We visited the quaint town of Franklin on a recent trip to Nashville. We had lunch at Puckett's Grocery and were very impressed. The pulled pork was excellent and the sauces were all great. The prices were in line with similar restaurants. Our only complaint is the restaurant is extremely busy and they only have two washrooms, one for men... More

The original Puckett's is in Leiper's Fork, TN. It is an old fashioned grocery store with restaurant. Once a farming community, Leiper's Fork is now home to celebrities of all types and genres and all of them head to Puckett's at some point. It is lot of fun to visit the original store, however, for a quick lunch or a... More

We really enjoyed our meal and the entertainment was great. A must go place to get the feel of Franklin and Music City With the feel of an old time grocery store restaurant and good food and drink combined with a great band you can't go wrong. Really enjoyed the rotisserie chicken. This is a better venue than the Nashville... More

Puckett's has a great location if your shopping downtown Franklin. There are tables available outside also. Can be crowded due to reputation. Food is fair there or I just haven't ordered the right thing over the years. Not my favorite downtown spot, but don't mind going there.

We have been to Puckett's many times on the weekends. They have entertainment on the stage on Friday and Saturday nights. The food is not fancy, but it is reasonable and good. You almost always must have reservations on the weekends and usually have to make them well in advance.

Ask some locals about the best food and town and without hesitation they told us to check out puckett's. The food is amazing; I had some pulled pork that was beyond description. Great prices as well; my mother and I had lunch for 22 dollars and that included a beer for myself.

This place has become a land mark in Franklin but the food is average and a little over priced. There are better places in the area.

If I could, I'd give the servers 10 stars! Excellent food, big portions, great quality and price. We go about once a week and it just keeps getting better! Highly recommend!!!

Puckett's Grocery and Restaurant is an institution in downtown Franklin with fantastic food, great libations and sweet hospitality from staff and even other patrons. The fried chicken is as good as Mom made and well worth the few extra minutes it takes to make it when you order it...not a meal that's been sitting around waiting on whoever shows up... More
