BBQ here is excellent, very tasty and tender. However, if you have kids, this may not be the place for you. All kids meals are $7! $7 for a hot dog and fries is just ridiculous. Our friends ordered a chicken tenders kids meal for...More

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.

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...More
