I couldn't wait to find the best bbq in Chattanooga, and it's here! I had a small pulled pork sandwich. They load it with cole slaw and sauce, and it was perfect.

Ordered a loaded Idaho potato. I figured this would be normal size potato with a little pulled pork on top. Boy was I wrong it filled the plate up I reminded waitress that we did not order extra meat she said that was a regular order. The pulled pork was great I was so full after eating that I was...

Yum yum yum!!! LOVE the smoked chicken and pork. So hard to decide what to eat as there are a variety of sides available! Clean, a little slow on service but worth the wait! Located in a small nook along a busy highway, this place is one you want to know about when you are hungry! Eat in or carry... More

Took client out for quick lunch had pulled pork sandwiches and dinner plates. Pork had good smoke flavor and was moist. On sandwich I would ask for sauce on the side. Almost was over powering on taste. Cole slaw was fresh and slightly sweet complemented smoke flavor nicely

Nooga-q is a small locally owned and operated restaurant that serves mostly BBQ. I had the ribs, my wife had the fried catfish. We also had the combo appetizer with fried mushrooms, pickles, and green tomatoes. I thought the mushrooms were excellent and my wife threatened me when I was giving her catfish the eye. So everything I had was... More

found this little place as it was in the local paper. great food! the wings are smoked and then fried. they are a little spicey, but not bad at all. best wings I have ever had. the catfish is wonderful! I had the baked potato with brisket and it was good, but it is huge!

I like the BBQ here, and the family meal pricing is very good, but I tried an appetizer combo here with cheese fries, fried pickels, and mozzarella sticks and all options were pretty bad. Pickles are battered and fried spears, not slices, and I can say definitively now that I prefer slices. Mozzarella sticks I'm sure were frozen out of... More

Little BBQ place, friendly staff. There are a couple of picnic tables in the front if you want to eat outside. Inside there are tables and a small counter/bar. We got ribs and sides. The ribs had a lot of fat/cartilage at the ends, otherwise pretty meaty. I'm from Texas, so didn't really like the sweet tasting BBQ sauce but... More

Had heard a lot about this restaurant and decided this evening to give it a try. Upon arriving there was only a handful of patrons, so it definitely was not busy. My wife ordered the beef and I ordered the pork plate. After about 15 minutes our food was brought to us and the meat, potato, and beans were all... More
