KNOXVILLE (WATE) - A Knoxville "mom and pop" eatery is the first winner of the Best of GMT poll.

Voting for the best breakfast spot in town ended Wednesday in the first round of the informal poll on the WATE 6 Facebook page.

Good Morning Tennessee viewers picked Twister's Diner, 5831 Washington Pike.

Twisters manager Kara Cox told GMT anchors Tearsa Smith and Bo Williams omelets are the restaurant's signature breakfast item.

"We sell a bunch of those, we have a variety of them," Cox said. "Those are big sellers around here, and also our biscuit and gravy."

Cox says this July the restaurant will have been located on Washington Pike two years.

Twister's got its name when it first opened as an ice cream store. The owners soon expanded the menu to include food all day long.

Cox credits the Best of GMT recognition to the restaurant's many Facebook fans

"We have a lot of loyal, quality customers that come in and support us," she said. "It's just a really great feel for our community around here."

The next Best of GMT poll gets underway Friday morning when voting opens for the best coffee.

Nominations will be taken on the 6 News Facebook page through next Wednesday, then the winner will be announced Thursday morning live on the air.
