Franklin, Virginia has a habit of mixing the antique traditions with cutting edge practices. And the munch factories seem to fit the pattern. Virginia food factories are certain to give you some heartburn. You will probably eat too much oysters, clams and peanuts while here. Don’t worry. It will be worth it.
There have been a deluge of gargantuan, fruitful moves forward for the local cuisine scene over the last few years. Restaurant entrepreneurs are surely making their mark. Yet, too many bon vivants from Nashville have gotten passive and they seem unaware of what they can be tasting. Who truly cares though?
Random opinions from away are generally kooky anyways. And the ecstatic locavores here are already over it. Each of these restaurants will keep the entire clan coming back for seconds, whether boys and girls want Hawaiian, Soul Food or Middle Eastern or even something offbeat tonight.
Chefs totally slay here by using wallet-busting organic veggies from the Commonwealth and locally sourced oysters, tomatoes and blue crabs in their appetizers, mains and desserts. We heart the antique, therefore many of the eateries on this list use the same proven menus since they opened. There are also a select bunch with hidden menu items packed with clams and peanuts which you may not realize even existed.
We would not waste any of your time and have picked the most honest temples of feasting in the Mother of Presidents. After a single meal in Franklin, Virginia, you will be hooked by this orgasmic nourishment forever.
