Puckett's breakfast options range from traditional to creative, with a buffet on the weekends

Puckett’s Now Serving Breakfast in Pigeon Forge, Seeking Help in Naming Prized Smoker

Puckett’s Gro. & Restaurant, the Parkway’s newest eatery, launched its daily breakfast service on October 1, offering an authentic taste of Tennessee to earlybird guests for the first time since its grand opening last month.

Bubba's Eggs Benedict is a popular breakfast choice.

The restaurant’s menu — centered around low n’ slow-smoked barbecue — gives morning diners a taste of its signature flavors, with skillet-served options like smoked brisket hash and sweet potato pancakes layered with pulled pork and fried apples, breakfast platters, burritos and more, seven days a week from 7 to 11 a.m. 

A breakfast buffet is offered on the weekends from 7  to 11 a.m., with an all-you-can-eat selection of breakfast and lunch items like pancakes, bacon and sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy, hash browns, grits, a build-your-own omelet station, and more. The cost is $13.99 for adults and $6.99 for children ages 12 and under.

Puckett’s also began a contest today to name its smoker, a tradition the family-owned restaurant has upheld since its first location opened in 2004 in downtown Franklin. The Pigeon Forge smoker will join the well-named crew that includes Jolene (Franklin), Hog Father (Nashville), Cherry Underwood (Columbia), Ruby (Chattanooga) and Uncle Dave Bacon (Murfreesboro.)

Entries will be accepted on Puckett’s Facebook and Instagram through October 17. Andy Marshall, CEO of A. Marshall Hospitality and owner of Puckett’s, will select his top three favorites which will be put to a public vote later this month.

Puckett’s is located at 2480 Parkway in Pigeon Forge, serving Southern staples, home-cooked sides and desserts with a dose of down-home hospitality. The restaurant features live music performances on Friday and Saturday evenings. Click here to see who’s scheduled to take the stage.
