We found Litton's o Trip Advisor and loved it. They are know for their burgers and pie. Burgers cooked to order and homemade buns. Awesome. And the staff was excellent. Good menu with lots of choices. If you like real coconut, the pie is for you. We will be back!

Our teenage daughter had read about the bakery in Southern Living and asked if we could stop by as we drove through Knoxville. We got there at 10:30am, just as they opened. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The cocoanut cream pie, snickers cheesecake, and pecan pie were excellent. It was a little pricey, but we didn't mind.

Getting a burger to take back to the hospital were I was visiting a friend, I waited inside in what was a worn interior. The baked goods in the case looked appetizing however I did not purchase one of those.... More

My love of Litton's goes way back into my childhood, with many family gatherings taking place there, but beyond that, the food is unbeatable. I have never had ANYTHING at Litton's that was not top notch. LItton's is famous for their burgers, which are juicy and tender. My two favorites are the Chili burger, which served with a side of...

Litons hands down has the best burger I have ever had. It is the single best restaurant burger off all time. They offer a nice environment to eat. There soda always tastes fresh and one can easily tell that they really know there way around a grill. I would recommend it to anyone living in or visiting knoxville.

I had a hamburger and a cup of chili. My wife had a cheeseburger and fries. The burgers and fries were great. The chili was okay, could have used a little seasoning. We also had a piece of coconut pie that was delicious. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. Will definitely return when I'm in Knoxville again.

I had heard about the burgers so had to go check it out. You can tell the meat is quality unfortunately the chef could use a good salt shaker in the kitchen. Food was not seasoned but after a little salt very good. The burger with pimento cheese and onions was a huge hit with my friend. Coconut pie was... More

The food is good. Littons burgers are pretty well known and have been on shows like college gameday. They're not the best on earth, but they're probably the best in knoxville. Great desserts too!

We only went here to get dessert to go so I can't comment on the burgers or other food. We both got the strawberry cake and it was amazing. I can attest to the fact it's homemade because it had actual pieces of strawberries in the cake. The icing was a cream cheese icing. The cake was moist and so... More

Absolute waste of money, time, etc. Was recommended by hotel we stayed at - Noted for their hamburgers - was a tasteless hockey puck that arrived at our table 2 minutes after ordering - that should tell you something. It was smothered with overdone onions and the weirdest fries I have ever seen. Fish and chips overpriced for 2 tiny... More
