Family owned restaurant. Excellent hamburgers; they have the only "not made at home" chicken salad I will eat; baked potatoes are iffy...they never seem to have been washed before baked. That's the only negative I can give Litton's. Desserts are wonderful, so are the onion rings and collard greens. Expect a long wait if go at lunch time or evening.... More

Their hot dogs, hamburgers, and good old home cooking is the best! They have THE BEST banana pudding on Tuesdays! Sometimes you have to wait, but it is worth it.

You can't go wrong eating at this place. There may be a wait, especially on weekends, but it's worth it.

I saw Litton's reviewed on-line, and also asked some locals and they confirmed it was a Knoxville institution. I drove out from downtown after a conference I was in town attending finished for the day. Although it was a Friday at prime supper time, I got seated quickly at the counter as a solo diner. They have basic rib-stickin' food... More

We have been dining at this restaurant for many years and never been disappointed with their fare. The burgers can be ordered with about any toppings or for the purists, plain and delicious. Their fries and chips are also great, but don't load up too much on the entree, as their desserts are sooo very good and plentiful! Anyone visiting... More

A good burger, ground fresh daily served up with not greasy fries. Good coffee, refilled as needed without asking. The pie? Coconut creme pie is my favorite dessert. Litton's has coconut in the filling too, not just sprinkled on top. I find the coconut flavor just right. Service was excellent.

The guy at 5/3 Bank couldn't rave enough about this place. We were just going to pop into McDonalds as we were in hurry. But he insisted it would only take a few more minutes and would be well worth it. My husband's burger was pretty good but for 12 bucks it should be spectacular! I decided on the "homemade"... More

Our family had a great meal here! Started with the wonderfully awesome onion rings!!! A must try! Husband got a burger and said it was fantastic. I got chicken salad and it was very good too. The staff was very friendly! And don't forget about their desserts!! The pecan pie is out of this world!

Littons has the best burgers in town. The burgers the fries, everything is fresh. I like the steaks and prime rib at Littons. Food is always consistently good. The desserts are fantastic. Need to try the fresh strawberry shortcake. Good service very friendly staff. I recommend it to people all the time and no one has ever said they did... More
