The Bunganut Pig in Franklin has been largely overlooked by the nouveau riche of Franklin. It's a bit of an ol' boys joint. It certainly doesn't follow the new trends of serving "real food" from local farmers. They serve fried bologna wedges.
However, the in-laws are in town and we were on the hunt for local fried pickles. My fried pickle post has caused all kinds of non-organic cravings in my female readership, my mother-in-law not excluded. So, we decided to hit the Bunganut, and I was so happy we did.
Other than the order of fried pickles, which are some of my favorite classicly-fried pickles with straight-forward ranch dipping sauce, our lunch was highly enjoyable and healthy! We all order the special of the day: chicken salad stuffed tomotoes. The children enjoyed playing corn-hole while we awaited our food. A perfectly southern afternoon in Franklin, Tennessee.
