In NYC or Chicago you can't swing a cat w/o hitting a place like this, here, not so much. Good stuff, good folks.

Stopped by with the boy after swim meet for lunch. Cheesesteaks with fries for both. Average cheesesteak, luckily the boy saw they put mayo on the steak before we finished the order or it would have been a train wreck. Dont bother with the cheesesteak Fries were ok. Seasoned with old bay

If you are looking for a "hole in the wall" restaurant with friendly service and great flavor, this place is for you. Welcoming environment right on the strip in Knoxville. We've been coming back for years.

This small, plain sandwich shop on the UT Cumberland Avenue commercial strip seeks to recreate a bit of Chicago, not only with the gyros at about $10 to $12 but also Chicago hot dogs (Vienna style - no ketchup) and other sandwiches.
