Long time reader, first time poster.
Last night a buddy of mine and I started talking about a thread on here about pizza in Knoxville. Well our evening led us to Blue Chips (127 Montvue Rd Knoxville, TN 37919 865-690-1763). We both have eaten there before and really went back for their homemade potato chips. Sunday nights their pizza is on sale for $7.50 for a large one topping. After our afternoon discussing this very topic we decided to "bite" and tried their pepperoni. We both came to a shocking realization that, to us, Blue Chips may have the best pizza in Knoxville. I know that I wouldn't believe it either but I thought it was so good that I actually signed up to roadfood.com just to tell others.
Highlights: Crisp thin crust with level crisp edges. Spicy tomato sauce, one of the few pizzas I've eaten that needed no crushed peppers to bring flavor to a usually bland taste. Pepperoni, these were large slices about the size of salami, and had fresh pepperoni taste that is usually lost in the packages from the grocery store. They make their own dough.
Cons: Only on special on Sunday's rest of the week it's price is $12.00. Also I can't make it over there to get another one right now.
Note; Blue Chips is a bar and it tends to get really smoky. I suggest going earlier than later and Monday nights is 10 cent wing night so they are usually really crowded.
I look forward to contributing more to roadfood.com in the future.
