We stopped here because it was recommended it us for some authentic Tennessee Bar B Q and they were right. The food was AMAZING! I got pulled pork with a salad bar and my boyfriend got the spare ribs. Both were amazing and the salad bar was sooo big and offered so many southern salads. We definitely recommend this place!!!!

We love Barbeque and always try to get to a barbeque place wherever we travel. Prices were higher than average. The salad bar was ok- pretty good selection -looked a little tired.The blueberry mini muffins at the very far corner ( almost missed them) were very good. Two of our party also had sandwiches- beef brisket and pulled pork- both disappointing in size and flavor- both a bit dry. Sides were average portions- mac & cheese good in a Velveeta/Cheese whiz way, green beans were canned and had bits of onion in them.We would not really recommend this as a great place- even the older woman who seated us was rather grumpy. But maybe we just hit a bad day. I am comparing this to other local Barbeque places we have been at at other destinations.Next time in Gatlinburg we will try a different place.

One of the best BBQ we had.

We ordered the Baby Ribs, and the Big Daddy platter. Also the sampler for appetizer.

My favorite was the pulled pork. The ribs were very good too.

They have very interesting sauces (sweet, tangy, hot) which we found to be very interesting and special.

Take note though, the portion was very huge. There were 4 of us and we shared an appetizer, and 2 entrees, and we were stuffed.

We have been eating at Bennett's in Gatlinburg for years, but this visit was disappointing. The soup and salad bar is still a good deal, with two types of soup. Some of the offerings on the salad bar were not as fresh as they could have been. We like their pulled pork, but we did not want to pay what they now charge for it. Truthfully, Sonny's pulled pork is as good-if not better--and much more reasonably priced . . . and their portions are larger. No complaints about service though; our server was attentive and courteous. This may have been our last visit; there are so many restaurants to choose from.

The BBQ at Bennett's is always outstanding. Another thing we enjoy about Bennett's is the friendly staff. They go out of their way to make your visit pleasant. Good food and a great staff makes a wonderful combination.
