“Walking back into time, and GREAT FOOD.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2012

This place has been here in the area a very long time. They recently gave the place a little more room, but keeping some of the nastalgic feel of times past. Lots of items and furnishings are still the same. The son is working the place more now a days it seems, but the food is still done awesome. The BBQ is sliced, rather than pulled. The homemade HOT SLAW is a true delight and a must try, but go easy. I can eat tons of it, but it's hot as fire, so check it out slowly. They also still make the homemade pies, and you can still get the old cokes in the bottles. Fun, fun place to eat. Everyone should try this place at least once. Oh, and for the non-red meat eaters, they DO have smoked chicken sliced as well. ~ Jeffrey S.

“Great Tennessee BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2012

The meat is dry and you add the sauce to your liking. Delicious. Sides are so-so - fries are good. Stick to the bbq which is delicious and the pies which are all home made.

“A hidden gem for barbecue!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2012

I've been eating at Couch's for over 40 years! (Yes, I'm that old!). This place is just about the same as it was all those years ago with the only changes being a few (very few) cosmetic updates. The barbecue is great and you can still get Coca-Cola in GLASS BOTTLES! Make the effort to stop by here for a great plate of barbecue. How to find it: Go to the Ooltewah Cracker Barrel and drive on past it for about another 2 miles. Can't miss it.

“Family Favorite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

Simple bar-b-que but a family favorite. When out of town family comes in, we always plan a trip to Couch's. You can buy Cokes in bottles there.
