Rob and Shanel Robinson purchased Puckett’s Leiper’s Fork in 2008 to preserve authentic Puckett’s food and music. This location is listed on The National Historic Registry. “We put the love in everyday”, Rob shared about the website. “We wanted to expand the live music and we now have live music almost every day. We brought studio quality sound to a vintage country store. It’s a great place to slow down, hear incredible music and eat award-winning burgers and barbeque.”
