HillbillyWilly's BBQ
Ranked #14 of 922 Restaurants in Chattanooga
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: USD 6 - USD 30
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: Folks have compared our barbecue to other styles but no other barbecue compares to our taste! Maybe it's the unique design of our smoker that brings out the natural flavor of our "fall off the bone" meat. Maybe it's our homemade sauce that makes you forget your table manners because its so finger-licken-good! Maybe it's because our pork is all hand pulled so you only receive the best selected meat from our cuts. Maybe it's the made from scratch delicious, decadent, southern desserts! Maybe you should just try it for yourself and see what everyone is talking about! When you order just tell 'em to make-er-saucy!"

Stopped here for lunch on a road trip north and it's probably one of the smartest decisions I have made in my life. Hillbilly Willy's is making some amazing BBQ. We ordered the Half Slab Plate with fried okra and mac and cheese and a Pulled Pork Sandwich. The ribs are some of the best I have ever eaten. The meat falls right off the bone and it is so tasty. The sandwich was delicious as well. The sauce on the sandwich is nice and spicy and not too sweet in my opinion. The okra was extra crunchy and was also some of the best I have ever had. The staff was very friendly. Until I am in the area again I will dream about the next time I can eat at Hillbilly Willy's BBQ.

One of the best barbecue restaurants ever. The food is outstanding, the service also outstanding. It is also an excellent restaurant for takeout. Their barbecue sauce can be purchased which was the best.

This is a great place for great BBQ. Had the pork sandwich, served with the Cole slaw on the sandwich! This place is not fancy, you go there for the “BBQ”. It is close enough to I24 to make it a good lunch spot when traveling through Chattanooga!

I ordered brisket dinner - meat was very lean & juicy. My wife ordered a pulled chicken sandwich and there must have been 1/2 lb of chicken in it. Chicken was not overdone & seasoned just right for us. Portion of beef was also generous.

Congratulations, you are on the right track to locating some of the best Southern BBQ in The South. I am a local and this is where I go to get BBQ because George and his family can smoke meats better than I can. Homemade sides. Kid friendly. Yeah, it's in a strip mall, that's great, I'm getting my money's worth because they are not paying high rent. They smoke the meats right there on the premises, walk around back and see the huge smokers. They have a clean work space that is right in view of everyone driving by Browns Ferry Road. When they have a smoker full of meats the intoxicating smell will make you hungry even if you've already eaten.
This is a family run business, family who take pride in their product and their hospitality.
You will not be disappointed to have dinner here in the shadow of Lookout Mountain.
