We were ready for a late lunch when we hit Knoxville on our way to FL. I pulled out the AAA tour book and after flipping through the suggested restaurants, we decided on Calhoun's. It took us a little while to find the location on Kingston Pike (according to their web site it is the original location) but it was well worth the effort.
We both had a half slab of ribs which at $13.50 included two sides and a basket of mixed breads. Both my husband and I agreed that these were the best ribs we've ever had. The portion was very generous and both of us left stuffed. Matter of fact, we even skipped dinner that night.
There is no doubt that if we ever make our way through Knoxville again, we'll be stopping at Calhoun's for a meal.
