At Puleo’s Grille, the belief is that a great dining experience with amazing foods doesn’t have to be expensive. Inside the doors of this incredible eatery, you will find an unusual but delightfully tasty blend of traditional Italian dishes prepared and served with true Southern flair. Named “Best Overall Restaurant” and “Best New Restaurant” in Eastern and Middle Tennessee multiple times along with earning numerous “Best Chef” awards, this is truly a dining experience you can’t afford to miss.
Come in Hungry Leave Delighted
Whether you are dropping by for a quick business lunch, bringing your date for dinner, or simply looking for some truly great food, you can find it all here at Puleo’s. Best of all, the entire menu has been designed to be affordable, no matter what time of day you happen to come in for a meal.
The menu is best described as being a unique fusion of Southern favorites and traditional Italian dishes. The team here likes to refer to their dishes as Southern Comforts that are served alongside the finest quality steaks and seafood available anywhere in the state of Tennessee. Puleo’s Grille has a very simple philosophy of providing “exceptional food and service, one plate and one customer per time.”
Grand Opening in 2002
The first of five Puleo’s Grilles opened in Knoxville, TN back in 2002. Their goal was to provide their customers with the same level of service they would expect from any restaurant. The ‘come as you are’ casual dining experience can seem a bit odd once you get a good look at the menu and the incredible quality of food that is served here.
Not only have the chefs here won a number of “Best Chef” awards since opening, but in 2013 they earned the “Top Chef in Knoxville Award.” Inside you will find comfortable booths, free standing tables, and a warm and inviting atmosphere. The grille is the perfect place for a business lunch, dinner with your family or friends, or virtually any special occasion. They can cater to a large or small group with plenty of room for everyone.
Not Just Meat and Pasta
While steaks, seafood, and pasta are the mainstays of the menu at Puleo’s there is something for everyone here. The vegetarian menu includes a delightful selection of appetizers, salads, and gluten-free pasta dishes. You can even order a vegetarian pizza for lunch or dinner. Puleo’s also serves filet mignon, baby back ribs, grilled ahi tuna, and more.
