We USED to enjoy eating here. We looked forward to it. Not anymore. Ate there for lunch today. The fries tasted like they were warmed over in the microwave. The turkey texture tasted like sand. And the most disappointing thing is that it was filthy....Not just a few tables here and there that needed to be cleaned but it was absolutely dirty- the floors of the entire restaurant were dirty. Looked liked they had not been mopped in days. No paper towels in bathroom s. I didn’t want to touch the condiments on the tables. The drink station was also suspect. Bugs flying around and open containers of tea. I’ll stop there.More

I have not had the pleasure of eating here. I live in New Jersey and have an aunt who is recovering from surgery. I wanted to find a restaurant nearby where her daughters could do take out for her. I called yesterday and asked about...a gift card for her. They were wonderful and hand delivered it to her today! My aunt and her family were thrilled, and said they have just recently ordered from them and the food is delicious. I can't wait to try them out next time I visit the area. Thank you so much!More

Stopped here with friends after a swim meet for lunch. Had lots of different BBQ items, and all were great! I loved the sweet potato fries and the smoked potato was also fantastic! Can’t go wrong here! Great atmosphere and friendly staff.

Stopped at Braeden’s Barbecue for lunch while we were visiting family in Kingsport. Our party had pulled pork and pulled turkey sandwiches, with a variety of sides, including cole slaw, home-made chips, and fries. All were good. I ordered the cole slaw to put on...my sandwich, as the sandwich didn’t come with any condiments. Again, cole slaw was good, but I’ve had better. This was an order-at-the-counter place, so I won’t comment on wait service, but the counter staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, I would come again, if in Kingsport and would rate worthy of 4 out of 5.More

I ordered the pork platter and BBQ beans and Cole Slaw. The beans were so so but the BBQ was the worst I ever had. Very dry and no taste. The only thing that was any good was the Cole Slaw. My last trip for...sure!!!!!!More

We were starving and felt like getting bbq. I got the turkey sandwich, both my husband and son got the brisket sandwiches and we even had the bbq pork nachos, which are potato chips with the trimmings. I thought it was good but both my...son and husband did not. My turkey sandwich was small, I ordered the small, but it seemed like it was more bun than meat. The sparse meat that was there was good though. My son and husbands sandwiches were supposed to be the same, they were not. My husband had good brisket, all meat, my son had mostly fat and a very small amount of meat. He didn’t say anything, just pulled out the fat. It was a very disappointing meal.More

What has happened to Braeden's when serving take-out?? We have enjoyed Braeden's occasionally, tried other BBQ in the area, but generally prefer what Braeden's offers. Today, we ordered take-out BBQ sandwiches and discovered that the meat was excessively dry, so dry the sauce would not...reconstitute it to make it palatable. On our last visit, we ate in the restaurant and enjoyed a moist and palatable pulled pork BBQ. The contrast between the meat quality of that earlier experience and today's is drastic and disappointing. We wondered if today's serving was leftover meat from yesterday- reserved for take-out orders, which customers would not likely bother to return. We have often taken visiting business associates who have praised the food, but I am now hesitant to do so, based on today's experience.More

My family enjoys this little, quaint restaurant so much! Kids night is a plus! If you've never tried it, then you're missing out!

This place is totally informal with outstanding barbeque. I would say it was a hidden gem but the place was packed -- lots of people agree that the barbeque is outstanding. We ordered the pulled pork sandwiches -- even the sides (baked beans, homemade chips,...fries) are really good. Highly recommend. They need a bigger parking lot in addition to lots more tables.More
