Couch's BBQ has been around for a long time. It's not a big fancy place, but it is clean and offers a nice dinning experience. Great smoke flavor in their sliced pork BBQ sandwich. The ribs are some of the best in the Chattanooga area....More

This place has been around forever and it looks as such. It has remained traditional with little creature comforts or upgrades added. That's what makes it quant and inviting. BBQ is decent, pies are great. Value is and added perk,,,, not very expensive.

Stopped in while driving thru on 75. All meats are sliced not chopped. Not my favorite way to enjoy BBQ but not bad. Sides were the star of our lunch. Corn is creamed and sweet, fries and onion rings are yummy and the green beans...More
