Tennessee barbecue is serious business; a big point of pride for the state. In Knoxville, family-owned Sweet P’s has been bringing old-school barbecue to its corner of Tennessee since 2005. Owner Chris Ford launched the catering business and now restaurant group with his wife and daughter, who is lovingly called Sweet P and inspired the restaurant’s name.
Whether you come for the hip ambience listening to live music in the trendy beer garden, or to eat a week’s worth of Mac and Cheese (no judgment), you’ll find everything you need here at Sweet P’s. When you dine at the restaurant you’re also supporting a local business run by a beloved Knoxville family. That makes the banana pudding at the end of the meal extra sweet.
