Great Stuffed Potatoes

I have been eating here off and on for nine years. Although everything on the menu looks good, I very seldom get past their stuffed potatoes. Whether in is pork or chicken, they are delicious. You need to visit this place.

I should preface this review with the fact that I am NOT a Southerner and therefore every BBQ place I tried while visiting the South was a thing of beauty to me. That being said, this place was awesome. The meat was tender and everything was so delicious. It's not health food by any stretch of the imagination, but hey,... More

I've eaten at this place twice three years ago and again last November. I didn't choose the place either time. When I heard we were going for BBQ, I told my colleagues "The last time I was here (in Hixson, visting a supplier), I had the second-worst BBQ I've ever had. I hope it isn't the same place." Well, it... More

This place has good food and great service. It isn't Texas BBQ though....I am spoiled from my two years of living Texas. But we have eaten at Rib and Loin a lot in the past and will continue. Love the service and the ribs.

Friendly staff. Had decorations up for the holiday. Portions were HUGE! Sweet tea great. Baked potato was not as great as advertised.

Best 1/2 smoked chicken in Chattanooga. The barbeque, whether chicken, pork or beef is some of the best in the south. Great deserts and side items also! This is my wife's favorite place to eat also. She calls it THE PIG because of the way the sign looks.

Went there several times on a business trip. Had the three-meat platter and the pulled pork potato, which Rib & Loin is supposedly known for. All food was good, and the portions were more than adequate. Had trouble finishing the large potato with plenty of pork topping. Rating bordered on "excellent," but some crabby cashier lady issues prevented that. Recommend... More

Good BBQ. Baked beans were excellent. Waitress was good but could use a little extra training. If you are eating ribs it only makes sense that you will need more than one napkin. I think you shouldn't even have to ask because it is obvious. The atmosphere and food was great. If the Waitress was a little more attentive I... More

We stopped in on way to a Braves game. We of course got a different variety of food and just to say it plainly it was awesome. The service was really good and very fast for what you get.
