Pizza Palace: Knoxville, Tennessee’s Pizza Drive-In
When Pizza Palace opened in 1961, it was probably the first time many Tennesseans had eaten pizza from a drive-in, and in some cases, pizza in general. While there are pizzerias all over the South, a pizza drive-in is still pretty unique....
Beyond the tasty pizza and unique setting there are other charms to Pizza Palace. There is a sense of pride and fraternity amongst the staff and a genuine friendliness, rather than a manufactured hospitality you might find at a chain restaurant. And there is a real sense of tradition, almost 50 years on the ethos of fresh, quality food continues. Here’s to the next half century.
