Restaurants in Knoxville, TN

Exploring cities is fun, but finding where to eat in one can be a challenge. Knoxville is easy. A delicious day in what once was known as The Underwear Capital of the World (because of its many textile mills) 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. For sweet-tooth focused pastries, Magpies is the place to go, its specialties including a margarita cupcake, a churro cupcake, and a chocolate cherry chewy. Litton’s is a locals’ favorite for Thunder Road burgers, Italian cream cake, and a roster of cream pies. There’s sensational soul food at Chandler’s Deli, and late-night BBQ satisfaction at Sweet P’s Barbecue and Soul House.
