While in Tombstone, Cashman became a favorite among many of its now famous residents, including gunslinger Doc Holliday. According to local legend, he was eating at her restaurant one day when another customer insulted her food. Holliday pulled out his gun, aimed it at the customer, and said, "What did you say about Miss Nellie's food, mister?" "Food's delicious," the man replied, "good as I've ever tasted." Withdrawing his revolver, Holliday said, "Yep, that's what I thought you said."
