This place is excellent. Smoked barbecue ribs, chicken, beef, and pork. Incredible smoked chicken wings for an appetizer. Baby back pork or the huge beef ribs.. Both are awesome, fall off the bone tender. The Texas sampler lets you try everything baby back ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, BBQ chicken, smoked sausage and two sides.

For breakfast they have an all you can eat buffet with scrambled eggs, bacon, pulled pork, sausage, grits, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, waffles, fresh fruit and much more.

All for a very reasonable price.. Highly recommended. I went three times in one week..

We stopped here for dinner. Had some of the best bar b que ribs EVER. The sauces are amazing, sides are good. Had the pleasure of being served by Adam. He was very friendly, very attentive for having only worked there for a couple weeks... Two thumbs up

“Always stop when im in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

at first I wasn't sure I was going to stop in Bennetts on this trip, but decided to go ahead and check it out. Strangely enough, I got the same server this year that I had last year. Her name was Heather. She was very nice, I kind of thought that's a good sign for a restaurant to be able to retain their employees like that. Im not too sure what our miscommunication was last year, but I was able to order a steak, baked potato, and salad. All of which I enjoyed very much. I will return to Bennetts next year.

“BBQ Beef Brisket”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014

For BBQ lovers, Bennete is the place to eat. There is usually more food on your plate than you can eat. My favorite is the beef brisket. Had it twice while we were in Gatlinburg Memorial Day weekend. Service is always friendly and punctual. One of our favorite eating places.
