This was a delicious surprise. The BBQ was excellent. Good family atmosphere. Prices reasonable. Service great! If I am ever in the area again, I would return.

Very nice restaurant , with a great history going back a lot of years. Food was good and did not need any of the sauces on the tables. Service was good. I recommend this place for good barbeque. I had the ribs and the sides were great.

First time to Pratt's, but won't be our last! It was DELICIOUS! Spouse and I got Brisket sandwiches, one with fries, one with potato salad. The brisket was SO tender! The Texas Best sauce was wonderful on the brisket. Next time, must save room for Banana Pudding!

Pratt's reminds me of Dave's Famous but with more sauces. I had a three meat combination; pulled pork, brisket and ribs. The ribs were hidden by an overabundance of sauce. The pork was acceptable but dry. The brisket was rather dry. I'd go back with friends, but this is far from my favorite BBQ place in the Tri-Cities.

My mom and I stopped here to eat as we arrived in town for a concert. It was very clean and the staff were very nice. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich which was very good. They had a selection of 7 different bbq sauces on the table! My problem was that I didn't care for any of them. I,... More

Always great service and food can't be beat. Try the beef brisket or the meatloaf both out of this world.
