Food is good, especially the desserts. Friendly staff; good service. A little expensive but probably worth it if you want something a little different.

We were referred here by a friend that was raised in the Knoxville area that said this was one of the best in the area and won many "best Burger" awards and he was right. The Thunder Road pimento burger and meat loaf were very...More

Litton’s is a well-known place to invade for lunch among locals. The burgers are huge, very hometown feel atmosphere & don’t forget about the pies! That’s their cornerstone!

Incredible burgers and atmosphere!!! Be prepared to wait during peak times - there is a reason everyone wants to eat here! I also love sitting at the counter - lots nostalgia and a friendly staff.

Great food. It's a bit pricey but the quality is there. Service is excellent. I would recommend just getting the burger as its cheaper than the meal.

Awesome place for the best burgers platters around. Onion rings and fries are also the best. Usually a crowd but well worth the wait if needed. Don’t forget the delicious desert assortment. Highly recommend

I recently ate at Litton’s with my family. Burgers were great as always. All the staff was friendly and checked on us, refilled drinks, and brought food quickly. The kids meal is huge.

Based on Trip Advisor tried this restaurant. The burgers we're good but not best. Thought the menu was limited. Baked goods we're excellent, but again limited selection.

Salads, white beans, potatoes big enough to make a meal on, and bun-less burgers are all suggestions that we believe you will find to make your meal gluten free. Sweet potatoes and cream toppings will definitely top the... More
