Wednesday, October 3, 2007

Sugar’s Ribs, located at 2450 15th Street on the side of Missionary Ridge, will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Oct. 8 at 2 p.m.

Called the restaurant for “the purist barbecue fan,” Sugar’s Ribs serves freshly cooked barbecue, grilled onions, mo' rockin' stew, grilled cornbread sticks and a variety of sauces.

Reminiscent of old-fashioned, roadside-style barbecue, Sugar's Ribs, not only serves up great food, but offers exceptional views of the surrounding mountains and downtown Chattanooga in a comfortable atmosphere.

Lawton and Karen Haygood are the owners of Sugar’s Ribs. The couple also own two other popular area restaurants, the Canyon Grill on Lookout Mountain and the Boathouse Rotisserie & Raw Bar on Amnicola Highway.

Sugar’s Ribs is the perfect place to dine and listen to classic hits on the jukebox or watch your favorite team on the big screen TV. Or you may choose to eat and enjoy the view from the patio area.

Downstairs is a private party room with seating for up to 150 people. Amenities include a full bar, dance floor, juke box, three large screen televisions, DVD player and patio seating.

Sugar's Ribs is booking football parties, class reunions, and Christmas parties. It also offers full off-premise catering. "We will set-up a serving buffet, serve your guests, and clean up the mess," said Jackie Mayak, who is in charge of catering. "You don’t have to lift a finger."

Sugar's Ribs is open seven days a week from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. For more information call Jackie Mayak at 423-826-1199.
