I think Joe is in a suburb of Nashville, as am I. I don't talk like that, so maybe you know these people and that is how they talk. I actually have only driven through Knoxville. There are veggie options, I'm sure. I think they have a J. Alexanders, they have great salads and a veggie burger to die for but I don't know if it's vegan. (Haven't been there in a while.) TGI Fridays has a grilled veggie sandwich, just ask for it without the cheese. If I think of anything else I will post it.
