Very Good BBQ!

Visited here twice now with friends and both times the food was very good. One time we had the ribs and another time we had the pulled pork. Both were delicious. Portions were reasonable for the price. Great service at lunch. We would eat here again.

You can tell when you have fresh pit BBQ and when its been older than a day. This place does high volume and the meats are fresh! In addition to the great quality of meat, the side dishes are "smack yo momma" good!

I love pork ribs and get them every time I go! They are good but seem to be dry a lot of the times. They are always nice to replace the ones that are dry but it would be nice if they would do this before serving them!

Rib & Loin has great barbeque and friendly service. They have the best barbeque in Hixson and the price is okay.

Also just voted one of the best Bar-B-Q places in Chattanooga for 2015. I like everything here the pulled pork, their baked beans and slaw are very good and I really enjoy their ribs. Service is always good...probably is the overall best bar-b-q in Chattanooga and they have other good menu selections as well...for those who don't want bar-b-q.

The pork barbecue is consistently great. The stuffed potatoes are excellent and the staff is always friendly. I've never had a bad meal there.

The food we got was excellent ..... I held out on the EXCELLENT rating for the restaurant because though I asked for extra Sour Cream twice, I finished my baked potato without it because everyone was almost done and I didn't want to make them wait for me.

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.
