If you feel like having a "real" southern breakfast - go to Pete's! The biscuits are awesome and the service is speedy. The only thing I would caution is that if you're an oatmeal lover - they only service instant oatmeal, but my recommendation would be to skip the oatmeal and select from the other wonderful options.

Have eaten here a couple of times for breakfast on a Saturday morning. Always a huge crowd awaiting a table. Staff seem friendly. Food is great.

Great traditional breakfast (eggs, bacon, grits, pancakes), as well as omelettes (try the Greek with spinach, tomatoes, feta cheese). Old-fashioned diner with a snackbar. Seat yourself. Good prices and good Southern food. Good sandwiches and lunches as well. Can get crowded but turns over pretty quickly. We eat there for breakfast whenever UT has an early kickoff.

Being from Missouri and in town for the UT v. MU game, we went to this place based on a recommendation from a Missouri magazine (a guide to the SEC towns and places to eat, things to do, etc.). I'm glad we did! The food was CHEAP, and delicious! Four of us ate eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, and a biscuit with gravy (and drinks) for about $24. It was typical diner-fare, but the decor was much better and classier than expected. We would definitely go here again if we're ever back in Knoxville!
