This Meat and Three has some of the best home cooking I have ever eaten. They are known for their fried chicken, but they don't serve it on Friday or Sunday, opting for catfish instead on those days. But they also have outstanding pork chops, meat loaf, Italian noodles, hot chicken, and other main dishes that you should try if... More

Great place for lunch or dinner. This is a Meat and Three that uses fresh ingredients and made from scratch dishes. Multiple main dishes daily with side choices galore. Fried chicken is the bomb. The staff is friendly and helpful. Large portions, and great value.

Good fried chicken, good fried okra, bad: potatoes, canned green beans, flat greasy corn bread, paper plates, plastic utensils, horrid mushed up banana pudding. And the hot chicken sauce( thank goodness we only got a sample) gave us an Allergic reaction and tasted very odd. I don't commonly write bad reviews but have to warn you.

I saw the reviews on Trip Advisor and went to try Cool Cafe. It's in a strip shopping center. Their menu is what's known in TN as "meat and three" where you stand in a line and pick out what you want. I got the salad instead. The food was very good....very fresh. I thought for about $10 the salad... More

Good fried chicken & veggies; great banana pudding! Good cornbread; not full of sugar which is wonderful. Save room for dessert! Fast service; you will leave full so wear comfortable clothes.

We decided to go to the cool cafe in search of good fried chicken and were definitely not disappointed. However, the highlight of the meal was the wonderful banana pudding.

The food is so flavorful and huge portions! Pick a serving of fried chicken or meatloaf then add a couple of your favorite hot veggies and a salad and for under 10.00 you have an amazing lunch! Much better than fast food, any day!!! Don't forget the peach cobbler. Yum!!!

I was visiting Franklin to see the Carter House and we stopped here for dinner based on the reviews. First off, this is a café and you get your tray, choose your meat and sides and fill your own drink. We got here late about 7:30 and I think they close at 8. Anyway, plenty of food remaining. I got... More
