Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant, Franklin, Tennessee


Greg and I recently visited Historic Franklin, Tennessee, which we love.  Franklin has had several national awards and recognition including "Top 10 Best Small Town" (Southern Living Magazine) and "Top 5 Most Beautiful City in the Nation" (Rand McNally).

A highlight for us while there was having lunch at Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant which was highly recommended to us by a woman at a local visitor's center. We'd heard elsewhere that it was the best restaurant in the area.

To make it short and to the point:

-The food was great. (Greg had a pork barbeque sandwich and fries, and I had a grilled cheese sandwich and sweet potato fries which I'd never had before-good menu choice! Yum!)

-Our waiter (who is also an accomplished artist) was personable and accommodating.

-The decor was interesting with a country/music theme.

-We enjoyed country background music as we ate.  (There are live country music performances for most of the dinner meals.)

For more detailed information and to see the complete menu, please visit their web site:

120 4th Avenue South
Franklin, TN 37064
(615) 794-5527

Puckett's also caters, has carry-outs, and can accommodate private parties, weddings, etc.

Just an aside, but an important one-The photo near the top of this blog post was taken by someone whose name I don't even know.  I was just standing out in front of Puckett's, getting ready to take a picture when a passer-by asked me if he could take my picture in front of the restaurant.  This man's kindness is just one of many instances that Greg and I have both encountered in both Franklin and the surrounding areas.  Other people have told us that they had experienced the same types of things-that most people in that area go out of their way to be helpful and friendly.  It makes you feel wonderful to be around people like that.  It's like being in the middle of a feel-good movie that you wish would never end!  What an example they set!

                      Happy Valentine's Day! Love,Greg and Becky  (Photo by Jeffrey.)

Positive thought: Kindness-pass it on!
Thanks for visiting!  Until next time (Sunday, February 19), Becky
