We had someone bring some pizzas to work from Hard Knox and they were amazing. I tried the BBQ and the sausage, but the chicken pesto was my fav. Can't wait to go there for myself. So good!

Fresh ingredients. The BBQ pizza is so good. Not bad priced either. One of the best pizzas in Knoxville. Good service too

Hard Knox has absolutely the best wood fired pizza in Knoxville. Fresh ingredients, friendly service, and fantastic atmosphere is the best way to describe Hard Knox. Prices are very good for the size and quality of food you get. And you can't go wrong with any of your menu choices.

Except for not using "00" grade imported flour, HardKnox meets all the standards of Neapolitan pizza, including an authentic oven. Generally, their product is as close to Italian pizza as you are likely to find, given the American predilection of over-loading pizza with toppings. Toppings are generous and of high quality. Service is friendly and efficient. Great pizza, if you're... More

Wood fired pizza in a small setting. Our party tried two different pies. One arrived overdone- edible but not optimum. It was all tasty but not remarkable. I am not a pizza snob, but I want a great pie when I pay a decent price. We had two solid pies but not scrumptious. It's an ok choice for lunch, but... More

Hard Knox has amazing pizza made with fresh ingredients. I love their Iron Mike pie. The staff is consistently friendly and I really enjoy their patio tables when the weather is warm.

This local pizza place is located in a strip mall. Made me a bit skeptical. Had great Yelp and Trip Advisor reviews so, gave it a shot. My only complaint is that the restaurant is quite small. Wouldn't be such a big deal, but since the food is so good, it was packed. The pizzas are hand tossed and all... More

I remember not long before I ate here, I was complaining because Knoxville has almost nothing but chain pizza places. Then I heard about this place and was excited and it did not disappoint. They have a unique and delicious menu that comes with plenty of options for everybody. Last time we went I had a great white pizza and... More

This place has great pizza and I enjoyed their draft beer selection as well. The atmosphere was decent but not the kind of place you would want to hang out in for any length of time. Go there for the pizza - you will not be disappointed!

Probably some of the worst pizza I've had. Their sauce is not good. They only have 1 size pizza available which is not ample enough for 2 average size adults. They do not have the beer selection that's listed. Their salad & dressing are "ify" at best! Definitely not worth the rating and number they have listed!!
