“little River BBQ has best ribs ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Stopped on spur of the moment. BBQ ribs and fried okra were out of this world. Best ribs in Pigeon Forge for sure. Will definitely eat here again if in the area.

“Delicious BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

I loved my BBQ ribs at the Little River BBQ. It's a nice little local place with good food! You can sit in the screened in porch out back and enjoy the river, or you can eat inside. We started out sitting on the porch, but it was a little too humid for us, and the waitress had no problem letting us move inside where we were more comfortable!

“Best BBQ in Townsend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Enjoy great BBQ from the back porches overlooking Little River. Love the sweet and spicy sauce. Sides are wonderful; the potato salad is made by staff on site in small batches...yum.
Consistent, friendly service.

“Ok place to eat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

The service was wonderful and they offer a military discount, but the food was average. We ate out on the screened in porch by the river and that was enjoyable.
