If you drive too fast you might miss this restaurant but it is well worth the stop. We got two full slabs of ribs for four people and we were stuffed. You get french fries, coleslaw and baked beans with each platter. We threw in the extra onion rings too which delicious. This is a barbecue joint that has the... More

We popped in while visiting Chattanooga. Unfortunately we showed up at 2pm and they were closing that day at 3pm for maintenance. However the service was fast and the food was really good so we were able to have lunch with the kids and not go beyond 3pm. The BBQ meat was very tender and I loved the bbq beans.... More

If you are a tourist...swing by for an authentic southern experience. Barbecue is good, price is right...service is sweet (and you will be called "Hon"). Can get crowded right at noon but come a little early or late....get the fried okra if you have not had it before.

I had take out... The BBQ was pretty terrific. Even their sides were good. I believe a true test is if they have decent sides and they passed!

Pretty darn good BBQ... We all have our favorite BBQ; try this place and it may very well be high on your list. Their pulled pork is very good, so are their sides. Baked beans, potato salad and coke slaw. I'll visit this joint again!

I just paid $12.46 for two eggs scrambled, 1 sausage patty, a biscuit/roll, gravy and coffee. The biscuit looked like a biscuit but was more like a roll and it had been microwaved. The gravy was cool (cold) and the eggs had a tremendous amount of butter on them. I should have called them on it, but I was in... More
