Exploring the Menu at Tennessee Jed’s
Tennessee Jed’s offers a relatively narrow menu, but all of the items featured are well made. Swing by this restaurant for breakfast before setting out on one of the hiking trails in nearby Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Fuel up with a breakfast sandwich, biscuits and gravy, freshly made quiche, or muffins warm from the oven. Their brown butter mini cake is also a favorite, so even if you’ve eaten your fill, consider grabbing one to be enjoyed later on the trail.
For lunch, Tennessee Jed’s offers sandwiches, salads, hot dogs, and Frito pies. Choose among half a dozen sandwich options. They make an excellent Reuben, with braised corn beef, swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and Thousand Island dressing on toasted marble rye. The Cubano is also a favorite, with pulled Cuban pork, ham, swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard all stacked on a toasted bun. For a true indulgence, consider ordering one of Tennessee Jed’s famed Frito pies. This basket of Frito chips loaded with chili, cheese, sour cream, jalapeno, tomatoes, and onions is sure to have you licking your fingers! Sides such as fresh fruit, baked beans, fruit cup, pasta salad, coleslaw, and other daily specials are available to complement your meal. And families traveling with children will appreciate the separate kid’s menu, which features kid-approved favorites such as grilled cheese, BBQ sandwich, or hot dog, with a side and drink.
