Our Favorites

Lunch: Mojo's Tacos 

Mojo's Tacos is our favorite dining spot in The Factory. They have amazing tacos and margaritas; we can't say enough good things about them! They have indoor seating, bar seating, and a cute sunroom area. 


Dessert: Jeni's Icecream & Five Daughters Bakery

Who doesn't love sweets?! Our favorite spots to grab yummy treats are Jeni's and Five Daughters! For cold-pressed juices, smoothies and Acai Bowls, Franklin Juice is our healthy go-to. Try the Ginger-Cayenne shots if you are battling a cold. They work! Our Nashville fans will be familiar with these stores as they are also our neighbors on 12 South.
