Planning a return visit to Tennessee soon, I am the originator of the "New to Oak Ridge" thread. I haven't been in a few months and I'm really really craving good bbq and fried chicken. And that red velvet cake from Fatty's, but that's not the point of this thread.
What's the best, absolute best, I can find in Knoxville or Oak Ridge?
I've been to Calhoun's, I liked it a lot though I know it's a chain. Their cornbread is my favorite.
We are willing to drive up to 45 minutes from Knoxville. Not interested right now in anything beyond that, planning to stay in the immediate area.
