“It ain't as good as it once was, but still worthly of a dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2010

Sam and Andys was downtown UT campus on Cumberland Ave for many many years serving the very best deli sandwiches around. Many a student returned for a hot sandwich rolled in foil for a heavenly dining experience. The lease ended and other members of the guys that started it took it to west Knoxville several years ago. It is still a Tennessee Vol haven and still serves great burgers and deli sandwiches. The deli sandwiches are smaller than they use to be and cost a little more but still good with a hot basket of fries. GO VOLS!

“Not fancy, but good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2006

This little old diner/grill type restaurant on the west end of Kingston Pike is well known to the locals for its huge spaghetti platter and Vol burgers. But we prefer their hot turkey sandwich on dark bread with mustard and mayo. It's an absolutely heavenly guilty pleasure! They also have pretty good fried mushrooms, and they serve Luzianne tea (no self-respecting southerner will touch that instant stuff).

The atmosphere is set by dark wood paneling, self-serve drinks and diner-type tables. A large tv plays sports (often football), and the cook calls up your order like he's hawking a sideshow. We find it quite charming, and we rarely miss Sam & Andy's when visiting Knoxville.
