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.

Had several options to choose from but limited time due to conference obligations. We chose Puckett's and was thoroughly pleased. We love BBQ but didn't want to have food coma the rest of the afternoon. So we both decided upon the BBQ Brisket Salad. Best of both worlds...greens and meat. We... read more

Quick lunch in quaint downtown in a local legend. Southern cooking meat & 3 kinda place with authentic homemade sides. Big crowd, former grocery with a few remaining grocery items. Full liquor bar and craft beer. Live entertainment at night. Cobbler looked great. Full menu and sides. BBQ and roasts and fried fish. Great price and locals eat here.

Food was good, generous servings, moderately priced, with very good service. Lots of choices of country-style fixins. Our waitress was first-rate.

This is a busy place in downtown Franklin. It is a combination grocery store and restaurant with store patrons sometimes roaming about the shelves next to people sitting at tables eating lunch. As long as you don't mind a bit of noise and craziness, it is a fun place with good food. We were a fairly large group for lunch... More

This is a must-see place when you come to Franklin. The restaurant is also a grocery and a music venue. Somehow they cram it all in. My wife and I go there 2-3 times a month. The BBQ is famous all over TN but they also have great salads, sandwiches, and that Middle Tennessee favorite: meat and three (or two,... More

one of the best flat grill hamburgers anywhere but the real star is the live music. On open mic Thursday, you might see Wyona Jude or Justin Timberlake drop by for a song or two. great local casual atmosphere in beautiful Leipers Fork. A definite Nashville bucket list location.

Parked across the street in the garage (6' 8" for you RVer's). Will, our server was fast, friendly and conversant. Mrs did the pulled pork platter, a big serving, baked beans, sweet potato fries and Cole slaw, Mr had the Pig'Mac in a 6" skillet. Both were swell and filling. Half 'n Half sweet tea was great. That's my story... More

Visiting from Montana and in the midst of a very rainy day, we decided to try Puckett's and it was our best decision of the day. Very busy at noon, so had to wait for a table for about 10 minutes. Server was friendly and informative about the local area. The bbq pork was excellent and serving size was filling.... More
