Calling out Southern Chowhounders... can you please give us some restaurant recommendations for Knoxville. Will be there for a quick weekend trip (headed to Bristol for NASCAR) and will have one night to taste the specialties of Knoxville and a chance to have breakfast.
We are looking for local restaurants offering up regional specialties. Also - what are the local specialties? Coming from SF, it is hard for us to get good steaks, BBQ, fried chicken, biscuits, grits, country ham, etc. I grew up in Alabama, so I really miss some of the regional specialties like those listed earlier and hushpuppies.
Any recommendations / ideas are greatly appreciated!
