The Puckett’s roots go way back to the 1950s, and a little grocery store in the village of Leiper’s Fork, Tenn. Ever since then, we’ve been focused on providing friends new and old with great food and Southern hospitality. When it comes down to it, Puckett’s is a community kitchen, with live pickin’ performances just a few feet from your table. Authentic comfort food—barbecue smoked slow ‘n’ low over cherry wood, the home-cooked sides, even a few upscale dishes—is what Puckett’s aims for you to remember! Our philosophy is simple: Real Food, Real People, Real Fun.

    Some of the food arrived cold or lukewarm. Was a little slow to arrive. Especially for a Monday night. Server Maria was excellent.

    We were super bummed about our first experience at Pucketts Murfreesboro. We brought our extended family and raved about how great Pucketts is. We have been to 3 other Pucketts locations (Franklin, Nashville, and Columbia) and LOVED the food, ambiance and experience. The food in the Murfreesboro location had half the portion, was delivered cold and just didn’t taste as good. Not only that, the beer was flat and skunky. The service was so slow it took us over an hour to get our food. The band was great though! Hopefully, things improve there but until then, we will stick to the other locations.
    Puckett's MurfreesboroResponded on June 24, 2024
    Good morning! Thank you for taking the time to send us a review and let us know about your visit with Puckett's. We apologize that it was not the best experience and this not what we want for our guests. We hold our standards high and to hear that your food portions along with temper of the food was not adequate is unacceptable. If you would like to reach out to us on a private message so that we are able to dig a little dipper and help resolve this issue, we would love to hear from you. We appreciate you visiting and again for the review

    Took us 20 minutes to get waited on. They were out of pork, which is why you go to Puckett’s. Food arrived 44 minutes later and was ice cold. We sent back to kitchen and they just reheated in microwave. Fries came out limp. Had to ask for manager who comped our food, but it was definitely a bad experience with visiting guests.
    Puckett's MurfreesboroResponded on June 24, 2024
    Good afternoon Cheryl! We thank you for leaving us a review on OpenTable so that we may be able to address the issues that you had on your visit. We also apologize that your visit was so poor. We do hold our restaurant and staff to a high standard and the food and service you received that night was not up to par. Again we do apologize for the experience and do hope you come back and give us that chance to show you, who Puckett's truly is.

    We had a 10:30 reservation and arrived at 10:15 for Father's Day brunch--my husband chose Puckett's from a few options in Murfreesboro, where we were visiting our teenage son at his summer program. We got our food at 11:36. We were "warned" they were on a 45 minute wait from the time of order (yet they continued to take more tables?)--I'm not sure if the kitchen quit on them or what? During the hour-plus wait, the server (who was very nice, but what could she do?) just kept telling us how many tickets were ahead of us. I asked if we could get some biscuits or something to eat while we waited (all of our entrees came with a biscuit--maybe we could just have them early)--and she said she would have to charge us for them. I said never mind. When we finally got our food--more than an hour after we had ordered--we had to inhale it because we had to have my son back to school by noon. It certainly didn't make for a very relaxing Father's Day.
    Puckett's MurfreesboroResponded on June 23, 2024
    Good afternoon. We would like to apologize for your recent experience. We're sorry to hear you were less than satisfied here at Puckett's. We pride ourselves on our service, food and the high quality standards we maintain. We would like to make things right. If you would like to reach out to us privately or call us at the store, and speak with Nicole (GM) or Brittni (FOH) we would like to resolve this. We are working with our staff, as the kitchen is the heart of restaurant. Thank you again for leaving a review and again we apologize for y our experience with us!

    I would skip. Absent management - understaffed or poorly run kitchen. Dined Sunday for breakfast turned into lunch, since we waited 1.5 hours from order to receiving our food. We felt bad for the waitress but we never saw a manager once. The kitchen was doing one order a time, we won't return there are better options. Restaurant was never completely full and was nearly empty when we left. When the food did arrive half the items (potatoes and bacon) were cold, only thing hot were the eggs, and one order was wrong, but after that wait we could not send it back.
    Puckett's MurfreesboroResponded on June 23, 2024
    Good afternoon! We appreciate you sending in a review and informing us about your experience. This is not the Puckett's visit you should have received on Fathers Day, nor any other day. There is no excuse for a manager not being on the floor and touching the table as well. We would like a chance to make this right, if you would like to reach out to us privately or call us at the store, we would like to fix this. Thank you again for the review and we apologize for your experience.

    Went here on fathers day and had reservations at 930. We sat for maybe 10 minutes before anyone came over. We ordered the cinnamon roll skillet, but then he came back and said they were out. We waited at least an hour for our food. We were told it would "be right out" a few times....but it wasn't. Tables were being seated around us, but it was clear they had to wait just as long as we did. Eventually we found out they were short staffed in the kitchen - but had we known this initially, we never would have stayed. The food was good (except for my kids' eggs, which they did remake)...but we won't go back to chance this happening again.
    Puckett's MurfreesboroResponded on June 24, 2024
    Good morning! We wanted to first of all thank you for visiting us on Father's Day along with writing a review. Mostly, wanting to apologize as your experience on this holiday was not close to what you expected at all. This is not Puckett's reputation nor is it how we hold our standards. We sincerely apologize that the wait was long, along with the issues with the food, especially on this holiday. We would like to be able to make it right. If you would like to send us a private message so that we can further our conversation, and help make this right! Thank you again for visiting with us.

    We had 8 am reservations on Father's Day. We arrived in time. The host still had her purse on and looked extremely sleepy. We sat on time. Immediately, seen a server get upset with the host that she was double sat. There were maybe 8 tables with dinners at this time, not a full house. So they gave us another server. He was friendly by time he arrived to take our drink and food order. We ordered all at the same time by maybe 8:15 am. At 9 we have not received our food. We asked our server. He stated out of their control the kitchen is behind. We received our food at 9:05. He states the manager was on the line making the food. Seemed staffed well in the front of the house. Judging by it taking so long to make the food, back of house needs a revamp on staff.
