Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que

Better than good!

bbqSince moving to Texas, I have missed real bar-b-que! In Texas, bar-b-que is mostly beef brisket which is much different from the pit cooked, pulled pork bar-b-que that I was used to growing up as a child in Tennessee. So needless to say, while visiting in Pigeon Forge, eating a nice pulled pork bar-b-que sandwich is a must do on our itinerary. Dad and the little divas are usually good sports and let mom have her way on this one.

I could just taste the yumminess as we pulled into the parking lot of Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que. The parking lot was crowded which is usually a good sign that the restaurant is liked and serves good food. We were quickly seated and greeted by a very pleasant waiter. Our drinks were ordered along with some fried green tomatoes as an appetizer. Fried green tomatoes are a childhood favorite of mine. I remember helping my grandmother in her garden and begging to pick the green tomatoes. She would usually let us pick a few and then she would batter them in cornmeal and cook them for us. What a pleasant and tasteful memory!! Jellybean and dad must have enjoyed munching on them too while we waited for our meals because the plate was quickly empty.

Our meals arrived and a smile came across my face. Bennett’s offers their own special bar-b-que sauce that adds extra yumminess to their food. You can even buy a bottle to take home. No problems with food being left on any of our plates after this meal. Two favorites in one meal– fried green tomatoes and a yummy pulled pork bar-b-que sandwich. What more could you ask for!!!

If you are a lover of bar-b-que, then Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que is worth the stop. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, the staff is friendly, and the food is sure to please!!
