If you're looking for a good sandwich, Parkway Grocery is the place. Food is always fresh, made to order, and served with a smile (and a pickle!) The steamed sandwiches are the best, and they boast over a million slaw dogs sold. Most folks order for take-out but there are several booths for those who prefer to eat on-site. Breakfast... More

My wife and I recently topped here for lunch based on Trip Advisor reviews. Several sandwiches are available, but we ordered Chicken Salad sandwiches and they were terrific. The Grocery is obviously used frequently by "locals", but the staff are friendly folks that make each sandwich to order as you wait. We enjoyed them so much that we stopped the... More

The epitome of small-town convenience store. Friendly staff, great prices. Their hoagies are yummy, and their hot dogs are famous! Don't miss the BBQ and cole slaw, too!

It does not get better than this place! Super cheap food with PHENOMENAL taste. This place is known for their slaw dogs so be sure to try them. They also steam their deli sandwiches so they are extra tasty! A woman named Pat always makes my food and she is so friendly and makes the best cole slaw. Don't let... More

On the corner of Lamar Alexander Parkway and Webb Rd. is the Phillips 66/Parkway Grocery. It has the most economical lunch in town. A hot dog with mustard and chili is only 89 cents, and it is good. You can add slaw for 20 cents more. They also offer barbecue, hoagies, bologna sandwiches at reasonable prices.
