Got the frito Chili bowl, it was great. The whole family loved this place including my mother in law. We liked the orange tea as well. We will have to make it back one day when we go through Knoxville again.

This place is always a winner. I love stopping by Petro's every time I am back in Knoxville. They are such a local favorite that they even serve Petro's at the Tennessee games. My favorite part is always a big glass of the orange tea!...More

No matter what I order, the food is consistently awesome. My fav is the queso petro which is equally matched by the classic version. I love that you can make it your own by adding or leaving things off. And I could not possibly do...More
