A yummy selection from Grays on MainSometimes the manager is as good as the food at Puckett'sSouthern Style Food Tours

Our food tour was recently mentioned in Paula Deen's magazine:

"If you really want to get a taste of what Franklin has to offer, you can take a food tour with Franklin on Foot. You'll enjoy popular dishes at six local restaurants on the 3-hour walking tour, and you'll learn about the history of Franklin. It's fun, educational, and a great way to experience multiple eateries when you can't pick just one." May/June 2014

Downtown Franklin is home to more than 25 locally-owned and operated restaurants,  serving everything from BBQ sliders and fried green tomatoes to oysters and gumbo. We invite you to savor the flavors of Franklin on our Southern Style food tours.

 

Led by one of Franklin on Foot's guides, the Southern staples will come with a bit of background on each morsel and the five-block walking tour will include some history along the way, including photos of Franklin restaurants from the past.

We mix it up each tour, choosing 6 eateries from among Puckett’s Grocery & Restaurant, Merridee’s Breadbasket, IveyCake, 55 South, Puckett's Boathouse, Papa Boudreaux's Cajun Cafe, Franklin Mercantile Deli and Grays on Main. All selections are always made fresh for our group and you'll enjoy meeting each restaurant's chef or proprietor.

Here's a review from Tripadvisor.com: "My wife and I had relatives in town from Birmingham. They love  history and we thought this would be a good way to let them learn some history and eat some great food. We were not disappointed. The 3-hour tour took us to six great restaurants in Historic Franklin. We sampled some great food. No one will need dinner tonight. Great idea for out of town visitors. Margie knows her history and is a GREAT tour guide."
