The food was great. I always get a pork sandwich and add a salad bar. The chicken salad on the bar is excellent. It is well worth the price of the salad bar.

The baby back ribs at Bennett's were the very best I've ever had. I've tried ribs at other bbq restaurants and no others compare to these! Friendly service, price was comparable to other bbq restaurants. I will return!

Seriously. I miss it already! Well, we chose this BBQ joint over the other one in the area. I am not a huge BBQ person so this one seemed to have some more options for me while the husband chowed down on his smoked meats. Service was outstanding but to be honest, service is really good in Gatlinburg at every... More

I ordered the chicken and ribs. It was delicious. I opted for fried corn and green beans. Our waiter was great. The location was within walking distance from the hotel. But most of all the food was fantastic! Will go again!

Melt in your mouth pork ribs and beautifully barbequed taste. It's just unbelievably awesome. The service was fantastic! Very friendly and helpful. This is a must stop if you're passing through. I would definitely recommend this place and I would go back.

We ordered the beef ribs at Bennett's and they were quite lean with a very good flavor. However for $15 there were a mere 4 ribs of meat. The service was good and people friendly. We will return on another trip, but probably won't get the beef ribs. We had onion rings which were average.

We ordered the bar-b-que sampler platter and shared it that along with the their fill salad bar which has a little of everything was more than enough food for us. We returned another morning to eat their breakfast buffet which was just as good.
