I'm going to be driving from NC to St. Louis on Saturday and Knoxville should come up right about lunch time. Can anyone give me some suggestions of good eats not far off of I-40?
At either the Strawberry Plains exit off I-40 or the Cedar Bluff exit off I-40 (SE corner), Puleo's is a local restaurant chain with good food in a peaceful environment.
Start with their Fried Green Tomatoes (on cheese grits with a red (usually Andouille) sauce and a white sausage sauce.
Then anything from a small pizza to fried catfish .......
I agree with Puelo's for lunch. They have a pizza and salad with homemade dressings special at noon.
