Please stay in contact and in touch through Facebook and our Website,, to follow our next steps, catering services, and new opportunities for you to take part of our dishes and sauces! You are all forever a part of our hearts, and we thank you for allowing us to be a part of yours!

We will see you all soon!

Best Regards,

There is no word yet on whether they plan to open at a new location, but they still have a Santa Fe, Tennessee location.

Moving to the area after Hurricane Katrina. Papa Boudreaux’s brought the missing taste of New Orleans to Santa Fe, Tennessee. And then later his sons opened a location in downtown Franklin.

It was ten years ago, Papa CJ opened the Santa Fe location. Papa is the roots of the New Orleans heritage. He was born there and later moved to Tennessee. Guy began working alongside and playing with his dad’s recipes creating renditions that captured the family recipes, New Orleans staples, and flavors that would capture a variety of bold and delicious flavors for just about anyone.

Papa Boudreaux’s opened in Franklin in 2011, and Guy continued to develop and add to the menu and cuisines. Guy, Brad, and Erin ran and operated the Franklin location and later that year became sole owners and proprietors of the Franklin establishment.

Last summer, the restaurant changed its name from Papa Boudreaux’s to Boudreaux Brothers and had a grand reopening.
