Discover East Tennessee
When you're looking for a place to eat in East Tennessee, you'll have plenty of locations from which to choose, especially if you're craving classic comfort foods. When you visit East Tennessee, there are several iconic dishes that you can't miss, such as fried fish, which is a meal that wouldn't be complete without hush puppies, fried chicken, and, of course, fried pickles. If all those fried foods didn't do the job of filling you up, or if you want a little something sweet to round off your dining experience, move on to dessert. Fried pies are an East Tennessee tradition, and nearly every restaurant has a secret recipe for banana pudding.
