We ate a Ridgewood a couple times when we lived up there. I never was that impressed. Pig & Chick in Surgoinsville was better and you don't have to wait an hour to get in.

I'll be perfectly honest and say while I like the idea, my participation is likely to be erratic at best. Weekends would likely work better for me as well.

Keep in mind that Parson's Branch is one way from Cades Cove south to 129. You have to go around the Cades Cove loop road to get to it. If you'll be there during the week, traffic shouldn't be bad.

There's nice riding up around the lake, but that's a bit far for my "scenic route home from work" allowance. That would have to be a weekend ride.
