We go here anytime we can for breakfast. Very casual diner with solid, home-cooked food. Exactly what you'd expect for an old-fashioned diner. Pancakes are HUGE and the over-easy eggs are always perfect. Love the home fries, too.

As my wife and I entered the restaurant, we were immediately acknowledged by our friendly server and seated. I had read the reviews about the hamburgers and those reviews were spot on. Best tasting hamburger I've had in a long while. It had just the...More

This is a very typical average run-of-the-mill diner. It’s small, there’s an awkward standing-only waiting area near the bathrooms by people trying to eat their meal, and the food is fine. When I read the reviews before going, my expectations were set too high and...More

On our way home to Alabama from upstate New York, we were road-weary travelers looking for a decent lunch. Boy, did we ever find it! I had the 'Way burger and the wife a patty melt and neither disappointed. In true diner style, the sammies...More

I'm glad you have had such great meals at Nick and Jay's. That wasn't my experience, and I wrote an honest review of my and my husband's meal. I didn't really see a question in your comment. I did express surprise about the... More

Good for you to comment on the review that gave a ridiculous rating that in no way was the fault of the owners. You are a great customer and I will go out of my way to visit this restaurant the next time I am in Knoxville.
