We were in the mood for BBQ so we tried Bennett's. They food was very good. The brisket was perfect and plain (no sauce) so you could choose your BBQ sauce.

The smoked chicken, brisket and pulled pork were very good. I thought the baby back and beef ribs had good flavor but were dried out and chewy. The food and service overall was good.

We visit this place every time we go to Pigeon Forge. It's some of the best BBQ I've had. Even when you're in the parking lot you can tell it's a BBQ place just by the aroma. We had great service and great food. I know you'll like it!

Eaten here several times when I’m in town and never disappointed in the quality and service. The staff are very friendly and take great care of you. The price is a bit higher than most restaurants of this style but the atmosphere and food make up for it. I’m an employee at Ober Gatlinburg so they give me a nice... More

Outstanding service, great staff, and awesome pizza!!! A must to stop and eat at when in Gatlinburg. And if you do not want pizza there is always BBQ as well.
