We needed dinner and stopped here. Got a full rack of BBQ ribs to split between two. PLENTY of food! The ribs were very good. We would stop here again if in the area. Nothing fancy - but a good meal.

The food is really good here. Lots of BBQ options. The fries and tater tots were cooked in fresh oil. The peach cobbler is cooked in personal cast iron pans with vanilla ice cream. Would highly recommend.

We were given a gift card as part of an honorarium my husband received. We both had whiskeys. He had the grilled salmon and I had the flank steak. Other than the steak being overcooked, it was excellent. The sides were great (Cole slaw, collard...greens and green beans). Service was friendly and fast. There seem to be a lot of locals there, too. Friends of the staff, etc. It was a nice dinner.More

I ordered the brisket, the wife ordered the pork chop. The only trace of bbq here is in the name. It seems to be oven baked, not smoked. I was disappointed with no smoke flavor at all. I was hoping for mesquite, oak, hickory,,,? The...baked beans were bland but acceptable. The street corn which is typically grilled, was instead boiled. I will not be returning.More

We had the half rack rib and brisket plates. Neither was anything special - they were OK, but not "Good". Sides were meh, too. Slaw tasted old (and soggy), beans were OK, fries were cold and (just) OK. Then they tack on a "covid cleaning"...surcharge. I mean, shouldn't the place already be clean, regardless of covid? I guess not, they're charging to clean the place. I think they are just taking advantage of a bad situation, and only making it worse. We won't be returning.More

We were surprisingly pleased at the food we ate here. The restaurant and service was nothing to write home about, but the pulled pork sandwich and pizza were excellent!

We stopped here on our way to Sedona and based on the reviews expected to have a good meal. This place exceeded our expectations! We had the pulled pork platter, Friday’s all you can eat Cod and fries, and the classic breakfast. Everything was great...and the service was excellent!More

We again ate at this local establishment. Under kind of new ownership, but the food and service remains great. We ate before the rush so things are less than real organized. But the fish was good. Too bad they wait until you're totally done before...asking about more fish. The wait for a couple more pieces takes away good thoughts.More

Had the Full Rack of Ribs. OMG! A fall off the bone, lean rack of delicious! We had onion rings and the veggies for sides - both were tasty and good sized portions. We have lived in several states and eaten ribs at MANY rib...joints. But The Tennessee Grill has the BEST ribs we've had in more than 10 years. Add in great servers and friendly ordering help (we ordered over the phone for take-away), and it was an absolute first class experience in every regard.More

I love this restaurant. While we were staying home as the planet shutdown for the virus, we decided to order takeout from area restaurants once a week. We got the pulled chicken sandwiches which were so good! We paid over the phone with our order,...and the pick up was quick and easy. We got plenty bbq sauce with our order, and everything was still moist and delicious. Even without these circumstances, I really like this restaurant. They have good home cooking type food that is so filling and great tasting. The service is always so friendly. No kitschy theme decorations or cute decorator arrangements in the rafters—just good food at a good price. There is also a small bar..I don’t drink so don’t feel qualified to comment on it.More
