If you read my previous post you may remember that our daughter Megan and grandson Drew were here visiting us recently. When we drove up to Michigan we made the trip all in one day since it was just DH and me. When we returned home with Megan and Drew (who is three years old) we decided that we needed to spend the night in a hotel to break up the trip.
One of my favorite activities while staying in a hotel is watching programs on the food network. The night we were watching in the hotel we happened to catch a program — Drive-Ins, Diners, and Dives — featuring various restaurants and their specialties. They mentioned a place in Knoxville, Tennessee called the Pizza Palace . Since we would be traveling through Knoxville the next day we decided to stop and try it out. We were not disappointed!
The Pizza Palace is not a fancy place, but the food was very tasty. We actually stopped again on our way to take Megan and Drew to Cincinnati this past weekend and then again on our way home. Here are a few pictures in case you would like to try it sometime when you are in Knoxville:
Here's a picture of the restaurant:
Here is Jerry tossing pizza dough:
Here are the onion rings prepared by Chef Monroe :
The spaghetti is one of their specialties.
This pizza was delicious.
Our waitresses, Vanessa and Pat were exceptionally friendly and helpful. It was a fun little adventure and we plan to go back in the future when we pass through the area. It's right down the street from the Knoxville Zoo. I would encourage you to give it a try and then let me know how you like it.
