My husband and I have read the great reviews of this little place and decided to make it a "must" on our next trip to Townsend. We live in Pigeon Forge, and decided, today would be a great day to take our bicycles out to Townsend, as the bike trails are wonderful there. We already knew that we wanted to stop at "Campfire Grill" for lunch, having read all the wonderful reviews here on Trip Advisor. From the street, this little restaurant doesn't look like much, but they offer a patio to dine on and plenty of air conditioned seating inside. Upon walking in, we were greeted by a super friendly staff working behind the counter. The menu consists of hot dogs, hamburgers, tacos, burritos and various sides and soft drinks as well as a cooler full of different teas/drinks...and a stand with a variety of chips on it. The prices are VERY reasonable. We ordered a burger with onion rings, to split (as we were to be having a large dinner later on). We sat down at a table, where another patron began talking to us about how he visits every saturday because the food is so good. Our food did not take too long to cook, and the man behind the counter brought it out to us, apologizing for the wait...yet, we did NOT wait too long for a fresh cooked burger with onion rings. So far, we were super impressed. They offer a variety of hot sauces, and you can request any of them. We took our food outside to eat on the patio. The burger was FRESH, juicy and delicious. The onion rings were perfect. You can tell a perfect onion ring when you bite into it and the onion snaps off, rather than pulls out through the whole ring...and these were perfect :) Over all, the staff was super friendly and attentive, the food was delicious and priced well. If you're in Townsend looking for lunch...this is a MUST... especially if you have kids! The hot dogs are so affordable and come in a wide array of variations. I don't see how anyone could be disappointed with this place!!!

Dear Vanessa J,

How wonderful that you decided to give our place a try on your day to bike through Townsend! (I've been biking through Townsend since I was a little girl, and it is still one of my favorite things to do.) We are so happy that the TripAdvisor reviews led you here and that you loved it!
Jason, the owner and my husband, is proud of his variety of sauces; he has been perfecting them for some time. Thank you for writing about them. He was thrilled to read that you thought the burger was juicy and especially thrilled that you wrote that the onion rings were perfect!
In fact, you wrote a beautiful, priceless review of our place, and we are very grateful that you wrote and that you enjoyed your experience with us. We hope that you will come back very soon and will try the other dishes on our menu!
Thank you so much,
