Best meal so far!

Food was delicious. Service was great. No wait on a busy Friday night. First time we spent under 100 bucks for a family of 5.

We took our family of eleven to Bennett's for lunch one day last week while on vacation in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. It was a great experience. Our waiter was very efficient and catered to our every need. The menu had selections to make all eleven of us happy! The food was very good, hot and beautiful. I've already recommended this restaurant... More

Food and ambiance are good and servers are pleasant. I will go there again and choose some of their BBQ stuff, many were eating that and the aroma was genuine.

The food was especially good! Servers were more than helpful to accommodate you in any way they can. A rare find in my belief. Need to come back again!

Bennett's has a good breakfast buffet and a good salad bar for lunch and dinner. We enjoy the BBQ sandwiches and ribs. The variety of BBQ sauces is excellent. We really enjoy eating at Bennett's.

Bennett's was near our hotel so we decided to walk over and give it a try. We were so glad we did! The BBQ was fresh and moist. We chose green beans and potato salad as our sides and they tasted just like a southern picnic! The decor reminded us of a southern picnic and made us feel right at... More

Stopped in, and grabbed 2 pounds of the pulled pork to go on a picnic in Great Smoky Mountains national Park. Full of flavor, tender, and they give you enough sauce to make sure you have as much as you want. Some of the best pulled pork I've eaten.

Our family stays a week in Gatlinburg every year in July. We have always stopped at KFC to get chicken on our way to picnic in the Chimney's. Little did we know they closed that location. We had 13 people waiting on us to bring food. We happen to see Bennett's BBQ. We ran in & told them our predicament.... More

When we visit the area there are a handful of places we like to eat. Bennett's is always a must! The food is always good, You get plenty for your money, and more times than not our service has been excellent! The original sauce that's served warm is just amazing!
