We travel with our dog, so we stay at La Quinta Inns and this restaurant is next-door to one in Knoxville Tennessee. We ordered a great chicken piccata with pasta for takeout and it was ready in 15 minutes, the bartender was fabulous and open a bottle wine for us to take to go! Cheerful and friendly folks, good food,... More

Scallops were large fresh delicious and plentiful. Served over polenta. When I come back I'm ordering them again.

I live close to this place. I can't seem to force myself to get anything besides the Rattlesnake Prime rib. From their Menu description: Slow roasted prime rib hickory grilled and coated with our special rattlesnake seasoning, topped with Boursin cheese. So tender you can almost cut it with a fork. With that Boursin, I need even need Horseradish. Hard... More

My family and i eat at Puleo's at least once a month. It is kind of an upscale Cracker Barrel with really good home cooking but also steaks and Italian dishes. the prices are very reasonable. Knoxville is an "eating out" town particularly on Friday and Saturday nights and one usually has to have reservations. Surprisingly I have almost never... More

Everything from burgers to steak. Stopped for lunch and had a chicken Palermo dish. Really tasty. Ample size and very reasonable. right of I-40 Service is very good and it is quiet. You can go for a lunch break. Recommend it very highly.

We loved this plAce which was right by our hotel. It had excellent food and the waiter was really good. I had the scallops and cheesy grits, so yummy. My daughter had a cheeseburger that she loved. They brought some rolls that my son ate. Was a wonderful nice restaurant and prices were decent. For the five of us it... More

We were two for dinner coming off I-75 after a long day's driving. Service from Jordan was friendly and attentive. We had a starter each (pass on the unimaginative house salad) but we shared a chicken piccata. The sauce was light and flavourful. Excellent! A glass of Merlot sealed the meal. About $35 before tip.

This was a slightly pleasant surprise, as I had expected I would have to eat dinner at the Cracker Barrel or Waffle House. I had the spaghetti with Italian sausage and sat at the bar nursing a Languinita's IPA while my wife dozed back at the motel. While I was there three people dropped in to buy $100 gift certificates... More
