Welcome to Puckett’s! Founded in the fifties, people have been congregating at Puckett’s for over a half a century. We’ve updated a bit, added some recipes from our family and friends, and thrown in some great live music. But it’s still Puckett’s Grocery... nothing too fancy,but everything good. It’s where the locals go for real food, real people and real fun.Consider Puckett’s for private party rentals and catering needs.

Good food and times

I had lunch at Puckett and really enjoyed it it. Parking can be rough during lunch hour, however, it's worth it. The wait staff were great and friendly. I will return

Everything they do is flown in fresh and made from scratch-all dressings and even their ketchup! Try to get as much locally as possible. Very casual, friendly staff, great food.

Great casual atmosphere and great service. Delicious southern comfort food. I had the Piggy Mac which is probably as fattening as it sounds but is absolutely delicious. Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese with Pulled Pork. And you have to - at least once - try the Fried Brownie. I recommend you share it because it's a lot. Deep fried brownie... More

Fried Green Tomato BLT--Need I say more? Go get it! This country store is a perfect Southern down home place. Sweet tea is a perfect accompaniment. Love this restaurant!

I went to Puckett's for the first time and enjoyed great food and service. The restaurant was packed and there was no waiting line, they got us right in. You never know who you'll run into. At the table right next to ours was a celeb couple, football player and country singer. Apparently it's a popular place where Reba and... More

Puckett's has some of the best barbeque I have had - tender, sweet and flavorful. The squash casserole is the best I have ever had. I am a squash fan and am still trying to get the recipe for this casserole. Try it, you'll probably like it. Usually a line to get in.

Had some time to visit Franklin downtown & since we were on the square early for lunch (11:15) we choose to go to Puckett's. After finally finding a parking place in the 4th street garage we got seated quickly though the place was packed. It was a great experience even with the noise. Food was good but the fried brownie...

Puckett's has the best omelet in Franklin, and that's saying something because several places make a great omelet just on 4th Avenue. Love the "build your own" with bacon, onion, and gouda. Many people opt for the brunch buffet on Sundays. Staff keeps your coffee or iced tea refilled continuously. If you go for dinner, you can't go wrong with... More

As a Leipers Fork local we have followed Andy and Pucketts from there to Franklin and Nashville. It's one if our favorites and where we take visitors. Good good and atmosphere. If you don't want fancy, it's hard to beat.
