We stayed in Wear's Valley this year and enjoyed a meal at Hillbilly's. It was very close and the folks very friendly.

Great place to stop on our way back from Cades Cove. Quick service and hot, delicious breakfast. They do tend to get busy so try to go earlier in the day.

The best place to have a good hot meal. We stopped in for breakfast with our grandson before going to the Titanic museum. We were one of the first for breakfast so we beet the crowd. Hillbilly’s is the place to go for those who...are familiar with the area. Great people serving great food. My wife had the blueberry pancake with bacon, grandson had regular pancake with bacon and I had my usual the veggie omelette with sausage and tater bites. Good to the last bite.More

The night before we had eaten in a place in Pigeon Forge. The food was good but it took 2 hours to get our food and eat. We started looking for a place off the main drag in Sevierville & Pigeon Forge and found Hillbilly's...in Wears Valley about 6 miles down Wears Valley road. The service was fast and friendly with immediate seating. The environment was entertaining with humorous "hillbillyism" on the walls and T-shirts such as "butter my butt and call me a biscuit." The food was good. The portions were ample and the prices were very reasonable. The menu has many of the usual options but it also has several interesting items with a twist and unique names. Traveling to Wears Valley will take less time than a typical wait at most any restaurant in Pigeon Forge plus there are interesting sights and activities along the way. I highly recommend Hillbilly's.More

ETHANS BACK. HillBillys is our place of choice for breakfast and lunch to if you are in the area. 8am-2pm 7days a week. Great people to serve you some great food. Great breakfast for sure. Try some of their Sweet Potato pancakes with the sauce,...awesome. My wife’s favorite and they’re big. They also have a breakfast buffet on Saturday and Sunday. Check’em out and come early.More

Read many Excellent Reviews about Hillbilly's on-line. Our visit met all expectations--food was delicious and plentiful. Prices are very reasonable. Pamela, our Server, was friendly and efficient. Despite being understaffed, staff worked well together to service many customers. Great Job, Hillbilly's. Thank You.

Back open for the season and we had our first visit as soon as we came to Pigeon Forge for lunch. We arrived a little late due to they close at 2pm, we arrived at 1:30. We got seated right away and our server, Vickie...greeted us promptly. We ordered our food and it arrived in a timely manner. Food was good, priced right and a laid back atmosphere. Vickie was great and updated us on the fire situation. Hillbillies is our go to restaurant especially for breakfast. Great food and people.More

We went all in and had country fried steak, eggs, biscuits and gravy. Biscuits were amazing melt in your mouth. They brought us two small biscuits with sweet drizzle on it when we sat down which was even better. I could have definitely had more...of those! Our cabin was a mile away so made for perfect breakfast stop on our way to hiking!More

This has become our favorite place for breakfast. A little out of the way from Pigeon Forge but we’ll worth it. Great delicious food, great service and great people. Located on highway 321 in Wears Valley. You won’t be disappointed, check out HillBilly’s Restaurant for...yourself.More
