Full Service BBQ | About

Our Story


It all started in Maryville, TN in 2007 when chef and entrepreneur, Anthony DiFranco III, turned an abandoned gas station into a drive-in BBQ joint. Working off the old gas station structure and layout of the property, the name Full Service BBQ was born.

Since then, the business has grown tremendously and continues to flourish due to consistently great-tasting food, fast and friendly service, and love and support for the surrounding communities. In 2015, Full Service BBQ opened a second restaurant near downtown Knoxville in an old car-hop fast food location, keeping with the Full Service BBQ theme.

Whether you’re an existing fan, or soon to be one, we’ve provided some basic information on this site for your reference including our full barbecue menus for both locations. If you have any questions, give us a call.

Word of mouth is the best advertising and we appreciate all your continued support! We look forward to feeding you soon!
