In the center of Franklin, Puckett's is a busy place and hard to get in. Once seated though I had a good breakfast with good service. The sausage was especially good as was the coffee. The one downside is that the tables are crammed together and the one big room makes for a lot of noise.

We have eaten here for lunch many times and it is always delicious. We just tried breakfast with some friends and have already been back a second time by ourselves. I'm sorry we didn't try it sooner. The omelettes are outstanding as well as the breakfast burrito. Service is always great too. We go during the week and have never... More

I thought the food was very average...we went on the weekend and were seated outside and that was nice as it was a pleasant evening. Nothing above average or spectacular stands out. The mashed potatoes were cold!!!

Just had breakfast for the first time here. Great atmosphere reflective of Franklin and the friendliness of the area. Enjoyed a delicious breakfast of sausage, eggs and pancakes. There were many options which would have been great. Coffee was fresh and ample. The best part was our very attentive, cheerful waitress who made us feel welcome. You will love this... More

I love Puckett's. Their broad menu offers something for everyone. I tried the Piggy Mac and it was every bit as wonderful as it sounds. Pork on the bottom, smothered with Gruyere Mac & cheese on top. We visited on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and it was busy, but no wait. Our waiter was super friendly and accommodating ( we... More

I just had my second fantastic experience at Puckett's while visiting friends in the area. I had been to the one in downtown Nashville and enjoyed that one too. The location in Franklin was busy at lunchtime on a weekday, but the line moved quickly. The service was great; our server chatted about local personalities that visit the restaurant and... More

We visited both restaurants one in Franklin TN and the other in Nashville. I cannot say enough about the excellent quality of food and service! If you are looking for excellent fried chicken this restaurant has it!! It was full of flavor and cooked to perfection!
