Great sandwiches

This is a great place to stop and grab a fresh sandwich. It's right on the Tellico River and Cherohala Skyway. The panini is great. Relax on the deck riverside while eating😃

We ate at Kats before we rode the Cherohala Skyway. We both had the chicken salad sandwiches. Excellent chicken salad. There is a small deck out back overlooking the river. Very nice.

This place is a hidden gem. The best sandwich I've ever ate. I don't know the type of bread but it was wonderful. If this place was in my neighborhood, I'd be in heaven. Great customer service as well. Southern hospitality all the way.

While staying on Lake Santeetlah, drove the Skyway to Tellico Plains and stopped here for a late lunch based on the other reviews. Husband and I split a pastrami, swiss cheese, coleslaw etc. panini and each had more than enough to eat. High quality and yummy taste. 15 year old boy enjoyed a huge grilled 3-cheese panini and said it... More

Talk about a locally owned "treasure". My daughter and I ate at Tellico Kats twice this weekend, and each time was a wonderful experience. First - the place. Make sure to take seat outside so you can watch the calm and beautiful Tellico river. It was 94 degrees outside, but the deck was air conditioned and comfortable. Each time waiting... More

One of the best places in Tellico Plains. I love that I can eat by the Tellico River while my dog swims or on the porch overlooking the river.... year round! Sandwiches are wonderful and everyday there are specials. They also sell so local made goodies and some basic camping supplies.

My husband and I stopped while passing through. We decided to stop because of the reviews from others. I'm glad we did! Very small place but very friendly employees. The food was amazing. Bathrooms were clean. Not a lot of seating but there were a few tables inside and some on the porch overlooking the river. I will definitely consider... More

We had a panini and throughly enjoyed it. The porch by the river really added to the experience. When in Tellico, be sure to stop here for a sandwich!
