Travelling To Knoxville

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

We are travelling to the Knoxville area at the end of March. During our stay we will be in Bristol (for NASCAR race) perhaps Nashville and may even travel to Charlotte NC. Where are good places to eat? We already have a few places written down like Bonefish Grill & PF Changs but would love to hear some other places to try.

Thanks in advance for your help everyone

I live in Knoxville, TN. PF Changs is great. I don't have alot of things to offer. I do eat at a resteraunt here called McCallister's deli. You can get a very nice baked Potatoe. More like two baked potatoes. I eat there alot and get this. It is pretty plain the way I get it, with butter, sour cream and green onions, but they have awesome sweet tea. Also, I don't eat meat, but a lady told me she gets Samon at a restaurant called, BRAVOS. It is Italian, but she says she really likes it there and goes alot.

That is all I can offer you at this point. There are tons of restaurants, but haven't tried them for gluten-free yet.

In Bristol we have an Outback and a small local health food store that has a few gluten-free items as well as a Kroger that carries some.

Also, in Johnson City there are a couple of locally owned healthfood stores that carry some gluten-free items. Johnson City has an Outback and Carrabba's. I got sick at Carrabba's in Johnson City. I suspect it was cross contamination with the soup. I had eaten there presiously and did OK.

I really would like to go to Knoxville again. We haven't gone in several months but I've eaten at PF Changs. In Knoxville you will find Carrabba's and many Outback's. They also have Bonefish Grill in Knoxville that I've heard is awesome! The last time I checked they had a gluten-free menu online. :)

I'll even bring some Deby's stuff with me, then you won't have to worry about food.

WHere do you live now? I am just curious, because my husband is a resident at UT med center here in Knoxville and we are trying to decide where we will settle. We really like it here ,but are considering other areas. I would like to plop myself at the beach, but cost of living is higher on the coast.

I live just outside of Knoxville and wish I could give more help...I'm new to all of this myself. As for restaurants, we usually go for Chik-Fil-A, they have several items to choose from. We have many options to buy food. Some of our Krogers and SuperTarget carries gluten free items. Plus, there is EarthFare and Go Nutrition. Hope this is some help and enjoy Knoxville! It is an awesome place to live!
