When you think of summertime food, I’ll bet barbecue is at the top of the list. If you’re in East Tennessee and craving some delicious southern barbecue, then Buddy’s Bar-b-q is the place for you. (Of course, it’s great to eat year round!) As a Morristown wedding venue, we know Buddy’s well and would recommend them for any of our events, large or small.

Buddy’s Bar-b-q opened in 1972 in West Knoxville and has grown over the years – both in popularity and locations. This Knoxville institution has expanded to fourteen locations from Athens to Morristown and everywhere in between. They serve up southern delights like hickory-smoked pulled pork, tender ribs, hawg back potatoes, smoky wings, hearty baked beans, and homemade desserts like LaMuriel’s Lemon Ice Box Pie or Hot Fudge Cake.

 

Buddy’s Bar-b-q is great anywhere!

You can bring the family out to eat or take it home with you. Buddy’s offers great family packs (for 5 or 10 people) that come in a cool box with a handle. It’s got plenty of bar-b-q, sauce, buns, three shareable sides, cookies, plates, napkins, and forks. It’s a great option for picnics, poolside meals, and tailgating. If you’re hosting an event, Buddy’s has you covered with catering options as well. Whether you’re having an old-fashioned family reunion, a charming wedding reception (perhaps at our Knoxville wedding venue), or something in-between, you can have the best food in town for your event.

While Buddy and LaMuriel Smothers started the business, their children grew up in the restaurant and have taken the reins now. They took their parents’ philosophies to heart, treating customers like family and still providing delicious food at a great price in a homey atmosphere. The kids have also continued their dad’s mission of giving back to the community, especially through the Thompson Cancer Survival Center.

So, next time you have a hankering for some finger-licking-good barbecue, join the millions of people that have walked through the doors of these restaurants. You’ll feel good about supporting this community partner. You’ll feel welcome in the family-style setting. Most importantly, you’ll feel full after stuffing yourself with tender, smoky meats and sides that will rival grandma’s cooking. Just don’t forget to save room for dessert!
