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.

This is a great casual dining place. The pulled pork is very good as is the fried green beans appetizer. The burgers and the fried chicken looked wonderful, but I did not try them. I will definitely be going back on my next visit to Franklin.

We had plans as a family in the area. Pucketts is always a must when nearby. We went to lunch on a Saturday afternoon. We arrived thirty minutes prior (in event of wait). They don't take lunch reservations. It worked out great. We waited about twenty minutes. We had the Fried Green Tomatoes as a appetizer. It's a family favorite!... More

Great evening for my 60th birthday. We love visiting Franklin, TN and Puckett's is one of the reasons. Freak country/funk atmosphere. My favorite menu item is the veggie burger. Handmade from black beans. Even my husband likes it. I even bought a t shirt! There is a very convenient, free parking garage right across the street!

We saw this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to try it. So glad we did. Amazing food, really busy but didn't have to wait too long. Wait staff amazing, never stopped running. If heading to Franklin TN check this place out.

Country atmosphere, friendly & efficient wait staff, and the food....well, it is "down home comfort food at it's best". This is our second time at Puckett's; being from the Chicago area, we went out of our way on this trip just to eat here. There are so many delicious menu choices, but a great southern appetizer is the Fried Green... More

Food and experience was great, but our server really made it something special. Allison was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. She also caught somehow that it was my birthday and surprised us with an outstanding peach cobbler dessert complete with song. Much appreaciated!
