Caney Branch Restaurant
12140 Newport Hwy, Greeneville, TN 37743
I had heard about this little restaurant on the Newport Hwy.,
but had put off trying it because it was a bit out of the way.
We live in the city limits and usually just eat pretty close
to home. Well, we decided one evening to take the drive
and try Caney Branch Restaurant. Wow - we are so glad
we did !! As soon as you walk in, you feel right at home !
The staff greets you as if they have known you all their
lives and the atmosphere is country and comfy. But the
sight and smell of the buffet seal the deal. All-you-can-eat
fried chicken, real mashed potatoes, green beans with meat
for seasoning, sweet potato casserole, boiled cabbage with
just the right amount of hot pepper, yeast rolls, salads, and
the best blackberry cobbler you will ever find ! Are you hungry
yet ?!! That is just a sampling of what they offer at Caney
Branch Restaurant. We ended our first visit with a chat on
the front porch with the owner, who oddly enough we ended
up knowing. We have been back many more times and will
continue to enjoy "Just Like Grandma's" home cookin' !!
