Perfect stop before heading to zip line! Ordered two sandwiches, italian and the club, both delicious! Made fresh with quality ingredients and toasted to the perfect crisp! Quick and easy while on the go for the right price!

We stopped here for lunch the other day. They had an easel at the door with their menu and a piece of paper was taped to the top that said Today’s Special Cheeseburgers. We decided that’s what we wanted and after waiting in line we...attempted to order this and the employee said they didn’t have cheeseburgers. We told them that’s what the sign said so apparently that was the previous days’s special. We were looking forward to cheeseburgers at that point so we had to change plans. My husband ordered the chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. He said it was okay but not as good as KFC. My meal didn’t go as well. I ordered the open faced roast beef sandwich with mashed potatoes. My main complaint was the bread. It was toasted and hard to cut up with a plastic knife. It was buttered toast with a strong garlicky taste. This was nothing like an open faced roast beef sandwich I’ve ever had. One good thing about the restaurant is it was very clean. I might go back and try the chicken meal but I doubt if I will get another sandwich from there.More

The fried chicken is wonderful and moist. I have been here three times and have had no disappointing side dishes, including the mashed potatoes. Chicken and dumplings are the best. The biscuits are excellent with the homemade jam (strawberry is my favorite).

We stopped here for a quick bite to eat after a long day of hiking. I had the garlic Parmesan wings and the salt and vinegar wings. Absolutely loved the wings. Tanya had the Italian sub which was very tasty. The gentleman that took our...order and the waitress that serves us were very pleasant and kind. Really made us feel welcome.More

My Airbnb hosts had recommended this to me when I was in Gatlinburg. I am glad that they did because the food was delicious. I was disappointed that they were closed the next day because I wanted to order from there again. If you are...in the area, I highly recommend J.O.E. and Pop's Sub Shoppe.More

We ate there last year and it was the best food in Gatlinburg. The food wasn’t as good. I was a little disappointed because they ran out of mash potatoes. It’s still a good sub shop and I probably would go back if I was...in the areaMore

J.O.E. and Pop's is connected to Mama's Chicken Kitchen. We ordered Reubens, Chicken cheesesteaks, friend chicken, chicken & dumplings. You can order from both menus and combine sides from both menus. We enjoyed this restaurant so much that our family of 5 dined here twice...during our vacation. The indoor dining is peaceful. Parking is plentiful on site. The restaurant is located about 10-15 minutes from downtown. It's nice to get away from the congestion of downtown. Enjoy your meal!!More
