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.

“Wonderful food in downtown Franklin”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

Grabbed a bite before attending a Sheryl Crow concert at the Franklin Theatre and would definitely eat here again. I tried the ribs and loved them. Great comfort food in a homey sitting.

“Cracker Barrel for adults”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Puckett's in Franklin is great. We stopped in recently for a dinner, with entertainment by Pat McLaughlin, and then breakfast with friends a few days later. Service was friendly and timely on both visits. Southern classic dishes, i.e.; fired green tomatoes, grits, fried chicken, chicken fried steak, pork chops, pulled pork, etc. Everything we tried was just right. The atmosphere is very casual and eclectic, similar to an old country grocery. They have music entertainment most nights; check their website for schedule and cover charge; often there is no cover charge. If you are visiting downtown Franklin, Puckett's is a MUST.

“Spring Break getaway”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

Called ahead for reservations and got got in traffic. Called to tell them we would be late and they told us not to worry they would hold us a spot and they sure did. No wait and the food was delicious!! they give you plenty to eat. I had BBQ and it was delicious. Others had the fish and said it was good too. Loved the 3 different sauces to choose from. The sweet tasting one was my favorite. Loved the live music as well.

“Great atmosphere with live music, good food, and friendly service”
Reviewed May 31, 2014

Looking for some delicious southern style food with entertainment and atmosphere? Puckett's ticks all the boxes. The service was prompt despite a full house. When the food came, my entire party was pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity. The fried green tomatoes were probably the best I have had in a very long time, and the BBQ was delicious as well. I would highly recommend a visit.

Be sure to make reservations to ensure that you get a seat to enjoy the music and food that Puckett's has to offer. Don't forget the sweet tea, it's delicious!
