Description: 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.

“Best fried chicken-no contest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

Used Trip Advisor to find a restaurant while traveling , this was #1 and we soon learned why! Grocery store setting with 10-12 tables. Chicken came out crispy and HOT and stayed hot until the last bite and we were sorry it was the last bite! Next door to a great bakery-perfect!

“Superb Spot for a Late Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

We stopped at Puckett's for lunch after visiting a few of the historic houses in Franklin. The food was outstanding, the waitress was friendly and the prices were moderate. Come hungry because the portions are very generous. We'll be back the next time we're in the Nashville area.

“Really good food. Nice, friendly service. Reasonable prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Our first stop was the Mellow Mushroom (a pizza place in Franklin) but they wanted us to wait 35 minutes before a seat would be available so we decided to move on. Right around the corner we found Puckett's and we were so happy we did. The manager met us at the door. He was so friendly and nice. The hostess seated us right away even though the place was packed. The waiter was efficient and friendly. The food was very good. The portion sizes were generous and the prices were reasonable. The menu was varied. I wouldn't mind stopping by Puckett's again so I could try some of their other menu items. We were there in the late afternoon, but I understand they have live music on the weekend nights but you need a reservation. The day we were there, the hostess told me the evening show was sold out. So you might want to make reservations well in advance if you want dinner with live music.

“Best BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 14, 2013

I can not wait to go back to this place. We were a large group and the service was just wonderful. I enjoyed the pulled chicken, coleslaw, backed beans and potato salad. The wait staff spilled several drinks on a friend of mine, and the manager immediately comped the meal. Any foodie will enjoy this Southern restaurant.
