The Lunchbox is your one-stop shop for delicious homestyle, quality lunches and catering options. Gather for breakfast,lunch, or snacks in their comfortable markets, then take home dinner ready to heat and serve. 

We are celebrating 40 years serving Knoxville, and what keeps customers coming back is simple – 

“The formula hasn’t changed.” We stay true to founder Karen Sproles recipes, which continue to be the heartbeat and foundation of The Lunchbox. The signature chicken salad, soups, fresh sandwiches, and ready-to-go desserts have always been a major draw. Our downtown Market Manager, Josephine, has been with The Lunchbox for too many years to count and has been making these “tried and true” recipes from scratch for more than 20 years. 

Rhonda, our Market Manager at The Atrium, has taken customer service to the next level, greeting customers daily with smiles and gratitude. We continue to offer homestyle, quality foods that people keep coming back to, and our mission is to stay consistent in honoring The Lunchbox legacy. 

Daily menu specials include our fresh made sandwiches and wraps, pimento cheese, chicken enchiladas, pumpkin muffins, chicken gumbo, Italian cream cake, box lunches with a side and dessert, and Knoxville’s favorite chicken salad. 

Our Bearden location also offers Take & Bake Meals – family meals made from scratch, served fresh from your oven. Call us 24 hours in advance and your order will be ready to go! 

Expect friendly, efficient service and the favorites Knoxville has loved for 40 years without sacrificing time and nutrition. Come see us at The Lunchbox!
