The burgers are good not great. The onion rings and fries are pretty yummy but $35 for two burgers one side of fries and one with onion rings seems way overpriced. Also tried the red velvet cake. Cake was moist but too sweet and had butter cream icing not cream cheese. I wouldn't get that again! The service was very... More

I split a piece of Italian Creme Cake with my husband and still had some to take away. It was delicious. You may want to start with dessert because that may be the only way you can even think about ordering it. The entree portions are so generous so i suggest starting with dessert or at the very least get... More

These are the best burgers in Knoxville. Been going here for many years. Great desserts too! Coconut cream is my fav and strawberry cake for my better half.

So many have voted Litton's as the best burger in Knoxville but I disagree. Maybe the bites are tipped by nostalgia? The burgers are good but I've had better. If you want a gourmet burger worth telling people about, head to Stock & Barrel instead.

After traveling up and down that stretch of Maynardsville Pike regularly for 4 years I never saw Litton's sitting just off Essary Drive in Fountain City. (Okay so the address is Knoxville but this really is Fountain City). While we were looking to stop somewhere for lunch my passenger saw Litton's and insisted we turn around and try it. I... More

The meat loaf, slaw, and fries were o.k., but the Mac'n'Cheese was perfect. Cornbread muffin was also very good. Fries must have been prepared earlier, were kind of soggy but would have tasted better if fresh. Service was better than average.

We visited Litton's while on a family errand . Advertised as homemade everything , the food was good. However , prices were a bit high, particularly for the quantity of food that came with each entree. For our 2 kids meals, 2 adult entrees total bill was over. $40. My fish ( fish and chips ) was dry and tasteless... More

What more can I say about Littons that hasn't been said? Fabulous burgers (I assume the other items are good, I just always get a burger because I love them so much). And the desserts?! You must have a dessert! Too full? Get a piece to go, you will not regret it. The Italian Creme Cake! The Red Velvet! The... More
