Description: Bradley's Pit BBQ & Grill is home to East Tennessee’s 4-Star Award...
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.

Good!

Husband was starving, I wasn't that hungry. Had steak special for $10! He loved it. I wanted salad but knew I couldn't eat a whole one, owner offered a dinner salad with the pulled pork, it was perfect! Service was great!

Went for a late lunch. Not crowded. Chose the homemade chili because I thought it would be a small plate. It was a large bowl full of ground beef and beans. Very good. Not the usual choice for a BBQ restaurant, but as good as you would make at home! Got a carrot cake to go and it was delicious!... More

Yes it is a mile off I-75 at Sweetwater, Tennessee but you will love it. Great Bar B Q and wonderful catfish sandwiches. I love the slaw. Down home cooking that is so good. Great service also.

i saw signs for this place while on my cross-country motorcycle trip. It had been raining all day, so stopping was a welcome relief. Waitress was amazing, and made for some great conversation while I ate. I had the BBQ ribs, and was so full by the time I was done, I was afraid I couldn't button my chaos again!... More

We decided to try Bradley's while in town for a two day basketball tournament. I wanted something besides fast food fare. I had the BBQ stuffed potato and my son had the Baby Back Ribs.

We were traveling through the area and stopped for lunch. I order a burger which tasted exactly like a steak and shake burger. My husband ordered the bbq sampler plate and I will say he is a bit of a BBQ connoisseur. My husband states the BBQ was over cooked, tastless and bland. No smoke rings and flavorless. The place...
