The wait can be long, and the parking tricky when they are busy, but one bite into their burger, and one taste of the delicious desserts they offer ..all is forgiven and you realize...they are worth the wait! We have eaten here for years and have never had a bad meal. Sometimes we go...just for dessert (yes, the desserts are... More

My husband and I hadn't eaten at Litton's in quite some time, but it didn't matter. Nothing had changed except the location of one of the dessert display cases. Litton's always has a delicious daily special, but it is sooooo hard to get past the fabulous burgers and hand cut fries, that I rarely get to try one. And then... More

Their burgers, oh yeah, their burgers. Although, just about anything off the menu is bound to please all eaters from the average to the finicky. Price is a little high, but it's a local business and they have a great standing in the community. So next time you're in Knoxville and craving a good burger, skip a drive thru and... More

First, if you want to eat lunch there try to arrive at 11 am, this place is so popular it fills up quick. They have a special daily plate, our day was fried chicken. We were seated after a small wait, the service was great despite the usual crowd there to eat,they were also hosting a party in the back... More

Another great burger was enjoyed on this visit. Having eaten here before I didn't need the menu and just ordered the burger and fries. The service is always prompt. The food was excellent. Fortunately they had key lime pie so I couldn't resist and had a slice.

Liked everything I ever tried--hamburgers, hotdogs, chicken breast sandwich, fish, plate lunches, and desserts are out of this world. Red velvet cake coconut pie and cheesecake are some of my families favorites. Free parking. Could be a wait during peak dinner hours.

A coworker and I were taken here for lunch while in town on business. I had the Tuesday special, boneless fried chicken breast with biscuit and gravy and broccoli casserole (banana pudding is the recommended dessert and comes with the meal). Everything from the service to the quality of the food was great. This is definitely a place I would... More

This place has some of the best burgers I've tasted, but you will pay for the taste. This place normally has a slight wait time to be seated, especially for lunch.
