Tomato Head is a great place for sandwiches, pizzas, salads and desserts. Nothing fancy but great quality, healthy and fresh food. Lots of vegetarian options. Located in the heart of downtown Knoxville on Market Square, it has survived lots of other restaurants coming and going so it's definitely a local favorite. After eating a healthy meal, indulge in one of... More

The pizza, salad, and service were all very good and at a reasonable price. However, I would not recommend the egg salad sandwich. For $8.75 I got chips and half a sandwich. I knew I was in trouble when I saw the bun and had to open it up to search for the egg salad. (I did eventually find it.)

I came here for lunch with my son. Market Square is very pleasant and the option to sit outside on a nice day is lovely. Service was good but the food, though fine, was nothing special.

My boyfriend and I were staying at an Air B&B in Knoxville and we enjoy eating at local places to experience the town. This was a great spot for dinner. We sat outside to experience the market square; it was really neat. The sandwich was a pesto small sandwich very good with a namaste beer. Highly recommend the blue corn... More

A bit expensive considering the portion size but the food was delicious. Waiter was great, nice atmosphere, an outdoor patio that looked great. Check it... More

The menu has a nice election of sandwiches and pizza. They also have a decent wine and beer list. Their pizza menu caters to all with traditional pizza toppings, but also has some unusual combinations. We had the sundried tomato, lamb sausage, and caper pizza it was something different and very tasty! They also have a nice dessert menu with... More

The food here is phenomenal!! You will never be upset leaving the place. After taking a recommendation from our waitress we ordered the number 3 pizza which I'm not entirely sure what it had on it but trust me it was a great pizza! Our server was very friendly and full of energy. I also drank their green ginger tea... More

Ate here at recommendation of friend. Hip restaurant, family friendly, college students, great pizza menu. The bacon on pizza is fantastic! I had the ham and pineapple pizza, but it was lacking in flavor. 9" pizza is just right for one person. I look forward to trying a different pizza next time.

I met a friend for lunch a few days ago at Tomato Head. We enjoyed YeeHaw beer on tap and got free Yee Haw glasses. We had the black bean hums with siracha and blue corn chips. It was excellent. My friend had pizza and I had salad with the mushroom dressing. It was unique and delicious. The staff was... More

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.
