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.

Just tasted like quickly baked pork. No smoke flavor or seasoning whatsoever. Fries, greasy and cold as well. A big plate full of "mess"! The slaw... More
