This place is awesome. It's unlike any other pizza place in knoxville. It's a small hole-in-the-wall that has never disappointed. They serve coke with pizza out of bottles, which is a cool touch, and have a small selection of draught beer. All of the ingredients they use are fresh, even the mozzarella; it's not that crap you get at other pizza joints. This place is phenomenal, and is definitely worth checking out!

TRUE brick oven pizza. Crisp, near-burnt thin crust, over-abundant toppings, fresh real mozzarella, sauce and toppings. Great service and pizzas come out fast! Easily the best tasting pizzas in Knoxville.

It is really good food - but the price tag is more reflective of a sit-down restaurant with a server at a nice table and chairs...not a table with backless stools.

We just dropped $40+ last night on 3 individual pizzas, salad and 2 bottled drinks. I'm definitely going to limit my future visits.

Visited on a Saturday - early evening. Far before any crowd. However, they apparently had several carry out orders in line before our arrival. Family ordered appetizer and 3 pizzas. We chose to set outside (pretty much in parking lot, but outside) - within 10 mins pizza #1 was delivered. Waited another 20 to 30 mins, pizza # 2 delivered. Then appetizer. After family ate app. and pizza, awaiting 3rd pizza and another 15 minutes, decided to ask about 3rd pizza. We were then told that a mistake was made and pizza # 1 was not ours at all. We could wait another 20 mins for "our" pizza.... 3rd pizza not even in the picture - OR - they would give us a credit for the missing pizza $15.00 + $5.00 ... for a total of $20.00. We took the card and left.
The pizza at Hard Knox is excellent. They have a choice of either red or white sauce with ample options of toppings. Crust does seem to be overcooked. (My experience with 2 visits/4 pizzas- each had partially burned crust.)
I will return and use the gift card..... maybe only have carry out. Will decide then if a return trip for on site dining is worthwhile.

This is simply the best pizza in Knoxville. The ingredients are all high quality and the thin crust is crisp and perfect. The staff is friendly and the service quick. We have tried several varieties and all of the pies hve been excellant.
