1st order of business: get the buffet. They have fruit that couldn't be fresher if they were serving it on the farm. 2nd order of business: get an omelette. The gentleman making them is very personable, friendly, and very talented in the world of eggs. 3rd order of business: say hi to Janice. She is an awesome waitress, extremely friendly, and she remembered us from Saturday morning to Sunday morning. I'm extremely impressed by this place - I can't wait for my next vacation!

Choo Choo Barbecue

3951 Ringgold Rd

Reviews:
I've eaten here many times and the barbecue is always on point. The reason they're voted best in Chattanooga is simple. It's just that good. I got the pulled pork plate with Texas toast and macaroni and cheese and fried okra for my two sides. Stop here if you want some really good barbecue.

Lockhart’s Fire & Smoke Catering

1829 Carter St

Reviews:
Best BBQ in town. Located at The Chattanooga Market downtown Chattanooga every Sunday and at area festivals they smoke BBQ, hand pull meat, make their own hot sauces but my favorite is the BBQ Sundae. They cater; BBQ pork, beef, chicken, ribs, Jamaican Jerk Chicken, low country shrimp boil, they aren't scared to try anything

Madie’s Bar-B-Que

964 Dodson Ave
Chattanooga, 37406
Reviews:
I heard from some real BBQ experts that this was THE best place in the South for ribs so I had to check this out for myself. Madie's (or Sunset Inn) is a total dive joint in the heart of the ghetto and it looks kinda scary from the outside but don't let that deter you. The lady who owns the joint is super nice and has PERFECTED BBQ. Not sure what her secret is, but these are slow-roasted, cooked all day, fall-of-the-bone meat with the best sauce I've ever had (it has a bit if a spicy kick to it). The best ribs I've ever had... And I've been to Memphis AND Texas! The beans and potato salad was pure heaven too! Generous portions. Forget those franchises and big name restaurants and tourist traps. This is a family owned, backyard cooking at its finest!

Local place where everyone is friendly and the beer is always ice cold and the place is always clean. Pool tables, live music, darts, karaoke, BBQ, liquor and beer... and it seems everyone knows everyone.

McHale’s Brewhouse

724 Ashland Ter
Chattanooga, 37415
Reviews:
We went here tonight thanks to a tip. First impression upon entering is that it is smoky as heck. Funny how that used to be so common. Even at Chili's. But now it is strange. Didn't bother us, though. They make their own beer and it is excellent. You can see the vats (or whatever you call the giant containers that hold the beer) to your left immediately upon entereing. A true microbrewery, right? Wife got the light beer and I got the sampler. We decided to split a reuben and their onion rings. OUTSTANDING sandwich and the rings were the best I've had in my life. A great band was playing tonight. Johnny B Band? They did a great version of Rocky Top which brought in the tips. Also played stuff from B.B. King to Hank Williams. Overall, this is a top-notch neighborhood bar/restaurant.
Great micro and pool.
Being a brew kinda gal leads me to all sorts of places. McHale's being one of them. I have been visiting bars, dives, and hole-in-the-wall, surly but delightfully questionable establishments since I was a wee tot. Consider it a family tradition. Somehow McHale's has a funny way of making me nostalgic for those younger days! I have been several times and have enjoyed speaking with whoever's running the keep each visit. I had the pleasure of ordering fish & chips once, and was blown away by the tartar sauce. The tartar sauce!! I was able to have a nice philosophical conversation with the head o' the house about what makes a proper tartar sauce. All while sipping on one of the most fabulous reds I've ever drank. The Scottish. Let me tell you that the Scottish is one of the finest beers around. Period. I heart this beer. It's crisp, sharp, with a slight acid tang that isn't overwhelming and a pure delight to send down the gullet. I enjoy every last drop of this stuff! While the atmosphere is...intriguing...it shouldn't detract you from trying one of the best micro breweries in Chattanooga!

Miss Griffins Footlong Hot Dogs

847 E Main St
Chattanooga, 37408
Reviews:
Great place to get a dog. I had one foot long kitchen sink and decided to get another one called cony with slaw. It is hard to find a place in Chattanooga where the crack heads are not touching the food and contaminating it.
Went there for the first time today for lunch. It was very small and very busy. I loved the atmosphere. Very simple and just as you'd imagine it was back in the 40's. And then when the hot dog came out it was sliced in half so it was easy to manage. None of the toppings were just slapped on there. It was all neatly on there. It was probably the best hot dog I've had. I'll be back soon!

Lookout Lake Bed & Breakfast

3408 Elder Mountain Rd
Chattanooga, 37419
Reviews:
Lookout Lake isn't the best B&B ever, but it's close AND it's also such an incredible value that a five star rating seems insufficient. I'll start with my minor complaints - The breakfast bacon was papery and weird. I think it may have been "light" bacon - if you eat a two-dimensional strip it isn't as bad for you, right? But it also doesn't taste like much, other than salt. - Basic bathroom amenities that you would expect at a hotel or motel - mini shampoo and conditioner, soaps for the shower *and* the sink - were not available. However, the innkeeper directed us to a secret stash of hair products (in full-size bottles) once we asked for it. Okay, now for the myriad pluses - Location - The B&B is situated on the side of Lookout Mountain. Every room overlooks a pretty little private lake and the dainty mountains beyond. The landscaped grounds are lovely and there's a big old deck resting above the water. You feel very far removed from the outside world, but in reality, you're a ten minute drive from downtown Chattanooga. - Interior Design - Dan and I love B&Bs but are turned off by those that are decorated in creepy, Victorian floral patterns. Other than a Stepford Wife, who could possibly find that romantic? Lookout Lake is one of the most tastefully decorated homes I've ever seen. We got to choose from several rooms and each one featured a different set of subdued colors, patterns and remarkably pretty antique wooden furniture (I get the sense that one of the owners has traveled in the Far East extensively). Our bed was large and comfortable and our jacuzzi tub was ENORMOUS! It easily fit the both of us. The water supply was plentiful and piping hot. - The service - The owner was quite warm and helpful throughout our visit. I arrived exhausted and wondered if she had an in-room coffeemaker. She did me one better and brewed a pot in the breakfast room, complete with matching mugs, actual cream and a pitcher of ice water with glasses, assembled on a tray that we could take to our room. We were the only guests that weekend (awesome) and she made breakfast at our chosen time. Oh, best of all, she doesn't live on site! She must live somewhere else on the property, but we had the whole place to ourselves. Bonus! - Breakfast - Again, not the best ever, but it was real, homemade food and we got a different meal each morning (eggs and croissants the first day, eggs and French toast the next day). - Price - All this for $99 a night plus tax. We happened to be in Chattanooga the weekend prior to our wedding anniversary, searching for an apartment in preparation for our upcoming move. But even after we are full-time Chattanoogans, I would love to make a visit to Lookout Lake an anniversary tradition.
