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.

Went today in hopes of getting some good barbecue, but I was pretty disappointed. The small pork sandwich is tiny and the fries were the frozen crinkle cut style. Service was pretty shoddy as well. Don't think I will be going back.

Don't bother! We were there last evening, coffee was cold. food was only luke warm at best, the pulled chicken was cold and dry and tasted as if it has been standing there for awhile, as did the pulled pork. We have to pour the BBQ sauce on our food to moisten it and give it some taste. And they... More

My husband and I have been past this place on several occasions and noticed that the parking lot was packed. Thinking this could be some great BBQ, we decided to drive from our home in Maryville, TN to finally check it out. Upon entering the restaurant, my first thought was "it's a dive." Very bland flooring, walls, and table coverings,... More

Love the service and staff at Bradley's, they are very friendly and accommodating! When my family stopped in they were smoking the baby back ribs. The chef let us peek in and see the magic of their hickory smoker in action. Sides are homemade and to die for. Our favorites were the coleslaw and home made potato chips. Can't wait... More

Bradley's BBQ is awesome.Great place for couples as well as family. The Food is out of this world. Portions are great for a BBQ Rest. They aren't skimpy on them.

Ordered the all you can eat BBQ ribs. I was served 4 hugh, tough, tasting like beef ribs. When I asked for a reorder the girl said "all the meat has to be gone before" she could submit the request. Then she avoided me, but that was ok because I soon realized I didn't really want them anyway. I asked... More

Stopped by after reading some reviews on trip advisor. Food is nothing worth bragging about but it's not bad. Price is a little high given the quality (meat was very fatty). Probably won't come back, but just because there are some much better places closer to home.

We were driving to Ohio from Georgia and wanted to stop for lunch. We were greeted and seated. Then our watress, Maria, took our orders. We had BBQ sandwiches & fried okra. It was all good, and Maria did a great job. The lunch special price was great. But I just don't understand a BBQ joint with out Brunswick Stew... More

It's off the Interstate a ways, but we often stop to eat here when we're traveling through the area. We've never been disappointed with the barbeque. We usually split a meal and it's plenty for both of us. The place could use a good cleaning and maybe remodel. I like country décor, but it all could use a good polish... More
