“Go on $5 Tuesdays”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

Buddy's is great yearround, but it's even better on $5 Tuesdays. You can get one of several dinners (pulled pork, pulled chicken, or half chicken) with 2 sides and a drink for $5. That's a great meal not many places can beat!

“Saturday All You Can Eat Ribs”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

We stopped in on 5/25/13 and the cashier suggested the all you can eat ribs. She said they were good so we ordered them. Wow, were we shocked that ribs that good came from a fast food place. If you have a Bubby's near you, go on Saturday night and try them. A server came around periodically with a basket of ribs, so you didn't have to keep ordering more.

“The worst BBQ EVER”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

The BBQ from Buddys is just plain nasty and inedible. Buddys has been an embarrassment to Knoxville for over 40 years! GROSS!!!
