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
walking tour will include
history along the
way, including photos of Franklin
restaurants from the past.
We mix it up
each tour, choosing 6 eateries from among
Grocery & Restaurant, Merridee’s Breadbasket,
IveyCake, 55 South, Puckett's Boathouse, Papa Boudreaux's

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."
