We were searching for a place to eat when we saw a parking place in front of Bennett's. They share the building with Big Daddy's Pizza. We chose Bennett's and shared the Sampler meal. Lots of food for two and everything was good. The smoked sausage were unexpected for a bbq restaurant but were great. The service was fantastic and... More

This is the second time we have eaten here for breakfast. The bar is fully loaded with all the usual....eggs, sausage, bacon, biscuits, cereals, fruit, and then they have BBQ!!! What more could you want while on vacation, then BBQ and eggs for breakfast! It's about 10 per adult, but they have several 10% off coupons in the books around... More

Decided to have a late night dinner with my wife. I am not a huge barbecue fan but it was a very convenient location since we just came down the Ober Gatlinburg tram. It is definitely a barbecue joint so I went with the Burger with brisket, cole slaw and onion rings meal. I like my onion rings a little... More

Served by Miss Pickles who was attentive and pleasant. Delicious food and a fun atmosphere. Liked the fact that there were four sauces to choose from...and we tried each one! We would return.

Great food and good prices. Me and my wife split a combo plate for lunch and it was plenty for us and was very good. It was tender and had good flavor without adding sauce unlike most BBQ. Def. Will return. Keep up the good work.

My husband and I went here for dinner bc we had a coupon. Oh my gosh! It was the best bbq I've ever had. I had cole slaw and potato salad as my sides and they were great too. While we were there we saw they served breakfast, so we went back this morning. It's a small buffet with pulled... More

We found this place in one of the local visitor guides. We decided to try it and really liked it. They had a variety for all different tastes. We liked it so much we went back the second night. Our first night we had the Texas plate and trio sliders. My husband loved the hogs legs and I thought the... More

Had the ultimate sampler and the BBQ sandwich on Garlic toast. Both were very good - Miss April was our server and she was outstanding. Loved on my baby the whole time. We felt like family going to this establishment - the food was great. Perhaps a little over priced. But would go back again for the atmosphere and service.... More

Out of this world BBQ. Steve our waiter recommended the ribs and the brisket on a bun. Both we're amazing! Really good Mac and Cheese. Fast and affordable! Love trying local restaurants and this one didn't disappoint!!! Kids meals are big!!!
