Knoxville, Tennessee

Beginning as a rowdy town of taverns, smithies, and sawmills supplying riverboats and homesteaders heading West, Knoxville survived the Civil War and the Great Depression. Founded in 1792 at the headwaters of the Tennessee River, and now all grown up, the city is a jumping-off point for campers, fishermen and tourists visiting Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Cherokee National Forest, and various “Great Lakes of the South.” It’s also famous for author James Agee, pink marble quarries, the University of Tennessee, Oak Ridge Laboratories, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. It’s where Mountain Dew was first sipped and Bush’s Baked Beans first baked. Knoxville cooks honor its Southern locale with classics such as fried chicken, hushpuppies, grits and gravy. Over 1000 restaurants, roadhouses, grills, delis, drive-ins, family cafes, chains, brewpubs, and pizza joints dish up food daily. From fine dining menus, barbecue, freshwater fish; Italian, French bistro or Mexican fare; to hawg back potatoes, burgers, steaks, and Petro’s Chili & Chips, the menu is almost unlimited.
