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

I have been visiting and enjoy eating at Rib & Loin for several years. They have a room for private group meetings which we utilize once a month. A wide choice of BBQ as well as many other items on the menu. Stop in for a visit...friendly folks.

When you have a surprise herd to feed, this is your place! Drive thru and get meat by the pound ready to serve, + sides, buns, drinks, reasonably priced and quite tasty!!

We eat here often and the food is good as well as the service. The prices are reasonable. If you are in the mood for some BBQ, Rib and Loin is a good option.

I've normally ordered from the brained location, so maybe it's just the Hixson location that has the issue. #1 The potato salad was flooded with pimentos (the red pepper inside of the olive) & lacked relish, mustard, salt and pepper....

You can get BBQ dinners, ribs, pulled pork or beef. I love the stuffed baked potato with all the fixins plus you get beef or pork. Don't know where they get potatoes so large but it takes two days to eat it.

I had the pork plate with fried okra and baked beans. The pork was well cooked and finely chopped. The hot sauce they had was excellent. The baked beans were very good as well. I can't say too much about the okra, i believe it was frozen. The meal also came with a piece of texas toast. Overall, a very... More
