PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. — Puckett’s slow-smoked barbecue, authentic Southern sides and homemade desserts are officially being served in Pigeon Forge. The Tennessee-based restaurant opened its doors to the community last week, with a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration set for Tuesday, Sept. 10 at 5 p.m.
Andy Marshall, CEO of A. Marshall Hospitality and owner of Puckett’s, said Pigeon Forge has given his new restaurant a warm welcome.
“Pigeon Forge is such a unique community, one we have long desired to be a part of,” Marshall said. “We have been overwhelmed with the community’s reception to Puckett’s, and we are blessed to have the opportunity to serve the area’s many visitors and contribute to the taste of Tennessee hospitality they experience during their time here.”
Puckett’s will serve lunch and dinner through the end of September, opting to launch breakfast service on October 1. Until then, guests can enjoy meat and two plates with slow-smoked pulled pork or beef brisket with Southern sides like skillet mac and cheese, collards and smoked baked beans; cherry wood-smoked baby back ribs; chicken fried chicken or a house-ground burger, among other down-home fare, seven days a week. Daily chalkboard specials feature a selection of off-the-menu proteins, sides and a daily cobbler. Click here for Puckett’s menu.
The grand opening event will begin at 5 p.m. on September 10 at the restaurant, located at 2480 Parkway, with a ribbon cutting at 5:30 p.m. followed by a party. Modern-traditional country duo The Young Fables will perform as guests enjoy passed apps and specials from a cash bar. Those who wish to order from the menu on the grand opening night may reserve a table online.
Puckett’s newest outpost will continue the company’s long-standing tradition of giving back by donating a portion of proceeds from its grand opening day to the Boys & Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains.
