Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

The BBQ pork plate with two sides is a great value and so good! The food always tests fresh and never had any complaints

“Fast-food style BBQ”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

We've eaten at Buddy's many times, but we're only going there now on Tuesdays when the have the $5 plates. The main reason is that the food is good, but not great. There are no other pure BBQ restaurants in town, but there are restaurants in town that have BBQ pork on the menu and it's better than here. Dean's and Razzleberry's in the old town square, for example, both have a much better pulled pork plate.

Buddy's bar-b-q is a regional chain fast food restaurant with their headquarters (and conference center) in nearby Knoxville. This place has pork, beef, and chicken barbecue, including pulled pork, pork ribs, beef brisket, chicken and ham. Sides include fantastic hush puppies, baked beans, cole slaw, fries, corn on the cob, and more.

This store has a drive-thru as well as a dining room for eat in. In addition to individual orders, this story has Family Packs, packaged barbecue and sides to feed five people. Great for a picnic or to take home for an easy meal.
