Local long time customer.

Food is great. Pulled pork barbecue sandwiches are good. Pork beans are always on point. Advise carry out only. Lighting in restaurant is very dim and atmosphere is noisy.

My husband is a bbq fanatic and always wants to go to Ridgewood when we're in the area. Well, Ridgewood was packed so we decided to give Pardner's a try and man was it delish!! And we didn't have to wait an hour to be seated and served. The food and wait service was amazing. We will definitely be back.

Had a combo platter with brisket and sliced pork, which were both very good, but not great. Ordered with fries and slaw. Fries were average but good, slaw was kind of dry. Service was friendly and fast. Would try again.

The BBQ is not bad but it's sure not great. Service has gone down over the years and it's usually dirty. Someone always ends up getting sick after our visit. We will not be going back.

Placed order to go. Got it 45 minutes later. Drive 15 miles to hotel, only to learn that the bbq salad ordered (and paid for) was just a garden salad! NO MEAT! Could have gotten that at Wendys a mile away for a lot less money!!!

We go to Pardner's everytime we are in TN. The breakfast is always fantastic. The servers are super friendly and very attentive! The gravy is one of our favorites and the french toast is to die for. I've only had their bbq a couple of times but it is great too. We usually come up on the weekends and s

I went for lunch. The restaurant was less than 1/4 full. The server on my side of the restaurant was running like crazy - for no apparent reason. She was having trouble with the 5 or 6 tables she was handling. But I was there for the food. The brisket sandwich was very good. Nicely marbled beef perfectly seasoned. The... More
