We read about this Nationally Award Winning place last year on a visit, but did not have a chance to try it. We called on New Years Eve to see it they were open. It was about 6pm. They were, but were closing early. We ordered Pulled Pork Plates with fries, fried okra. Baked beans, and corn. The BBQ was... More

The food was fantastic and the service very friendly. We were a group of 11 and they made us feel right at home. The bbq spare ribs had an amazing flavor and very large portions. But you can't miss the banana pudding! Wow that was delicious!

The food was great! Catfish was seasoned and cooked perfectly, hush puppies were delicious! The kids loved the fried bologna sandwich.

We found this gem on a road trip looking for something a little different than fast food. The restaurant is very small but the food was great and the service was excellent.

I'll save you the trouble of looking for a barbecue restaurant. If you're in Chattanooga eat here its the best. Best pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw I've eaten. Don't forget the tater tots.

We gave this restaurant a try today and here is what we think. The atmosphere: Very nice cabin feel that makes the restaurant very cozy and warm. Clean although the entrance to the kitchen doesn't have a door and it showed some clutter stacked up on top of each other that needs to be tidied up or place a door... More

Perfect lunch for a chilly day! My mom and Aunt Betty came for lunch and had a great meal. We all had pulled pork sandwiches with sale and shared the LAST Brunswick stew. Everything was tasty--perfect comfort cue! Service is friendly and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. Y'all come on out try it!

Food is tasty and reasonably priced but not the sort up to its ratings. Service is very friendly and quick. Restaurant is very small with only a few tables in a non descript strip mall. Good neighborhood place but don't go for the atmosphere. Very "unfancy".
