The food here is super awesome. It is quite possibly the best pizza in town. In fact, it is worth coming to Knoxville just to get Hard Knox pizza. I'm not so much a fan of the new restaurant's atmosphere, but who cares when the...More

Amazing pizza! We make this trip once a year and the restaurant has doubled in size since last year. It's busy all the time and the service is slow, but it's worth the wait.

This is some of the best pizza in knoxville. It's really good. It costs a little more than the national chains, but the taste is well worth the price difference.
