S & S is always busy, and for good reason. The food is always very good, fresh and plentiful. I favor the vegetable plate. They have great squash, fried okra, beans and turnip greens with cornbread, but the roast beef, fried chicken and fish selections are always good. Servers come around constantly to refresh your coffee, tea and water so... More

Took my 90-year old aunt and my parents for lunch. The food was presented very nice and everything looked appealing. The ticketing lady at the end was pleasant, efficient and got an assistant to help my aunt. Once we were seated, the server came immediately and brought extra napkins and vinegar for my parents to enjoy over greens. It was... More

Our tour group of 18 stopped here for lunch. The food was average and fine. The line attendants did a fine job serving what you requested. The pricing of the veggie sides was curious with a Plate/ group costing $6.29 for four, when they were $1.50 individually.??? The problem was paying to leave. I managed to go to the Nursery... More

While cafeterias are not the most popular eateries, this S&S Cafeteria gives cafeterias a good reputation. My wife and I eat there a couple of times a month and are always pleased with the choices and the quality of the meals. The service is excellent, and the prices are very good. We used to go very rarely, but something happened... More

The servers at the food line were very helpful. Food portions were large and special selections were $7.50 with meat and 2 vegs. Some meats had a side included. Country style steak came with rice.

I discovered this cafeteria many years ago, and also really enjoy their Greenville SC location. If we are traveling around Knoxville we always try to stop by for a meal. I'm not sure what my favorite is, but I've never been disappointed with anything I've tried. The Mexican cornbread is definitely worth trying. The staff is always friendly and helpful.... More

A real old-fashioned cafeteria with excellent service and decent, home-style cooking. The fried chicken was crisp and golden, although the mashed potatoes were of the instant-variety. The squash casserole was tasty, and so was the apple pie. We will definitely return.
