Living in Knoxville, I’m always surrounded by Southern traditions that occur on Sundays. Eating with family members after church is one of these Southern rituals. When my wife was out of town and returning on Sunday, I surprised her with a tasty meal from S&S Cafeteria. For many people in the local area, S&S Cafeteria is one of these Southern... More

I love coming to this place every time I get the chance. The food is always the same "Very Good" I have never got a bad meal here. The roast beef is always my favorite but when they have baked chicken livers it makes a hard choice for me. The pinto beans are always seasoned perfectly. Keep up the Great... More

I couldn't bear the thought of another travel dinner and was desperate for home cooking. I was on my way to a pizza place when I passed S&S Cafeteria and turned right around. Good call! I ate roast beef with mashed potatoes and corn, plus a pretty good muffin. Everything was tasty and really hit the spot. Sometimes these places... More

Really good solid country cooking. Large selection of wonderful meats, chicken and seafood. Huge selection of great vegetables...which is hard to find when you're traveling. Also very appreciated, the hot food is hot and the cold food is cold. They also give you a refill of your beverage to go. Thumbs up!

Be sure and order the Beach Burger! You may pass this popular weekend spot without realizing it. Yes you sit outside on picnic tables, order at the window. Summer cuisine on the Tellico River.

My fiance and I decided to stop by S&S on a Saturday at lunch time. Before going through the line we were unsure what the price of everything was going to be, so we just winged it. We both got a meat with two sides, a salad, dessert and a tea. After examining the ticket, both our meals together came... More

I love coming to this place, and I do every chance I can. The sliced roast beef is always great and the pinto beans are just like homemade. If you don't like county cooking then you want like S and S.

The food was OK by cafeteria standards, however, I always question the quality of the food at these places and confess this is not my favorite type of dining experience. The dining area was quite worn and my chair was pretty wobbly.... To be fair, my elderly guest was quite pleased with her "chicken and dumplings", so maybe I just... More

I have never reviewed a restaurant before, or really anything before, however I will share my thoughts with you while my wife is getting sick after eating there. The food that should have been hot was only mildly warm. The little meatloaf I had was cool and bloody, the other meat I had I could not tell you what it... More

This is what you expect when you go to a cafeteria. Walk down the line pick each dish as you go by. I was totally lost though as this was my first time there. The signage isn't that great and I was confused as to how it was priced and if there were any combo plates. Halfway down the line... More
