Do not have all the selection of the bigger stores in Maryville/Alcoa but definitely has a variety and can certainly stock your shelves and fridge. Their meat is always good and prices reasonable

This is a genuine general store; very dated and filled with everything imaginable. I love stopping here to select refreshments. The staff is very friendly, yet laid back.

Nice place but just your ordinary touristy gift shop. Had a few local crafts that were interesting. Small restaurant in the same complex where we had an average lunch.

French toast, eggs, hash browns, ham - all very good and reasonably priced. You order at the counter and the food is delivered to you at your table promptly. So...this is a little quicker breakfast for people in a hurry to head outdoors. But, the...More

We were staying in a mountain cabin in Townsend and were headed to Cades Cove. There is no McDonalds or fastfood around so we ventured into the Marathon gas station for, what we thought would be, a stale donut and old coffee morning. Wow, were...More

We are a local family owned business serving fresh made to order food. We provide indoor and outdoor dining, takeout, or delivery. Our breakfast is served all day. All of our meats are purchased fresh and never frozen. Our burgers are hand pattied and cooked to order dressed as you like them. Our fries are cut to order from fresh potatos just like momma used to make. Portions are large enough for the hungry man and tasty enough to please a queen.
