What about Rouxbarbs?! Their spare ribs are dry rubbed and smokey, they have a great texture and come with a variety of seasonal BBQ sauces. They are definitely the best in town! If you haven’t tried the BBQ at Rouxbarb’s you have to!
The best BBQ in Knoxville is NOT in Knoxville. It’s in Piney Flats; Ridgewood BBQ. Its the best. period.
@Thomas – you’re not lying there. I grew up in the Tri-Cities and one place my parents always took me was Ridgewood. It’s the best in the country, not just East TN.
