Cheddars Casual Cafe and Cootie Browns, best all-around menus, can't beat the prices. Chefs Pizzeria has gotta be the best local pizza. Of course, no visit to East Tennessee is complete without that mandatory Pal's sauceburger pitstop!

I've lived in Kingsport for 20 years now. Plenty of good restaurants, depends on your likes. My favorite is "The Crazy Tomato" in Colonial heights (also one in Johnson city). Simple but tasty Italian. Best all around "American" food is Cheddars. Applebees is good, lots of people like Cootie Browns (my wife's favorite but not mine), Chili's is good. Giuseppes is good Italian too (a little for upscale than the crazy tomato). Mexican restaurants abound. The most popular (but my least favorite) is La Caretta.

If you want a steak, or just a more upscale restaurant its Chop House. Good Japanese is Moto's. And Tomy Thai's is very good, especially if you like spicy.

Although I can't think of any local restaurants that I dislike, I would have to say that Ming Garden (Chinese food) is one of my favorites.

The chop house has the best steaks in my opinion, but my wife and I just went to the "Grocery Co" in downtown Kingsport and it was great for gourmet pizza, burger and is a micro brewery with some great beers.

Definatly worth a meal when you want a great pizza or burger.
