Decided to finally get around to trying out the famous Soup Kitchen. What a pleasant surprise! I had probably some of the best broccoli cheese soup I've ever had out. The wife was very pleased with the chilli which she described as "good as her's" and the breads and sandwiches were fantastic as well. I recommend the Reuben and the... More

We loved the soup, salad and sandwich choices. Their soups are made without salt so you can season them how you like, but mine didn't need the salt at all. It was delicious. When you pass by you might not think it looks like much, but give it try and you won't be disappointed!

Many choices of soup made in-house. Breads, salads, sandwiches, and desserts. Good, filling lunch under $10 and fast. Better choice than burger and fries.

My son is sick today but requested Soup Kitchen chicken noodle. It really hits the spot not just for sick days either. I frequently stop there after work and pick up soup to go for dinner. There is generally 6-7 choices. Don't miss out on the fresh baked bread. There are 5 choices of bread including cheese bread and cornbread.... More

We were looking for a quick and healthy meal for lunch, and The Soup Kitchen turned out to be exactly what we needed - we enjoyed it so much that a number of us went back several times during the week that we stayed in Oak Ridge. You can't go wrong with anything on their menu, but of course your... More

The area Soup Kitchen franchise started here in Oak Ridge, and my husband and I have been regulars for decades. The soup selections are always homemade and interesting, and for those most interested in comfort food, the chili, cheese and chips combo is always a hit. The restaurant also has made to order sandwiches and salads, as well as breads... More

Always a good selection of soups and breads-my favorite soup is actually the chili-fun to go to before a football game but always a good lunch treat.

The name might seem to be a put off, but this "soup kitchen" is true to its name. They have almost 100 soup types in their cook book. Each week, diners will experience a choice between 30 to 40 of these with 8 to 10 offerings per day. The originality continues with a minimum of salt or sugar, preferring to... More
