I'm looking for some opinions on the best ribs in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area.....something with a lot of meat and tender.

It's really hard to beat Tony Roma's.

Tony Romas or Texas Road House! If you want a buffet which includes Ribs go to Wood Grill around 430P just as they come off the grill. YUM!!!

I can't speak for the other rib shacks mentioned here. But I can say I've always gotten good ribs at Corkys in Pigeon Forge. (love their rib sauce) and the pulled pork sandwichs are really good too.

personally i really like mine, drunken ribs. marinated in jack daniels and coke. sprinkled liberally with some mesquite after marinating. throwing on the grill and adding some jack daniels based bbq sauce during the last 5 minutes of grill time.

but eateries, tony roma's throws a good rib down

Try Bennett's or Calhoun's in Gatlinburg, or Little River BBQ in Townsend. I think you'll find them all superior to Tony Roma's. Corky's are pretty good too.
