Good food with a good menu, I started off with the fried devil eggs that the server swore by, the egg itself tasted great, but by frying them the exterior of the egg seemed to have some kind of skin that formed by the flash frying. The pulled pork is awesome.

Had their hamburger. They mix Bbq pork in with the hamburger and it is pretty tasty. My husband tried it as well.....we are going to try it at home the next time we make burgers. My husband got their brisket and thought it was among the best he had ever had.

I visited this place on my trip. The food is very good. I had the Texan Sampler which had pulled pork, baby back ribs, brisket, hog leg, chicken quarter, spicy mac, and onion rings. So so good and I ate it all. Aye I had a very active day, lol. Great place to eat!!

We had some friendly service with some pretty good barbecue. The options for beer flights are pitifully lacking but it's a great price at $6. Really good BBQ sauces.

Ribs were fall off the bone with no fat, absolutely delicious! We had the BBQ Nachos and they were very good also! Service was fast and nice! We are visiting from Ohio and I'm so glad we stopped here for dinner after a long hike :)

My family and I ate here twice for dinner during a 4 day stay in Gatlinburg. What a terrific place! The food was incredibly good, including one of the very best beef brisket sandwiches I've ever had. Salad bar was outstanding too -- everything seemed fresh and well stocked. Frankly, the service was as good as the food. Incredibly friendly,... More

This place is a "must stop" if you're in the Gatlinburg area. They have some of the best Bar B Q anywhere. My wife and I stop in whenever we're in the area.

I've reviewed Bennett's before. We make at least one, sometimes two, trips to Gatlinburg every year and always make a point of visiting the Gatlinburg Bennett's for the breakfast buffet. That tradition is probably coming to an end. For one, the price of the buffet has been increasing. When I last reviewed the adult price was only 7 or 8... More

This was our idea of getting some "souther comfort" food while visiting from Chicago. The food was excellent. We all got a pulled pork sandwich of some kind and it was absolutely amazing (and very fresh!). Th mac & cheese was the best I have ever had. Our waitress was Jean, and she was so sweet and attentive! Would definitely... More

My husband and I are huge BBQ fans and even compete some on the local level for fun. We visited Bennett's a few years ago and thought it was awesome. However, on our most recent visit, we were somewhat disappointed. We felt like the food was over priced for the amount we got and the quality was not what it... More
