Awesome burger!

One of the best burgers I've ever had. So glad we got a chance to stop by on our way through the area. My husband's chicken breast sandwich was also delicious (with lots of chicken), but back to that burger! Everything a burger should be: perfectly grilled burger, good meat, big pattie, great... read more

On our way South, a friend shared 'you must lunch at Litton's', amazing burgers and cake! So we did, we met friends from the South visiting Gatlinburg. Perfect meeting place, great burgers and wonderful desserts! Employees were very hospitable, service was great, it was an all around fun experience. Family atmosphere, travel clothes not out of place. Highly recommend on... More

Litton's has become our new go to place. The staff is always very friendly and the food is always consistently fabulous. That includes everything on the menu. Sometimes you need to prepare for a wait to get a table but that is a sure sign of how good the food is. So go with plenty of time to really enjoy... More

Litton's is one of the staples of Knoxville that must be visited. They serve one of the better burgers in the Knoxville area, and their desserts are great. The servers are always friendly and courteous. Overall, a very pleasant dining experience.

This is our second time dining at Litton's. Once again everything was perfect. The burgers are excellent and the onion rings will melt in your mouth. If you are in the area definitely enjoy a meal here!!

The burgers are excellent, wait staff is friendly, and the best cheesecake in town. All desserts are homemade, bread is freshly baked, and the sweet tea is the best.

Litton's. Everybody in the Knoxville area knows about Litton's. I'm sure we've been there 10-15 times in the 26 years we've lived here. It's a place to go when you have visitors in. Visiting tv sports announcer types go there. Wow!! It's Litton's!! We each got cheeseburger plates. A "plate" is when you get fries or onion rings. The onion... More

I hate giving poor reviews......Litton's has been a North Knoxville treasure for decades. They boast of fabulous burgers and the best desserts....No, no, no. Very little parking, substandard burgers, and disappointing desserts make this last on my list. If you need a great burger, go to Seasons on the west side of Turkey Creek. Great desserts are found at Ham... More

Our quality cannot be surpassed in not only our burgers but all of our dishes and we... More
