I dine here probably twice a week. Lovely setting inside. Their turkey and dressing is my favorite. It's a must try if u go. Hamburgers are old fashioned with great taste. Hand patted and thick. I would definitely recommend anyone coming here for wonderful food or lunch.

They have daily specials plus their regular menu. They are locally owned. Friendly staff quick service. Good for families. Call in orders and curb service available.

Sunset has been a local favorite in Franklin for many years. Known for breakfast more than anything. Great homemade biscuits and gravy! Their homemade pies are made daily and are delicious! Make sure you save room for the pie!!! They have daily specials and a particular favorite is the BBQ sandwich with slaw! Grilled chicken salad is also very good.... More

This is a nice place as far as the environment and seating. It's cool and very cozy. The service, though, for this visit was sadly somewhat sloppy and rude. She didn't seem to like answering questions about different things on the menu. But she might have just been having a bad day so I'll probably go again to try it.

Had the sausage and egg breakfast. Was good. Service was good. They only take cash so make sure you hit an ATM.

While in Franklin, NC for 3 weeks of a great vacation; we ate at the Sunset Restaurant at least 7 occasions. Mainly lunch and dinner. The food was excellent (home cooked); food was reasonably priced and the service was great. They also do takeout orders. We plan on going back there the next time we visit Franklin. I had the...
