Knoxville Hamburgers

Not quite Knoxville but it's not that far away - Alcoa. THE BEST burgers are at Hot Rods 50s Diner. Look at their pdf menu and see how huge the choices are - which is also exactly what they serve - HUGE portions of great food. If you join their eclub on the internet, on your birthday they send you a gift of any Burger (they're all 10 ounces) or any Entree up to $9.99. They send you something for joining but I can't remember what since it was awhile since I joined. If you choose fries as your free side with your burger you will be amazed at how many they give you - it must be almost a pound. If you look at their SPECIALS you will find one of my favorites: "THE HOG" for $6.99. It is a huge cut of pan fried breaded pork tenderloin. I'm not kidding it has to be at least 10 inches in diameter and it is not paper thin. This place has the MOST for your money. I have never found a restaurant that piles on the food like this place yet it tastes so good.

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

Hi Brawny - I'm not really sure if I understand you but are you saying there are many other choices of Chicago Style food in Anderson County? If so, I'd love to know their names and locations so I can check them out.

Do you know if they're still in business? I've tried their phone number all day and only get voice mail.

Thanks for the info - I will try out the two in Knoxville next time I'm there, I live in Maryville and the Pizzeria Uno closed up last year but I bet that would have been very good.

Top 3 Hot Dogs

dr_mabeuse, It seems like you remember a lot from my old neighborhood - but do you remember an Italian Beef Sandwich served on a bun ? My memories are a little hazy because I think I was only 5 or 6 when my folks used go there but I can still taste it - the best ever. I also remember getting it with Mustard, Relish, and Onions on it. The place was called Rocky's and located on Clybourn and North Ave ???? Really hazy.

Top 3 Hot Dogs

My memories begin with Frank and then a bag of fries cost $0.20 and a hot dog with fries cost just $0.25. circa 1953.

Looking for SMOKED FISH - CHUBS

White Lily Corn Meal & Flour sell at Food City and Kroger stores in Knoxville, TN. Hope you can buy some on your way to VA.
Good Luck.

Looking for SMOKED FISH - CHUBS

Hi Mutti, Never heard of White Lily Corn Meal & Flour but I'll do some checking for you and let you know.
Hagens may be better now. Don't have a choice for me to get jumbo smoked shrimp since they charge $15.00 per pound which isn't much more than the raw & cooked at the grocery stores and the Smoked is SO MUCH BETTER..... If you do check out Hagens you can get a mix of fish and shrimp.
Will let you know about the flour and corn meal.

Looking for SMOKED FISH - CHUBS

Thanks so much for the info - I LOVED THE FISH !!!!!!! I got mine on Friday so I'm still enjoying them. Since they don't ship anymore until November I plan to get some from Hagen's in Chicago - both Ciscoes and Shrimp. They don't have chubs though - just the ciscoes. I had Hagen's ( www.hagensfishmarket.com ) shrimp & chubs (about 5+ years ago) and it was good - not as good as Joe's Fisheries in Chicago but they closed their doors years ago.

Looking for SMOKED FISH - CHUBS

Thanks for the info - Really nice person helped me to learn that Smoked Ciscoes are supposed to be very close in taste to chubs so I ordered 5 #s which should deliver by the end of the week. Unfortunately they don't have smoked shrimp so I'm still looking for more referrals.

GREAT Asian Buffet & Sushi Buffet in ALCOA, TN (a mile from Maryville)

Recently opened in Alcoa, TN is the Asian Buffet & Sushi - which is superior to most buffets because they also have a Sushi Buffet amongst their other great dishes. I'm not into Sushi too much but my son is and he loves the way they make it and the fact they offer so many different sushis (diff fish and diff presentations of rice, seaweed, etc) and it is included in the Buffet price. They are very reasonably priced and also offer many items which are all truly delicious. They're between Lowes and Walmart and always quite busy which shows just how good they are.

authentic (nonchain) Mexican food in Knoxville?

Just about a mile down the road from Los Amigos (in Maryville) is the recently opened (in Alcoa) Asian Buffet - which is superior to most buffets because they also have a Sushi Buffet amongst their other great dishes. I'm not into Sushi too much but my son is and he loves the way they make it and the fact they offer so many different sushis (diff fish and diff presentations of rice, seaweed, etc). They are very reasonably priced as well. They're between Lowes and Walmart and always quite busy which shows how good they are.

It almost a year later but maybe you can take your mother out this year to a great place in Maryville - authentic/home made and very reasonably priced. I'v tried only a few things on their menu because I love them so much I just repeat myself each time.

However, I miss certain foods as I mentioned above and would love to find some of them here so when I get the urge I can pig-out Chicago Style. Just looking for some help from anyone who can direct me to a restaurant, pizza place, hot dog stand etc. that has Chicago style eats.

Top 3 Hot Dogs

I agree with how the trimmings were many years ago. tomatoes, pickles, celery salt all came later - I prefer the original way on a Vienna hot dog

One of the BEST. I grew up in Chicago and my very favorite was on Dickens & Halsted but it was torn down decades ago - NOW THAT PLACE WAS AWESOME!!!!

joe's fried shrimp

Joe's fisheries was one of the BEST in chicago - I grew up near Armitage & Halsted and graduated from Waller High in 1962.
My favorite hot dog stand was on Dickens & Halsted and loved their tamales almost as much as the dogs & fries.
Moved to Knoxville TN area a couple of years ago and really miss the Chicago food. They don't even try to offer it here - no dogs, Italian Beef sandwiches, Chicago style pizza, smoked fish. They have everything smoked except for Fish and Shrimp.
Wish I could go back in time for a few days and eat at all my favorite places.
