Share Your "Regas Story"

A Special Invitation


Regas Restaurant is celebrating

91 memorable years.

Regas is the oldest restaurant in Tennessee,

founded on July 7, 1919 in Knoxville,

by Frank and George Regas,

two Greek immigrant brothers.

Since that time,

there have been many memories created at Regas.

We all have stories to tell.

No one can tell your story but you.

Your story is a unique piece of Regas history.

We are inviting you to share

your favorite remembrances of Regas with us.


Your Story is Our Story.

The stories collected during our


will be the foundation for an ongoing effort

to collect your Regas stories

so that we can preserve and share our story.

Your stories may be used in media productions

as Bill Regas is honored

at the University of Tennessee’s

Department of Retail, Hospitality, and Tourism Management

inaugural “Legend of the Industry” celebration
