This place is right next door yo Bennet's Pit Bar-B-Que, one of my all time favorite restaurants that I've reviewed here on TripAdvisor will the staff is exceptionally friendly and customer-oriented. From the moment I walked in the door, during the 15 minutes I spent walking around in both sections of the village that sells merchandise and in the rear... More

The place was old and run down. Almost nothing on the shelves... handwritten signs everywhere warning customers to behave. The village out back was a joke, and the "no pictures" sign was funnier- who's want to take pics of it?? With the right marketing, message, and merch this place COULD be awesome. Kinda sad.

Our family of 10 stopped by Hillbilly Village to search for souvenirs and the cashier was very stoic towards us. She didn't display any sense of common courtesy. Being there gave me an uncomfortable feeling, the kind that screamed, "You people aren't welcome here." We noticed that she spoke quite freely to the "white customers". We left rather immediately and... More

I can remember this place when I was little. I always used to love stopping here. However, this was my first time returning in approx 15-20yrs. This place is really has really went down hill & looks very run-down. Very disappointed :(

This was our third trip to Pigeon Forge and our first chance to visit Hillbilly Village and was sadly disappointed. Very little on the shelves and what was on the shelves was duplicated through the store. I'm sure it was popular back in the day but not so much now.

I've been here many times in my almost 50 years of life. My favorite place to visit as a child. Can remember when they had entertainment out front. This is the only thing really left as it was when I was a child. So, my disappointment in the fact they are not keeping it up. The fun little display is... More

This is a very neat place to visit. They have a good variety of items, and the items have relatively good prices. I go everytime I'm on vacation, and have always found something. I would recommend this place.
