If you’re looking for comfort food, look no further than Franklin, Tennessee. Here, Southern cuisine is as plentiful as the portions that are served at many area restaurants.

Puckett's Grocery & Restaurant

Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant got its start as a culinary destination 10 years ago in Leipers Fork, and owner Andy Marshall added a similar eatery on Fourth Avenue South in downtown Franklin in 2005 and another in downtown Nashville in 2010.

“We serve great food, and the residents of both Leipers Fork and Franklin really support us,” Marshall says. “We have a menu filled with Southern favorites, including barbecue and ribs that the kitchen staff hickory smokes itself.”

Puckett’s serves breakfast, lunch and dinner at both locations and can seat 70 customers in Leiper's Fork and 110 in Franklin. “We make all of our breads and desserts from scratch at Puckett’s,” Marshall adds. “And our lunch and dinner menu include favorites such as smoked bologna, fried catfish and mushroom-Swiss hamburgers.”
