“I went to the Central/ Callahan location for the pulled pork Sunday Special this evening (6/12/16) and got the 50% off carry out deal!! It was some of the best I’ve had in a while.

“I have eaten here several times. I highly recommend the ribs (of course), the BBQ beef nachos are heavenly (I added a generous topping if lemon juice and holy jalapeno sauce to kick it up), the potato salad is unparalleled, and the two for Tuesday special was very pleasant. Essentially, I have not had anything…

“Best ribs I have ever had, and I are very picky. The Holy Jalepeno has changed my life. If it was acceptable to drink it was water, I would. I order every other week, minimum, and am utilizing their catering for my next office appreciation event. Thank you for existing.”

“Fantastic soul food! Great service and nice atmosphere!”


We were passing through Knoxville and one of our party had a hankering for BBQ. We all agreed, so I did a quick Tripadvisor check, and Archers was at the top of the list. It turned out that we were only five miles from the Bearden location, and it was a short hop off I-40.…


I have recently stumbled upon this restaurant in Powell and LOVE IT!!!! I love the choices of sauces, you get a lot for your money, and it is vey affordable. The staff are very friendly and I feel comfortable there.


After spending two days eating bbq at other places our craving was still not satisfied until Archers! Amazing food and exactly the type of bbq we were looking for! Keep up the great work!!

While out traveling we always keep an eye out for good bbq joints & this didn’t disappoint. All the sides were good, we had collard greens, baked beans, & green beans. But the ribs were phenomenal!!! All of the sauces were good but the ribs didn’t need em. Definitely a must stop!

Probably the best barbecue in Knoxville. The Ribs are great too. I go for lunch all the time and service is great and quick.


Excellent ribs and service. Good pulled pork and tasty sauces. Streamlined “fast food” decor, so not the ambiance one might expect or hope for- but you can sit comfortably and have a beer – no one is rushing you out the door.


This is the BEST BBQ in Knoxville. HANDS DOWN! It was our first visit and I can’t wait to go back. It’s going to be a new addiction. I’m a Food Writer and Foodie – says a lot.
