Buddy's Bar-B-Q is an Eastern Tennessee chain that was developed with its first location in West Knoxville in 1972. The restaurant serves some of
the best BBQ in East Tennessee. Readers of the Knoxville News-Sentinel have voted Buddy's "The Best of Knoxville." Selected Buddy's Franchise
locations also serve a hickory-smoked breakfast for a down home taste. Breakfast is complete with biscuits, sausage, ham, bacon, and their own
On the main menu, you will also find shredded smoked pork, sliced beef, whole boneless chicken, ribs, smokie dawgs, baked potatoes, and
Buddy's famous hush puppies. While dining-in, you may be offered fresh hush-puppies at your table. Buddy’s now offers their soon to be famous
smoked chicken wings. Most of the locations are clean with a casual atmosphere and service is generally good. Be sure to cap your meal with
Buddy's famous Hot Fudge Cake. Since the distant down turn in the economy, Buddy’s Family Owned locations have switched from the industry
standard ketchup (HEINZ) to less popular brands. Buddy’s serves some of the best fries in town and its just a shame to have bad ketchup on them.
The Bearden location is the Flagship Restaurant as well as headquarters to the Buddy’s brand. Also located next door to the Bearden location,
you will find Bearden Banquet Hall which offers a variety of catering and party hosting options, generally top-notch service. Buddy’s is a family
business and generally tries to treat their customers the same as family. Buddy’s catering services are reasonable and quality driven.
