First we wanted ribs and were told their was no ribs so we all ordered pulled pork. It was cold!!!!! The corn was over cooked and brown and the potato salad had a film on top. Went... More

My husband had the beef brisket plate. He enjoyed the brisket very much. I had the chicken plate. Both meats had a rub on them that were very good even without adding the 3 types of barbecue sauces they offer. I enjoyed my coleslaw with my meal. We both had the french fries, which tasted very good. We are not... More

We went to the first Hungry Bear location because we found it on Trip Advisor. Upon entering, we were told that they currently had a limited menu & suggested that we drive into Gatlinburg to their other location for a full menu. We were a little frustrated because we had just left downtown but figured worth the drive. When we... More

We ate at the Hungry Bear #2 and ordered pulled pork sandwiches. We are BBQ lovers and from NC - picky about our pulled pork. This place did not disappoint. The pork was flavorful, moist and tender. The sandwich plates came with 2 sides and they were good (Brunswick stew and mac-n-cheese). Can't speak for the chicken, ribs or brisket... More

It doesn't look like much from the outside, it doesn't look like much from the inside, but the food was good! I had the pulled chicken, my husband the pulled pork and my son the sausage special and all was good!

WE only got pulled pork sandwiches no sides or anything. We were going to have a big dinner later that night and did not want to eat too much for lunch. They were nice and juicy. A good portion size. We got the mild sauce and it was really good. A nice place to eat to sit outside and enjoy... More

I believe I understand the folks who gave 3 stars or less. The one issue we found here was the sides could have been better. I really wish the macaroni and cheese has been casserole style. That alone may have bumped my review up to 5 stars. I LOVE corn on the cob, but the one I had was not... More

We came looking for great ribs, we got amazing potato salad instead. Other than that there isn't much to say about Hungry Bear... the ribs were just "ok" and the beans were just from a can. The service was great and very helpful.
