This is the best old-fashioned pizza ever! It is a drive-up restaurant where you order from your car and a waitress brings out the tray of food. They have many delicious specialty Italian dishes (homemade ravioli, spaghetti plate) along with some steaks, fried chicken and big salads. All the food plates are giant servings with Italian bread. The pizza is... More

My dad is the one that first brought me to this establishment. He would come to this place all the time as a kid, and now he brings me. I swear to you, when you have this food, especially the onion rings, you will want to cry the food is that good. You have to come here at least once... More

Along with Chandler's, it's one of the few must-go menus, on Magnolia Ave, the Kingston Pike of the east side of Knoxville. Really. Hwy 11 it is, which was the main road through town before there really was a west Knoxville past the university. Pizza Palace's onion rings, pizzas, and very affordable menu have no rivals on that side of... More

You must take cash, they do not accept any type of cards or checks. The food is amazing and freshly made. It is an old school feel, you drive up and order by the telephone (kind of like sonic). A half order of onion rings are $3.00 and when I tell you they are enough for a family!!!! They have... More

This restaurant is one of the original drive-in places in Knoxville. Located in a not so great neighborhood, some folks shy away from it, but it's worth the risk believe me. Run by descendants of the original Greek family that opened it, Pizza Palace on Magnolia Avenue is never disappointing. Most of the waitresses are ghetto fabulous but really sweet... More

My friend and I eat out quite a bit and we always try to go somewhere we have seen on the Food Network shows. This was featured on ODDs. Although we didn't have the pizzas we did see other diners eating them and they looked outstanding if you happen to like thin crust as I do. If I ever get... More
