There are truly no word to express how bad the customer experience is here but I will try. No air conditioning running in 85 degree weather. Waitress forgot to take our order, when she did bring the food that was the end of her, no check back, or refills ... nothing. After paying our bill which was $30 for a... More

I am from the east Tennessee area, but now live in middle Tennessee. When you get BBQ here you don't get BBQ cooked in the sauce - to me that is not real BBQ. When we went to visit family last weekend, I knew that Pardners would be on our list of places to eat as I hadn't been there... More

Pardner's has a basic restaurant with no frills. It is kind of dim inside and there is a lot of noise when it is busy. It can take some time to get service but I'm not sure if that was due to being understaffed or we just arrived during a rush. My Mom had the BBQ Beef sandwich, I had... More

Food is great. Pulled pork barbecue sandwiches are good. Pork beans are always on point. Advise carry out only. Lighting in restaurant is very dim and atmosphere is noisy.

My husband is a bbq fanatic and always wants to go to Ridgewood when we're in the area. Well, Ridgewood was packed so we decided to give Pardner's a try and man was it delish!! And we didn't have to wait an hour to be seated and served. The food and wait service was amazing. We will definitely be back.
