Coming from Memphis we always like to believe we have the best BBQ. We are finding that these East Tennessee folks can cook some very good BBQ. The food is great. Deserts can be a little dry so I wouldn't bother with that. Just eat enough BBQ to fill yourself up.

Tried getting enough food for a decent size group to go and the girl at the register was very reluctant to even answer my questions! Then every time I wanted a item she would give me a excuse to why they couldn't accommodate me! Then I'm told to go to another location if I want what I asked for! Wow... More

We have visited this restaurant several times now. The food is always good and affordable. We have a family of five and to find a place that is good as well as affordable is hard. This place is not all luxury, it seems to be a remodeled house turned restaurant. If you are looking for a candle lit dinner, This... More

Some of the best pulled pork I have ever had. Hot sauce is great and the sweet isnt bad either. If you are looking for a local hole in the wall BBQ joint you have to stop here. Will def be back for more.

My whole family loved everything we ate here! The bbq sauce was awesome and the meat fell right off the bone (ribs). Even the sides were good. My husband is not usually a bbq fan, but even he loved the food here!

Love the BBQ here. We eat here regularly and enjoy it. One suggestion; the original coleslaw had more of a pepper taste and was so unique; we miss it.

Some of the best barbeque around. I visit the Hungry Bear at least once a month to get my sausage and mac and cheese.

I stumbled upon Hungry Bear just after it first opened and have gone back several times. The pulled pork and ribs are excellent. I love the potato salad because they do not over cook the potatoes. It is a true salad as potato salad is intended. The one thing for sure is that everything is prepared there. NOTE: To all... More

Some of the best food in town! Their ribs fall off the bone and their baked beans are some of the best. They have a great variety of sides. The restaurant is built in an old house giving it a funky and eclectic atmosphere. If you're in town, you have to stop by!

We always try to eat here when in town. The ribs are terrific and the chicken and pork as well. Lovely outside dining when the weather cooperates.
