Based on reviews here, we stopped on our trip from Atlanta to Nashville. WOW! Glad we did. We had ribs and chicken salad sandwich. Both very good. This place was so good, we stopped again on the way back home.

As others have done, we used Trip Advisor to find this place. It's easy to miss, the only sign by the road is on the side of their truck. We had to wait for a table, ultimately sharing with another couple. The food? Wonderful! If we lived in Chattanooga, this would quickly become a regular place. Don't miss this little place with great food.

Stopped by driving back home to Florida, saw the reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a shot. Small joint, only about 5 or 6 tables but the food feels home cooked and is delicious! Well worth the stop.

We stopped here as we passed through Chatt as the reviews were stellar. We weren't very impressed. Other reviewers mentioned the dining area is small, so we were prepared for that. The staff was nice and pleasant. We ordered onion rings as an appetizer which tasted liked your typical freezer food. I had the spare rib plate with baked beans and green beans. My hubby had a bbq chopped beef plate with coleslaw and fries. The sauce on the ribs was good but some of my ribs were overcooked (the skin was tough and some bites were really dry and hard to chew). Both beans were ok. The chopped beef was not very tasty. We wish there was extra bbq sauce. It would have been nice if there were extra flavors of bbq too (such as a spicy bbq). Both plates were served with texas toast. Portions of thr meals were plenty. We would probably check out a different bbq place next time we pass thru.

I was in Chattanooga for a weekend and saw the revue on tripadvisor, so we made the trek to this restaurant.
We were expecting a hole in the wall but this was that and more, also a tad dirty. The staff were friendly if a tad inappropriate, we got a lovely demo on how small the men's toilet was.
We had fried mushrooms which were ok , I had the small rib platters with fries and beans. The fries were frozen ones and the ribs were very tender but bland, the beans were good. My hubby had the pork platter with coleslaw and beans, he enjoyed it.
Overall it wasn't bad but if this is the number 2 restaurant in Chattanooga then maybe I'll wait til I get home til eat dinner!
