Tony Gore's Smoky Mountain BBQ & Grill #ad #SeviervilleCheap Is The New Classy

While on my culinary media tour last week, I noticed a name on the itinerary that I recognized: Tony Gore. Many of you know that I worked in radio before becoming a blogger. Most of that time was spent at a Country Station, but I also worked some at a Southern Gospel Station. And Tony Gore was included in the music that we played. I had no idea that he owned a BBQ restaurant in Sevierville, TN.

Tony Gore’s Smoky Mountain BBQ & Grill In Sevierville, TN

I go to the Great Smoky Mountains pretty often but I have never been to Tony Gore’s. Actually, I think I have never been to any BBQ places there. Ah, the travesty! BBQ is not something that I traditionally look for, but when I do have it, I enjoy it. I have never been to a BBQ restaurant quite like Tony Gore’s BBQ though. When you go there, you better be hungry. They aren’t messing around.

I ordered Chicken Tenders with Macaroni and Cheese. As I don’t know a lot about BBQ, I decided to order something that I knew I would love. Chicken Tenders are always a hit with me. These were very good, though, and the Macaroni and Cheese was amazing! And there was enough on my plate to feet an army. I am not claiming to be a dainty eater, lol, but there was no way I could finish that plate. I would love to meet the person who can.

Have you been to Tony Gore's in #Sevierville? If so, what is your favorite food? We are trying out the fried green tomatoes – served in a pig. :) #travel #TravelTuesday [sponsored]

The table also got Fried Green Tomatoes and Tony’s T Chips as appetizers. The Tony’s T Chips are insanely huge. I am talking 3 times the size of similar chips that you might get at a fair. One of our hosts, Carroll, told us that he once saw someone finish an entire order of those and then eat his meal. Wow. I need to see this once in my life. If you are hungry, trust, Tony Gore’s Smoky Mountain BBQ & Grill will not leave you that way.

They also brought us out dessert. The biggest slices of cake I had ever seen. I tried some of the Caramel Cake. It seriously tasted like caramel and was really moist. I was told that the other desserts were wonderful, as well, though I did not try them.

The food isn’t just plentiful. It’s really good. And the menu had a lot to choose from so that even the casual BBQ fan like myself can find plenty to eat. I think the hardcore BBQ fan will really be pleased. Of what I tried, my favorites were the Fried Green Tomatoes, Macaroni and Cheese and Caramel Cake, so be sure you try those. I had never visited Tony Gore’s Smoky Mountain BBQ & Grill before but I have some friends who love BBQ that I will be introducing to the restaurant very soon.
