I like bar-b-que but admit to not being an expert in it. I've lived in several cities and states with famous bar-b-que of different types and like most of them. Usually I get brisket sandwiches which is what I ordered here. I live in Texas now so ordered the Texas style brisket sandwich since I tend to like it. It... More

Love pardeners barbecue . Some of the best barbecue you can eat. Local family owned just makes it even better! Support small Local business.

Food is good but nit exceptional. Service was very spotty this time. While our waitress was friendly the service was slow and the dining room staff looked rough. One of the busboys was bearded, pierced and had an upside down cross around his neck. No hairnet no beard net etc. because if this we won't be back.

We were in Bristol the weekend of the battle. We decided to try this place, the food was very good. They were extremely busy. It is centrally located right on main artery. We wI'll eat here again.

Great food, great service! Private rooms if needed. Owners are a huge support to communities. Best "small town feel" in the area!

I think this place has potential, but I don't know if it really want's to do better. Our server was nice but she was just not that good, she didn't bring out the appetizers until after the main meal was brought. It took way too long to get our meals also. Then we were checking out and the lady doing... More

There are truly no word to express how bad the customer experience is here but I will try. No air conditioning running in 85 degree weather. Waitress forgot to take our order, when she did bring the food that was the end of her, no check back, or refills ... nothing. After paying our bill which was $30 for a... More

I am from the east Tennessee area, but now live in middle Tennessee. When you get BBQ here you don't get BBQ cooked in the sauce - to me that is not real BBQ. When we went to visit family last weekend, I knew that Pardners would be on our list of places to eat as I hadn't been there... More
