Litton's has the most wonderful cheeseburger! And, though, Harrison's is super,too. And need I say about dessert? Their cakes, particularly Italian Cream and Red Velvet, are beyond delicious. The restaurant is casual and the prices are somewhat high for burgers and dessert, but the service, the quality of the ingredients gives them high marks. Although I would not select Litton's...

The food is great and I would go here on a date night with my wife but its expensive for a family. The last time we ate here as a family(2 adults and 4 kids) We spent just over $100 and didn't get anything fancy. The food and service deserve 5 stars but I'm giving 4 because of the price.

Great little restaurant...one of the best in Knox. Tasty burgers and equally tasty fries. The red velvet cake is also a must try for dessert. Be prepared for a wait and for prices a little higher than usual, but it is worth it!

There is a reason this place is awarded the best hamburger in Knoxville every year. The meat is great but the buns are home made and they're outrageous. They just melt in your mouth. And...the desert are incredible. Go for the coconut cream pie. Their specialty. Not too fancy but worth the trip to Fountain City.

This place has the very best burgers on earth! I've honestly had a better hamburger anywhere. I have eaten at Litton's once, nearly three years ago, and it was just as good now as it was then. The desserts are equally as good. The service was excellent. It is easy to see why this restaruant has been around for ages... More

Another place that's been around since Sherman torched Atlanta. It's always packed but for what I'm not sure. They are known for their burgers but they were just above average, nothing special. Big yes but nothing special. The deserts should be more of a showcase. They were amazing. A cute place to get lost in a corner booth on a... More

So so good! Hamburgers are so good. I understand why this restaurant is rated so high! Everything was tasty and seasoned well. Service was outstanding despite it being very busy! You can tell the management and staff really care out their product & service! Recommend to all!
