Litton’s is one of those gems that is out there. Excellent food with a great bakery. Watch the time because they do get busy and sometimes parking is a challenge. But, it’s worth it for their food!

One of the best burger joints in the state. Buns are fresh..fixins are crisp fresh. The meat is flavorful and juicy. Pared with fries and a cold Budweiser can't be beat.. Desserts are awesome with large selection.. We will be back!!

We make a point of stopping here when traveling through Knoxville. Food is always excellent. Our fav is the strawberry cake. Portions are huge! Keep that in mind to save room for dessert.

Big cheeseburger and onion rings hit the spot. The service was good, restrooms clean and desert a treat. Prices seem to have gone up since our last visit for everything?

This may be a favorite in Knoxville for us. We usually do our office lunches here and the food is great. Love the burgers and fried chicken. The desserts are some of the best in Knoxville too. Can’t go wrong with Litton’s

They are known for their legendary hamburgers, which are very good, however if you want your hamburger to cook a little longer so there is no pink, you must tell the waitress/waiter up front. Otherwise they are all cooked the same. The buns are out...More
