We stopped at Bennett's BBQ in Gatlinburg TN. our first night in town. The service was great and the food was amazing. Our waiter JJ was very helpful in telling us where to go for fun for the whole family. So, if you love BBQ and your in the area stop by and eat there. You won't regret it.

By far Bennett's is the best BBQ I have had so far. Every part of the meal was delicious and the kids also enjoyed it. Their potato salad and macaroni and cheese was excellent also. We look forward to eating at Bennett's every time we are in the Smokies. I love the fact that there BBQ isn't loaded with fat.... More

My husband and I split one of the variety plates and added the salad and soup bar to our meal. It was more than enough for both of us. We took leftovers for lunch the next day. BBQ was good. My favorite was the honey BBQ at the table. Salad bar was good, also.

We ate there on July 4 with my family. It was great food. I got the Big Daddy's sampler. It was tons of food. It was delicious. They had there on signature sauce. Which was excellent. I definitely would recommend. This was the first time I had been there.

Overall the BBQ was alright, nothing spectacular. I enjoyed the breakfast bar but there wasn't a lot of options on the bar for breakfast though. Overall the staff was really great to deal with both times we went and was very helpful to us. A little pricey either way though.

I ordered ribs which consisted mostly of fat. Their salad bar was seriously lacking (it's an additional $3.99 with your meal, $9.99 without a meal.) Very disappointed as I'd read decent reviews on this place.

I myself am a pitmaster in Kentucky. I know barbecue, and this was a very good barbecue restaurant. My wife and I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with baked beans, fries, onion rings, and green beans (I also got the salad bar). With a beer, the total for the meal was $36. It is unfair for me to nitpick their... More

We have had BBQ here and it is good and the variety of spaces makes it delicious. But, this trip, we ate breakfast buffet there. The variety is quite good, w a small salad bar, muffins, pancakes, biscuits, eggs and standard meats as well as shredded BBQ, which is a nice change from the sausage/bacon routine. There is also fresh... More
