We had read about the great breakfasts and lunches but we were looking for something for the evening. Ms. Lois's is open until 7 PM.

Sides that were available were mashed potatoes, black eyed peas, green... More

We wanted to try something new in Franklin and saw this little place. We ordered lunch and it was great. We will go back if we are in the area again.

We went to Ms. Lois' restaurant because of the good reviews.

My husband and I had the country fried steak and it was awesome, with homemade pot... More

Ate there for breakfast one morning. Food was good (not great, I prefer omelets fluffier (made in omelet pan), coffee was abit too mild/bland). Service was good.
