Have eaten at Puleo's on East side for years and tried this one. Good enough that we ate at the East side Puleo's on the way home from this trip.
Friendly staff, good menu selection, digested the meal well, salads are good, consistently good meal after meal, year after year.
Not a new place, perhaps could use a refresh, but well maintained and clean.
I would recommend.

Came back again with a friend. We were seated promptly and our server was right there for our drink order. We made our decisions and placed our orders. The wait time was minimal and the food was great. Prices were reasonable. A good place to eat!

We stopped overnight while traveling on a Saturday in Knoxville and asked at our hotel for a recommendation. We were not looking for a big night out, just a peaceful meal before turning in for the night. Puleo's was the first recommendation and could have not hit the mark any better. It was convenient to a cluster of hotels along I-75, and while busy, we did not have to wait. I had the Schrod which was excellent, and my wife had a pasta dish that she raved about. Good service at a fair price.

We went to this Puleo's because it was near by our motel, and we wound up having a great meal, huge portions, very reasonably priced, and quite friendly. The restaurant was mostly empty after 8:30 on a Tuesday night, but the service was efficient and welcoming. We both had enormous kale salads. Very fresh and crisp and satisfying even though the dressing was a little sweet. We really didn't need anything else to eat, but my husband had fried green tomatoes, which he rated as very good, and also a generous serving. He also had tuna tacos, and found the tuna quite good (plus ginger slices and wasabi), but the taco shell was below par. I had the tuna dinner, properly rare, large piece of quality tuna, excellent asparagus and sensational & unique cole slaw, with red & white cabbage, sunflower seeds, and a few bits of fried linguine. Wow, what a satisfying combination and not swimming in mayo. The beer and wine were also good and, again, a very generous pour on the wine. We were delighted and would definitely return next time we come through Knoxville.
