Backyard Burgers, located at 1015 Center Point Place in Franklin, has closed.

Google shows the restaurant has permanently closed and an employee at Backyard Burgers’ Cool Springs location confirmed that the Center Point Place location recently closed. We do not have an exact date of closure.

When we reached out to the corporate office in Nashville, we were unable to reach anyone for comment.

There are three other locations in Williamson County:

  • 1711 Galleria Blvd, Franklin
  • 5004 Maryland Way, Brentwood
  • 1425 TN-96 N, Fairview

Backyard Burgers was started in a grocery store in Cleveland, Mississippi in 1987 by “Lattie” Lattimore Michael. After the first year of opening, they expanded to Tennessee and Florida. The corporate office for Back Yard Burgers is located in Nashville.

  1. I was a frequent visitor of this location until they closed the dining room. I’m surprised they never reopened the dining room, as Zaxby’s across the street did. It’s probably not the last casualty of small businesses that can’t control their own destiny right now.

    • Sadly, I believe you are right about more closures. This was the closest location for me, and I liked it. I’ll miss it.

  2. So sorry to hear that Back Yard Burger closed. That was the Back Yard that I always used. I live just down the road close by in Forest Crossing on South Royal Oaks. Makes me sick to lose that location because it was my ver favorite hamburger and chicken sandwich place. Plus the cobblers were the real must have for me. Sometimes I’d call in and have them cook me a whole Strawberry Cobbler. They never had it anymore but the 1 piece, so I’d just order the whole cobble so I could buy it to take home. (Sometimes cooked, sometimes just still frozen to cook at home myself. Oh I’m really going to miss Our BackYard Burger!!!!

  3. You message to me is you somehow got my message twice. But I don’t see either one posted. I only sent one message beside this one.

  4. Lots of great memories there. Especially back in the 1990’s and their antique car shows and 60’s rock bands on summer Satutday nights.

  5. Back in the early 90s it was the go to place on Friday night for the best cruise in around Tennessee. Hot rods music and hula hoop competition. Robie was guy that coordinated it. I don’t remember his last name but worked hard to make sure people had fun.
