About Sunset BBQ

Our History

Sunset Inn BBQ was formed in the late 1940's in Chattanooga, Tennessee by Otis Washington. His intention was to serve a quality product at a good value. He created a homemade barbecue sauce that has become our famous selling point.


Mrs. Madie Washington took over after his death and carried on the business serving the Chattanooga community until 2006. After her passing the Sunset name changed to honor Mrs. Madie for raising two kids and dealing with the difficulties of running a business, and is now called ”Madie’s BBQ”.

All of our chicken, ribs, and pulled pork is slow cooked on a hickory pit. We cook it until its good and tender basting it in our homemade sauce. We are constantly adding and changing the menu to attract and to satisfy our customers.

“The ribs are the best I've ever had for as long as i can remember, they actually need to do more to bring in more business because if everyone knew just how good these ribs are, they would have a chain of restaurants.”
