Stand inside for just a few minutes, and you quickly realize that this place is something special. There are no strangers that eat here. Seemingly every patron is a regular, and even newcomers are treated just that way. It's more than smoked meats in here, it's a bustling hub of friends and family. Shuford's Smokehouse takes the classic barbecue joint and mixes in a heaping helping of southern hospitality, and the food? The food's good, you can bet on that.

The real deal!

We met family for an early supper as we were driving through Chattanooga. We Wisconsinites wanted "real" BBQ. Don't let the barn-like exterior and Alabama crimson tide shrine inside fool you. The food was amazing... From the smoky ribs to the pulled pork. The sides were big and everyone raved about... read more

We stumbled upon this place while searching for a different BBQ place and we're glad we stopped by. The look of the building gave us great confidence in the BBQ. The "baby" hot sauce was fantastic! It had just the right amount of kick without being overwhelming. If you want more kick, they have "real" hot sauce in the back.... More

I just ate there again after being out west for 5 years. Schufords did not disappoint and is still the best barbecue restaurant in town. The banana cream pudding is to die for. The pulled pork is world class. Their sause is awesome.

We ate at Shuford's BBQ before we headed home from our weekend trip to Chatanooga! Service was great and Jeff the owner was very friendly! He sat down with us, talked with us a while and treated us like family. We recieved good portions at a good price. The mild bbq sauce was our favorite! There is nothing fancy about... More

I was over-nighting in Chattanooga and in search of good carry-out to take back to the hotel after 10+ hours of driving time. I was not terribly impressed with the pulled pork (I prefer much smokier versions), but it was tender and the sauce options (I used some of the spicy and some of the sweet/regular) were yummy. The ribs... More

If you are heading up Signal Mountain, Shuford's Smokehouse is a great place to stop for BBQ. It has been open for years and it shows. No fancy decor but their food is really good.

Shuford's has a local reputation as THE place for BBQ on the north side of Chattanooga. The food is acceptable and the atmosphere is unique, especially if you are a Crimson Tide fan. However, the meal I had recently was only mediocre. It is a funky, fun place to visit and certainly not an antiseptic chain restaurant--just don't expect to... More

Went through the drive-through for BBQ to go. Meat was really just average. Same for the BBQ sauce. This place had mediocre food at best.
