My husband and I stopped here after reading the reviews. While we enjoyed the view and the kitchy decor, I wasn't really impressed with the food. It was just average in my opinion. We had the ribs and I found them to be gristley. We now live in Chattanooga, and have not been back. There are other bbq resteraunts we... More

This was my first trip to Sugar's Ribs but will not be the last. The staff could not have been friendlier and the food was outstanding. This is a casual place and offers a wonderful view of the city if the weather is mild enough to enjoy the porch seating. I highly recommend the bbq chicken plate and the sides... More

Nice outdoor dining available with gas flame heaters and an overlook view of Chattanooga. Awesome food and fast, friendly service. Don't miss the nachos! The pork butt is also incredible.

My Husband and my Brother had both talked about how great the BBQ is here. My first time here and I wasn't impressed at all. First off, I have never been to a BBQ joint that doesn't have baked beans. I was shocked. I love having baked beans with my BBQ. I had ordered the "famous" ribs and it was... More

Chattanooga is lucky to have a number of BBQ options for consideration. Rather than focus on the best, I feel that there is no one stop location that covers all of the regional differences. If your wanting to measure the merit of sugars based upon their ribs, I'll suggest you look elsewhere. The ribs here are slab as opposed to... More
