As we have always gone to the Smokies through Lenoir City, we typically stop at the gas station just off the interstate that has the Buddy’s BBQ attached. Every time we stop we always mention we need to eat here. This time we came home...More

We love barbecue and Buddy's is always good. The sides to go with the "Q" are delicious. Very handy for I-75 travel....right at the highway 321 exit. Stop in to enjoy some of Tennessee's finest food.

We took rib, pulled pork ang brisket slong with slaw and potato salad. Except for the rib, everything was rather dry and bland, the pp was only edible with lots of sauce (they only offer one sauce). Staff was very friendly and prices moderate.

Stopped here the past two years (on the way to Pigeon Forge) for the combo special: large pulled pork sandwich, fries, and a drink for $6.99. Great BBQ sandwich. Looking forward to next year.

I usually just get their carry out. Not a big fan of eating there ! Their family packs are always nice and the food is good and hot. They try hard to meet the needs of their customers.

My wife and I are sticklers for good pork barbecue and choose our BBQ restaurants with great care. We've had good experience with other Buddy's and stopped at this one on our way to Gatlinburg. It did not disappoint. The pork sandwiches were excellent, tasty,...More

Our hotel manager suggested we try either the Italian Gondolier or Buddy’s BBQ for dinner. We opted for Buddy’s and were less than pleased. The main complaint was the ribs. I don’t remember ever eating any that were tougher or chewier. Everything else, especially the...More
