What a find. In town visiting our daughter and granddaughter, looking for the local places to eat. This was exactly what we wanted. The food was the best and service also. Highly recommend.

This is and everyday stop for a lot of hard working people in Kingsport for breakfast and lunch. Great Food. Like going back to a 1960's diner. Rustic, and yes it is at the Kingsport Livestock Market , expect to see real cowboys!

It's hard to believe that Kingsport still has an actual stockyard where livestock is bought and sold a couple of times a week. If you actually want to go to the stockyard, this restaurant is on the premises and I understand it has hamburgers, fries,...More
