I always get the white chicken chili! I crave this stuff in the fall and even have a copy cat version that I make at home, but theirs is SO amazing! Also, try the fried okra...just like momma made!

This is a Knoxville locals' favourite. The ribs are out of this world good. Go hungry, grab yourself a huge beer or a mojito, and chomp down on delicious food. Very friendly place, excellent value. Zero complaints.

Had a recent business trip to Knoxville.

Met my local rep for lunch at Calhouns on the river..Great location, great food.

I had the smokehouse salad and it was fantastic.

Looking forward to my next visit to Knoxville to go again.

I had lunch at Calhoun's on the River with a group of ladies today that included 2 visitors from Germany. They had eaten at this restaurant when they visited years ago and loved it and wanted to return. Tina was our server and she did a terrific job. Our orders were served just as specified, which is not an easy task when 7 ladies are talking and ordering at the same time. Tina also took great pictures of our group. Our food was excellent. The whole experience was delightful and I will return again when setting up a ladies' luncheon -- and for dinner too!

We are here for lunch on the patio. Great service limited menu when seated on the patio. Great BBQ nachos and boneless tenders. Will definitely return.
