This may be a favorite in Knoxville for us. We usually do our office lunches here and the food is great. Love the burgers and fried chicken. The desserts are some of the best in Knoxville too. Can’t go wrong with Litton’s

Great lunch spot. Get here early. Have burger (I’ll go ahead and recommend the Thunder Road) and fries, take a stroll around the duck pond, then sneak home for a nap. You’re welcome.

The Burger here is ground fresh and it is really good quality. Three of us all ordered a burger and each was impressed. The only downside was the parking lot was full the night we went. That's a good sign.
