It would be hard to go hungry in Pigeon Forge! There are so many great places to eat. We tend to hit the local places and fill up on Southern yumminess.
We lucked up on a new restaurant in town during our last stay. JT Hannah’s Kitchen had only been open for two weeks. From the outside to the inside, the restaurant looks like and has an old warehouse feel. On the front of the building, there is some history about JT Hannah. He was a prosperous businessman from the Great Smoky Mountains who operated the largest freight warehouse and stockyards in East Tennessee.
We shared a wonderful appetizer of homemade chips and cheese sauce. Then, Peanut and Jellybean were more than thrilled with their fried mac-n-cheese bites. Dad had a nice, juicy Mexico City burger and I enjoyed a Tennessee pulled pork sandwich. The food was good and our service was exceptional.
For all you social media fans, we “liked” them on Facebook and got 10% off each of our adult entrées. It is always nice to save a little money! To top off our visit, we took of few pictures of the little divas posing around the restaurant. Jellybean pretended to be scared of the big black bear in the back that holds a barrel saying “will work for scraps!” Peanut just sat pretty by the water feature outside.
Another of our favorites is Mamas Farmhouse. We had eaten breakfast there many times, but had never had dinner there. An added bonus to going here, kids 5 and under eat free!
The dinner menu that day started off with our choice of vegetable soup or salad and some homemade biscuits and cornbread. Vegetable soup even enticed Peanut who usually doesn’t like to eat vegetables. Our main course came next and Jellybean just kept wondering when they were going to stop putting food on our table! We had fried chicken, meatloaf, pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, fried okra, green beans, mac-n-cheese, and sweet corn pie. It makes me hungry just remembering all of it. Of course, you have to sample a little bit of all of it. Then our cute little waitress dressed in her overalls asked us did we want banana pudding or peach cobbler with ice cream for dessert. They do not let you leave hungry here, that’s for sure!
Our favorite part of Mama’s Farmhouse is seeing all the families sitting around their tables eating family style. The “home” feel of this restaurant definitely keeps our family coming back!
