Knoxville TN
 
Looks like I'll be there Nov 18th and 19th for work, with my evenings open. Any decent places to eat? Anything not to miss?

Downtown or West Knox?

papalobster 11-05-2013 06:32 AM

Dunno. We have a car, so I'm not against running hither and yon.

2 bike guys that like to eat, the other doesn't drink. No bikes. No gear.

Big Ed's Pizza, Oak Ridge. Probably about 20 minutes from Knoxville and it looks like a dive bar until you see all the kids running around. It's fantastic.

I like Puleo's for Shrimp and Grits, Italian, and southern classics.

Downtown:
Cheasapeakes - Seafood
Crown and Goose - food / patio / people peeping

West Knox:
Connors - Shrimp and grits are slap yo momma.
Smokey Mountain Brewery - pub food and a micro brew.


Pizza:
Hard Knox - Mmmmmm
Central Flats and taps - across from the Time Warp Tea Room.

Hold on...... Tennessee seafood? isn't that kind of a paradox? That's kind of like looking for good seafood in WI:lol3

Thanks for the suggestions. Sure beats hitting up the boring chain places.

I know, it's weird, but it works.

My 2 favorites are Crown and Goose and Central Flats and Taps.


Hawk will be along shortly to tell you how awesome Mellow Mushroom is.

Hawks kind of dumbass isn't he?:lol3

I get enough steak up here. I tend to eat local/regional when traveling. I don't recall ever having shrimp and grits.

Connors. Best I've ever had.

BBQ:

Sweet Peas. It's a 20-30 minutes south of town, but worth the drive. Make sure to order the greens and things as a side. :deal

Dead End on southerland ave. Neat building, it used to be a gas station.

papalobster 11-05-2013 08:21 PM

I only have 2 days!:rofl
