‘It’s that flava’

picture James Massengill, owner of Chatt Smoke House, has been in business for more than 7 years and has been in the same location on MLK. Over the years he has acquired a lot of regulars who will tell you, Chatt Smoke House has the best barbecue in Chattanooga.

The meat is slow cooked daily using charcoal and hickory wood. The rub is James' own original recipe and so is the sauce. Even though they aren't on the menu; call him ahead of time and he will make a special batch just for you.

Chatt Smoke House recipes are all James' originals - his rubs, sauce, chilli and cole slaw. Unlike other restaurant's, Chatt Smoke House hot dogs are grilled and come with homemade chilli.

If you haven't tried Chatt Smoke House, you should. Once you eat there you will come back for more.

Such nice gentlemen and yummy BBQ. Our family had the hot dog, beef, and chicken quarters. SO good. We were also given fruit -- apriums! Thanks for the fruit lesson and warm welcome!!

Nothing fancy just good down home food. The best ribs in town and great portion size. People are very welcoming in that entire town. If I visit there again, I'll go back for more!!!

When I ordered my food I was told I would be back. She was correct! This first-timer now wants to go back to try the okra and potato salad. My ribs were really really good. Thank you for the great experience and see you soon.
