Pigeon Forge Vacation Tips: Top Five BBQ Restaurants

Blog Home : Category Posts : Top Five BBQ Restaurants in Pigeon Forge

Vacations in Pigeon Forge should be enjoyable and satisfying, especially when food is involved. Nothing puts a stamp on an excellent getaway more than enjoying the best BBQ restaurants in Pigeon Forge. That's why we've compiled the top five options in Pigeon Forge, plus a little extra to help you enjoy pure flavor while enjoying time with loved ones.

BBQ Dishes Galore

Without exception, the barbecue joints in the Smokies take pride in the wide selection of meats and sides they provide to hungry customers. From ribs and brisket to corn on the cob and biscuits, we've done the leg work for you and determined the best restaurants with BBQ in Pigeon Forge to try, as shown below:

Boss Hogg's BBQ Shack

This local BBQ restaurant is a favorite among locals and visitors for good reason. They offer all the favorites, like pulled pork, chopped brisket, slow-roasted ribs, and more. In addition, they offer several classic sides, from green beans and coleslaw to French fries and mashed potatoes.

However, the best part about visiting Boss Hogg's BBQ Shack is that they sell the meats by the pound and the sides in various sizes, making it easy to put in an order to go. This way, you can enjoy a picnic in the national park or take the food back to your cabin rental in Pigeon Forge.

Bennett's Pit Bar-B-Que

Bennet's is an all-time favorite in the Smoky Mountain region regarding excellent barbecue. They pride themselves on offering a wide selection of menu items filled with classic and unique options, such as:

  • Brisket
  • Sausage
  • Burnt Ends
  • Hog Legs
  • Catfish
  • Roasted Chicken

After selecting your meat(s), pair them with excellent sides like spicy mac and cheese, garlic biscuits, or the always-appropriate French fries. No matter how you choose to enjoy your barbecue, Bennet's Pit Bar-B-Que has your tastebuds and appetite covered.

Corky's Ribs & BBQ

Sometimes, the only acceptable barbecue in Pigeon Forge is Memphis-style. If that's true for you, then Corky's Ribs & BBQ is the stop for you and your guests. Enjoy everything from pulled pork sandwiches to ribs in tangy sauce.

In addition to those classics, Corky's offers smoked turkey and southern fried catfish, ensuring there's something for everyone to try. Pair the main course with several sides like fried okra and corn on the cob, and enjoy a food party.


Swing through Puckett's to keep the occasion casual yet flavorful. In addition to classics like ribs and chicken, they also offer mac and cheese covered in pulled pork and smoked meatloaf. Make the occasion a date night and enjoy the drink options provided at the bar, as well as the live music.


Are you a rib fan? If so, Calhoun's is a must-eat before returning home. Calhoun's specializes in ribs covered in their house BBQ sauce but they're more than happy to provide other favorites like pulled pork, steak, pork chops, and more. Pair the meat dishes with several side options that include but aren't limited to:

  • Coleslaw
  • BBQ Beans
  • Spinach Maria
  • Baked Cinnamon Apples
  • and More!

In addition to the food, Calhoun's offers signature cocktails, beer, and wine, the perfect accompaniment to your meal.

Inside Your Cabin

For those who love the idea of testing their cooking skills while on vacation, you're in luck. Our Pigeon Forge cabins offer fully equipped kitchens and grills, ensuring you can enjoy the cookout of your dreams in an authentic cabin setting. Make sure to check out the stores to find local sauces for extra flair. We recommend finding a Tennessee Whiskey BBQ sauce.

When not cooking yummy food, you'll love the additional amenities offered like:

  • Hot Tub
  • Jetted Tub
  • Game Room
  • Theater Room
  • Mountain View

Whether living it up in the cabin or exploring the top five BBQ restaurants in Pigeon Forge, one thing holds throughout the trip. You'll make excellent memories and have a blast from start to finish. Grab your perfect cabin and get ready for your best vacation!
