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 got a BBq Potatoe and was pretty underwhelmed. There wasn't much on it, but what was tasted great. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit.

“Great BBQ food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

The food here at Bennett's is excellent! Reminds me of growing up in Southern California and going every Sunday after church to our favorite BBQ place!

Large portions, (plan on taking some home) very reasonable prices and great servers - Justin is our favorite, we always ask for him!

Make sure you try it out when you are visiting our beautiful Smokey Mountains.

“Good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

I ordered the BBQ trio & got Brisket, Chicken Quarter & Ribs. I also ordered a Hog Leg because I've never had one. The food was good. You could taste the smoke flavor in the food which is always a plus. The Brisket could have had a little more seasoning but over all, I was well pleased. It's a lot better than the Calhouns I had on my last trip. The waitress was very friendly & prompt. The food also came out in a timely fashion.
