great food and deserts

The atmosphere was very relaxed. The food was splendid and the restaurant was open somewhat late. It was right up the road from our rv campground. We had one pulled pork plate and another combination plate that we could choose our meats. We had the ribs, sausage and brisket. The sausage was a... read more

Haywood Smokehouse is still number one, but Tony Gores comes a close second. Restaurant is super small, but we went for a late lunch, so there wasn't much of a wait. Food was great - especially the sausage.

They large proportions however very greasy food. The food hurt mine and my family's stomach. The price is way too high for the quality of food. I ordered the chicken tenders and they were dripping with grease. However the servers were very nice and attentive. Good atmosphere but bad food. Won't be eating there again.

Very good food and great atmosphere. If you don't know who Tony Gore is, let me tell you. Tony is one of Gospel Music greats in my book. He might even sing for your supper. You might even spy one of your favorite artists from time to time. Whoever said "never trust a skinny cook" could have been talking about... More

This place attracts all of the artists that come into the Area. Tony Gore knows them all. His staff treats everyone that walks through those doors with the utmost respect. Anyway, the food was incredible and the portions were well worth the dollar ! You should check out the size of their slices of cake. Good Lord !! Huge !

Well if this isn't southern dinning for a Yankee like myself, I don't know what is. With the friendly "howdy ya ll" greeting at the door to the sound of gospel music being played. . Has that family dinning feel.. The corn bites are amazing. Kind of like hush puppies, but corn and powder sugar. Baked beans are best I... More

I've eaten here many times as its one of my favorite restaurants in Sevier County and I usually get a BBQ sandwich or ribs which are always great, but this time I got the smoked spicy BBQ hot wings and they are the best flavored wings I've ever had. They are a little spicy but not overly spicy, just the... More

We love eating at Tony Gore's and go 3 to 4 times when we are in town, but don't go if you are in a hurry. This is a truly laid back place and food is cooked to order.

Found the brisket very dry and flavor average at best. Waited long time just to order and longer to receive the food. I was told that the brisket had just came out of the smoker so anticipated hot and moist brisket. Not the case. To top it off, received order, and then had to wait excessively for my change, eventually... More
