We are natives of Knoxville and love our community where we have raised our boys. Our idea for the restaurant all started with luaus in our backyard that grew from 20 guests to over 75 during a 5 year span. We then began competing on the KCBS professional barbeque circuit, traveling throughout the southeast. In 2019, we left competing and opened our first restaurant January of 2020. That historic year caused us to lose our beloved restaurant, but the fire and desire to feed friends and family delicious meals was not put out. We increased our catering presence with national advertising through Weddingwire and The Knot July of 2021. That fall, we catered 19 events and booked 42 more events for 2022! This led to necessity of a "bricks and sticks" location and reignited our dream of having a restaurant. Paradise Que's doors opened on June 29, 2022!
We want to be part of your life through service; providing a fun atmosphere with quality food. Our neighbors, friends and family are the perfect guests for continuing the spirit of the backyard luaus we began with and we hope to bring everyone a fun, relaxing place with food that is inspired by the islands.
Welcome to Paradise!
Paradise Que focuses on house made foods to create a fresh dining experience.
The islands are known for Poke and we knew we had to incorporate this deliciousness into our menu.
