Our family ordered take-out from Shuford's the first night of our vacation. While it doesn't look like much on the outside, don't judge this book by its cover! The pork, chicken, and beef brisket were all absolutely amazing and the sauces, especially the mild, were tremendous. All sides we ordered (cole slaw, baked beans, crinkle fries, etc.) were also great.... More

Shuford's offers tasty barbecue, even for this visitor who isn't a big barbecue fan. When we visit our Signal Mountain family, it's our " go-to" place for convenient, reasonably priced takeout.

This place delivers consistently good food. The kids just cannot get enough of the okra, and I am a big fan of the slaw. Of course, the barbecue is excellent. Jeff smoked and delivered a suckling pig for a party I set as a surprise for my wife. What a hit! I ordered extra thinking the pig may not be... More

It may look a little run down from the outside, but don't miss this place for the best bbq in Chattanooga! The staff is always friendly and attententive. The food is great, whether your having pulled pork, beef, ribs or sausage! The portion size and prices are great!

We enjoyed a delightful meal with the Owner of Shuford's Smokehouse learning about the history of his place and the $10,000 price tag he had to pay for the "Secret Recipe". He has of course improved on the selection and variety of dishes offered. A unique, No Frills place to eat.

Shuford's was recommended by the host at the Chattanooga Whiskey company across from the Choo Choo. He lit up when we talked about it so we had to try it. The place is tiny but the gal working at the counter knows her stuff. We had the chicken and pork combo with okra, tater log (which is homemade tater chips)... More

Our first time at Shufords, we came inside the building and didnt see anyone to instruct us or any signs so we just seated ourselves. The men beside us graciously told us that we actually had to go inside the next little building over to place our order, then come back and find a table. So we went thru the... More

While vacationing in Chattanooga, we wanted to eat some good BBQ. This place is not fancy, but the food is good and the price is right. Do not leave without eating banana pudding! We had pork and ribs, mac and cheese (delicious), fried okra, coleslaw, and baked beans. Everything was good, although I wish we had tried the hot sauce... More

Shuford's has great BBQ, be it traditional pork sandwich, ribs or chicken and the prices are very reasonable. This is a place you go for takeout as the dinning area has no amenities and leaves a lot to desired. But hay who cares when the food is this good.

Stand inside for just a few minutes, and you quickly realize that this place is something special. There are no strangers that eat here. Seemingly every patron is a regular, and even newcomers are treated just that way. It's more than smoked meats in here, it's a bustling hub of friends and family. Shuford's Smokehouse takes the classic barbecue joint and mixes in a heaping helping of southern hospitality, and the food? The food's good, you can bet on that.
