I just learned after a recent visit again to this wonderful family resurante that the doors have been open for over 50 years! Not only that, most of their servers and cashiers have been working there for 30 plus years! I love this place because the service is amazing, the food is always hot, there is way more food than...

Walked over to the sunset and they seat us in the second room (walk in room go through a door into second room). It was a little dimmer in this room so I like it! Started off with a salad & Cole slaw which were just average nothing special! Catfish was over cooked in my opinion but his ribeye steak... More

One of my favorite restaurants, we eat here frequently. Food is always hot and delicious and generous quantities. The Broasted Chicken is OUTSTANDING! Love going for lunch on Sundays, you may have to wait but it won't be long.

We always stop here when we travel on I-40 to E. Tn. Excellent food and service. We usually go for the Meat with 3 home cooked vegs but also have enjoyed the huge bowl of salad, chicken livers(not me), and catfish. This restaurant is winning awards for their fare so they have quite the following. Must try!

We were a party of five, and they were very busy. However, we were seated quickly. Server greeted us and took order promptly. The chicken and ham plates were great. Veggies were good. Part of our party order the steak. I would have given a five star, but the steak was just okay. Maybe steaks should only be ordered at... More

This place serves food like you cook at home. The meals are great with the perfect seasoning allowing for someone to add a little more to make the meal their own. Their fried okra and cream corn are the best, then the desserts are out of this world.

Not sure how we have missed this local gem. A simple meat and three for 7.50 a plate. Great homemade desserts. Obviously a grt place for the locals. We will be back!

Just visited the sunset restaurant in Lebanon , Tn. I love off-beat, kitschy places to eat when traveling; however, this was not so great. I will give the broasted chicken 2 stars, but I prefer really dry, crunchy chicken, and this was great for me. The sides I ordered would probably have been tasty; however, they were lukewarm. We all... More

It is hard these days to find a good local restaurant that has been there for a long time. Chain restaurants are the rule but there are still a few left and this is one. I was in the area with a friend who remembered having enjoyed this place and knowing that I love good fried chicken brought me here... More
