We tried Bennett's Pit BBQ for dinner in Gatlinburg and it was excellent. It is located off the main street in the downtown area. The food and service were both excellent in a nice atmosphere. If you want to try authentic BBQ, this is the place to go. We enjoyed it very much.

Love the food and the service! Good atmosphere! The lady that seated us was a little bland but maybe she was having a bad day! The restrooms were clean!

Name it and it just might be on the menu. Spent 20 minutes reading the menu and trying to decide what to have. WOW what great food. We enjoyed every bite. Wish they had a place here in California. All I can say is BBQ done right.

the food was good, but really overpriced for what you get, my husband left still hungry. The waitress was not very pleasant either, maybe having a bad day?

We have to eat here at least once every visit to Gatlinburg. I tried the Carolina Pork Sandwich and was not disappointed. It was delicious! cole slaw right on top of the sandwich was wonderful.

Service was great! Food was very good. Did not need seconds. Very busy place, popular with families. Combo dish will get you a taste of all the BBQ

Loved the food and service. The waiter Brian was new but full of personality. We had the beef brisket and fried catfish. Both were good choices with plenty of food on the plate. Everyone made us feel welcome. We stumbled on this place since some other places we walked by we're full with a line. So glad we ended up... More
