We had take out meals twice from Tomato Head during my stay in Knoxville. Got to try a turkey melt and a chef salad - both very delicious

We ate at 1:30 on a Saturday. We waited about 15 minutes. We shared the tomato chipotle soup, cheese pizza, and cheese quesadila. All was tasty and fresh. Service was good. It is a loud place, but the food is amazing. Definitely worth the try.

I stared going to Tomatohead with my college roommate back in 1999, and I fell in love with their Salmon Pesto Pizza. I take everyone here. Their hummus is what I base my standards for hummus on. Sunday brunch is also amazing. Plus, the Market Square is near plenty of venues for entertainment.

This place is known for its various sandwiches and general dishes. Not really know as a a pizza joint, but I discovered their pizzas about a decade ago and I have never been disappointed. Prices for their pizzas are not on the cheaper side but the moniker, you get what you pay for applies here. Highly recommend the pineapple and... More

Great place for lunch in the middle of Market Square. Food was great especially since there was a vegetarian in the group. The square was pack due to the Farmer's Market that goes on every Wednesday and Saturday which was a great surprise. The only downside is there was a 30 minute wait, but they took our phone number and... More

Really good. We had a pretty large party and we were seated promptly. Lots of different things were ordered and everyone was pleased. The salads were especially good. Good selection of draft beer and eclectic crowd. You will like it a lot.

Enjoyed this delicious place for lunch. It's right in market square which is a fantastic location. The food was good. We had cobbler for dessert. The prices were a little high. They charged my dad for a refill on lemonade.

We came in for lunch based on the positive reviews. We weren't hungry for pizza so we each tried their sandwiches and then got just a slice to share and test out. While the sandwiches were okay they weren't anything so spectacular that I would return just for that. The pizza however was spectacular. Loved the crust and sauce! Was... More

Just spent three days in Knoxville for Gran kids fall break and we had lunch to days in a row here. Today I had the warm bacon spinach salad with chicken which was fabulous! Yesterday a yummy chicken sandwich. Their homemade cookies are so good!!!!!! You can eat outside or inside.

We believe less processed food tastes better. Not only does it taste better, it's much healthier too. You'll notice this difference in our house made dressings and handcrafted pizzas, as well as in our colorful salads and sandwiches. Fresh produce from East Tennessee farmers like Hines Valley Farm, Mountain Meadows Farm and Colvin Family Farm is featured in our daily specials.

Well known for our vegan and vegetarian dishes, our menu has plenty for the carnivore. All of our proteins are nitrate/nitrite free, all natural and antibiotic free. Our house made lamb sausage is cooked in small batches to ensure freshness.

Our sister bakery, Flour Head Bakery, prepares all of the Tomato Head's desserts and breads (including gluten free!) Each morning. By using unbleached and unbromated King Arthur Flour, we create healthier and better tasting pizza dough and sandwich breads.

We also can easily accommodate your dietary needs. Whether it's a nut allergy, a preference for vegan fare or a gluten sensitivity, our staff will craft a dish to suit your tastes.
