Their ribs are great and the Brunswick Stew is superb. If you don't live in the area- it's worth the drive to Fort O.

Whenever we are in the area this is the only place we will go for BBQ. It is a walk-up and order food establishment so there's not really seating but the food could not be better! Prices are great and you will not be hungry after trying the amazing killer potato.

Stopped with family to get some bbq based on reviews. We were NOT disappointed. Ribs were tender, juicy, fell off the bone yummy! Sauce was not too tangy nor too sweet, just right for us. Hot dog was tasty too. Cole slaw was creamy. Fries were really good not overly salty. Prices were quite reasonable. We took it back to... More

Traveling from Lookout Mountain to Chickamauga and wanted something quick. I had the brisket sandwich and the corn nuggets. The brisket was good but the nuggets were terrific. Had a picnic in the park.

Been wanting good BBQ (I'm from Memphis, the capital of BBQ). Found it here. We got the family pack...plenty of meat and 3 sides. The fried okra is the best. Will be frequenting this place a lot.

Best smoked pulled pork & beef brisket I've ever had! Don't much care for bbq sauces but really liked their version. Don't let outside "hole in the wall" appearance put you off. Small easy to miss drive thru on west side of Battlefield Hwy (Hwy 27) about 1 block outside main entrance to Chickamauga. Limited hours into early afternoon. Variety... More

The BBQ is pretty good and so is the slaw. I've never gotten anything bad here, but the sauce is a little bland and thin for my taste. It is walk up or drive thru service and is close to the Chickamauga Battlefield. I like to buy my lunch and eat it at the picnic area of the Battle field.

We were headed to the Chickamauga Battlefield Park, and spotted this place via the aroma of real barbecue, and the smoke rising around the building. As the name suggests, this restaurant is just a small building where you order at the window, and take the food to go. Great ribs and marvelous smoked pork sandwiches, ( they have chicken too,...
