The Best Country Cooking in Pigeon Forge

Staying with us here at the Ramada in Pigeon Forge and planning out your trip? We hope you're coming hungry, because our fair mountain town is filled to the brim with delicious eats! From good old-fashioned country cooking to classic southern BBQ, you'll find incredible dining choices all up and down the parkway, just minutes from the Ramada. So if you're planning a bit of a food tour of the Smokies, we've whipped up a little guide to get you to some of the best spots around.


  • The Old Mill

Perhaps the most iconic dining establishment in Pigeon Forge, the Old Mill has been in operation for nearly 200 years! Started way back in 1830, the Old Mill specializes in wholesome cooking. Stop by in the morning for a country breakfast full of pancakes, biscuits, eggs, and bacon. Or enjoy a mouthwatering dinner of southern fried chicken, grilled rib-eye steak, or chicken and dumplings.


  • T. Hannah's

Another Pigeon Forge classic, J.T. Hannah's has been in business since the early 1900s, and for a long time, it was the largest business east of Knoxville. Stop in for a real dose of authentic Southern hospitality and comfort food. Juicy burgers, succulent steak, and savory pasta dishes populate the menu of this historic Pigeon Forge establishment.


  • Bennet's Pit Bar-B-Cue

Is any Tennesse trip really complete without chowing down on some authentic Southern BBQ? Bennet's famously serves some of the very best barbecue in the Smokies. You might need a full roll of paper towels after you're done with your tender rack of ribs, slathered in their signature sauce!


We love our food here in Pigeon Forge, and the options truly are limitless. Feel free to ask our friendly staff at the Ramada for more recommendations!
