A group of us dined here while visiting Morrison TN. We had a group of twenty and we all were able to sit in the same room together. Brisket is sliced not pulled. Pork is pulled.

The smell of the... More

Praters has 2 locations and I have eaten at both of them. They have very good food in a very casual atmosphere suitable for a couple or family. The prices are reasonable and the staff was friendly and attentive.

We tried a variety of items and the best of them was just okay. Eat here if you have to but it is way overrated and very disappointing for an evening meal after a long day on the road. Above all stay away from the cheeseburger. A soft drink and peanuts from the local quick mart would be a much... More

Our first and hopefully not last trip. Friends on Short Mountain carried us over and it was GREAT. Brisket sammiches so big you can't hardly eat it all. Girls had catfish and frog legs. Didn't hear any complaints from them either. Very reasonable prices. Hope to go back soon. Wanna try there brisket platter.
