House-ground, slow-smoked and finished on the grill. Topped with mushroom gravy, served with mashed potatoes and Southern green beans
This is our first visit to Franklin and Puckett's is a must go to. The food was great. Although my ribs were on the dryer side but the BBQ sauce made it enjoyable. Not to mention our server, Doris was friendly and enjoyable to talk to.
Pucketts is such a fun place to go for great food. Upon our arrival, there was a possible fire two doors away from the restaurant. The emergency activity in the street only added to the excitement and ambience. Pucketts' staff handled the noise level (of emergency alarms) as if it was not going on. They are gracious and make the whole experience fun. The food is just southern charm on a plate! Don't miss the mac 'n cheese or the collard greens!
The food and service was awesome but the band that was performing the night we were there the main singer was obnoxious. He kept on standing on chairs and at one point put his foot on an empty table and then a group sat down!
The food (fried green beans and strawberry spinach salad) and music (Young Fables) was great!!
Music starts at 7:00pm. So make a reservation in advance of your visit. Then sit back and enjoy the show while eating southern comfort food and enjoying locally brewed beer. Prices are real reasonable. Tip the performers well.
Doris was great!
Birthday dinner for my wife and daughter. The food and service was outstanding as usual. The strawberry cobbler was excellent
We had a great time and enjoyed our food. Everything was really delicious. Two of the items we wanted were out of stock; the Pimento Cheese Bits and the Ribs. Our waiter was fantastic and very polite. The band performing was an excellent choice and had a good mix of genres. We will make Puckett’s a must do when in town.
Very good food. Wish we could have heard the singer a little bit more. Alot of talking .. hard to hear. All else great.
Food was great! Fast service & we had a wonderful waitress! Very friendly. Will go again!
Live music was good but food was very average. You can get greater quality of food from most of the other options in downtown historic Franklin. Meatloaf did not meet expectations, brisket had too much fat, and the pork BBQ was very fatty.
Food is always good and the service is excellent! Great place!
Monday nights are great because the music is a fun and lively acoustic performance, where you can still have conversation and enjoy a meal without being drowned out by sound. It's also great to just sit back and enjoy a great show. The food is also incredible, and not too pricey. The smoked meats are excellent, the chicken fried chicken is amazing, and they know how to cook to a burger made to order. The Franklin location is my favorite as there is plenty of free parking and the ambiance is the best.
Reservations at 6 and they had already run out if desserts!!
Very relaxed atmosphere. The service and food were great. We loved being able to listen to music while we ate our dinner. We will definitely be back!!!
Always enjoy Pucketts...everything from the atmosphere, food & drink and live entertainment, makes the evening enjoyable!
Glad it’s family friendly, we enjoyed it. Love live music.
It usually has good food and service. It'll be better when they more music.
We loved it
First time at the franklin downtown location
Great service and as always great food
Loved everything about this place. Not a meatloaf fan, but took server’s advice and it truly was amazing. Wings were solid and the Cinnamon Bun dessert was to die for. Highly recommend!
Jessie Ritter was fabulous, bring her back in the future
Such a fun place to go with locals or take out-of-towners. Fabulous food and fun atmosphere. Been there several times dnd it’s always a great evening. Hamburgers are excellent. Last time I tried the meatloaf and it was surprisingly wonderful (who knew meatloaf could be so good?!)
Glad we made a reservation bc it was busy on a Thursday night!

The food was very good. Our waiter was excellent. The couple who sang were wonderful.
Excellent food and service staff.
Always a great place to get a great meal. We love this place.
Puckett’s is a quaint grocer and bar. You can find live music most nights, but reservations are suggested. The food is southern bbq and fried chicken. The drinks are good. The live music is the best.
Very relaxed atmosphere. The barbecue brisket is tender and very flavorful. The fried chicken dinner was cooked perfectly. Our server was attentive, courteous, and well informed on the menu and drinks. Thank you for reminding us of what excellent service and Southern cooking can be!

Awesome atmosphere and the food and service were amazing! Would have loved to stay for the music but had other plans. Well worth visiting.
Very nice location and great staff and service. Definitely southern (Tennessee) food. BBQ mix was good. Collard greens not my thing. Pancake bread interesting.
