Q re: East Tennessee

I know this is obscure, but I start teaching at East TN State in two weeks, in the upper NE corner of the state. Are there any food experiences - restaurants, cuisine items particular to that area, etc. - that are not to be missed? Towns incl Johnson City, Knoxville, and Bristol in TN, and Asheville, NC. Thanks in advance for responses.
