26 years and counting! 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 ordered a to go dinner due to the virus. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich with fries and slaw. The roll for the sandwich was hard. Didn’t expect a stale bun. The pulled pork wasn’t the best either. Pretty bland for a BBQ...place. I had ribs and 1/4 chicken which was pretty good. The beans and slaw were also good. All in all, just another chain BBQ place. Nothing special. We should have researched a little better and tried a home grown place.More

We eat a lot of Bar-B-Cue in a lot of different places and my sister raved about this place...even she admitted that this was somewhere between mediocre and bad BBQ tonight. We started with fried deviled eggs...super dry and seemed really aged. The fried pickles...were cool and greasy. We ordered two meat plates and then shared...ribs were warm and lacked any tender pieces, brisket was pretty good, pulled pork was moist but cold, the sausage was nothing like what is in any photo...lacked any taste at all like they missed the spice filling. The skin had a good crunch. The remainder of the meal was not horrible but the sausage is something to stay away from. My sister said the cobbler would make everything about the meal better...their crust layers to fruit ratio is way off...but it was the one thing we ate that was hot. This was our first and last visit knowing that there are some other places that are not living on a reputation.More

Not going to lie, you eat at great BBQ places by eating at lots of mediocre and bad BBQ places. This one falls into the mediocre category. Nothing horrible just a lot of near misses. Ribs are good, but not baby back as they state,...nor are they the most tender and flavorful, kinda bland. Brisket is not bad, tender and juicy if a bit lacking in the smoky department. Burnt Ends - don't get me started (how can they be burnt ends if they are not burnt)? Let alone the lack of marbling that gives them so much flavor and tenderness. Nothing here really jumps out at you as being great, but it is not that bad either.More

Wasn’t bad but wasn’t my favorite. I would go there again and maybe try something different. We had ordered it to go and were missing a whole meal.

We did a takeout order. When we got back to the house we couldn't believe how much food there was ans how delicious it was. Kudos to the staff and especially Holly. She is so pleasant and so sweet. Thank you to your hard working...staff.More

Took our family of 5 here during a busy Christmas week based upon the good reviews. I’m a wannabe rib guru, so I appreciate the work that goes into good smoked meat. We went for dinner. Upon arriving, no billowing smoke- but you could smell...smoke in the air. The decor was a bit outdated(older booths/chairs) -neon beer signs but no beer available- but that’s not what we were here for. We got meat combos- tried the ribs, pork, burnt ends, and brisket. All were great- a definite smoky flavor. The bad part was they were not the freshest- you could tell it was reheated and had sat for a while- the temp was lukewarm. Still had great flavor, but it was either cooked the day before or early am and had sat a bit. The service was great. A bit pricey, but in line with the touristy area - around 25 for a combo plate of meat. We hit 100 for the family pretty easy. Overall good, but not over the top.More

We love brisket and we enjoyed the brisket here. There fried corn was also delicious. We did take out due to Covod, but the food was great.

There was a group of 10 of us. Four kids, six adults. We were able to be seated together, which is a plus! The staff made sure people who entered had their masks on, which I appreciate. My husband and I visit every time we’re...in PF, the food is always good and we always have left overs to take back to our hotel. I’m not a huge fan of bbq food, except for this place! Our waitress was very nice and accommodating. We’ve never had bad service or bad food at this restaurant. 10/10 recommend.More
