Rutledge, TN anyone?

I'm going to be spending a couple of days in the Knoxville area. I've read through the whole Knoxville thread and gotten some good ideas. But I'm going to be spending a whole day up in Rutledge working. Any ideas on where I might get some lunch? I know it's a pretty rural area (and partly why I've decided to stay overnight in Knoxville), but is there something around worth seeking out?
 
Thanks!

    Wise to stay in Knoxville.  One of my favorite places a couple miles closer in to town on Magnolia St is The Phillipine Connection.  The food is outstanding and inexpensive.  There's only one table ( maybe two) so it's mostly a carryout but food is outstanding and plentiful.  Then,  just across the street is the Pizza Palace which was visited by Guy Fieri who raved about their pizza.  it's a drive-in so you eat in your car.  Pizza is excellent though.

    Rutledge is home to the famous tomato festival and is famous throughout the USA for their Grainger county tomatoes.  I believe that the field grown tomatoes are going down hill but perhaps some are still available.  They are outstanding.  If you have a way to transport them, I would suggest getting a bushel from the Ritter Farms located about 2-3 miles north of the town on the main route.

    Sundancer -- That's a great lead! Looks like they have lots of other stuff besides tomatoes, so I can pick up whatever looks good at the time.
    Thanks!

    All you need are the tomatoes, a loaf of bread, a jar of Mayo, a salt & pepper shaker and you have breakfast, lunch and dinner covered. (Bread & Mayo optional)
