“Good BBQ but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here in April 2012 while on the way to WV. The beef Q sandwich was excellent but was preloaded with sauce. I prefer mine naked so I can tell the quality of the meat before adding sauce. The sandxwiches come with the world's smaLleszt slaw and sides are overpriced. Service was good and the waitress was friendly.

“For my money, it's the best in Sullivan County”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

The war always comes down to Pardner's vs Ridgewood in Sullivan County. From an impartial outsider who has been to a lot of the great ones in KC, Memphis, St. Louis, Southern Illinois, and Alabama, I think Pardner's is every bit as good (and better) than its more famous counterpart Ridgewood. Both are great BBQ places, but I think the pork is tastier and retains the juicy flavors better than the meat at Ridgewood.

My favorite barbecue place. Maybe I have a different taste in barbecue than most people, because when I go to famous barbecue places where they supposedly really know how to make barbecue, it's nothing like Pardner's and I don't like it as much. Pardner's also has good chopped steak.
