Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 July 2018

We were on our way home from Gatlinburg and researched tripadvisor for good bbq restaurants in Knoxville. This place is definitely off the beaten path and is next to a lake, so there's no need to be concerned about your attire.......come as you are to enjoy outstanding bbq and desserts. We had the ribs and chopped pork and both were delicious. The menu prices are good and the food portions are abundant. The staff are extremely nice and accommodating.Check this place out. You will not be disappointed if looking for quality bbq.

We eat here several times a year and the barbecue is pretty good, however, the barbecue burrito is great. I know, barbecue burrito? This little place sits in a protected cove on the lake and gets a lot of boat traffic, it is also home to the El Gigante, a 4 pound barbecue burrito with all the fixens.To my knowledge no one has ever beaten it, and when you see it you know why. The regular burrito however is very doable, but a big meal in its own right. They have three sauces to choose from, but for me it's the thick sweet sauce. They have plenty of other dishes, like some burgers and brisket, they also have a bar. There is air conditioned seating as well as outdoor ones, the staff are really polite and the service is prompt, hot and fresh. They do sell out of the ribs most every night, so if that's on the menu for you, I would recommend going early. The parking is tight also, especially since it's a boat ramp area also, so plan accordingly to insure a good time, they also have live music on the weekends. It's a small joint so beware, talking can be labor intensive at times, but all in all a great time is to be had for sure.

It is what it is - but it has phenomenal food. We got the sampler so that we could share all the different tastes they has. Not one thing was on the ok side - it was all Great and Superb - And they were very kind to the dogs as well.

We are new to the area so we asked the locals where to eat. Sweet P's BBQ was one of the recommendations. It's a little difficult to find but well worth the hunt. Fantastic ribs, pulled pork, and tender smoked brisket. Their best side is the Mac & Cheese, good Cole Slaw and Sauteed Greens n’ Things. We have been there 3 times so far and looking forward to our next visit. Haven't tried everything on the menu yet but working on it.

I absolutely love this restaurant. I had never actually been to it until the other day but they cater at our work all the time and finally decided to check it out. Really nice place right off of the river/lake so the sights of all the boats is an added plus. Overall not very expensive and very fast. I always get the BBQ sandwhich and mac and cheese. Their mac and cheese is honestly the best part of the meal and that is saying something cause their BBQ and sauces are amazing. If you are in the area would def. check it out!
