One of my favorite things about Knoxville is the food scene.  My wife and I like to try a new restaurant three or four times a month.  We’ve been doing this ever since we moved to Knoxville, and we still have hundreds of more restaurants to discover.

We recently found this funky place in the Old City called Curious Dog.  This funky place has an even funkier menu filled with hot dogs, sandwiches and loaded fries.  Every item on the menu is named after a famous person or a Hollywood character.

My wife had the Pipeline hotdog. This dog comes with grilled pineapple, bacon, jalapeños, honey bbq sauce, tots and cheese.  She was blown away by the flavors of that hotdog.

I had the Tony Soprano, and it was so good. This sandwich comes with salami, capicola, pepperoni, provolone cheese, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, banana peppers, white sauce and herb olive oil on sourdough. You have to try this sandwich when you visit Curious Dog.

Curious Dog also has a huge section of canned, bottle and draft beer.  You will have a blast eating, drinking and enjoying the walls decorated with guitars, bicycles and cool signs they’ve collected over the years.  Curious Dog is family owned, and you will also feel like family when you drop in.  Curious Dog is located at 200 Jackson Avenue, Knoxville, TN 37902, and you can call them at (865) 544-9997.
