The locavore movement is quickly building throughout the Smoky Mountains, with tourists and residents alike demanding foods produced nearby. This vision is brought to life at Graze Burgers, which provides a full menu full of local, free-range options.
Despite Graze’s insistence on grass-fed ingredients, many visitors are surprised to learn that the restaurant isn’t all that accommodating for vegetarians and vegans. While some restaurants provide the option to transform virtually any burger into a vegan or vegetarian meal, those unwilling to eat meat at Graze are limited to The Hippie and Hell-Fire. Both, however, are delicious sandwiches that even avowed carnivores can enjoy.
In addition to its delectable burgers and sandwiches, Graze offers a variety of beverages worth ordering. Favorites on the drink menu include craft beers, spiked shakes, creative cocktails, and a vast selection of spirits. If you prefer to enjoy your burger alongside a cold beer, don’t hesitate to ask your server for a list of currently available seasonal options. Many of the restaurant’s best brews are produced locally.
As you enjoy your beverage and burger, take in the restaurant’s pleasant ambiance. The interior is dominated by an unfinished, industrial aesthetic, which is complemented by casual, yet friendly attitudes all around. The servers are prompt, but also personable. They’re also determined to show you a good time.
A few of our favorite menu items include the following:
Keep it simple with a basic, yet delicious burger featuring aged cheddar, tomatoes, onions, pickles, local greens, and Graze’s beloved sauce. Like all burgers served at Graze, this dish comes with your choice of hand-cut fries or battered onion rings.
The Last Frontier
In a notable departure from Graze’s local emphasis, this sandwich features house-smoked Alaskan salmon. Other key ingredients include capers, onions, roasted garlic, tomatoes, and local greens. A unique lemon dill sauce brings it all together with an enticing flavor.
In addition to its iconic burgers, Graze serves what are affectionately referred to as “Big Dawgs.” These all-natural, char-grilled hot dogs are served on local brioche buns. All Big Dawgs are worth trying, but The Q is especially memorable. This southern take on the hot dog concept includes bourbon barbecue sauce, slaw, aged cheddar, and bacon jam. Like the restaurant’s burgers, the Big Dawgs are served with fries or onion rings.
If you’re looking to keep your meat consumption to a minimum, you’ll definitely want to order this healthy and surprisingly hearty burger. An excellent vegetarian option, it includes a veggie patty, black beans, roasted peppers, bourbon caramelized onions, sauteed mushrooms, tomatoes, pickles, and local greens. Feta cheese is also included, but vegan visitors may opt to leave it out.
Strawberry Walnut Salad
Burgers may dominate the Graze menu, but other options are also available. If you’re looking to up your produce intake, you’ll certainly succeed when your order this salad. It includes strawberries, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, candied walnuts, and feta cheese, tossed with a strawberry vinegarette dressing. Like all Graze salads, it can be served with your choice of protein. Grilled chicken is likely your best bet, although your server can help you choose a great protein and salad pairing.
Nutella Crunch Shake
Don’t leave Graze without trying at least one of the restaurant’s sweet treats. You may be stuffed after your meal, but you’ll definitely want to spare a little room for this shake, which allows you to embrace your Nutella obsession. Made with fresh whipped cream, this shake also includes vanilla ice cream, English toffee, and, of course, the chocolatey goodness of Nutella.
Dining options abound in Sevierville, but the juicy, grass-fed burgers at Graze are worth trying. You’ll instantly detect the freshness made possible by primarily local ingredients.
