Description: The creation of a truly great sub is no small feat. At Lenny's we pride ourselves on serving up Authentic Philly Cheesesteaks & the Deli Fresh Experience. Since the beginning, Lenny's commitment to quality and attention to detail has gone into every restaurant and every sub sandwich. The first Lenny's Sub Shop opened in 1998 in a suburb of Memphis, TN to satisfy cravings for authentic subs and Philly Cheesesteaks. Though Lenny's Sub Shop was originally planned as a single unit restaurant, the tremendous reception from guests at the first location prompted rapid growth and the concept soon became franchised. Lenny's, now owned by Lenny's Franchise Systems, LLC, continues to expand across the country. Lenny's is the only place to find Authentic Philly Cheesesteaks & The Deli Fresh Experience. We slice our meats and cheeses fresh to order and pile them high on fresh baked bread. With about a half pound of meat and cheese on the regular size sub, and about a full pound on the large size sub, Lenny's provides an unmatched value for our guests' hard earned dollars. Our Philly Cheesesteak is cooked fresh to order and is served hot off the grill. Lenny's commitment to its guests is clear More Food, More Taste, More Personality. Our commitment means that substantial portions, quality produce and great customer service can be found in every Lenny's Sub Shop.

My wife and I have been eating at this shop for several years, and have NEVER been disappointed. The wonderful hot sandwiches made here and the positive attitude of the managers of this shop make it a pleaseure to come back over and over for another "Lennys Fix".
Our favorites are the Hot Italian and/or the Hot Philly cheesesteak. Very filling meal at a good price. Keep up the happy attitude and good work.

“Best Steak & Cheese in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2013

Great sub spot. The steak and cheese is always warm and gooey. Can't beat it. It has multiple location but the one on gay street is the best because of the atmosphere

“Best Sub Shop in Knox”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013

Lenny's, on Gay St., serves excellent sandwiches in a great location in the heart of downtown Knoxville. You have to go for the Philly Cheesesteak with the hot pepper relish. On a nice day, its great to sit outside and people watch.
