We have lived in Knoxville for 9 years and had never been to Litton's until this week. I had heard good things about it, and it felt like a mandatory visit if we are to call ourselves Knoxvillians. We entered the restaurant for an early dinner on a Saturday and quickly got a table and a highchair. I liked the... More

This restaurant is fun. You sign in on a chalkboard with the number in your party and then wait comfortably, watching the big screen TVs until you are called. Everyone was very friendly and efficient. The food was super.

Litton's is an old favorite if you are looking for the best burger in town. Fries are great and the Red Velvet cake is wonderful if you have room for it.

This gem in Fountain City has legendary hamburgers and desserts. Don't miss a piece of one of their cakes even if you have to take it to go. Busy during lunch and dinner so hit it before or after peak dining times.

My wife and I found ourselves in Fountain City around lunch time and decided to try Litton's again. Just like previous visits, the service was great, the fry's crispy and the burgers cook just right! Though the deserts look delicious, we restrained ourselves and saved some time on the ole treadmill later that afternoon. Service has always been a hallmark... More
