Decent Prime Rib

I had a king cut prime rib and it was pretty good. The menu is diverse which scared me, but in the end we were all pleasantly surprised as to how good it was. The service is good and attentive. Overall pretty good.

Even with a party of 12, there was no wait for a table. Entrees were half-price when we ordered, so price overall was good; service was excellent. Based on what I tasted, I would rate food as good--not outstanding.

Restaurant did not have many cars around it @ 1 pm so that should had been a sign. Wife and I ordered from lunch menu. The food came in timely manner but my wife's salad lacked some key ingredients & the shrimp on my salad were over-grilled. Getting & paying for check took longer than usual and my "to go"... More

I've been here a bunch of times. I've had good food and not so good food, properly cooked proteins and horribly overcooked proteins, great chili and chili I couldn't eat. The big thing is the staff. They overcome the occasional issues and get it done. However, they've recently (Apr 2015) changed the pizza dough. The new one is just horrible.... More

Food is good, but not excellent. Steak was not especially flavorful. Service was good and server was very friendly.

We had a fairly large group of people for dinner and they accomodated us nicely. The food was great as well as the service. The location was very close to our motel (within walking distance). I had never eaten at Puelos but would definitely return if I have the opportunity.

I was introduced to this place by a local friend. He prefers it for the excellent food, good pricing, service and quiet atmosphere. I was very impressed both with the food and the service! They serve the best kale (a favorite of mine) that I've tasted in a restaurant!

Obviously there were a lot of options. Our waiter, Jason,... More

This has to be one of the worst experiences I have had in a restaurant in quite a while. And is the first negative review I have ever given a restaurant . It is way overpriced for the amount and quality of food that you get. My wife and I both got the prime rib that was way to fatty... More

We eat here quite often with family and are never disappointed. Everything from the appetizers of fried Green tomatoes to the prime rib dinner are superb. The Caesar salad is wonderful and the sweet potato side dish was very tasty as well. Overall, I would highly recommend Puleo's to everyone in the Knoxville Metro area.
