My family of three ate there tonight and all three of us were very disappointed. I really don't know where to start but if I have to I will start with the ribs.

We tried the BBQ. It was supposed to be pulled pork but seemed more like sliced BBQ that had been pulled apart swimming in sauce. It was more of a butt cut but not to fatty. It was race weekend and the wait staff seemed a bit gassed by 7p. Will try the burgers next time.

It's a decent drive from Bristol to Pardners and I usually don't regret it. Last time I was there they were out of Pork. Yep. No pork. And the fries were cold.

I have been here several times and have always been pleased with the food and service. I would recommend this to anyone in the area that wants great BBQ and would go as far as saying it is the best in the tri-cities.

group of 6.... (3 generations) went for dinner last night. We had read the TA reviews and were conflicted... as the parking lot is always packed... but the reviews weren't great. We found the menu to be very limited for BBQ items.... just ribs and pulled pork. Our waitress encouraged us to order Pork rather than beef...(more tender). We had... More

Took family from Pennsylvania there to eat, only because the other BBQ place was closed. It was OK but neither I or my guests were that impressed by the food, service, or atmosphere.
