Located in a part of Knoxville known as Fountain City, Litton’s is a busy place at lunch time. The day we lunched there we followed the governor of Tennessee’s entourage, yet still we were treated like old friends. There is a meat market and produce racks, but the main part of the building is a sit-down place for burgers.

The burgers are large and offered in several variations. We tried the Thunder Road cheeseburger (pimento cheese, grilled onion and bacon), while our companions had the Cheeseburger Special (smokey Cheddar, lettuce and tomato and raw onion) and a good fried fish sandwich. Continue reading

Located in a part of Knoxville known as Fountain City, Litton’s is a busy place at lunch time. The day we lunched there we followed the governor of Tennessee’s entourage, yet still we were treated like old friends.

The burgers are large and offered in several variations. We tried the Thunder Road cheeseburger (pimento cheese, grilled onion and bacon), while our companions had the Cheeseburger Special (smokey Cheddar, lettuce and tomato and raw onion) and a good fried fish sandwich. My burger had a LOT of the strong-flavored pimento cheese, so much in fact that I removed most of it, leaving just enough to allow the flavor of the meat to dominate. The smokey Cheddar on the other burgers seemed to blend well with the flavor of the meat.

The onion rings and french fries were hot and fresh. A gentleman at the next table ordered a chili dog. As it arrived we were amazed at the huge plateful of chili, which totally covered the dog. Our pieces of red velvet cake and key lime pie, while both good, were simply “over the top” after consuming our huge burgers!

All in all, Litton’s is a great place to enjoy a real American burger in a comfortable and clean environment. It is just a couple of miles off I-75 and 640 on the north side of the city.

We wanted to try these beautiful desserts, so we ordered two to share between the four of us. Even that was too much. They are very good, but on top of the huge burgers this was too much. Next time we may have dessert first, and then share a burger!
