The city has so much to offer for all ages that it is a shame not to get out and see all there is to see. Walk up and down the strip, step inside the quaint shops, and then find a place to nourish your body and rest your weary bones.
Fannie Farkle’s in Gatlinburg is one of the most well-known eateries in the area. It is popular with all ages and is not only known for its great food, but it an attraction in itself.

The food is simple and some say sinful at Fannie Farkle’s. Their signature dish is homemade foot long corndogs from their very own secret recipe. To add to the novelty, you get to watch them make the corndogs by hand while you devour yours. They also offer their super special smoked sausage sub complete with sautéed onions and peppers. To wash it all down, there are 12 flavors of Hawaiian shaved ice, Coca Cola products, sweet tea, and lemonade. Try them from a huge Fannie Farkle’s souvenir cup.

When you are done playing, redeem your points for prizes, or save them to add to points you win later on. Points never expire.
If you are not ready for all that fun at lunch, or if you enjoy it for lunch and want to come back for more, or even if you want it for breakfast, they are open from 8:00 in the morning until late in the evening. Stop in anytime you get tired of walking and need a break from the heat or cold, whatever the case may be. It is Gatlinburg’s number one way to kick back and relax when you are not ready to go back to your home away from home. Cabin rentals are a great place to get out of the hustle and bustle, but if you want a place to relax and still be in on all the action this is the place to be.
