Where to Eat in Knoxville?

Exploring cities can be fun but finding where to eat in one is difficult. A delicious day in Knoxville must begin in the Old City at Olibea, a cutting edge cafe where the biscuits are fall-apart fragile and the breakfast meat of choice is house-cured pork belly. It’s on to Litton’s for Thunder Road burgers and Italian cream cake, then sensational soul food at Chandler’s Deli, and a late-night BBQ blow-out at Sweet P’s Barbecue & Soul House.
