Hometown Cagr is a great place to enjoy all of the traditional southern food options, and breakfast and brunch selections as well!

City Lunch Cafe is Franklinton's #1 place to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and brunch! While many of businesses have started to grow in this venue, this is the only one that has actually taken roots and stayed for years. We know there are many other selections when you want a simple meal such as burger and fries, or a chili dog, but you can trust us when we say that they're all made to perfection here. This is family owned establishment that shares many family values, so we think that they fit perfectly here in the South. We hope that you try them out this week!

Tasty Snack

3299 US 1 Hwy, Franklinton, NC 27525
(919) 494-5900
Tasty Snack is offering...tasty snacks to Franklinton! This is a tiny, quaint establishment that is only capable of seating a couple of people at a time, so count on getting carry out when you come here. This place is called on Sunday, though, so try to work your schedule around that or expect some disappointment. The chicken is cooked perfectly here...where else can you enjoy fried chicken that looks like a true KFC commercial? The corn bread here is deep fried, and that's a new way to enjoy that sweet treat. It's also only a cash only establishment.

Chen’s Kitchen

3392 US 1 Hwy, Franklinton, NC 27525
(919) 494-8103
Chen's Kitchen is a Chinese restaurant in Franklinton. This place gets rave reviews from Chinese food lovers, and newbies alike. Pepper Steak, Hot and Spicy Chicken, Lo Mein, and General Tso's are the clear winners when it comes to dinner selections. We love that the friendly owners have stories to tell, it really adds a layer of authenticity to your experience here. Some might comment that it's a hole in the wall, but usually all of the very best places are. Forget about the exterior appearance, make your way indoors and enjoy some of the best Chinese in the area.

MB’s Tasty Pastries

3900 Burlington Mill Rd, Franklin, NC 27525
(919) 600-9601
MB's Tasty Pastries is a bakery with a ton to offer. While we're used to the bakeries that strictly serve up sweets to their patrons, we're infatuated with this bakery because they specialize in savory pastries, or pasties. However, that doesn't mean that they're not killing the pie game, because they certainly are. We love their mini pies, as they make us feel a little bit better about consuming fried pastry treats filled with sugar. They have weird hours here, so be sure to do some research before you step in. We know you're going to love the famous apple pie.
