With the combination of intense traffic as we neared Smoky Mountain National Park and not seeing a roadside rest since 100 miles ago, Sevierville was our final pitstop on this Thanksgiving escapade to the forest. Besides desperately needing to pee, I like to drink Via on the hiking trails and was fresh out. Great service and clean; an all-around beautiful Starbucks experience.
