We always have to stop by The Best for pizza and the garlic rolls. Service was great. The garlic rolls are to die for. Such an great pizza, plenty of toppings on a thin crisp crust. Very very good!!

You can't beat fat service unless you have fast service and phenomenal food, and this place has both. Every time my wife and I come to Gatlinburg we have a romantic dinner here. We will NOT go anywhere else!

They have the best garlic rolls and pizza in Gatlinburg. Fast service and you won't leave hungry. You might miss it because it is tucked back in a shopping plaza. But it is well worth the search. Service is excellent and friendly.

The pizza was very good! The special "highball" drinks, not so much. Service was great and gave us some good tips on sites to see while in town!

Literally some of the best pizza I've ever had, and a medium (the smallest you can order) will easily feed 3-4 people. The cheese and toppings were fresh, the crust was golden, and the sauce wasn't overdone. My wife loved the spaghetti and meatballs so much, she said she doubts she can eat it anywhere else from now on. Definitely... More

Everything was fabulous! The garlic knots are made fresh and are melt in your mouth. Everthing is made from scratch and large portions. One of the best standard tossed salads I've ever had. The highlight of my family's trip to Gatlinburgh.

We always eat here when visiting. The salads are great as well as the garlic knots and pizza! It seems like you step back in time when you enter the restaurant. Not fancy, but great food and friendly service!
