Happy Monday everyone!
Saturday night, Kori, Matt, D and I went to a restaurant called The Local Goat (hopefully now the title makes sense bahaha) in Pigeon Forge. Kori had researched and found that it was highly rated and very poopular (any I Love Lucy fans out there?) so she made a reservation for us. Thank goodness she did because it was packed when we arrived! They had beautiful Christmas decor so immediately I was very pleased.We were placed in a very comfy booth with a good view of the SEC Championship. It was kind of painful to watch because I would have loved for both teams to lose but alas that can’t happen.
I decided on the shrimp and grits and D got some spicy wings. Both were delicious! My meal was super flavorful and the grits texture was perfect. The waitress informed us they make 99% of their items in-house from scratch including the ketchup and focus on using local items, which I think is very impressive.I couldn’t resist getting dessert so I got the bourbon maple pecan sundae that I split with D and kor.So if you are in the Knoxville area and are wanting to eat somewhere new we all highly recommend checking this place out!
