Description: When folks ask for the key to making moist, tender, drop-dead delicious barbeque, they expect us to ramble on about sauce, marinades and rubs. Those are all important, but what it really comes down to is selecting the best meat and then slowly cooking and smoking that meat to perfection. We know that if we take care of business on that end, the pork, ribs and chicken that we put on your plate will be the best you ever tasted.

Sauces great, pulled pork smokey and amazing, ribs were juicy and precut, which saves the hands and rinse and wash afterwards. Yes its true they have the best potato salad on the planet. Todays batch and a big hunk of bacon in mine, (mouth drooling). Its the best bbq in Knoxville!

This is a good place for take out BBQ Pulled pork has exceptionally good taste with zesty sauces, even mild Memphis sauce has a kick. Great baked beans with pork or bacon and green peppers. Good cole slaw. Reasonably priced. Feed 3 or 4 for at home for about $20.

We moved to Knoxville 7 years ago; our previous "hometown" had 3 wonderful BBQ restaurants by which we judge all BBQ places. In 7 years time in Knoxville we found 1 BBQ place that was "just o.k." --- then we found Archers! Oh...my....goodness! (and I do mean GOODNESS!!) Their BBQ is amazing! Its not a fancy place, but the food makes up for it. We are so fortunate to live approximately 2 miles from their Oak Ridge Hwy. location. All their sauces are wonderful, their Loaded Baked Potato potato salad is divine and the collards...oh my the collards! I hate collards, have hated them all my life, but oh how I LOVE Archers' collards! Everything we have tried at Archers so far has been wonderful and the employees have been amazing as well. Not sure you'll like a side? As for a taste, they'll give you a sample to try before you buy. My husband always wants a Prime Rib dinner for his birthday, this year he wanted Archers BBQ! I can't say enough good things about Archers foods...you'll just have to come give them a try!

My wife and I went out of our way today to stop by Archer's. I am thankful we did. The prices are fair, the kids loved it and my wife and I loved it as well. I suggest the pork, but my wife's suggests the chicken. All of the sauces are fantastic. I couldn't decide, so I tried them all over and over. It is well worth the short drive off the interstate. You won't be sorry.

We were in Knoxville for the weekend and were looking for a restaurant that was not part of your typical big chains. Archers BBQ was great! It was late so they were out of ribs, which I am sure were delicious judging by the pork sandwiches that we had. The loaded potato salad was unlike any potato salad I have ever had. And the guys were so friendly. We will be back!
