The Pizza At This Delicious Tennessee Eatery Is Bigger Than The Table
Pizza is the everyman’s food. Whether you’re indulging from a high rise in New York City or picking up an order to go in the rolling hills of Tennessee, it’s the kind of food that brings all sorts of people together. Although here in the south we’d argue to just fry up a chicken – but we digress. Knoxville, Tennessee has managed to mesh some of the best pizza in the state with one of the biggest, and we had to go visit – have you ever been to Empire Pizza?
Empire Pizza is located on the eastern side of the state in Knoxville, Tennessee. The low-key eatery brings NYC to the south with its solid attention-to-slice-detail and has become a local favorite.
Their local trivia night is always popular, but that's not too difficult to believe. With a slice of something salty and cheesy in hand, we feel smarter already!
The fun decor truly sets this funky eatery apart, but you can also indulge on the go at the Empire Pizza Food Truck.
Pizza, salads and pasta adorn the menu, making this the perfect spot for anyone in your party. There's nothing more American than gathering around the table with a solid slab of food, ready to laugh and drink your way into a Saturday night.
But wait - what about the pizza the size of the table?! Normal-sized pizzas are definitely the most commonly ordered at Empire, but if you're up for a challenge they have a few tricks up their sleeve.
The 28" Pizzilla and the Kong 36" pizzas are available for $50 and $100, respectively, payable if you don't manage to successfully eat the entirety of the meal with a friend within an hour.
Then of course, you could always stick to a regular-sized pizza. There's no shame in the pizza game, folks. As long as you come in hungry and leave full, you can't lose!
You can order a big ol' pizza pie for yourself at 10420 Kingston Pike in Knoxville, Tennessee, from 11am to 9pm Monday through Thursday, 11am to 10pm on Fridays and from 12pm to 10pm on Saturdays. Keep in mind - they're closed on Sundays!
This retro diner in Tennessee is also pretty neat, once you recover from your pizza coma!
