Known to many as the “best in the South,” Prater’s Bar-B-Que can feed thousands at a company picnic or provide a mouth-watering half-rack of ribs for your work-day lunch. That’s not to mention the ribeye steaks, specialty sandwiches, burgers, catfish and hand-battered fried chicken. Customers keep coming back because the food is delicious and affordable … and there’s just something special about that homemade BBQ sauce.

Most notably, Prater’s has been recognized as the longest active food vendor at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester. Gary began serving BBQ to the masses at the first Bonnaroo and has continued to set up a booth each year. Prater’s was voted #1 in Rolling Stone Magazine’s top things to do at the festival.
