Great sides

While I think the pork was above average the sides are all really good. Always have had good service here and it has good value too.

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!!!

I traveled to Chattanooga for work and wanted to find a real rib joint, not some no flavored chain place. This is it. We spent $12 and had enough food for dinner and lunch the next day. We chose the 3 meat dinner, which is your choice of 3 different meats plus sides. I've tried the brisket, pulled pork, pulled... More

I ordered the combination dinner that came with three meats and two sides. The fries were very good. The mac and cheese was okay. The three meats were tender, moist, and tasty (chopped beef, chopped pork, and ribs). The mild sauce is good. The hot sauce is good. Combine the two sauces, and you have a great sauce! The outside...

We had been here several years ago and were passing through town, looked up a BBQ on the GPS (didn't recognize the name). Large place, not crowded recognized the place right away. Wife had a salad with BBQ port on top - she was happy. I had the combination plate - port, beef & ribs. A bit disappointing, port an... More

I have eaten at a lot of bbq restaurants and none is as good as Rib and Loin. We try to eat there as often as we can, they serve the only cole slaw that my son will eat. We have been eating at this place for 15 plus years, never got a bad meal.
