Description: Bennett's Secret It's no mystery why Bennett's Bar-B-Que meals are so moist, tender and packed full of flavor. First, our pork ribs, chicken, chopped pork and beef briskets are basted in Bennett's own special sauce. Then, they're set over smoldering hickory wood and smoked for up to 14 hours. The heat and sauce penetrate deep into every layer of meat, turning it a perfect pinkish color while enriching every juicy mouthful with rich, smoky flavor. Since everyone likes different amounts of our mouth-waterin' sauce, we serve it warm on the side so you can pour on as much or as little as you like. After you've savored the last bite, we hope you'll agree that all the work we put into preparing your Bar-B-Que was well worth it!

“Really Good Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

I found Bennett's to be a really good meal, one that lived up to the good reviews here on Trip Advisor. I had the ribs, which were cooked perfectly and extremely flavorful. The service was very good.

The restaurant itself is a spacious building, and while I did not have any wait time at all during my December visit, I imagine that a full house might cause you some wait time. Bear in mind that as a family restaurant, Bennett's, like other similar places, might draw the occasionally family with crying babies or loud children, and that can be annoying.

Pigeon Forge is stocked full of restaurants, some of which live more on the hype than actual good food, but I found Bennett's BBQ to be a genuinely good place for BBQ lovers.

“Satisfactory Repeat Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Love the pork. We have gotten take-out from this location on more than one occasion while visiting in the area. It is always good.

“Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

We loved our meal here, in fact my husband was so impressed he said, "I would even advertise for them on my car." That is a huge statement for him! The staff was very attentive and friendly. We will be back!

“Great Ribs”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Known for the ribs and with good reason. They were excellent. However, we did not like any of the sides that we ordered - potato salad, cole slaw, or mac and cheese. I also ordered chili that tasted like canned hot dog sauce. The waiter removed the chili charge from the bill. Service was slow, but the waiter was friendly.

“Wow, what happened ?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013 via mobile

Every year we visit the area and eat at Bennett's for good BBQ. This trip was a disappointment. Ribs were not the norm. These looked and tasted like ribs were par boiled, rubbed, and BAKED!! Meat was tender but salty, no smoke flavor, no red bark. What the h****! Wife's pulled pork not much better. Sorry but will have to find somewhere else.....
