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!

I had the beef brisket and it was melt in your mouth-wonderful! I did not even put BBQ sauce on my sandwich. The brisket was full of flavor and so moist I did not want to cover it up with sauce. I tasted my husband's pork and it was just as good! They know how to do BBQ right! Our waitress was very kind and she was a great server. The cole slaw was overall good, but a little watery. My only really disappointment was the fries. They were very much so over cooked. I really didn't need them anyway after eating all that brisket! It was so delicious!

Dear Hshaner,

Thanks for taking the time to review Bennett's after your recent visit. We always appreciate hearing from our customers, whether it's good or bad. First of all, thank you for all your kind words about the food and service. I'm really sorry that we messed up your fries. My guess is the boys in the kitchen were a little backed up and let some fries go out that shouldn't have. I'm very very sorry and urge you to, next time, tell your server or even a manager. Our managers are there to insure your happiness.
Until next time, all the best in travels and dining to you and yours.

Sincerely,
Jonathan

We went to Bennett's BBQ (Pigeon Forge location) for dinner (used a 10% off coupon from tourist coupon book..hint..hint) on a Wednesday night around 5:30 pm. They were busy but we were seated right away. The host & server were friendly. We ordered 1 full rack of baby back ribs w baked beans (great taste/seasoning) & mac&cheese (average,not bad but server hyped them up) and 2 salad bars ($3.99 w entree $10.00 solo). We split a rib plate & both enjoyed the salad bar (cornbread salad was a 1st & very interesting). Our food came out so fast we hadn't even received our salad plates yet but they offered to put our ribs under a heat lamp etc til we finished w our salads (we chose to keep them & eat w our salads). Ribs were fall off the bone tender & 4 sauces were offered per your taste. You won't leave hungry! Great atmosphere for a pricier BBQ night out! They also offer a breakfast buffet (10% available for that too) but sadly we weren't able to get back there on time. Early morning jacuzzi therapy @ our cabin took top priority. ;) Best meal & friendliest service we experienced in Pigeon Forge area!

For less than $30 dollars we had enough bbq chicken, potato salad, slaw, bbq beans, corn bread with plates, etc. in our room to feed at least five if not six. Best deal going on food in the Smokies.

We enjoyed Bennett's a lot. We had lunch one day and enjoyed he barbeque so much we went back the next day for dinner.

For the lunch we found coupons for 15% off, and for dinner one for 10% off. The lunch menu is less expensive and better value than the dinner menu. We had a great meal both times, but our service was better at lunch and the meal cost a good bit les.
