We were looking for an authentic BBQ experience in Pigeon Forge this past weekend, we decided to stop at Tony Gores. It looks like a down home kind of BBQ place except for the $$$$ tour bus parked in the parking lot proclaiming the BBQ king or some such, what's up with that? To be fair, there is a sign... More

Read the reviews which seems to sum up to good food but long wait for a table (mine over 1 hour), only to then have at least another 45 minutes wait for the food. I'm thinking that they must assume that most customers are tourist and not long term customers. Good luck with that

I always visit Tony Gore's barbecue restaurant when I am in the Sevierville/Gatlinburg area. The service and the food is absolutely incredible. Not only is the barbecue wonderful but the desserts are worth it all. I would highly recommend that if you are in the Smoky Mountain area that you visit Tony Gore's barbecue.

Friendly waiter. Food was good. Atmosphere was good, enjoyed the southern gospel music artists photo's that surrounded the dining area. Pricing is typical with most BBQ pits.

The food was pretty good and the portions are huge. We did enjoy our meal and the atmosphere was nice. The one thing I didn't like was the gratuity was added to our check. I understand most restaurants have a certain percent gratuity for tables of 6 or more (We had 6 at our table) however there was nothing on... More

My husband & I stopped by Tony Gore's to pick up supper to take back to our cabin after a long day of shopping. We ordered the fried dill pickles, three famous pigs & brisket sandwich. The fried dill pickles were good especially with the homemade dipping sauce. We were able to eat them while they were still hot before... More

Looking for some awesome BBQ lunch and stopped in at Tony Gore's. So I get the sign about it not being a 'fast' food restaurant but service really could have been a bit faster. Waiting to give our order, waiting for the food-over 30 minutes before our appetizer came out. The appetizer platter came out hot and tasty- fried pickles,... More

Really nice atmosphere. The signs outside CLEARLY state there will be a wait , but we noticed people a little inpatient. The ribs are fall off the bone and the brisket and catfish are AWESOME! Tony took pictures with us that I couldn't download. Now the cake, take it home but be prepared to spend 10 bucks!!! We hated the... More

This place actually has a sign out front telling you to "go on down the road" if you want fast service. That's an accurate description of what you can expect. You will probably have to wait to be seated, and then wait again to have your order taken, and then wait some more for the food. But if you are... More

Came in here for lunch with my wife. I got BBQ Nachos and she got the BBQ sandwich. They have about 5 different sauces that you can put on your BBQ. (Sweet, Honey Mustard, Vinegar, Hot, Teriyaki). Everything was pretty good. Waitress was nice and country-like. Would return.
