Whenever we visit Franklin, our to go place is Sunset Restaurant. Not only is the food delicious, everyone who works there is so friendly. We especially love the breakfasts. Their homemade cinnamon rolls will melt in you mouth and their sausage is the best I've ever eaten. The prices are very reasonable too.

The Sunset restaurant is popular with locals and tourists. I haven't been there for a long time so wanted to give it another try. I ordered meatloaf, greens and mashed potatoes. The meatloaf was good as well as the greens. The cornbread was not tasty. My friend ordered spaghetti with meat sauce. It was very watery and not at all... More

Located a short drive out of town is the sunset restaurant. Just off the road and I mean just feet off the road. Parking can some what of a problem because they can fill up quick. Breakfast and lunch is always packed but they do move people quickly. The menu is what I call plain food. Everyday items you would... More

When all the locals are here and you have to wait for a breakfast table - well you know it's a great place. The southern breakfast was absolutely delicious at a very frugal price. We had children with us and the staff was helpful and friendly with our small ones too.

After mining for Gems, we stopped at the local gas station to use a restroom. The lady at the counter suggested The Sunset when we asked for a local place to eat. We drove and were all craving a hamburger. Good home cooked, not frozen, as the shape was irregular like at home. So full but the PIE looked yummy... More

The Sunset Restaurant is a quaint little hometown restaurant that offers daily specials along with a full menu. On Friday they offer turkey and dressing (just like your mama used to make) along with a choice of 2 vegetables. A good place to eat in Franklin, North Carolina.

I have to go there as often as possible whenever I am in Franklin. The food is old-fashioned home cooking. I've never had a bad meal there. It's always busy at mealtime, because the locals eat there a lot. Their pies are excellent, especially the strawberry pie. Don't miss it.

We have eaten at the Sunset Restaurant many times over the 30+ years we have been visiting the Franklin area. The food is always great and the service and friendly atmosphere makes the visit more like being at home. We eat breakfast usually but this week we tried the dinner. I can't say enough good things about the food. I... More

We went for breakfast at this little local restaurant. I have to say I think this was one of my favorite restaurants on this trip. The service was great, the food was very good, the biscuits were homemade. We really enjoyed our meal here.

Sunset is a very family friendly little restaurant that is frequented by both visitors and locals alike. The food comes out quickly and has been very good every time I've been. They have delicious hamburgers and great strawberry pie (seasonally). They are always a destination for lunch or breakfast whenever I'm in Franklin.
