My wife and I had lunch at their Brainerd location. Our first visit there. I ordered the Small Jr. Plate with BBQ pork. For sides I ordered Bar-B-Q Beans and Cole Slaw (BBQ restaurant classics). The regular BBQ sauce was good. The hot BBQ sauce was nice and warm but not too hot...just right for my taste. Actually, I ended... More

I asked once how long they cook their ribs. At least 16 hours. 2 sauces, mild and very warm. You cannot chew the meat off as you will be eating the soft rib bone. There is no gristle as it has been turned into jello. I put a rib longways in my mouth and pull out a clean bone .... More

This is the best BBQ in the area. I used to live in the area and I put this place on my list every time I return.

I just can't stop singing the praises of this restaurant and their employees! Yesterday our daughter had planned a small friends and family celebration and we were all coming from GA. I dropped off several bags of table decorations and told the employees I'd be back right after the ceremony to set up. We were all so pleasantly surprised when... More

One large stuff potato is probably two meals in one. Get it with everything! The pork BBQ on my sandwich was a little dry for me but their BBQ sauce really perks things up. Tried the HOT BBQ sauce was just plain hot - not particularly flavorful so I'd give that a pass. Cannot comment on the chicken or ribs... More

Good "Q" chicken, beef and pork and don't forget the ribs! Really good food and get it in a hurry. Great for getting food for 10 or so, good portions, good flavor. Very good BBQ, as good as you will get in this town.

The ribs were run of the mill nothing special. The service was good no complaints there. They were the only BBQ place open on a Monday though. In a pinch they came through.

We found Rib & Loin shortly after moving to SE Tennessee in 1992 and have been enjoying great BBQ there ever since. The pork BBQ stuffed potato is the signature meal that we usually get there. We also like to stop by the drive through and get a couple of pounds plus sauce for weekend meals. The double top secret... More

My fiance is a traveling welder, so we end up eating out a lot. This is one of the best places we have ever eaten at. The food is great, the service is great and your surroundings are very pleasant to look at.
