Good BBQ

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... read 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.

I recommend the loaded baked potato, but regardless of your BBQ preference you'll probably find your meal to be among the best BBQ in the city.

The outside decor is what drew us to stop. It looked like a cool place to enjoy some good barbeque. I ordered the pulled pork & enjoyed it very much. My son ordered the grilled chicken salad & said it was fabulous. Neither of us could finish all the food we were given. There was plenty of room between the... More

I stopped here for lunch after hearing wonderful things about it from others. So glad I did! The food was good, fast and friendly service, even jets taking off from the airport nearby made little noise. When I want barbecue again, this will be my first choice. Rib and Loin also does a tremendous catering business. Group of 500 dying... More

Great food. Very reasonably priced. Don't blink though. Once you order your food it's usually at your table in less than 5 minutes. Now that's speedy service! Great BBQ. My favorite is the stuffed potato. Fantastic!

In the mood for some "real" BBQ and really didn't want to go to a "chain restaurant". Looked in TripAdvisor and found this place was not too far from the hotel that were were staying at. Found they had an online menu so took a peek before heading out. Once we drove into the parking area, the smell coming out... More

My husband and I took a chance on the rib and loin for our Memorial Day bbq meal. My husband had the half rack of baby back ribs and I had the pork plate. Both meals were excellent! The service was great and the restaurant was clean - will definitely return!!!
