They do not do much advertising, it is in the middle of nowhere and people often think the place itself is a little rough around the edges, but not many will dispute that the food is really good even legendary in some estimation.

Relocating to Knoxville.... Good Restaurants? Grocery Stores? Pho? Sushi?

I agree with others who suggested Tomo, it is very good. I should have recommended it too in my first post. Also, just to note, The Knoxville Community Food Co-op/Three Rivers Market, that I mentioined, has now moved from Broadway to a larger new location at 1100 Central Street in North Knoxville and it is really fabulous. I like the fact that it is community owned and is in a slightly scruffier neighborhood as compared to the other "healthy/organic" stores in Knoxville that are all concentrated in the wealthier western part of town. I would probably shop there all the time if I didn't live south on the other side of the river. http://www.threeriversmarket.coop/

Knoxville area - looking for Chicago type food.....

Ok, well, I was just down at the University of Tennessee and spotted another possibility. It is called Niro's Gyros, Chicago Style Food. I have not eaten there but their website indicates that they have Gyros, Chicago hot dogs, Maxwell Street Polish, Italian sausage sandwiches, Italian beef sandwiches, meatballs subs, roast beef subs, Greek salads, chili cheese fries, chicken, burgers, baklava, and more. It is on 17th Street not too far from Stefano's Chicago Style Pizza and sounds like it it could be right up your alley.

Knoxville area - looking for Chicago type food.....

There is Stefano's Pizza on Cumberland Avenue down near the University of Tennessee. They call themselves Chicago style and while not totally authentic the crust is pretty thick and very tasty. Also, there is Harby's Pizza way out Broadway in Fountain City. The owners are Palestinian and have no claim to Chicago, but the pizza kind of reminds me of Chicago style due to the toppings being so thick and extremely generous. In addition, if you don't mind heading a bit out of town, not too far south of the airport in Maryville, there is a Pizzeria Uno, now a chain, which claims to be home of the original Chicago deep dish pizza. It is off Lamar Alexander Parkway near Kroger and Target. I have not eaten at this particular location but ate at one in New York once and thought the pizza was very good.

authentic (nonchain) Mexican food in Knoxville?

Quite a bit late, but for future reference I would agree about Senior Taco (3325 Broadway) and Chez Guavera (8025 Kingston Pike). Senior Taco is a favorite among Mexican/Guatemalan immigrant friends. You get free all you can eat chips along with a salsa bar and they have some things on the menu not offered at your typical American Tex Mex restaurant. Che Guavera too has things not offered at your typical chain. Also good is Poncho's and El Charro. Poncho's is a chain but I think a local chain. Their is one Poncho's out Chapman Highway near John Sevier and another one in Maryville on 411 as you head out of town. They have several seafood choices and really good mole sauce. As for El Charro, it is also a chian but again a local chain. They have two restaurants both on the west side of Knoxville. The original one is on Kingston Pike near Bearden Hill. It actually used to be across the street where Soccer Taco is now, but has been around for years. It is pretty standard Tex-Mex, but very good.

Favorite thing to cook in a cast iron skillet

I love cast iron skillets and use them for just about everything from omelets to pancakes to sauteing greens, to pineapple upside down cake, etc. In fact, I do not even bother using anything else. They can do just about whatever a regular aluminum or stainless steel pan can. However, I think my favorite thing to make in a cast iron skillet would have to be southern style cornbread. The skillet must be preheated, the corn meal must be stone ground and there should be absolutely no flour or sugar added. The best cast iron skillets, in my opinion, are a brand called Lodge. They are made in a little town in Southeastern Tennessee called South Pittsburg. They are available at lots of different stores, available in a variety of sizes, are pretty inexpensive and come already pre-seasoned. I am probably a little biased since my great great grandparents are buried in South Pittsburg, but the folks at Cook's Illustrated Magazine even recommend them compared to a bunch of others so that seems like a pretty good recommendation in my book. In terms of caring for them, it is not really too difficult. Just don't over scrub them as you do not want to scrape off any good seasoning built up. After you wash it, put it back on the stove to heat up just enough to dry it out. Then use a paper towel to put a very thin coating of oil all over the inside.

Vegetarian-ish grub for road trip through Knoxville

Another thought--right off Interstate 75 before you hit the Interstate 81 split heading north out of Knoxville is El Chico's. It is a Mexican chain, but for chain food it is really good if you like Mexican food. They have spinach casadias and veggie fajitas. Plus, you can get enchiladas stuffed with cheese and/or spinach. They also load you up with free chips and the service is pretty quick.
