The Original Location

The original Calhoun’s two-level rustic barn structure (with signature silo) provides an atmosphere filled with relics of the picturesque farmlands of East Tennessee. It is convenient to all of West Knoxville, as well as Oak Ridge and Maryville, via the Pellissippi Parkway.
In 1983, the first Calhoun’s, a big barn-like structure, opened in West Knoxville as a tribute to the agricultural roots and great barbecue traditions of Eastern Tennessee. Within a year of its opening, the restaurant’s signature hickory smoked baby-back ribs won the title of “Best Ribs in America” at the prestigious National Rib Cook-Off. It was clear a tradition of greatness had been born.
Located at 10020 Kingston Pike at the intersection of Kingston Pike and Interstate-40 (Pellissippi Parkway).
