Fox & Locke

Fox & Locke (formerly Puckett’s Grocery of Leiper’s Fork) is more than just a place to enjoy a good meal. It’s a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. With mismatched tables and chairs and an eclectic clientele of tourists, farmers, songwriters, and country music stars, it’s a restaurant serving up a dining experience unlike any other.

Fox & Locke is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and hosts live music throughout the week. Show nights are Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday with a weekly Open Mic night every Thursday. (Please note that evening shows require tickets, which can be purchased in advance at foxandlocke.com.)

In 1947, members of two prominent families in the Leiper’s Fork area, Jack Fox and Martin Locke, opened Fox & Locke General Merchandise Store. They moved their successful store into a larger building across the street in 1955. The Puckett family bought this store in 1960, renaming it “Puckett’s” and continuing to serve Leiper’s Fork and the surrounding area for decades under various owners. From general store to music venue, one thing has remained true…this place is and always has been, an important part of this charming, historic community. In 2022, the heart of the country village returned to its roots with its original name, Fox & Locke.

Leiper’s Fork is the only historic district on The Natchez Trace Parkway and is a tourist destination. The community hosts events March through October that bring folks from near and far. Leiper’s Fork once hosted Willie Nelson for an outdoor show that drew 6,000 people!
