Dining in Sevierville
Every restaurant we went to was a family style one, with free refills of sweet and unsweet iced tea, and menus full of many of the same items.
Here are some of Eastern Tennessee's own special menu items, which were consistently available everywhere we went. Fried green tomotoes, fried pickles, strawberry cake, apple fritters, corn nuggets (with creamed corn inside), country-fried steak, white gravy, barbecue with tomato-based sauce, lots of pancakes and big rolls of paper towels instead of cloth napkins.
I particularly enjoyed the spirit I saw in Clint's BBQ and Country Cookin' where the country pickin' (with Clint himself up on stage) got the patrons dancing and laughing. It was much more fun than any family restaurant I've ever been to, and the pulled pork was tangy and delicious. At the Diner, another favorite was the elk burger washed down with sweet tea. No booze in site, just a bunch of happy locals enjoying their fiddle music and BBQ.
