At Lenny's Sub Shop, named Best Sandwich Shop in 2010 by CityVoter Knoxville, team members bake fresh loaves of bread every morning and slice deli meat to order for each sandwich. Lenny's Sub Shop has been active in Knoxville for 14 years and it has grown to reach diners in more than 15 southern and midwestern states. Its signature 7.5-inch sandwiches cradle a half-pound of meat and cheese, the 10-inch holds 3/4-pound while its 15-inch Heroic subs hold up to a full pound. On the lighter side, the 5-inch holds 1/3-pound. Hot pepper relish blended from diced cherry peppers is available to add zing to deluxe clubs, roast-beef sandwiches, and veggie subs. New items include the chopped BBQ sub, potato salad, wraps, coleslaw, and a large variety of chips. In addition, the shop also serves kids' meals.
A vibrant outdoor mural with a giant arm leads the way to Big Fatty's Kitchen, with the heart tattoo on its bicep declaring its love for cold beer, and its hand—adorned with a blingy dollar sign ring—pointing toward poboys and brunch. Inside the cheery yellow and fuchsia dining room, chefs whip up jerk chicken, barbequed pork, burgers, and hearty vegetarian dishes. Patrons can nibble indoors while spinning the knobs of a foosball table, pack up their suppers for carry-out orders, or invite Big Fatty’s to cater their local celebrations.
Crowned Best Overall Restaurant by the Knoxville News Sentinel in 2010, Puleo’s Grille takes tongues on a whirlwind taste tour with its eclectic menu of Southern and Italian classics. Circle tooth wagons around scrumptious orders of fried green tomatoes partnered with a savory side of stone-ground cheese grits and country gravy ($6.99), or lay a delectable claim on Italian mainstays such as lasagna ($11.99) or artichoke- and caper-flecked chicken piccata, which gets its beauty sleep atop a bed of linguini draped in lemon wine sauce ($14.99).
As the founder of Domino’s Pizza, Thomas Monaghan knows all about fast delivery. But instead of pizzas, his new venture, Gyrene Burger, serves juicy hamburgers with the quick precision of a military enterprise. That makes sense, given that the shop's 40-seat dining room is decorated with vintage military gear.
The eatery is unique in serving premium hamburgers rather pizza or Chinese food, and their goal is to get the food to customer’s homes in 15 minutes or less. That's helped by the succinct menu which features beef burgers and chicken and BLT sandwiches. With such a condensed menu, chefs can focus on tracking down the freshest—never frozen — 100% Angus beef without fillers. They also feature sesame buns that bookend patties and prep top-notch toppings that include thick-sliced pickles, Texas-smoked bacon, crispy whole-leaf lettuce, and Florida-grown tomatoes. For those visiting the restaurant in person, there is free rooftop parking off of 20th St.
Garrett's Downtown Deli borrows both a name and a philosophy from owner and founder Garrett Scanlan, whose childhood job in his father's kitchen and formal apprenticeships at several kitchens across Europe have led to appearances in more than 50 cookbooks and his own television program, 90 Miles with Chef Garrett. Behind the counter, Chef Scanlan and his kitchen crew take time to construct his eatery's deli-style fare as if it were served in a gourmet bistro or about to be sacrificed to a vengeful volcano. Sandwiches are crafted from Garrett's own recipes and contain hand-carved meats that are roasted in-house, including turkey, ham, and corned beef sliced thin, piled high, and paired with a pickle and chips, coleslaw, or potato salad. A hot-entree-and-salad bar poses even more choices for eager eaters, with daily rotating spreads of pasta, barbecue, baked chicken, from-scratch soups, and diet-friendly salads and recipes.
