This is a great restaurant for a family, and couples. The atmosphere is very friendly and enjoyable. The great thing is the portion of food that they serve. You definitely get your money worth at Litton's. The deserts are awesome, from pies to cakes. You get a large portion of deserts too!

I have lived in Knoxville for 20+ years and have visited Litton's on many occasions; lunches, dinners, business meetings, family get togethers, etc. I've heard they bake their own bread but you couldn't tell. Their hamburgers are good, but I've definitely had better. They do have great desserts. But overall with all of the choices it is too easy to... More

Litton's is world famous. The burgers are amazing but the deserts put the burgers to shame. It is a must try. Bring an appetite. Do not walk In the door if you are on A diet. Be sure you save room for the desert. This is a must visit.

Litton's has been popular ever since their opening a number of years ago; in Fountain City, it's frequently cited as a 'must visit', along with Louis restaurant. Friendly and crowded, typically with attentive service. Food quality is uniformly above average. Now, I'm going to give you two less-than-superlative comments. Their hamburgers are very good, but in my opinion have been... More

This is a family business established about 1946. The service is good and the burger great. Unfortunately no space for brownies!

Litton's is one of our favorite places to eat. The hamburgers are excellent and quite a handful to eat. When I am not ordering the Litton burger, I am ordering the Roadrunner. It is a full chicken breast on a bun, always cooked to perfection - not dry - and covered in grilled onions, Monterey Jack cheese and a Jalapeno... More

If you're looking for a restaurant where you can relax and have a great meal, then Litton's is the place. The food is excellent and the service is second to none. Litton's is a Knoxville tradition that won't disappoint. Of course, with food this good, you may have to wait a little bit, but it's worth it. If you like... More

I've been going to Litton's for years. I first found out about Litton's through AAA whom had recommended them. They have good sandwiches but what I like best are the cakes and pies from their bakery. If your driving through Knoxville (Mon. - Sat.) you must make a pit stop here.

Terrific place to get an over the top hamburger. Need just a dessert theirs are the best. A must try is their amaretto brownie, hard to eat it all in one try. Friday and Saturday nights are busy you will probably have a wait.

Thank lusks46
