My wife and I stopped by on our way through Franklin, NC, and we both loved it. They say that Franklin is the "Gem Capitol of the World", well The Hungry Bear is the Hidden Gem of Franklin.. This was the most delightful and pleasant experience we have had in a long time. The food was fantastic, and the service was very welcoming. The Philly Cheese Steaks are absolutely to die for! We will be stopping at The Hungry Bear every time we pass through Franklin.
