Order the Litton Burger. You won't need fries. They didn't ask me how I wanted my burger cooked. But it was cooked perfectly. It was huge! And not at all expensive. You can pick our the exact dessert or steak that you want. And it's across the street from the fountain city fountain! (Feed your... read more

I really did not know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. We ordered a half order of onion rings and half order of sweet potato waffle fries. They arrived piping hot and both were excellent. Dear husband ordered the Chicken Caesar and I had the house salad with grilled chicken. Both salads were very generous in their portions, and...

I've had steaks in some of the best restaurants in the United States. It isn't fancy, but the filet (when they have it) is one of the best you can get. If not, enjoy a bacon cheddar burger and chocolate or strawberry cake. Servers are just nice, hardworking people. Friendly, but not smothering. Eddie is the best server around, but... More

I have been going to Litton for many years. Sad to say I am a slave to their burger and fries. I am sure everything else is awesome but I am drawn to them. Their desserts are equally tasty. The place can get packed so time your visit strategically

I have eaten at Litton's for many years and have always enjoyed my meals there. I was a little disappointed recently, not with the food, but with the way my friends and I were shuffled around several times for seating. We called a day ahead to try to reserve enough tables for a large party of 16, but were told... More

Litton's is a well known establishment in North Knoxville. You either like it or you don't. It is a loud diner type atmosphere. They have good burgers, but they aren't really worth what you have to pay. If I go to Litton's, I would rather have their desserts than anything else on the menu. Go after a movie for dessert...

Hello Elizabeth S, While we are happy to hear that you have positive attributes to say about our establishment, we are disappointed that you had felt that the menu items are not worthy of the price tag. Please know that all burgers are prepared with the highest quality beef and our steaks are hand cut. The remainder of our dishes... More
