Calhoun's has major ribs. There are locations in Gburg and Pigeon Forge. Tony Roma's in Pigeon Forge is also known for Ribs.

I hope someone local can help me with the name as it has escaped the old brain. We found the BBQ/ produce spot right on 321 just out of PF towards Wears Valley. In the fall it is always packed with people and you can see the BBQ pit smoking! It is a walk up and order with generous servings and picnic tables scattered around to eat at.There is also a produce mkt all in the same area. The BBQ is some of the best we've had and fried pies are to die for. We met the gentleman who does the cooking last fall. He moved there from La. after Katrina and settled in the area. I'm not sure if it's open in the less crowded times of the year but if it is it is definitely worth stopping at.

Tony Gores on the hi-way near Sevierville is a hard to beat local place.

The BBQ joint on Wears Valley Rd. used to called the Smoking Pig but it changed hands. We went this year and it was still pretty good.

Another vote for Calhouns and Tony Roma's would be my second choice. TR has a variety of sauces you can choose if you like them sweet or hot.

We always enjoy the ribs at Bennett's BBQ. I live in Louisiana and work in a hospital and found it funny that one of my patients family was raving about Bennett's. (nearly 700 miles away) They didn't know their nurse was a regular visitor to the area. I've ate at the place on 321 but I didn't remember seeing ribs listed. We always get a BBQ sandwich and would take it with us to Cade's Cove for lunch. Great picnic :). Interesting to know that the owners are from Louisiana. Hoping to make a trip in June. Calhoun's is one of the few places I've yet to eat at. We've been coming to the area for about 14 years in a row now, sometimes twice a year if we are lucky. We will have to give Calhoun's a try.

Has anyone experienced Buddys BBQ in Sevierville? My family is planning a trip in June and their prices were very intriguing when your feeding a family of ten!
