My husband and I eat here often. We have tried a varity of the food on the menu. My faverites are the Fried Green Tomatoes appetizer and the Prime Rib. Their drinks also hit the mark. I can also recommend the Chicken Alfredo. We usually go slightly past the dinner hour about 7 and have always recieved fast courteous service.... More

Planned a business meeting near the airport for a few of us coming in from different places, and found this place. Enjoyed a very nice lunch, especially liked the shrimp and grits! Dessert was also very very good! Perhaps the best part was that the meeting went from 11:00 until 4 pm, and they never hurried us, bothered us, we... More

We had burgers and they were good, and the dessert was good. We just never are really impressed here. We hadn't been in years and decided to give it another try. Seemed ok, but just not our cup of tea.

We had the special 4 course dinner for Valentine's Day dinner. The spinach artichoke dip was amazing as well as the ceaser salad. The prime rib was a little disappointing because it didn't have much taste to it. My son ordered the ribeye medium rare and it came well done ( he didn't want to send it back though)The best...

Was in town for the day with a friend and wanted something different. Had never been to Puleo's so.... Food was fabulous, at a midrange price and the service was superb! Large portions had us asking for 'to-go boxes' and the leftovers were equally enjoyed a second day. Plan to stop by on our next trip through town for a... More

Stopped on he way to an event in Knoxville and they made sure we were served and back on the road in plenty of time. The meal was very good and the wine special was quite a value!!!

I have friends from out of town who pass through town periodically. They always want to meet at Puelo's on Strawberry Plains Pike. The food is delicious and reasonably priced. We were given a quiet table where we could visit. Our server was excellent, available without being intrusive.

Had the filet mignon with crab cake. The entire meal was perfect. Cheesy grits without the gravy where excellent.

First off, the banner hanging outside says " lunch specials $5" but they charge $5.99. Sure, it's just .99 but it's basically a dollar. Come on. The service is sloooooooooooooooooow and not impressed. I actually didn't get the special by the way; I had a $9 steak sandwich that was average.
