Can't get a better milkshake or ice cream. Place has history. It's been here since before my time and I'm 49, I used to ride the church bus to get a cone when I was a kid. They have a variety of foods to choose from. The burger and fries are great with fresh fixing. I'd recommend this place if... More

Best place to eat in Scott County. Fast friendly service. It's not fast food, it's great food. You won't be sorry

Family visited Oneida, TN to do hiking in BSF and we have to say that it was one of the friendliest towns we been to. We mainly visited Phillip's for shakes and sundae's, which were always good. Recommend and will return.

Hands down - Best.Banana.Split.Ever. This place has been around for years, walk up window or small sit down area inside. Food is great! Sweet treats are even better!

During family reunion, my dad took us to one of his hangouts..Phillip's. Very much enjoyed the local hangout, friendly folks, and of course burgers and fries. Especially enjoyed looking at the train photos. My grandfather worked on the trains there...so excellent history lesson. We'll stop in again next visit.

Great place on a budget, prices are fair, consistant quality, Clean and good service. Hometown owned and operated. our company uses them once a week. My wife thinks they have the best pizza, it's been her favorite for the last 40 years.

While visiting the area stopped in for a bite. This is a local hangout, mostly a walk up window instead of car hops, but does have a nice sit in area for those wanting to go inside. Has some specialty local favorites like the Jerry Burger and a lot of ice cream setup. Worth the stop if you want something... More

I love this little cafe. Every time I visit Oneida, it is a must. The food is all very good, even better when you add the home made chili to your dinner. All of the meat is fresh and they are sure to add a huge helping of love to your plate. Then finish it off with ice cream and... More

Nice hometown restaurant! You must try the Jerry Burger basket (cheeseburger with special sauce, coleslaw, and fries). The pizza and taco salad are great as well. Don't forget a peanut butter milkshake!
