Super food, extremely friendly wait staff. Only negative is that it's always packed! Not a good place to go if you're watching your weight. there are healthy choices on the menu, but what everyone else is having will tempt you.

We are sitting here at 2:40 having lunch and the place is still full! Great food, great people and great service! Don’t be fooled by the small exterior! A great place to eat!

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.
