"Pricey but good"

Went for lunch with my wife and friend. Got a big salad and two pizzas, one large and one small. Drinks, which were water and teas, totaled $42.00 with tip. Their woodfired pizza is really delicious and big enough to take some home. Went last year but forgot to review them. Not this time!

We have been to hard knox numerous times and each time the staff seems unhappy to have customers. Rude might be too strong of a word to describe them, maybe unhappy is a good term. Pizza is pretty good.

My son and I order two different types of pizza, one white sauce one red. Outstanding in everyway - fresh, made to order and reasonable turn around time. A must stop if you're from Knoxville or just passing through.

The Butch Please was an amazing pie! As well as the Carerna! Nice set up and very laid back environment!

It's always spot on! We stop here to eat whenever we pass through Knoxville. It's very close to the university in a great neighborhood.

We chose Hard Knox based on reviews found here. It was easy to find and is in a shopping center so parking was easy. You place your order at the register and then they bring it to you. We chose a meatball pizza with red sauce, ricotta and fresh mozzarella. It's a small place but we managed to get a... More

Sort of take way. Very limited sitting place. Coming from Europe, believe me, this place makes great pizzas!

Very good pizza. Small establishment, great service, and wonderful staff. We had the Salami and it was a little greasy, however it is salami and expected! Also had the Iron Mike without sausage and it was just as good. We will definitely come back and try out some more.

Being a native NY/NJ guy, pizza is near and dear to me. The pizza, the Marciano, was great. Added mushrooms and ricotta. I do have 1 issue with the "white" pizza. I did not order it, but the term "white sauce" is not a northern pizza thing. Standard white pizza is garlic and oil, covered by mozzerella and dollups of... More

Route 11 (aka Kingston Pike) in Knoxville has to be the most jampacked strip of restaurants and stores I have ever encountered. Basically, you name it and it's there. It's a classic case of too many choices. Should you chance to take this not-so-scenic route and want above-average thin-crust pizza, I'll save you some time. Hard Knox does a terrific... More
