I recently ate at Litton’s with my family. Burgers were great as always. All the staff was friendly and checked on us, refilled drinks, and brought food quickly. The kids meal is huge.

Based on Trip Advisor tried this restaurant. The burgers we're good but not best. Thought the menu was limited. Baked goods we're excellent, but again limited selection.

This institution in Fountain City is a solid palce for basic food. The menu is full of burgers, fried chicken and such. The service is friendly as fits a family local place. The real attraction is the desserts. Wonderful and worth the trip. Go early...More

To be honest, many locals rave about this place. Other than the desserts I truly don't understand why. The burger is average. The food isn't anything special. There is usually a wait and it's a bit pricey. Also, I've personally seen the owner be a...More

Great place to get a glimpse of the history of north Knoxville. GREAT, and I do mean GREAT burgers, onion rings, and desserts. Try the Thunder Road... Very casual...and be sure to take a look at the heart-shaped pond across the road!

Maybe I have high standards when it comes to burgers, but they are Not cooked to order. Essentially the burger tastes like a jazzed up McDonalds burger. I won't ever get a burger from here again. There's a lot of other better options in Knoxville...More

They have the table space, but I would call them several days ahead of time (at 8656889429) to make sure they could handle your group at the time you were planning on being there. We have had a group of 15 and had no... More

Salads, white beans, potatoes big enough to make a meal on, and bun-less burgers are all suggestions that we believe you will find to make your meal gluten free. Sweet potatoes and cream toppings will definitely top the... More
