Barbara’s Homecookin’ is located just off Hillsboro Road on Old Hillsboro Road in the Grassland area of Franklin. It’s so good it almost tastes like your Mama made it but I assure you it has been made by the owner, Barbara Thomas, a Southern Mississippi transplant, who cooks up some of the best comfort food around.
We went to the Franklin Mercantile Deli — also called the Merc — for the first time. The owners, Graeme and Corrie Asch, take as much pride in making you feel welcome there as they do in cooking up great food with fresh ingredients at great prices. Here’s my detailed review of the Franklin Mercantile Deli.
