There’s a new challenger to the throne amongst Knoxville’s burger royalty, and this one is a real game changer. All-natural and hormone free beef raised just up the road in Blaine will come dressed up with Sweetwater valley cheese and, it almost goes without saying, Allen Benton’s bacon. But what really stands out on this menu are things that aren’t beef: a salmon burger, lamburger and shrimp burger, as well as imaginative sides and appetizers like Waffle Iron Mac n’ Cheese, Duck Confit Fries, and Blue [cheese] Fondue Kettle Chips. It will take effort to save room for a Nutella or Salted Caramel shake and Deep Fried Apple Pie. Open daily, 11 a.m. till "close."

From YUMMM!, the Metro Pulse restaurant guide:

In the great American backyard experience, the mention of grilling burgers means a lot more than just an outdoor cooking experience. It’s code for a celebration of family, friends, and maybe even the whole block. That ethos is the foundation of Stock & Barrel, and it touches every aspect of this new burger and Bourbon joint.

The creators of Market Square’s freshest face have committed themselves to celebrating the goodness of this community in many ways. They’ve created a space with the kind of welcoming atmosphere that is the hallmark of downtown Knoxville. Whether you’re on a date night, hanging out with friends, or breaking bread with the grandparents, Stock and Barrel offers a warm and inviting place to keep company.

And it’s a fun spot, too: If you like to give your gatherings a little kick, this place offers an array of the finest brown liquors in the South with Bourbons of every stripe, from the small batch to the big name. Sure, there’s a full bar so you don’t have drink Bourbon, but it’s a shame to pass on all those new experiences. Stock and Barrel even brings a new twist to the All American ice cream beverage with a devilishly clever menu of milkshake temptations.

But as good as those shakes are, Stock and Barrel is really about the many faces of the burger. In keeping with their pledge to source and serve as much local fare as possible, this restaurant promises something in a locavore vein that you don’t see just everywhere: local beef. Mitchell Family Farms is located just up the road in Blaine, and that’s where it’s been for six generations. They provide the essence of Stock and Barrel’s offering with beef that’s natural and pasture-raised, with no added hormones or antibiotics, on a traditional family farm that pre-dates the Civil War.

When you start with something that good, there’s a mandate to treat it right—and that’s just what Stock and Barrel does. Even though some of their offerings walk the wild side, they all succeed—even the strangely delicious Elvis Burger, which is topped with organic peanut butter, fried bananas, and Benton’s bacon. In addition to beef, you’ll find burger options to keep everybody happy: There’s lamb, buffalo, chicken, turkey, salmon, and shrimp. That makes for an outstanding burger selection—the kind that you just don’t find everyday.

Stock and Barrel may offer a lot more options than you find at a backyard grill, but the sense of community, bonding, and plain old good times is just the same.
