Delicious and affordable with an Extensive menu. We had pepperoni pizza, gyros, falafel and spumoni cheesecake. Everything was full of flavor which can be hard to find in some restaurants. Falafel had a great depth of flavor and was fried perfectly. The pita, lettuce, and tomato were all fresh and of nice quality...The gyro meat also tastes like it was... More

My absolute number one favorite drink in the world is vimto. I initially came in to buy that but was attracted to their wide selection of foods and tried the pizza. It was incredible. Also their gyros and falafel are pretty great as well. You really cannot go wrong with this awesome little hole in the wall.

My college roommate was a NY Italian who introduced me to real deal pizza in the late '70s. Since, I've had pizza all over the country and consider myself an aficionado. I have to declare this the best. I could write a few hundred words to describe every detail but I think it can be summed up with quality. Every... More

I've been a customer of World Foods for quite some time and I've never been disappointed with the taste, quality, preparation and variety of their menu that can't be matched locally. Jennifer provided service and a smile with everything correct with my order. I would urge anything traveling through on interstate 40 to exit and just detour a couple of... More

Every time I cross I-40 between Nashville and Knoxville, I try to time my trip so I can enjoy lunch or dinner here. It's worth the short drive into town from the Interstate. All the food is excellent! The pizza is my personal favorite and the standard by which I now judge pizza wherever I go. The combinations of ingredients... More

Been wanting to stop here for a while. Ordered 2 pizzas to go and a cheese steak sandwich to eat there. The cheese steak was excellent. The pizzas I ordered were clam and garlic, and a portobello and capicola. The portobello and capicola was very very good. Had great caramelized onions and good spices. The clam and garlic, not so...

Fresh and everything you order is prepared with care. You call in order (best) otherwise, they are very busy, but worth wait..

If you want some great pizza that is out of the norm from other places, then you might want to try World Foods! Their pizza is fantastic. The Gyro is also very good! I have been to World Foods several times and it is just a great little place that is unique and very good. If you have never tried... More
