Top 3 Restaurants For The Best Biscuits and Gravy in Gatlinburg
No Gatlinburg vacation is complete without an authentic southern breakfast. One of the most unique and savory dishes featured in a classic Tennessee breakfast is biscuits and gravy.
Biscuits and gravy became a regional favorite after the Revolutionary War, when Americans had to make do with sparse supplies. Southerners needed a cheap, tasty meal that was hearty enough to provide energy for a hard day’s work. The resulting dish consists of a soft biscuit smothered in a gravy made from white flour, milk, and pork sausage drippings. Often times, the gravy also contains bits of bacon, ground beef, sausage or other meats.
Ready to try this mouthwatering meal for yourself? We’ve found the top three restaurants in Gatlinburg for biscuits and gravy.
1. Mountain Lodge Restaurant
The Mountain Lodge Restaurant in Gatlinburg is very proud of its biscuits and gravy. Made completely from scratch, the Lodge bakes large, light, fluffy biscuits and their gravy is loaded with big chunks of sausage. The restaurant brags that their biscuits are “the best in town”, and they certainly have no trouble defending this reputation. The Mountain Lodge Restaurant serves breakfast all day and is open from 7am to 3pm.
2. Bennett’s Pit Bar-B-Que
Although Bennett’s Bar-B-Que may be most famous for its ribs, this restaurant also makes a mean breakfast. From 8am - 11am, Bennett’s offers an all you can eat breakfast buffet complete with pancakes, french toast, bacon, sausage, ham, omelets, grits and of course, biscuits and gravy. The buffet costs $ 8.99 for adults, $4.99 for kids, and nothing for children under 3 years old.
Bennett’s country biscuits are served with a white sausage gravy over a bed of home fries. There are two Bennett’s Bar-B-Que locations, one in Gatlinburg and another in Pigeon Forge. Be sure to check through local tourism magazines and brochures for Bennett’s coupons before you visit.
