We were passing through area and staying at the nearby Best Western. Friday evening and the place was crowded which is always a good sign. Had a bottle of 1/2 price wine that was featured, salads and decent pasta dishes. Good food, good service and a fair price.

While traveling thru the area we stayed at a nearby hotel and wanted some decent takeout. Typical fast food gets old quickly. I looked up the menu on TA and called in an order. Purposely arrived at the restaurant early so I could sit at the bar and have a beer while waiting for the food. That's my little trick... More

Atmosphere - good, Waitress - great, Food - average. We were meeting our son who was in the area on a business trip. Had no ideas, so after searching for something with easy access from I-40 and good reviews, we decided on Puleo's. It was convenient.

I just had a most excellent experience here! When I am in a different city every day I take great delight in a fine meal. Since I lost 55 pounds in a year I have become increasing attentive to calorie count. I can highly recommend the ahi tuna grill, pink center, with asparagus and a napa slaw. Asparagus was done...

We travel with our dog, so we stay at La Quinta Inns and this restaurant is next-door to one in Knoxville Tennessee. We ordered a great chicken piccata with pasta for takeout and it was ready in 15 minutes, the bartender was fabulous and open a bottle wine for us to take to go! Cheerful and friendly folks, good food,... More

Scallops were large fresh delicious and plentiful. Served over polenta. When I come back I'm ordering them again.

I live close to this place. I can't seem to force myself to get anything besides the Rattlesnake Prime rib. From their Menu description: Slow roasted prime rib hickory grilled and coated with our special rattlesnake seasoning, topped with Boursin cheese. So tender you can almost cut it with a fork. With that Boursin, I need even need Horseradish. Hard... More

My family and i eat at Puleo's at least once a month. It is kind of an upscale Cracker Barrel with really good home cooking but also steaks and Italian dishes. the prices are very reasonable. Knoxville is an "eating out" town particularly on Friday and Saturday nights and one usually has to have reservations. Surprisingly I have almost never... More
