We had the ribs, and maybe last time we were there, we had something more to my liking. I thought the food was ok, but not remarkable this time. The service, however, is outstanding - fast, efficient, and friendly!

The BBQ here was very good and the service was as well. We especially like the vinegar based sauce and bought a jar to take home.

First time visit to Bennett's. The food wasn't the best bbq I've ever had but but was good enough to cone back again sometime. We got the sampler. Their best meat is the smoked sausage. For being in tourist town...The prices weren't too bad.

We had dinner here one night and the food and staff could not have been any better. The wait staff manager came over and corrected a problem. The problem was with the order and they made it right. I had both the pork and brisket sandwiches and preferred the pork over the beef. My wife had the chicken and it... More

To be fair, really good bbq in this area is few and far between. Gatlinburg is no exception to this. Truth be known, good bbq is pricy to make, and doesn't reap a huge profit in return. As you know, the best bbq comes from the roadside bbq pits, where they start smoking about 4am, and serve until they run... More

My husband and I had the pleasure of eating breakfast here in October. They have a buffet and it is the best . They have biscuits, gravy, ham, bacon, sausage, pulled pork, eggs, any kind of fruit you want and much more. I loved it because I could have the bbq pulled pork for breakfast. We always get great service... More

we had the BBQ combination platter which had pulled pork, baby back ribs and beef brisket. The pork and ribs were tender and flavorful. The brisket had nice flavor but was a little tough. Overall it was a very good meal.

Bennetts has pretty decent BBQ. Much better than Calhouns up the street. The pulled pork was a little dry and the ribs needed a lot of sauce.
