Description: Bennett's Secret It's no mystery why Bennett's Bar-B-Que meals are so moist, tender and packed full of flavor. First, our pork ribs, chicken, chopped pork and beef briskets are basted in Bennett's own special sauce. Then, they're set over smoldering hickory wood and smoked for up to 14 hours. The heat and sauce penetrate deep into every layer of meat, turning it a perfect pinkish color while enriching every juicy mouthful with rich, smoky flavor. Since everyone likes different amounts of our mouth-waterin' sauce, we serve it warm on the side so you can pour on as much or as little as you like. After you've savored the last bite, we hope you'll agree that all the work we put into preparing your Bar-B-Que was well worth it!

“Great BBQ!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

My husband and I chose to dine at Bennett's Pit Bar-B-Que during our most recent trip to TN. We wanted BBQ, but didn't want to settle for some mediocre meal. We finally stumbled upon Bennett's (and its many reviews/awards) and were so glad that we did! The food is delicious and is very reasonably priced. I would recommend to anyone.

“Good Barbeque”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

While visiting Gatlinburg, we were looking for something different to eat. We saw the sign that said, "Voted best ribs" and decided to give it a try. The ribs and beef brisket were awesome! They were tender and smoked just right. The chicken was a little dry but the ribs more than made up for. They portion size was huge and I had enough to have lunch the next day. The staff was very friendly also. Try it if you're in the Gatlinburg/Pegion Forge area.

“Ok food, ok service, nothing special.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

Husband and I ate dinner here. We waited a short time for the waitress to visit our table but had decided what we wanted so this was not too big of a problem. We shared the Texas Sampler platter and the portion was not quite as big as i expected based on the price. Food was ok. Service was adequate. The only really annoying thing is when leaving the restaurant we are approached by a guy trying to get us to go to a timeshare meeting. Ugh. Can't believe the restaurant would allow someone to solicit it's customers as they are leaving. Try another restaurant if you want something really unique. But this place is ok for BBQ.

We arrived near closing time and the staff was very courteous and friendly. Food was tasty too! The pulled pork was delicious & the ribs were so tender... The meat just fell off the bone.

“PRETTY GOOD BBQ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013

I am not much of a bbq or meat eater, but I rather enjoyed the food, I really enjoyed the sauces at the table. The chicken was good and juicy, the ribs fell off the bone and were soooo tender. The coleslaw, baked beans and fries were great. We also got an order of the pled pork nachos (I believe thats what they were called), anyway, they were exceptional, dessert was pretty good, too!
