I think one of the best kept secrets in Morristown is Ronnie's Restaurant on Morningside. My husband and I will miss it when he moves to Cherokee Drive. But we will still visit, but unfortunately we won't be able to walk to it!

North Cumberland St has the most polite drivers in Morristown.

Perhaps this doesn't qualify as a best-kept secret, but I've been shocked by the number of people who don't eat at Fuji Sushi because they think it's simply a sushi bar...

For sushi lovers, their Dragon Roll is excellent, but also try some of their other odd rolls like grilled asparagus or grilled tofu rolls.

For those who don't like sushi (like my wife), they also have great hibachi and a damn fine Japanese Curry Katsu.

My wife's fave is the ginger dressing on their salads.

We ate there Saturday evening and the food was excellent as usual and the service was above average (actually STELLAR for his town).

I agree. We like Fuji Sushi also. I got the hibachi chicken, but I wish they would add some spicy foods to the menu. Their hibachi dishes are fairly healthy, not floating in oil like other japanese take out hibachis.
I like sushi (cooked) but not sushimi (raw). California roll is my favorite, with cooked crab and avacado.

I like how the Baptists dont recognized each other in Chuck's Package Store.

Anyone else miss the Gulf gas station market out on 11E. Used to be accross form Alpha Elementary when Alpha was still there? They had the BEST cheeseburgers in town.

East Tennessee wings and grill have the best wings around. The burgers are good. They are on West A.J. Hwy.

I guess my own personal secret is right in front of everyone's eyes. When I lived there, my favorite thing to do was to get to Frank Lorino Park early in the morning. I would park down by the old Shuck pavillion and walk through that path off into the woods. At a certain time in the morning the sun rises at a point where the light starts to shine through the trees, casting long shadows in the twilight of the morning. Plus, there is almost never anyone there at that time in the morning. It's as quiet as nothing you have ever heard.(That is, until the traffic picks up on Morris Boulevard, the grounds crew start up their mowers and other people start pulling into the park...)

But for a few minutes it's beautiful and quiet. It's actually quite magical. Not much of a secret to anyone but it's pretty to me!

I REMEMBER! It has been 40 years ago since I first moved to Morristown to teach/coach at East High. The Blue Circle did have the Biggest & Best burgers around. With all of the other good places there are to eat now, I wonder if we would still think so highly of the Giant Blue Circle Burgers? I think so.

I remember the Blue Circle, too. Didn't they have an old telephone handset you picked up to place your order? I bet if we could get one of those old burgers, it would taste very different from the beef we get today. They probably didn't inject the cattle with so many things back then.

I'm 36 and the first memory I have of the Blue Circle was that Time-Out Deli was occupying the place. I can remember it was the first time I ever ate such a kick-ass sandwich. I'd go to the Blue Circle in Bristol just to have the fries if they're as good as you say they are, Nasty Ned. I am totally addicted to fries!

Just Sayin, back in the late 80's / early 90's, my brother put an entire bottle of dish washing liquid in the same fountain. I am surprised to see no one pulling that same prank these days in Morristown.

Has anyone ever hiked that 2 mile trail in Panther Creek Park that eventually leads to that outcropping overlooking Cherokee Lake? It's not really a secret since the trail is very well marked. But I have hiked it a fedw times and never saw anyone else on the same trail. Even though every time I hiked it there were horse hoof marks everywhere.

I personally like going fishing right off three springs road in russellville. Not alot people use it now doe to the houses and building going on in the area. But when i did go. It was a very quite spot. Also going right across the olen marshall bridge later in the evening was another past time while a youngster. Would generally load up the family and take some supper. Watching the boats and fishermen as they came in for the evening. The good old days !

I think one of our best kept secrets is our down town area. I grew up in Morristown, been here 42 years now and I remember when downtown was a thriving business area. I kinda like the way it's headed but there's still a lot to be done. Probably the worst thing that happend was the old Princess Theater being torn down. I wished someone would have bought it and restored the old theater. You would think our city would have jumped in and done soemthing about it but I guess no one really cared at the time. It would have been a great place to have concerts and play old movies like they do at The Tennessee Theater in Knoxville. Too many of the old buildings downtown are being torn down and replace with new shopping centers instead of being brought back to life. There's just something about the feel and smell of the old buildings. Anyone remember the old L&W cafe, The Cottage, Petros newstand(spelling ?) My uncle use to own the Daffodil Bakery and I worked there when I was a kid. Nothing like fresh dounuts out of the glazing pot.

The old Hasson Bryant Hardware store was one of my favorite places to go when I needed something for the house. I live on the west end and I would drive by Lowes just so I could go into town and buy what I needed at the old hardware store. I'll third the Blue Circle, it was a great place for a burger and fries.

The other secret is Cherokee Lake. I've been on Douglas lake a few times but there's nothing like all the islands on Cherokee. You can pull up to about any bank and spend the day relaxing in the water or on the bank. TVA owns all the land on and around Cherokee so it's public property. On Douglas all the land is privately owned so you have to be careful where you bank your boat. Even the islands are privately owned.

Hamblen county is a great place to live, wouldn't trade it for any place in the world.
