We get take out

Nice when you have a group and you can share a big order. We use this for birthday parties at the house and get take out ribs and pork.

We recently traveled across country. We tried a BBQ place in Arkansas that was supposed to have the "best BBQ in the south". It was indeed good but it didn't compare to Rib & Loin. Anytime we eat BBQ at a different location, we always end up saying "its not as good as Rib & Loin".

Food was okay, but the barbecue was a letdown. Probably would not return again. Maybe I just have a high standard for good barbecue! Service wasn't bad though.

We ate at the Rib and Loin on a Saturday at lunch. We were seated immediately and our server was very nice and helpful. The meat was very good quality- lean and no fat. However, I noticed as soon as we walked in that there was no rich, smoky smell that made your mouth water and the taste was missing... More

We have been here many times for their barbecue place. Not a chain (although 2 in Chattanooga)! Very friendly staff, big plate of food. Relaxed family atmosphere. Have visited for lunch and dinner, and have taken out of town visitors.

BBQ was really good. Wait staff was very friendly and cooked our fries extra crispy! Ribs were good too. I will be back

Good fast service and solid food. Not the best BBQ in Chattanooga but decent and fairly priced. Its also a good quick stop if you need good food in a pinch.

We have been customers since opened several years ago. I rate their stuffed baked potato as the best served. I do prefer the pulled pork to their ribs, but that is a matter of choice. Carolyn is a fan of the Jr dinners. Service is always excellent, Premises clean and inviting. A+ for consistency.

We have been eating here for years. They have the best pulled pork and beef as well as ribs in Tennessee. It is a local business and has survived this long by offering quality food at reasonable prices
