I really can't say it was bad, it just wasn't all that great. Like the title says, just OK. I've had better, I've had worse. I will say I was a little disappointed with the portion of meat in the so-called large plate. May or may not go back, just won't make a special trip.

Delicious! Very nice people with top notch service. The food is priced very well with a very reasonable preparation time.

We forgot to rate this place the last time we were in Chattanooga, but we made sure to stop and eat there again. Prices are incredibly reasonable. Portions are more than adequate. Quality is great. Customer service is out of this world. Mostly family working there (maybe all). Ambiance is old fashioned. Just a nice place to eat good food.

It was small and more like grandma's kitchen which was fine, Can't wait to go back. May go again in October 2014.

Some good priced and good BBQ on the way to Chattanooga. The place and people are kinda quirky but in a friendly way but I don't know what BBQ place isn't.

Was here almost a year ago and am passing thru Chattanooga again and I wanted to get on trip advisor to make sure I wouldn't choose this place again. It was truly one of the worst places I've ever eaten. We took our significant leftovers as we didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings and threw them in the dumpster outside... More

We stopped by with a party of 6 on a Saturday night around 6pm. We were seated immediately and while they were very busy with the drive-through as people have mentioned, we were waited on within a few minutes. The portions are a bargain for the price. Catfish is only on Saturday and is the best thing I ate. The... More

Best BBQ I've ever had!!! No kidding, It was amazing, the staff is friendly, the owner comes out to check on everything. We had a GREAT experience. We went early, thankfully, cuz by the time we left, people were waiting out the door. It's a small place, which reminded me of my grandmother's dining room. I wish I lived closer... More

I never write reviews. I use trip advisor religiously and it never seems to let me down. We stopped here as we drive through Chattanooga. Went to the counter to order and the older gentleman asked us to take a seat and they would bring us menus. We sat and waited 20 minutes while we watched the waitress chat with... More
