Best Krystal around. The only Krystal that has a Chrystal working there that I'm aware of. She is always smiling and happy to help.

Pretty good sandwich. Didn't really care about the sauce it really wasn't my thing, but overall pretty good po boy shrimp sandwich with a nice Roadie Dr. Pepper drink!

This is my stop for Krystals and fuel between Chatt and CLT. I prefer it to the one at the Pigeon Forge exit simply because it's so much easier to access and get back on the road again. And with the usually cheap fuel right there, it makes perfect sense for a stop. So the location is the hook here.... More

Addictive little soybean sammitches are in my Southern blood. And they used to have the very best cheap pancakes in town.

Having moved away from Krystal territory, I am always elated to see the first Krystal when I am heading into Tennessee. This particular Krystal is staffed by really nice people and they are always eager to help me get a senior deal. The hamburgers are what you would expect (and crave), the fries are delicious, and the new onion rings... More

Nasty little sliders basically. It was just a quick eats stop but we would not go there again. Food was not all that warm and at first we were actually given the wrong order.

Not as good as white castle but still a good treat while traveling in the south. Try the bacon cheeseburger and banana pudding milkshake.

I guess Krystal is an acquired taste. It's a White Castle style burger sliders kind of place. I like the chili and keep coming back to Tennessee just to go to Krystal for chili. Breakfast is cooked to order, not pre made off a shelf. 2 eggs, grits, sausage, toast - I think it's three bucks. Nice little fast food... More

Friday September 12, 2014 ... We like to try different places to eat so we thought we would try Krystal's. Sorry Krystal fans but the burgers are just gross! Greasy quarter size piece of thing and it might be meat on a small square bun with mustard, pickle, and I think some onion. This is a step under White Castle... More
