville just to have lunch at Larry's Country Diner, but they search for the eatery in vain. They've seen "Larry's Country Diner" on RFD-TV and assume it's a real location, but, for the present time, Larry's only exists on the studio set of the popular show, which celebrated its milestone 100th episode on June 5.
