Sgt.Pepper I know i'm bumping, but this is a small forum anyway, and i thought this would be helpful for people with the same question.



A veg*n resteraunt called Veg-O-Rama just opened up a few months ago.

marigrace I'd personally reccomend The Tomato Head...the kepner melt is amazing. and their vegan cupcakes are sooo good ^^



Tomo on Kingston Pike, while not exclusively veg, has really good veggie sushi and other vegetarian entrees. The Mellow Mushroom (2 locations: the Strip or Campbell Station) is a sweet pizza place that has many vegetarian options. Charlie Pepper's on the strip has some good options as well. Pelancho's Mexican Grille has a good veggie chimichanga and other veggie options (although I live in a suburb of Knoxville and personally prefer our Mexican restaurant, El Cantaritos :P ) Organic Roots Cafe on Kingston Pike is supposed to be good, even though I've never been. I'm looking at their menu right now and they seem to be 100% vegetarian and can serve raw.

Sorry that those two places weren't what you were looking for (Tomato Head and Sunspot). Well, best of luck on your trip and I hope you have a nice time in your night in Knoxville. I miss the place!



yup thats the one im talking about. Im thinking of giveing it a try

Wow the last place I thought I would ever see Knoxville mentioned.



I actually spent more than two years in Knoxville (earned my master's degree from UT - go Vols!), but I was not a vegetarian at a time so I am sorry to say I never went to those two places. But I will say that they both had pretty positive reputations and I'm sure you can't go wrong with either.

Mr. Sun Oh, a long road trip. That sounds like fun. But I can't help you with your question.
