The BBQ is very good & the food plentiful. We were there on a Sunday after church & it was busy however the service was still very good. They also provide take out orders as well as catering.

Had pulled pork, fries, mac and cheese. The pork was dry and not great. Added lots of BBQ sauce since it was dry. Steak fries hot and good but mac and cheese was very hot and mushy like it was cooked earlier today and stored in a very hot line pan or oven. Had food on our table in just... More

For a Barbeque specialty location, the meat is okay and the selections are very limited. They do have a selection of sauces that will help add some taste. The BBQ stuffed potato is s safe bet each time.

Had friends in from Washington State who wanted BBQ. They raved about the food the service and the atmosphere. My mother and I are Vegan so we took our own dressing in and had a big salad that was so fresh and crispy. Just a great experience all around. And prices are very reasonable. Would definitely recommend Rib & Loin... More

The Rib n Loin has the best barbecue and ribs. It is their sauce that makes it so good. I have eaten there so many times and have never bad a bad experience. I do not care for the potato salad because they use bell peppers.

There are a lot of BBQ places to eat in Chattanooga. Rib and Loin is one of the better ones. They do a great catering business too.

I went here and got a BBQ chicken plate. Chicken was very dry and had a green tint to it. You add your own BBQ which was kind of bland. I thought I would give them a second chance and got ribs the next time and they were very fatty. Some people like that but in not a big fan.... More
