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?

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.

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

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?

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.

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