we are local here in Sevierville. we love the johnson family restaurants. we have been here a couple of times before but it had been a while. we met friends there. they ordered the big pop size of the club sub and the Italian sub....they really enjoyed them both. they got corn, slaw, beans as well as mac and cheese. i tried a bite of the mac and was not impressed. kind of bland and eh? i got the southern hot dog that was bacon wrapped with chili and cheese. my sides were slaw and beans. my husband got the two piece fried chicken, breast and thigh. his sides were creamed corn and mashed potatoes. everything besides the taste of their mac and cheese was delicious. the chicken was moist and tender, my dog was out of this world good. the beans are a must get every time. we loved it all. the biscuit with the strawberry stuff was like a dessert. again, everything was delicious. would do it all again for what we ordered. everyone working there was very friendly and service was very fast.More

We were recommended to this establishment, and were not disappointed. We ordered carry out to take back to our Resort Room. The staff were excellent and appeared to take special interest in our visit. Lisa took our order and was very friendly and helpful. Then...when we got to the room to eat, everything was prepared to near perfection. The food was delicious, no complaints. If we were from the area this would be a favorite stop.More

After waiting in line for 10 people in front of us doing individual meals, the cashier taking our order was very professional and courteous. We came during the month of November and the Johnson family businesses are offering 50 % discount. Food was served within...5 minutes by very friendly server and the subs are amazingly good. A definite must try and the best part it’s not in the hectic town center.More

We stopped here for our first visit back in September after seeing some advertisements. Our food was good and fresh, but we ended up spending nearly $40 on lunch. However just about anything in Gatlinburg is a little pricey compared to home. The staff was...nice, things were extremely clean, and they did a great job with distancing due to the pandemic. We did enjoy our food and may return at some point. I want to try the adjoining restaurant which I believe is Mama's on a future visit.More

We wanted a quick bite and are avoiding downtown Gatlinburg at all costs (traffic, COVID) and found this place just down the road. It was clean, reasonably priced and the staff were friendly. We had a Philly cheesesteak and a chicken cheesesteak with fries, mac...and cheese and beans to go. They have a wide variety of deli sandwiches on the menu, but are apparently known foe their cheesesteaks. The sandwiches were delish, fries were well seasoned and the beans were yummy! They have an adjoining fries chicken restaurant as well.More

We really enjoyed our lunch there. The Philly cheese and the Italian sandwiches were good! It comes with two sides, so you will be full when you leave.

We just traveled 10 hours, found our cabin and searched for food. Luckily JOE'S was open and willing to serve us even though they already started their closing process. Our food came out quite fast and it was really good. Definitely recommend for a quick...and easy sit down meal that is delicious.More
