My husband and I love the family pack dinner. It's $24.99 and is dinner and lunch for the next day! Best potato salad I've ever had.

My family and I visit Bristol BBQ on a regular basis. We began doing so soon after they first opened. The BBQ is different from any other (and I mean as a quality difference) as our family prides ourselves as being anxious to try other brands and recipes. BBQ sauce is really great! We order large orders of BBQ dinners... More

Arrived at 10:30 a.m. and knocked on drive-thru window. Asked if we could get some BBQ to go that I could heat up at home later that day. They very graciously accommodated my request. We found the ribs excellent, the pork very tasty, and the beans wonderful. Some of the best we've ever had. Would certainly stop there again if... More

Great place for Barbecue! I recently told someone, "even their pop (soda, coke, etc - depending on where you're from) is better!" I usually order the pork platter. I do not care for slaw, but theirs is great. Same with potato salad. Baked beans are awesome - they have some pork in them. The bread pudding is a must for... More

Driving through Bristol on way to Baltimore and decided to stop after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. Awesome BBQ...I had the pulled pork sandwich and husband had chicken sandwich and both were awesome!!!! But....the loaded tots were on another planet! Will definitely stop on way back to Texas.

This BBQ place has BBQ loaded french fries, tater tots and baked potatoes! Their BBQ is delicious. They also have ribs that are to die for. But best of all is their funnel cake fries!. Haven't tried their brunswick stew but can't imagine that it would not be excellent as everything else is!

I have driven passed this little barbeque place on the Volunteer Parkway hundreds of times. I was never tempted to stop until I recently started hearing glowing reports about the great food. I had also noticed a line of cars wrapped around the building. So the other day, I decided to give it a try. I got the pulled pork... More
