Everyone thinks about hamburgers when you say Litton's. But I recommend the broiled scrod. You will also enjoy their fresh homemade rolls and desserts.

Everyone thinks about hamburgers when you say Litton's. But I recommend the broiled scrod. You will also enjoy their fresh homemade rolls and desserts. Their vegetables are delicious too- try the green beans. The daily lunch specials -fried chicken, meatloaf, and vegetable plate are all scrumptious.

I have eaten at Litton's for years, and never been disappointed. Ask anyone who is a long-time Knoxville resident, and most will have heard of and /or eaten at this landmark restaurant across from Fountain City Lake (it's really a beautiful little "duck pond", but the natives do not like it referred to as such :). I recently decided to... More

Some of the best burgers in Knoxville. I love a burger that is cooked to order. By that I mean I want high quality beef cooked up a juicy medium rare with only the toppings I ask for (for me a little mustard and ketchup only, maybe cheese depending on my mood). Littons always comes through with just what I... More

The desserts are fabulous, such as the red velvet cake. The food is very good and they give you plenty, but it is not cheap. There is usually a line so come early.

This place is a Knoxville institution.....and it has great food. If you want great desserts and a good old fashioned burger go here....they can be hard to get into on a weekend night but it is well worth the wait!

Litton's is a Fountain City institution located across from the "duck pond" in the center of the community and well-deserving of its excellent reputation. Very casual and neighborly but with top-quality meats, home-cooked vegetables, burger buns and desserts baked there. Linda Jones does all of the desserts and breads and they are fantastic. Everyone (who knows) picks out and reserves... More
