Some very good BBQ

We loved this place. In fact we ate there twice during the week we stayed. I learned to stay away from the chains and tourist restaurants where they herd you like cattle. Venture out on 321 and you will find some very good places to eat like Hungary Bear BBQ. See you guys next year.

We were looking for something quick and easy to have for dinner on our arrival day to our cabin and came across this restaurant on our way to the grocery store. We picked up brisket and ribs. Delicious!

Stopped here for lunch with the family after zip lining at Climbworks. Pulled pork was as good as any we have ever had. Whole family enjoyed it and we will definitely return

We've eaten here numerous times and the quality is excellent. There is a space for indoor dining, picnic tables outside or you can take your meal with you. They serve large portions, so you may want to share! The desserts are great, too.

We stopped with about a dozen adults and kids after running the rapids on inflatable boats.. Couldn't squeeze into the tiny restaurant until some folks cleared out. You place your order at the order counter then wait for the 2 cooks in the back to rustle up your grub. The order line moved fairly quickly, but took a while. With... More

This place was recommended to me by our guide on a whitewater rafting trip. It was a great recommendation as I love barbecue and this place is out of the way of busy, kitschy downtown Gatlinburg. The food here is great. I got a pulled pork sandwich with sides of cole slaw and mac and cheese. They offer three sauces:... More

I had the lunch special of pulled pork, ribs and sausage with chili and mac & cheese for $14 bucks. Came with 3 sauces, sweet, mild and spicy. The food and sides were OK. I liked to blend the spicy and sweet sauce. Portion size was decent. The service was very polite and quick.

Wow, didn't think it would be so good. I sure do love Good pulled pork! This joint is just outside my favorite swimming hole in Greenbrier, TN. My family and I took a break from our river fun to have a little lunch, glad we did! We can't wait to come back!
