Why Did NBC Sports Visit Puckett’s?

Puckett's Grocery and Restaurant Inside

On the NBC Sports show “Tanguay Takes America”, Gary Tanguay makes a stop in Franklin on his way to Atlanta to cover the Super Bowl.

Gary checks out Puckett’s in downtown Franklin, because its said to be a favorite restaurant of Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick.

Belichick was born in Nashville. His father was the assistant coach at Vanderbilt, so Belichick has a soft spot for Nashville and the surrounding area.

In an interview with Titans online, Belichick says:

“I actually do get back there. I get down to Tootsies. … It’s a great town, a great atmosphere. Linda (Holliday) and I have a place in Franklin. She’s from Brentwood, so we know the area pretty well. We’re getting to know it even better. We just love the people and love the atmosphere down there. I’ve gone over to Puckett’s, it’s a great area. We love the people down there.”
