Chandlers is well worth a visit. Easily the best fried chicken in Knoxville. Wide-range of sides. I have ever had anything bad. Highly recommend a visit.

Had heard great things about this place from a friend and decided to stop in for lunch. The food was just okay. I ordered the ribs and mixed collars/mustard greens. The ribs were great - falling off the bone and very flavorful. The greens lacked flavor and were just ok. My friend ordered the rotisserie chicken, green beans and Mac... More

You'll come for the fried chicken and stay for the sweet potato casserole. Don't come with the intention of sticking to your New Years diet.

We stopped through on our road trip because we wanted bbq. Sorely disappointed. The place is a real dive essentially serving cafeteria style food. We gave it a shot anyway but wish we'd stopped elsewhere. The pork sandwiches we had were pretty tasty, the mac & cheese as well. Surprised to find the "beans" I ordered were actually pinto beans,...

Maybe I should go back and try out some of the other menu items, but the ribs were inedible. I should have known better when the lady grabbed the ribs out of a steam table full of water. Yes, the ribs were being held in a pan of water. The only side that was edible was the frozen corn on... More

Real authentic soul food. Fried Fried Chicken is chicken that I didn't even know existed. Absolutely huge. Legs and wings are a dollar $1.15 a piece in two of each is plenty for a full grown man. Ribs Corn on the cob, mac and cheese, greens, fried pickles...... you can even wash it down with cherry Kool-Aid. Great place to... More

Chandler's is an east knox mainstay for good reason. I had the ribs, my favorite, but I also really like the broasted chicken. Their cabbage is famously tasty.

We ended up trying Fried chicken-very good, roasted chicken- very good, Ribs- excellent, sweet potato- excellent, and green beans- good. WE were passing by the next day on the highway and stopped again the next day and had the... More

Great place for lunch. If you want to eat in you need to get there a little early. Very good (bones) ribs. My favorite is roasted chicken breast with BBQ sauce on the side, they have about the best Mac and cheese I have had bought out ,. The greens are very good, I have never been disappointed with anything... More
