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.

Couldn't have asked for more on a recent visit. Prompt, friendly service in a casual, cozy, clean environment, awesome pulled pork barbeque sandwiches and some crispy, freshly made fries. The waitress was courteous, the manager even stopped by to ask if everything was okay. We had NO complaints. The sweet tea was just right, the price for everything was reasonable,... More

we stopped here on our way home from vacation because the reviews were so good. It was great. The service was quick and the food was wonderful. We had the large pork sandwich. The bun was fresh and toasted. I had the home made chips and they were fantastic. It is close to the interstate so it is very convenient... More

Angela was our server. She was very good at her job. Made us feel right at home. I had catfish and my husband had ribs. Neither of us let much on our plates. Delicious hush puppies too.

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.
