“Great Little Pizza Parlor”
Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

After being told by dozens of people that Pizza Palace has the best pizza in Knoxville, we finally tried it out. The pizza was authentic Italian style pizza with hand tossed made to order dough, real cheese, and a fresh tomato sauce. We also tried the onion rings, after prompting by the server. They were good, but not the best in town. We were surprised by the large variety of menu items, including pasta dishes, hamburgers, and even milkshakes. On the downside, there are only 8 stools at a counter for indoor dining. And the craziest thing.... CASH ONLY!!!

“You want to eat here!”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

It's the best little pizza place in Knoxville, hands down. Pizza Palace has been around for what seems like forever, at least 30 years if not more. Go there and order your favorite pizza toppings (we get the sausage and it's fantastic!) and an order of onion rings- they are literally piled high. If you like real pizza (not that delivery stuff), you'll love this. And don't let worry about the location keep you away. It's as safe as anyplace and the food is well worth the drive from West, North and South Knoxville. Park in the front and you can watch the guys making the pizza. If you have kids, park them next to the window- the guys have been known to put on a pizza dough tossing show for them. Seriously- don't waste any more time reading reviews- go to Pizza Palace now!

“Wonderful pizza and spaghetti”
Reviewed May 20, 2013

Eat there fairly often. The pizza and spaghetti are wonderful. Good quality ingredients, very tasty. Order to go and stop by and pick it up. There isn't really room to eat in.

“An Authentic Drive-In Restaurant - Brings Back Memories”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Hey, at Pizza Palace on Magnolia in Knoxville, you pull up to the curb and place your order over the intercom. A few minutes later your order will be delivered by a friendly attendant. Now that brings back the memories.

However, the Pizza Palace is also unique in that it's a drive-in will full course meals on the menu. You can have your Italian favorites like spaghetti, lasagna, and Veal Parmigiana. They also serve their specialty pizza and fried seafood dinners. My favorites are the Hoagie Sandwich and Greek Salad. You'll love the homemade pies.

I've been dining here since the 1970s and have never been disappointed. It's a good place for a meal after a visit to the Knoxville Zoo. Bring the kids and let them experience a true drive-in restaurant.
