I live in north Alabama, so finding Sal's was just a chance meeting. We had been on the road all day chasing the Solar Eclipse and ran into heavy traffic as we were making our way out of Nashville. We decided to let some of the traffic spill out and happened into Sal's Family Restaurant. The restaurant is located in a strip mall they share with other stores and a big grocery chain store. When we arrived, it was clear the restaurant was the haunt of a large party of parents and their children (who were very well behaved) and what appeared to be a small group of 20-30 somethings who were enjoying an outing together. The wait staff were friendly and helpful and offered up a few suggestions for my Dad who was struggling with some dental problems and chewing was painful. We both opted for spaghetti and were both impressed. The sauce was delicious and the pasta was cooked well, but not overcooked. We had a nice chat with one of the staff members who was curious about our experience with the Eclipse and that chat was nice and rare these days. Sal's is clearly a family restaurant in the truest sense of the word and if I am ever in the area, I will make a special effort to visit again.

Pizza was tremendous, service was excellent, ambience was casual and unpretentious. I'll be going back again. And again.

Having been raised not too far from NYC and as a self-confessed pizza snob, this is by far the best pizza in Franklin. (People who believe Mellow Mushroom has great pizza have no idea what good pizza tastes like).

I don't know why other reviewers are so down on Sal's. They must expect pizza to taste like Pizza Hut or something.

It can be a bit pricey, but so can any good pie made from scratch. Great quality, great taste, friendly staff. It can get really crowded and packed on weekend nights. On those nights, it can take up to 45 min for pickup, even longer for delivery. So keep that in mind while ordering on weekend nights and plan accordingly.

They have great, affordable weekday lunch specials too.

I initially went to Sal's for pizza and their pizza is great. The crust is crisp and the ingredients are fresh and real. I tasted the Italian food and now I am addicted to Sal's meat balls. A house salad and an order of meat balls is my perfect dish at Sal's. The meat balls have the kind of flavor that takes many hours of preparation and cooking. Real Italian!
