Very Good Bar-B-Q

This restaurant has been on Hwy. 58 for many years. The Bar-B-Q has always been very good whether we eat in or drive through.The prices are reasonable.

I had the pulled pork, fried okra, and baked beans plate with cornbread. We also had delicious fried pickles to start with. The pork meat was pretty good and I loaded it with the house hot and thick sweet sauce. The meat and sauces was a very good combination. I do not think the beans and okra were home made,... More

We were in town for youth football and the place was recommended. Place looks great, staff was friendly the menu has variety for bar-b- que place. That's were it went bad. Three people tried to get our order but no one followed up on bringing our drinks. It was feast or famished, when he didn't need anything three people would... More

Basic BBQ setup with good food. I had the pulled pork regular sandwich with mustard slaw and it was delicious. The sauces they provide are decent but not amazing I tried them all: sweet, mild, spicy. The service was good and the price was right. Plenty of parking outside.

I had the pulled pork tater and my husband had a cheeseburger with fries. Delicious food. The tater was loaded with meat and my husband enjoyed his burger and fries.

This is a low key, local place, where the bar-b-que is good, the beer is cold, and the people awesome! Each day has a special food or drink item. The loaded potato, cheese balls, and wings are great! Stop in, ask for Amy, and get a draft!

We had originally used another website to plan our vacation out and stop in Chattanooga for a night, and had to have some BBQ. The place we first stopped at closed at 7, and we arrived at 7:05. In a frantic, we used RoadNinja on Android to search for another place that was close to our hotel for food, and... More

Went there about a week ago for lunch. Good specials and service. So we suggested to friends that we go there for dinner on May 10. The food was cold. I have never seen or tasted potato salad so bad. The waitress said their supplier had sent the wrong kind to them. Now, I ask you what is so hard... More

We decided to have dinner close by the house as we were in a bit of a hurry to catch a flight. We had a group of 10 guests and called ahead to be sure they could accomodate us. First, they were out of pork. It was 45 minutes to prepare more. When we received our beef brisket, it was... More

Sweeney's is yet another great BBQ "Mom and Pop" place in Harrison extremely convenient to Chattanooga. Being close to the river, this restaurant is the best incidental place for the boaters and fishermen in the area. My last visit the pulled pork was plentiful, extremely moist, and melt in your mouth tender. You gotta try the mustard slaw among other... More
