Don Eduardo’s

1202 N Kentucky St
Kingston, 37763
Reviews:
We decided to try this place out and I'm glad we did. The food was great. Everything came out hot and promptly. Our waiter, who I believe may have been the owner or manager, was nice and joking with us and our kids! We had a great lunch experience and this will definitely be one of our go-to restaurants.
We live in the same city as Don Eduardo's but do not eat here that often due mostly to inadequate parking. However the times I have eaten here or gotten takeout I was very pleased with what I had ordered. The food was delicious and the staff was friendly. I will definitely be eating here again soon.
Don Eduardo's has some of the best Mexican food I've ever eaten. I have traveled a lot along the US/Mexico border, and Don Eduardo's has these places beat. The food is somewhat traditional Mexican along with some American touches. The serving size is typical american for sure. I just ate there this weekend with my aunt and cousin from Houston, and they said it was every bit as good as the excellent places they're used to eating at. Everything is good, and occasionally they'll bring you off menu items that they have cooked up for the day. Also, the LARGE margarita is the best in the world. The smaller one's use a different mix and may be pre-made, whereas the large's use top shelf ingredients and their own lime mix. Anyway, they're terrific, and maybe a little strong!

Whitestone Country Inn

1200 Paint Rock Rd
Kingston, 37763
Reviews:
The second leg of our recent Tennessee trip also involved construction, and as such we felt quite at home - it seems that we almost always see the little signs telling us to avoid a particular lane. Someone was smiling here, however, as the construction started just after we had to turn off to get to the inn - so we only had to see the signs warning of the construction, not actually do anything because of it. If you are looking for a place that is convenient, be warned that this is probably not it. No easy on, easy off here - you are going to have to exit the freeway and then drive for a while. It is a fairly nice, scenic drive, but it is a bit of a hike. Well worth it, however, as you end up either in the middle of nowhere or right next to it, perched on the side of a lake (river, something). The property actually contains several buildings, each of which then contain multiple rooms. Your package may contain dinner (probably a good idea since there is not much in the way of food offerings nearby), and you also get breakfast, though it is not a traditional bed-and-breakfast - way more than someone's house here, though you most certainly receive the attention as if it is a smaller place with just one or two guests.
This is one of the most charming country B&Bs I've ever seen. A little country inn it is NOT. It is a sprawling property in the most idyllic scenery on the shores of the Tennessee River, and has ten or so meticulously maintained cottages, houses and even land for sale. It has the honor of being one of America's Inns of Distinction, and solidly deserves that reputation. Everything here was in order and absolutely impeccable. The Whitestone is owned by very religious (Christian) people and it makes no bones about its orientation. Nevertheless, is a most welcoming place for all people of all walks of life. Entering the several thousand-acre property, one goes through a carriage house and then up a hill to an old schoolhouse for check-in. There are golf carts, things to do for the kids, things to do for adults, and the meals are absolutely wonderfully prepared, down country cooking with a classy touch. An amazing place. Steps away from Knoxville, the Smokies, not far from Nashville and Chattanooga The perfect place to relax
Pleasant reservation process and initial discussion with hotel staff. Stayed in the Chickadee Suite. Had EXCELLENT dinner and EXCELLENT breakfast w/ the most insanely good blackberry turnovers. Food is out of sight. Would go back for that alone (and many people apparently do). Recipes for many dishes are on-line. Wonderfully congenial host, who made our 11-year old nephew feel comfortable. Good activities, although we only had time to hit some golf balls into the small pond. (It's OK - you're supposed to do that. Not an environmental issue.) Probably a great place for 3-4 days of down time. We stayed in the Chickadee Suite, which is pleasant enough, but is completely carpeted. Due to allergies, we need a wood floor room. We'll inquire about that next time. Note that there is nothing wrong with the Chickadee Suite - it's just that we are unusually susceptible to dust and the like.

Mama Mia’s Restaurant & Pizzeria

705 W Race St
Kingston, 37763
Reviews:
This is the first place I head to when I am anywhere near Knoxville, TN. When you Enter Mama Mia's, you feel like you have walked into a time capsule with their classic decor, straight forward menu, push button jukebox, and a monster of a pizza oven. Everything seems super fresh and I was told all the dough, sauces, sausage and even their cookies are done in house by this pint-sized fire cracker of German woman. She's been the owner and running the show since the early 70's according to their menu. You can't miss her when you walk in. The pies seems fairly euro style which is perfect because I like a crunchy crust without being too thin or thick. The most unique pizza is without a doubt their spicy Italian sausage and sauerkraut with onion (I would NOT get this to-go). It seemed a bit odd when I read it but it is a taste bud explosion. I truly love this joint and wish I was in area more to enjoy it. BTW This place is cash only. I asked the lady why she didn't take credit cards and she told me in an accent, "You want me to start charging my customers more for pizza?" I said it couldn't be that much more and she waved me off like I was crazy. Anyhow, it could be that she doesn't want to raise her prices or it could be this joint is REAL old School where cash and a hand shake are king. Either way, I dig it and hitting an ATM on the way in is no big deal.
Pizza was home style which is awesome and a much needed break from the chain places. I asked for two toppings (bacon and hot peppers, my favorite) and they had neither. No worries they proved me with banana peppers that they usually use on their subs and aren't on the menu. This place could really use a menu online but everything was great and home style.
Great pizza. Mama Mia's has been around since 1971. Fantastic sauce and crust. Try the sauerkraut and sausage pizza.

Handee Burger

407 N Kentucky St
Kingston, 37763
Reviews:
One of the last remaining "original" businesses in my little hometown during my lifetime. Kingston has slowly grown over the decades and it's often joked about that Knoxville will eventually just bleed right on into it and suck it into its bowels as well. But that's another story. Handee Burger is a one of a kind stain that just won't go away. Their specialty is burgers that do their best to ape White Castle and any of its myriad spinoffs. The problem is that these burgers aren't known as "gut bombs" for nothing They're about as bad as you can get, with grease apparently being the main ingredient, with godawful onions following that, and then finally the beef itself. This is one of those places where you get a bag full of burgers and by the time you get home, your car seat is greased up and the bag your food is in is near transparent thanks to, you guessed it, all that delicious grease. I remember trying the fish sandwich there as well one time. What a bad idea that was. If I think even further back, I also remember getting a high score on their Asteroids machine, and seeing "Stars on 45" on the jukebox that was there at the time. One of the last times I ate at Handee Burger, it wound up coming back up on me a short time later. It wasn't surprising, then, when an acquaintence I knew wound up working there and getting food poisoning due to unclean utensils, and all that wonderful grease. As far as I'm concerned, Handee Burger should be bronzed right there on the spot and the community of Kingston instantly relieved from any more of its gastro nightmares.
Great local handburger joint w/ a lot of other options. Food comes out fast and hot every time. I would recommend it highly and with the only other review on here being negagtive i'd let the food and service speak for themselves.
I may be biased because I haven't been to Kitrell's Kitchen on Gallahar Rd. but Handee breakfast is the best in Kingston. By far better than any of the fast food places.

Copeland’s of Kingston

104 Martin St
Kingston, 37763
Reviews:
Funky little restaurant just off 40. So much better than stopping at a fast food chain. Fried Oreos were fantastic!
Only had breakfast here but it was done in a classic diner style and was well received as such. Nothing to write home about but also nothing to avoid. So if your looking for a decent place for food and want to support a local family owned business I recommend it for just that.
Set the Mood: Listen to Ronnie Milsap's "Lost in the 50s Tonight" while you lace up your saddle shoes or white bucks or penny loafers and get ready for an auditory and gastronomic trip back in time. Set the Scene: Copeland's of Kingston is located on Martin Street, a narrow side street just South of I-40, in Kingston, TN. It is a throwback to the early days of rock and roll diners--late 50s and early 60s. With checkerboard floor and table cloths and the walls filled with nostalgic posters from the 50s, the air is filled with the sounds of Elvis, The Beach Boys (not really 50s, but retro enough), and other classic rock music legends. The smells of tasty morsels just short of déjà vu overload waft through the interior. Set the Table: The menu is loaded with lots of familiar-sounding breakfast, lunch, and dinner-diner-delectables made with traditional Vienna franks, and famous Ditka Chicago meats. Their cheesesteak is almost legendary and they cannot keep up with the demand for their Reubens (often run as a special on the weekends). Start the Action: We actually stopped in to try the hot dogs and they did not disappoint. The Chicago Dog was nearly perfect, save for the bun that got slightly mushy after a few bites ... (too much steam or relish overload?) No matter, the flavors and textures were right on point. I also tried a "basic dog" (The Cart Dog) to give Copeland's a true test of their authenticity. This puppy is a Vienna link on a soft bun, topped with yellow mustard, sauerkraut, and Red Onion Sauce. Winner, winner, winner weiner and absolutely top-rate in flavors with a standard Vienna dog, mild mustard, tangy kraut and ....wait for it...a house-made onion relish (they call sauce) that was " Yummy Umami" on a bun. The grilled onions had a beautiful caramelization and were simmered in a savory, slightly sweet yet tangy sauce. Oh my! Right Alongside: Lightly seasoned, house-made chips were good when they first arrived at the table, but soon began to lose their crispiness (not entirely unexpected). However the winner for sides was the "Corn Nuggets." I asked the waitress (a very pleasant and very attentive young woman) if they were like fritters or hushpuppies. She said she really didn't know except that "They have creamed corn inside"). Well, they indeed were a fritter-puppy combo with sweet corn kernels inside and a crisp crust exterior. They were served piping hot and stayed hot throughout the meal. Definitely a top-rate recommendation from me. Finale: A chocolate malt accompanied by homemade lemon-merengue pie...oh my! Wrap-up: The place was not a knock your bobby-sox off juke-joint, but certainly well worth more than one visit.

Red Bones On The River

316 W Race St
Kingston, 37763
Reviews:
Calamari appetizer tasted like frozen food I could have bought at Kroger. Lunch was much better. Great Ruben and fish and chips. Fries where good. With such a great location all they need to do is step up the food and make it more consistent.
A great restaurant~we had grilled ribeye steak, crab cakes, and fried oyster as an appetizer. The ribeye is awesome, we love it! For crab cakes, a little bit salty but still taste good. For sides, we love sautéed onion and mushroom and steamed broccoli, their onion rings are juicy! If you come during the day time, you can also see the nice view to the river. Do I recommend this restaurant? Absolutely!!
Awesome spot across the street from and overlooking watts bar lake in Kingston. Surprisingly extensive menu including a nice seafood selection. The prices range from $7 sandwiches to $18 steaks and everything in between. I had the pork chop with mashed potatoes and spinach maria. All of it was great! They also have a full bar and balconies over looking the lake. Definitely go here if you are ever in Kingston!

Well I love Hardee's breakfast and this is no exception, but the young lady who was running the register was upset that they were so busy (which in this small town is a really good thing). My sausage, egg, and cheese biscuits were delicious amd well put together. Tastey, cheap, buy angry service put me off.

Buddy’s Bar B Q

417 N Kentucky St
Kingston, 37763
Reviews:
Buddy's is by no means the best BBQ I've ever had, but it is a delicious alternative to mcdonalds or hardees if you are staying in the area. They have really good pulled pork and chicken. The ribs were cooked fresh but I've never been a fan of pork ribs so they left a little for me to be desired. The hushpuppies were a little drier than I prefer but I still ate them all so what does that say. I don't think they had a bad side dish from what we tasted and the food came out hot and quick. The girl behind the counter was super friendly and very helpful to noobies to Buddy's and I appreciated her excitement for their food. Their normal bbq sauce was mostly sweet while their hot sauce reminded me of a carolina vinegar sauce. Overall, Buddy's is a great stop for lunch if you are looking to pass on a standard fair fast food chain on your drive down route 40 thru kingston.
Good thing I didn't read some of the reviews first... Bldg looked in testing & clean so I stopped. Everything was really good. Had 1/2 chicken dinner & a 1/2lb of ribs (by the lb). Really liked the hush puppies too (crunchy :-) Definitely will be back.
One of the sorriest meals I've ever had. The same was said by my guest. Either they were having their worst night ever, or the folks who gave it good reviews have never had good barbecue. First of all, the girl that took our order (and as someone else said, this is a "fast food" type BBQ joint; you give your order at the counter), acted as if she was miserable. Then the food, oh my......If the Pulled Pork is "pulled", then they must use tweezers to pull it. It was minced, and it looked and tasted like something that came from the local grocers freezer. The beef brisket....to say it looked and tasted like cheap, thin sliced deli meat, cut into strips, with barbecue sauce dumped on it, would be kind. The barbecue beans tasted like they came out of a can with more of the nasty barbecue sauce dumped on it. Even the coleslaw was bad. How do you mess up coleslaw?!?!? To be fair, the one good thing was the potato salad. And the hush puppies were edible. But nothing else was. We literally went to Hardee's after leaving there to get something to eat. And for a place to be worse than Hardee's is saying a lot!
