Upon hearing that I was travelling to Franklin, Tennessee, my friend Don, one of the officers at the justice center, recommended that I have a meal at Dotson's, which is located at 99 East Main Street in Franklin. It was about a ten minute drive from where I was staying in Cool Springs, and it was worth the short drive. It is what Nashvillians call a "meat and three," which means it is an establishment serving good southern country food. I was fortunate to have stopped there on meatloaf day, so I had meatloaf, mashed potatoes, fried okra and iced tea. Lunch was about $15.00 including tip, and the food and service were excellent. I looked the place up online before I went, and I found this descriptive web page at Hollyeats.com.
