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.

Located about one mile south of I-75, Bradley's has great brisket. On my second visit I tried the baby back ribs and they were awesome also. The staff was great. I will be back.

We loved being about to sit outside and enjoy the great weather as we at the BEST ribs. And don't get me started about the home made desserts! We hire people to cater for events and this was a slam dunk for us. We met the sister (the brother cooks) and she was so friendly, earnest and fun to talk... More

My companion had a half-rack of Smoked Baby Back Ribs with sides of collard greens and fried okra ($14.99). I ordered the Smoked Shredded Pork... More
