We started with the fried asparagus, they had a perfect amount of crunch to the asparagus and the breading. I had the chicken florentine with sweet potato fries and cornbread dressing so good! Deserts looked great I tried the key line pie, this was the best key lime pie I've ever had!

While Staying at Fairfield Inns & Suites, Knoxville East, TN; we ask hotel manager to make a recommendation for dinner. He suggested Puleo's and gave us a 10% discount card. I checked the TA reviews and decided we would give it a try. Our waitress Megan V. was very pleasant, friendly, and reviewed some of the more popular items with... More

We had dinner here with family and the food and service was excellent! The name was misleading as we assumed it was Mexican, however the food is mostly Italian/American. Their pizzas looked delicious and was told they were very good. I got a salad and it was good. My husband got the chicken Parmesan and loved it. He also got... More

We were heading from the historic Ramsey House to Asheville and just happened upon this place. The service staff was very friendly and helpful. The crispy asparagus appetizer was a good start, and our main courses of canneloni and tuna tacos were also very good.

We haven't eaten here in a while but our i laws requested it bc of the prime rib they had here a year ago. We were sorely disappointed in our meal. There were 5 adults and 3 children in our party. The batter on all of their fried foods was SO SALTY!! It was the saltiest batter I've ever eaten... More

My husband and I found this place after seeing that our original destination was closed on July 4th. Luckily Puleo's was open and right down the street. We were seated and served quickly and our food was quite good. So good in fact, that my toddler ended up eating most of my pasta and ignoring his food from the kid's... More

We never ate at one of these restaurants before. Italian done Southern style? Out waiter, Jeremy, was superb. I got the chopped chicken salad which was ok since the chicken was dry. My wife got Chicken Picatta, which was very good, balanced seasoning and tender meat. Since we were staying at a local motel we got a discount, so mention... More

One year almost to the day after our first visit, we dined again at Puleo's Grill. It was nice to find that a good thing had not changed. In addition to dining in once, we picked up food from Puleo's for in room dining and the food and take-out experience were equally good. My husband enjoyed the Chicken Parmesan and... More

We stopped at Puleo's while passing through Knoxville on a long road trip. It was a great way to relax for just a few more dollars that we would have spent across the street at Cracker Barrel, where it is always noisy and hectic. Delicious steak sandwich for my husband and a very tasty salad for me. Excellent service as... More
