We were looking forward for a local BBQ and they gave us it. Hungry Bear is a fast food restaurant. If you want to eat Barbecue but you want to get it fast you could go here. The quality of the restaurant was definitely better than any fast food restaurants. Although the quality was not soooo good they do bring... More

Worst barbecue we've ever had. We went because there were such great reviews but were concerned when we were the ONLY people here at 7 on a Saturday night. The ribs were BAKED, not smoked!! Pulled pork was mediocre. We actually had to go somewhere else to get our kids something to eat because they left hungry. Total waste of... More

We both got BBQ sandwiches. Mine was a rib sandwich. Bill's was the pulled pork. Both were excellent. They have several sauces. We liked two of them. The ribs meat was very flavorful.

We had the pork special... it was really good. The ribs and pulled pork were very good. The coleslaw was awesome. The service was better! We will come back.

It's a laid back little bbq joint in an old house, just a short distance from the traffic and congestion of the main Parkway. There was plenty of parking and no long wait, which was a big bonus on an incredibly busy October weekend. A friendly young guy took our order at the counter, and our food was ready at... More

When you pull into their parking lot you can smell the meat in the outdoor smoker-yum! They also serve chicken if you are not a fan of pork but we love their pulled pork sandwiches. It's a small place but they are fast and efficient. Nothing fancy but if you like southern coleslaw and pulled pork this is a good... More

Generally on our yearly visit we go to the original location. After walking around Gatlinburg we decided to just stop here and eat. We have eaten here before but it has been a few years. Glad to say the food was fresh and hot. The baked beans were a lot better than I remember. My wife was really impressed as... More

Went here for an early lunch, around 12. It seemed like everyone was scrambling to get everything together. We both ordered a pulled pork bbq sandwich (it was a bit dry), baked beans (tasted like they had dumped a pile of onions in it to match the amount of beans), and coleslaw (took one bite and returned it for chips)....

Food is great! We enjoy it whenever we can. My favorite is the brisket and ribs, green beans are great too. Really like the mild bbq sauce. The weather was beautiful so we ate outside. Fast service, great prices, delicious food!
