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.

It is rare to find Mexican food that I do not like, but I think there is a big difference between good Mexican food and great Mexican food. The main difference for me is the amount of flavors and the way the spices are used — that the flavors don’t all end up tasting the same. I recently went to Pueblo Real in Franklin. Here’s my review.
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.
Henpeck Market in Franklin, TN is much more than a grocery store! Don and Jackie Gregory own the place and, there’s a gas station outside and a convenience store inside. There is also a cafe and restaurant, as well as a gift shop featuring ‘Simply Living Life’ logo items and an organic produce section too. And don’t miss the live music… Bluegrass!
If I were to rate the Wild Ginger restaurant in Cool Springs near Franklin, TN… on a scale of 1-5, I’d give it a 4.5. The atmosphere inside is both romantic — for a special date; yet sophisticated — for a business dinner. The food was to DIE for. I’ll definitely be back!
