They have very good food, in fact they were featured on television on the show diner and dines. The place look like one of those old fashion curb, when the hostess rollerskates to your car. They don't rollerskate, but the service is still good.

It is a blast from the past. You drive in, yes...I said drive in....place your order and they bring it to your car. We have patronized this establishment for years. Hands down, the best pizza (and onion rings) in Knoxville. They have a large menu from burgers, milkshakes, salads, and so much more. If your in the area, drive in... More

This is about what I've come to expect anytime somebody says "I saw it on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dines". It was in a BAD part of town. I was greeted by a car hop telling me I had to move my car (if you eat inside you have to park in the back). Then there's only enough seating inside for... More

Great pizza toppings and it really is a good pizza. But SUPER greasy. Very reasonable prices. Get a size larger than you are used to. The sizes reflect 1960 sizes, not 21st century sizes. Call ahead to save on wait time. Back in the day this was THE part of town to live in and this is a staple from... More

We went here after we saw an episode of Diners Drive ins and Dives. Best ravioli we have ever eaten! Onion rings were amazing and the pizza of course was great too!! It's a little out of the way of down town but worth the 10 minute drive!!

I had long wanted to visit this place since triple D reviewed it. I had the veal parmigiana and wife had the lasagna. Very average food. Veal was a ground processed patty. The onion rings were tasty. There is only a small counter to eat at inside, most people eat in their cars. Guess I can't take Guy's word every... More

This place was extremely busy but they were very attentive to us as we set inside to eat. Best pizza in town hands down ! It had been a while since I have been here but it was so worth the wait!

Saw this years ago on Triple D. Very good food. Large portions. Just be aware that there is limited seating inside. It is mostly a drive in restaurant.

Love this place. The absolute best pizza in Knoxville. The onion rings and the spaghetti is very delicious. We have been eating there since the sixties and I will continue to eat there until they close or I die. I would recommend the Pizza Palace to anyone who loves pizza, spaghetti and salad.

Thank Geraldine A
