The folks at Tennessee Barbeque providing outstanding catering services. They provide great meals at reasonable prices. Their hand cut ribeye steaks were a surprise. You don't think a barbeque place would have great steaks but they do. Great people, great food, great prices. If you are visiting the Livingston, Tennessee area, please stop by Tennessee Barbeque.

My great grand used to say that its the best bbq if the meat gets stuck in your teeth because it means its so soft it slides threw. Good food and the mac and cheese its the best thing. Service people are just so darn friendly. Very good.

I had the catfish and fried green tomatoes. Big meaty catfish filets with s nice corn mill breading. Hush puppies were better than average and the fried green tomatoes were ok.

My girlfriend and I went here from a cabin in Standing Stone State Park. It was not on many local suggestions, but was fabulous! Being the picky eater that she is, my gf had chicken fingers which she said were good. I had a catfish plate which was rather generous. The meals come with 'hoe cakes' that are best described...

Description
We are a small town, family owned restaurant. We can seat 60 people inside. We have a two small private rooms. One will seat 12 and the other seats 20. We have a small outside patio that will seat 15. Our menu is of course smoked meats. Pulled pork, pulled turkey, beef brisket and chicken halves are offered certain days each week. We have smoked meats fresh each day. We also feature a grilled hamburger and hand patted hamburger steak as well as chicken tenders. We hand bread our own fried pickles and make a huge pork nacho. We make our own potato salad, cole slaw and baked beans. Our deserts are homemade each day. Our Banana Pudding is a must try!
