Family Tradition and Good Food Is Alive and Very Well Here!

Burger Platters are a little pricey, however the taste and quantity cannot be beat. Be hungry when you arrive, for they have home made pies and cakes that are some of the best in the Knoxville area! These folks have a long time history of quality food, from sandwich to steaks. They are right off... read more

You can't go wrong with any of the burgers or chili dog. Hubby tried the Thunder Road burger with pimento cheese, onions, and a whole jalapeño. Very messy and very good!! I had the chili dog which I'd always good. Must eat with a fork and knife! Tried the sweet potato waffle fries for the first time. Very good and... More

The only downside to Litton's is the long line to be seated. The burgers are great and the deserts are awesome.

Litton's is a huge, hometown favorite. Everything they do is fresh and homemade--homemade hamburger buns,homemade cakes and pies, freshly ground beef. Prepare for a wait because there's usually a line, but it's worth it.

I had the burger and fries at Littons. I ordered my burger medium and it came out medium well. The burger and fries were acceptable, but not exceptional. The Litton's atmosphere is tremendous taking you back 40 years to another time. I didn't have a dessert but they looked really good through the display case. I will try Litton's another... More

It's a favorite eatery in Fountain City, with a wait list as long as your arm in prime time. The burgers and fries are good but a bit overpriced. The deserts are home made and are worth the wait.

Litton's may be a little outside of town but if your looking for a great burger and a slice of homemade pie then Litton's is the place for you. Their lunch specials are very good as well.

One of the best burgers you will ever eat, made fresh in house on a daily basis. The French fries top off the meal, but they are much better if you eat them at the restaurant instead of ordering as takeout. The desserts are beyond amazing... Especially the chocolate chess pie!! But you have to come early to get a... More
