Well we read the reviews and they were good so we went for it. Should have followed my gut, 4 pm on a Monday there was only 1 customer in the entire gigantic restaraunt, my gut said leave. But we were there so we went ahead and ordered. I had the combo plate, pulled pork chicken and beef with Mac... More

Stopped in for dinner while passing through. Pretty typical BBQ restaurant. Service was friendly and fast. Dinner was tasty and a good value for what we got.

Excellent family spot for good barbecue. They serve a pulled version of pork, chicken, and beef. All have great flavor!! The baked pork potato is one of my favorites and got to have the onion rings. Great for families or groups!

Just passing through Chattanooga and wanted some good BBQ. Look no place else. Everyone is so friendly. Warm dinner rolls with the meal. I had the large beef sandwich which was huge. Didn't even finish it. My girlfriend had the small pork sandwich which was nearly as big as mine. Prices were reasonable as well.

The food was delivered quickly, as ordered, and it was hot. The waiter was very friendly and he checked back and refilled drinks, then suggested dessert.

We stopped in after looking for hours at places on line to eat we actually chose this because of the interesting name. The food and service here are amazing! TRY THE ONION RINGS! Prices are great for the amount of food you get.

I had a small BBQ pork sandwich and onion rings for lunch. The service was pretty fast. The restaurant wasn't busy at the noon hour but there was a long line of cars in the drive-through. The pork is chopped very fine. There is a small cup of slaw on the plate. There is no sauce on the pork, but... More

Slow service, dry barbecue that was tough and frankly, tasted old...all for about a 3-star price. In all fairness, this local chain has other locations around town, and they might not be as bad. But as for this one...a waste of time and money.

I have been coming here since they opened. This is one of my favorite BBQ stops anywhere. Start with their sweet tea and then all you have to do is decide what to eat. I love it all, I usually get pork sandwich with an order of slaw and a bbq pork stuffed baked potato.
