There are some places in Gatlinburg known for "Silver Dollar Pancakes" or griddle cakes as they are called in the south. Memphis is known for its Barbecue, Somewhere in TN they make those Peanut Clusters & Pecan logs, of course I agree with the Blackberry Cobbler, Red-Eye gravy & biscuits which I think is made with a ham hocks not coffee...never made it with coffee myself and I am TN native for 18 years anyway...maybe I need to check on that...hehe. Down here in Atlanta where I live now we can get that kind of fare, but its called "Soul Food" rather than home cooking, but it is still good.
I love going for Fried Chicken Livers, collard greens, fried green tomatoes & okra a glass of sweet tea & banana pudding for dessert of course I do not do that very often at all or my diet would be blown totally.

Vera- You're right on the pancakes! My favorite is "Flapjack's" in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. They serve drinks in Mason Jars.

We travel to Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg a couple times a year. We like a place called Duff's Smorgasboard (I know that spelling aint right). They have almost everything you could want. We also like to go to the Old Mill Restaurant and the Applewood Restaurant, their Applewood Julip is scrumptous! As for the livers, I will NEVER EVER eat ANY kind of liver again. My Mom use to make us eat that stuff when we were kids and I was scarred for life. If they fed liver to the inmates in prisons everyday, I bet there'd be a lot less overcrowding in prisons.

My mother used to make red eye gravy, anytime we had ham. I didn't particularly care for it, but I loved her apple cobbler. Every so often, tho, she'd get in the mood for liver, but she'd get calf's liver. She and my dad would eat it. Just the smell is repulsive to me. Yuk! I'll eat any other type of high iron food if I need it, like when I was anemic a few months ago, but I'll stay away from liver!

Give me a good mom & pop restaurant, as on the most part, they're the best.

blessings, Shen

I was one of those weird kids who would eat liver. Whenever they served it for school lunch, I had all the liver I wanted since all my friends would give me theirs!

(Actually, since one of the cooks was my aunt . . . I didn't go hungry anyway. ;-)

My husband loves, and I mean loves, Liver and Onions. He is a Texas native and misses the Luby's Cafeteria's in San Antonio. The only place around here (Maryville/Knoxville area) that we can find for him to get (calf) Liver is Gracie's in Alcoa. I have a great recipe but I just can't stand cooking/touching/seeing/smelling it. I grew up in upper northeast Tennessee (Kingsport) and my parents are from southwest Virginia and I've had my share of animal parts thankyouverymuch. (I refused to eat squirrel at around age 8) LOL.

Anyone know where to get some good Liver and Onions in the greater Knoxville area?

Thanks in advance and Happy Eating!

The Longhorns Restaurant in Nashville as a special on liver and onions on Wedneday (I think); all you can eat.

Is there a Longhorns in Knoxville?

I'm with you about squirrel. If I was starving I would eat it . . . other than that, I ain't cleaning no more squirrels.

Fried Bologna sandwiches... I was raised on em!
Love my sweet tea (although I don't love it over sweetened as most of my TN family does) A sprig of mint always was a treat!
Also love my nanna's fried corn pone!
