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.

The pulled pork sandwich had hard pieces of gristle, bone and fat that I could not eat. The beef sandwich had good flavor but was dry.

If you want ribs that fall off the bone, if you want great BBQ sauce, if you want friendly service, then this is the place. My wife and I were driving back from Canada and had a want for real southern BBQ. We found this place from our GPS, it's about five miles off from the Interstate, but it is... More

Heading home from Florida and stopped here for lunch. Three of us had the pork and my son had the ribs. My one and only complaint....and it is a small one...I prefer pulled pork to chopped pork. I know this is a small distinction, but Q is my thing and I am particular. Aside from being chopped, the pork was... More

Soon has you step out of your vehicle, you can see and smell the pit burning with good flavors. The restaurant's decor is just simple nothing fancy but... More

We first stopped at Bradley's about eight years ago on the way to a Vols game, and was amazed by their good food and great service. Now any time we pass through, we make sure to stop. The food has never ceased to be great. The service sometimes can be lacking if the waitress gets sidetracked, but still generally great.... More

We stopped in for dinner after our visit to the lost sea experience. The staff are friendly and the food was good with a couple exceptions. We liked the wings, mac and cheese, baked beans, cole slaw, sausage, chips, and burgers. We ended up ordering two extra sides of the mac and cheese because the kids liked it so much.... More

My husband and I stopped here for lunch while traveling south and it was only minutes off the interstate. We both ordered the BBQ sandwich and it was very good (my husband loved the smokiness it had). I liked that you chose your sauce, which were on the table. The diner was nice but not fancy by no means and... More

We stopped here for dinner after our Lost Sea tour, and the food was excellent. In fact, everything was, including the friendliness of our server. The appetizer of Piggy Chips was incredibly good, the pork succulent and the homemade chips very good. There was too much food, really. I had a turkey sandwich, and it was very good. Not quite...
