Description: Bradley's Pit BBQ & Grill is home to East Tennessee’s 4-Star Award Winning fresh hickory smoked BBQ. A family owned and operated establishment that has been a growing favorite for the locals and tourists traveling up and down Interstate 75. We are located off Exit 60. While you're in town, also visit the antique district of Sweetwater and The Lost Sea. If you’re cravin' the the real stuff…. We have the best around! From the fall off the bones ‘All you can eat’ pork ribs to the tender beef brisket, all barbecue is smoked on premises in an authentic pit. Also available is the smoked chicken, pulled pork and pulled turkey. If you're not in the mood for barbecue, we offer steaks, seafood and country favorites. Don’t forget the homemade sides, all made from family recipes, such as – potato salad, coleslaw, macaroni salad or our famous baked beans. Whether you save room…or have to take it with you, be sure to try one of our several homemade desserts from our most popular blackberry cobbler to the best carrot cake you've ever tried. Stop in and see us! Open 7 days for lunch and dinner! Carryout is also available.

I stopped over in Sweetwater on my way back from FL and this place was recommended by the motel I stayed at. I ordered (takeout) the regular size bbq pork sandwich and potato salad side. When I got back to the motel and opened the container, I was shocked/surprised/disappointed to see the most unappetizing bbq sandwich ever. The bun was... More

Had an excellent lunch at Bradleys. Saw their billboard on I75 and actually turned around to go to Bradleys. Good size portions at a fair price. Server was very attentive and pleasant. Highly recommend.

We took her recommendation of the special .... pulled pork sandwich with one side. One of us had cole slaw, the other had potato salad. I'm one who usually leaves food on my... More

We went there based on a recommendation. The meat was hard to remove from the bones and very chewy. One of the sides ordered was mashed potatoes. These looked so terrible, they looked like dried potatoes to which they added water. Very unappetizing. The owner or manager had an issue with our waitress. We could see her crying and upset... More

We were travelling home from a visit to Florida and were looking for bbq before we headed back up to Canada and came across Bradley's. Let's just say it was great, 3 of us had the pulled pork sandwich and 1 had the shrimp. We had so much food we didn't need dinner that night. Would definitely be back if... More

Service good. Ribs were good. Located 1 mile from Quality Inn. Clean inside. Elbow room at tables. Added extra sauce to ribs to give extra taste.
