We lived in Knoxville 9+ years ago, in the Fountain City area. Visiting more recently for work, I was joined by coworkers from Denver, Philadelphia, Chicago & Atlanta. They all loved Litton's!! Burgers, onion rings, greens, great service and desserts packed to travel. What's not to love at Litton's?

Lots of tradition. Local eatery that serves up great burgers and ribeye. Sweet potatoes fries were some of the best I've had.

We found Litton's on Trip Advisor. What a wonderful 'find'! Our waitress was a pro and so welcoming. I am sorry to not have gotten her name. Our burger and onion rings were amazing!! Memorable! We shared a piece of pecan pie and are now fans of this charming restaurant. We can't wait to return!

Words really can't do justice to a burger with onion rings and a slice of coconut cake at Litton's. It is perfection on a plate. Well, plates. The service is always friendly and the food is always great. This place is like home for me.

I was very excited to eat here after reading the reviews. Maybe I was expecting too much from the restaurant. I tried a burger. It was ok. It wasn't bad, or exceptionally good. It was just average. The desserts were average too. The service was friendly. For me, I won't be going back.

There is a reason this place has been around so long, top notch food, great servers and a real mom and pop atmosphere! Great supporters of the town and UT! I pick up a red velvet cake every year on my birthday and we took our entire family there after my daughter graduated from UT, and couldn't have been better!

We stopped for an overnight in the area and saw this restaurant by chance. Research noted it was one of Southern Livings "South's Best Burgers." We decided to try it for lunch before we left town the next day. Service was fast and courteous, our server was super friendly and chatty. She was a sweetheart. Menu prices were a bit... More
