If there is one thing that everyone in the Smoky Mountains can agree on it’s barbecue. We might not always know how we want to spell it, whther it be barbecue or BBQ but we know that we like and we love to eat it. In Gatlinburg, one of the places to go for great BBQ is one of those spots that you go to dine on famous, award winning BBQ with an awesome staff and an even better atmosphere.
At Bennett’s, meat is king. From smoked sausage to pulled pork and everything bbq’d in between, Bennett’s have been serving BBQ for decades. Smoked flavor drips from every morsel of food that gets brought to your table. The best example of what this restaurant does is by looking at one of their biggest and baddest plates of food: the Texan Sampler. This plate of food comes with pulled pork, beef brisket, smoked sausage, chicken and baby-back ribs. Yes, you read that correctly, you get all 5. Generous portion sof each make sure that you are getting well fed and that you will leave full and happy. You also get to try a little bit of it all. Of course, if you want something a little bigger – Big Daddy’s Ultimate Combo – FOUR baby-back ribs, TWO hog legs and a 1/4 pound of pulled pork. Bennett’s knows how to make their guests happy, keep the food coming.
The staff and the cooks at Bennett’s have been doing this for a long time. They get you seated, get your order and start bringing you food. It is no wonder that this restaurant keeps winning awards and that at night throughout the busiest part of the year that they are standing room only. The servers are top notch and can answer any question you have about the menu. The cooks are also out of this world and you don’t have to worry if your steak will come out right when you are sitting in a booth at Bennett’s.
In Gatlinburg, Bennett’s is located toward the end of River Road, if you are headed toward the GSMNP. They have their own parking lot, they are centrally located and if you want to walk, they are easy to get to. In fact, if you decide to ride the Aerial Tramway to Ober Gatlinburg you will pass directly over Bennett’s as you start up the mountain. Try Bennett’s tonight if you are in the mountains. Or maybe the next time you make the trip to Gatlinburg you can add them to your list of places to eat. Strap on the feed bag and give Bennett’s Pit BBQ a try.
