At the beginning the Petro was made in a Frito's bag, but now you get a bowl, it's easier to eat that way. There is nothing like a Petro with everything. Don't forget to get a side of marinaded cucumber. It wouldn't be a trip to Petro's without it.

Petro's got its start at the 1982 World's Fair in Knoxville. A "Petro" is the perfect combination of Fritos, chili, and toppings. It's one of the most delicious foods in Knoxville! They also have a vegetarian Petro which makes it even more fabulous. Their queso and chips is quite tasty, as well. And don't forget the hint of orange sweet tea!

We like the Petros food for a fast meal that is different than the standard burger and fries fast food. Excellent quality and value.

A 'simple but complicated' construction & mixture of chili, fritos corn chips, cheese, sour cream, etc. Everything layered just right, delightful. Try one original, or they have both a pasta version and a low-fat one with fat-free cheeses and sour cream. Still great!
