Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast
Description: 50'S & 60's Diner serving gourmet hamburgers, hot dogs, soups, salads and other great American dishes. Our restaurant also includes an old-fashioned soda fountain featuring hand dipped ice cream sundaes and hand-made milkshakes. Our building served as a car dealership in the 40's, 50's and 60's. Thus its name "Motor Co. Grill".

Nice little place in the heart of Franklin. My wife had a patty melt and I ordered a good old fashion cheese burger. On a HOT July afternoon it was refreshing that icy cold water melon was available as a side. with neat stuff on the walls and the music going it really does take you back in time.

We chose to eat at this restaurant because we were in Franklin and had our dog with us. They allow dogs in there patio setting area. They will bring water for your dog and food (for a small price) right to your table. I love the fact that they are so accommodating to people and there pets. They have some really unique items on there menu as well so try something different if your up for it like the Hawaiian BBQ Burger, it has Cole slaw, BBQ sauce and pineapple an odd combination but good never the less. The food is good and the service is great.

The wait staff and manager were very accomodating and attentive. Food was very good and a good selection of craft beers. We were traveling with our two small poodles and ate outside. The restaurant provided water for the dogs and even has a small dog menu. Atmosphere inside the restaurant is reminiscent of a 60's diner.

The Motor Company Grill is a very friendly restaurant in Franklin. They offer dining inside or outside on the patio. Servers are (generally) pleasant and helpful. We tend to go there Sundays after church, but they are often busiest then. In any case, try their chicken soup. I rarely order any chicken dish in a restaurant, but I frequently make an exception for this delicious soup. Their half-a-sandwich and cup of soup offering is not expensive, but delicious. I also like the grilled cheese sandwich (ask for cheddar, not American) with a cup of chili. The 50s atmosphere is pleasant for an old geezer, too. Enough -- I am getting hungry already just writing this.
