And Tomato Head popped up. We were heading to the market area so we thought we would have lunch there. My wife is on a strict dietary regiment due to her health and can only eat organic, non GMO foods so we thought it would be nice to stop in for a salad. We were told that "most of the... More

Hello Eric, I'm sorry that you were led to believe that our menu is fully organic. I think many online reviews might lend that impression, but we’re very specific, both on our menu and in our marketing communications, about the particular organic items we offer. We do offer a selection of local, often organic produce in many of our daily... More

We dined for lunch and had a very tasty meal. It was Sunday after the Bama game and there were many recovering college students loading up their tummy's with their parents. The food is fresh all made on site. The Tuscan chicken is fabulous as well as their home made soups. Great salads and plenty of vegan dishes.

Stopped in here today for a quick lunch. All home made items and many without meat. Try the pizzas. Good combos and and the soup was very good. Pretty busy but the quality is why.

Nothing special here, however it must be a popular place in Knoxville. It is crowded, have waited for about 20 minute.

Ate here twice and had a salad both times - delicious! Beer was good too. Had a short wait both times, but there are seats near the bar area as well that are nice to sit out and are quieter than the dining area.

Thank roamroam

We believe less processed food tastes better. Not only does it taste better, it's much healthier too. You'll notice this difference in our house made dressings and handcrafted pizzas, as well as in our colorful salads and sandwiches. Fresh produce from East Tennessee farmers like Hines Valley Farm, Mountain Meadows Farm and Colvin Family Farm is featured in our daily specials.

Well known for our vegan and vegetarian dishes, our menu has plenty for the carnivore. All of our proteins are nitrate/nitrite free, all natural and antibiotic free. Our house made lamb sausage is cooked in small batches to ensure freshness.

Our sister bakery, Flour Head Bakery, prepares all of the Tomato Head's desserts and breads (including gluten free!) Each morning. By using unbleached and unbromated King Arthur Flour, we create healthier and better tasting pizza dough and sandwich breads.

We also can easily accommodate your dietary needs. Whether it's a nut allergy, a preference for vegan fare or a gluten sensitivity, our staff will craft a dish to suit your tastes.
