Very nice. The waitress was very good. Took out order and stopped back a number of times to see if we needed anything.

We have driven by this place on several occasions and never stopped in. Today we had some extra time and decided to give it a go! The service was excellent the sides were great and the ribs were tender and fall apart juicy! Didn't have room for dessert but noticed everyone else having banana pudding and chocolate pie! Unlike most... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. She ordered the Turkey sandwich, but the turkey was SO dry and tough she sent it back, and she doesn't do that a lot! I had the beef brisket sandwich and my bun was soaked in juice ( maybe to moisten the meat?) that I couldn't pick it up to eat it.... More

I am glad that you loved the ribs and service. Our brisket is rubbed with our meat rub and smoked. If you felt it needed more flavor, one of our savory homemade sauces would have been the extra taste you needed to make your meal more than average. More

We just happened to be in the area at the local flea market and was looking for a place to eat. Was thrilled to see the trip advisor flag waving us in indicating a 2016 award winner. Not sure if the all you can eat ribs is a regular thing, but we were there on a Sunday and enjoyed it... More

This was recommended by someone on our Lost Sea Tour (which I also recommend by the way). Good choice. Food was great. It seemed like a slow night which may be why service was so fast but our waitress was on top of everything. I would stop here again if in the area.

Loved it, try the pulled pork or smoked Philly cheese steak. I had the pulled pork sandwich and wife had the Philly. We both loved our meal.

We were greeted promptly. The server was friendly and everything we had was good. The only thing missing was beer but tea was excellent.

My husband and I stopped here for a quick lunch on our way back to Chattanooga. The building itself was cute and there were a lot of cars parked outside so we thought it looked promising. We both got the lunch pork BBQ sandwich special. It wasn't pulled pork it was more like chopped pork with the sauce mixed in.... More
